Cherie,

Do another video but this time put a paper towel under the pot as you boil the water (I think I showed you that when you where here.). That's one of my favorite demos. Another point to make is that the hob is safer because it will not come on without a pot on it. Likewise if you take the pot off and forget to turn it off it senses that and shuts itself down in seconds.

Site with lots of good links: Induction Cooking

Some cool pics below:

Bob I took the RV gas range top out of our bus because of the heat generated and bought two portable induction cook tops. (I do most of our cooking outdoors and the cook-tops are only for rainy days. Everyone is right about the speed up and also down. If something is boiling (like sauce) you turn down the dial and instantly the sauce stops boiling and goes to a simmer. All with NO heat generated.

Go to any good kitchen store from Dillards to Bed Bath and Beyond and / or dedicated pots and pans stores and you will find triple layer (bottoms) stainless steel pans, that is what to use. cast iron will soak up too much of the heat.

Good luck, you will enjoy your new stove, and cooking again.

Still listening and learning.  Have units on the way. Pot and skillet  next.  prob 1 of each we have a electric skillet if we need a 2nd skillet.  Mostly two of us when we are eating in. Our longest trip is in the winter for 3 month run to the sun .   Bob

Do the induction cooktops cause any dangerous electrical interference or strong magnetic fields?  Could they cause trouble with pacemakers or hearing aids?

Bob,don't over invest in pots and pans induction is 1930 technology all the pots and pans they sell just for induction cooking were not around then cast iron works good try it before buying new.

She also has this little gadget named a interface disk that allows you to use any type cook ware on a induction cook top she very seldom uses it but she has it
 
Somethings I don't eat if not cooked in cast iron like potatoes you know the old country boy thing lol and she makes perfect eggs in the cast iron skillet adds a little butter adds about table spoon of water covers the skillet in 3 or 4 minutes you have eggs that look like the photo on menus.
 
 She has here nice cookware but we don't travel with much of it it stays home and you don't use it to test a thermostat I can tell you that one for sure

good luck

No interference that I know of. I wear two hearing aids and have never noticed a thing. The cook tops use magnetic impulses not microwave signals so they are not dangerous. The amazing thing is the lack of ambient heat in the coach. Just the perfect situation.

Those cook tops were 240v. Are you wiring for 240v? Will you be able to use these if you are not on pole?

Thanks for the info guys.  I don't think that Mom & Dad have any of those things but you never know what tomorrow will bring or who will stop in for a visit.  It's my brother Eric who is getting the new house and he is using my stove right now.  The toter does not have a cooktop so an induction unit might be a good fit there.

I'll stick to my good ol' propane stove and oven.  You don't have to worry about an electrical power source when using it-and it's dependable.  I have a Fantastic fan right over the stove with a ventless power hood-so the power hood blows the air out and the Fantastic fan sucks it up and out.  Never had a problem with heat-that's what A/C's are for. I like not having to fire up the generator everytime you have to cook-or if you're cooking with the inverter, charging the batteries sooner.
But-then again if you're all electric-this maybe a good way to go to save electricity versus a standard heating stove.  Good Luck, TomC
