I wish I would have realized how expensive "Induction" pans would be. I also didn't realize that the induction burners would only work with those pans. If buying an Induction Stove top plan on another small investment in the cookware! =) Don't get me wrong though, I do like my stove and would buy it again. I'm always side tracked and forget to boil water for the pasta or rice. Induction is an awesome time saver. Heat Distribution The induction zone (2 right burners) will only Pb (power boil) 1 burner at a time. I don't know if all induction tops are like this but I wish I could Pb 2 at a time. Durability Have had it for 18 months with no problems. Design I would have liked a 5th burner. The placement of the back right burner just doesn't work for me. I never use it as it interferes with the front one. I do love that that the left burners can be turned into one for a griddle or just expanded when using a larger pan.
