That would be induction cooktop. You need pans that a magnetic will stick to.

I have a two burner induction in the bus. It has a completely smooth top and is set in totally flush with the corian top and looks very good. we just use it for counter space when not cooking. Think it was 4-5 hundred bucks but its really fast and generates almost no heat.  Can get you more info and a pic if your interested.

Thanks Doug Judy's on line now. What brand did you use? They seem to be in line with the price of the electric smooth cook top I used in past.  Advantage will be no heat after use and therefore probably easier to keep clean. Bob

We LOVE our induction cooktop.

We just did a video "boil off" with our other bus-nut friends Ben & Karen - the video showing off our portable induction cooktop vs their 230v electric range in their Prevost is posted in this blog post here:

Those are sold by wattage Bob be careful and get enough wattage and the more the temp setting and wattage the better she will like it, like everything all the little upgrades will cost you lol ,

Then you can buy a new set of cookware seriously my wife loves the induction cooking pay close attention to the pattern on the top ones with a small pattern don't work as good as a large pattern I found out or so I was told  

good luck

If a magnet sticks and are flat bottom they work Bob just go to Bed Bath and Beyond with a magnet is all I can tell you if it sticks it works and cast iron works on one. FWIW  Sonja paid 2500 for cookware and I cannot tell the difference in taste lol

good luck

Clifford  got  cast iron: don't know why but has been collecting around here for awhile.  will experiment if not grab the magnet and go shopping.  Thanks for the tip.  By  the way hope your health gets better soon! I just now am getting better after 4 months and surgery myself. Sure feels better on the up side.  Best wishes to better health.   Bob

The biggest challenge I've had with cooking on induction is re-thinking how I approach putting together a meal.

In the past, I used to have time to start the heat going, get the oil heated or water boiling - and then assemble my ingredients as needed. 

However, because induction gets the heat up so quickly, I instead have to get whatever I'm going to be needing for phase one of my dish prepared, chopped, etc.  before I turn the heat on.    There's just simply not as much idle time, especially upfront.  Once its up to heat, it's pretty much the same tho.   Oh, and I love that the induction temperature changes are instantaneous, much like cooking on gas.

I've not tried it yet, but I hear that hard boiling eggs is challenging - because eggs need that extended heat ramp up time, which induction doesn't give.  I've seen tutorials and videos out there on the subject, but haven't gotten that far yet with researching it yet.

Enjoy the induction power Smiley

Cherie, I can even boil eggs lol heat the water till it boils turn it off when it stops bubbling drop the eggs in cover the pot and let set for 20 minutes perfect every time see and you thought I was just a pretty face.
Sonja showed me how to do that I would put the eggs in first and bring to a boil on the induction what a mess and they all cracked


good luck
