What Houzz contributors are saying:
The only heat left in the cooktop itself when you remove a pot is from the pot’s residual heat. This leaves the cooktop cooler to the touch and reduces the risk of burns. This is also great for any spills that may occur while you are cooking. There’s no need to wait for the cooktop to cool down; it’s already cool so you can clean up spills immediately. Induction cooktops come in a variety of sizes and element combinations as well as varying price points.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Cons induction cook tops - Its electronics are not as robust as resistance cook tops and are much more likely to get killed by power surges etc. - The electronics are sensitive to heat, if the cook top is installed directly above the oven make sure you get the cabinets altered to vent through the front (the more ventilation it gets the better). Follow the manufacturers guidelines about clearances and ventilation or you will cook the electronics.
