Great Cooktop, but.........

 

I was looking to replace an old vintage Tappan electric cooktop. I originally considered installing a gas unit but when I read about the efficiency of induction cooktops I did some research and decided to take the leap. This saved me some money as I ...

Am Glad I Bought It !

 

I've wanted an induction stove since Jenn-air came out with one years again and then abandoned it when US buyers did not flock to them. I wish I had purchased one then, so I was not about to delay this time! After agonizing that Sears was not 'elite' ...

Cooks like gas without the excess radiated heat !

We enjoy cooking out here in the sticks, unfortunatly natural gas is not available. After our old electric cooktop bit the big one, we looked into several options. Propane was a possibility, but expensive to install, and cook with. We looked at several...
