THE 2019 YALE HOME SHOW

The Best Induction Cooktops for the 2019 Yale Home Show

It's a great time to see our staff chefs show off the newest products and the technologies in our live kitchens in both our Boston and Framingham locations, plus special offers from the best brands. 

The Home Show is February 9-10 & 16-18

  • Receive up to $1,000 store credit for lighting, plumbing, vacuums with qualifying appliance package purchases from Samsung, KitchenAid, Bosch, and more (not all brands qualify)
  • 0% financing available with approved credit
  • 10% off all decorative lighting & up to 20% off clearance lighting

Induction is the best cooking surface available. It's faster than the hottest professional rangetop and can simmer better than the best electric cooking surface

Following are the best induction cooktops to consider. Because we performed 34,687 service calls in 2018, you will also see reliability statistics of all brands as well as how induction works and the benefits of an induction cooktop.

These recommendations are in the 36-inch configuration but every brand also produces 30-inch induction cooktops as well. With that in mind, these are the best five.

What to Consider When Buying an Induction Cooktop

First off, your pans need to be magnetic (don’t worry, most are) and if you plan to buy some new pots and pans, you don’t have to spend a fortune buying 'special pans'. As long as a magnet sticks to the bottom you are good to go.

If you plan on putting a wall oven below your induction cooktop, pay special attention to the manufacturer specifications. Only certain brands and models are approved to have an oven placed below them in the same cabinet.

Which Induction Cooktop Should I Buy?

All five make compelling arguments for being the best cooktop. Samsung, Thermador, and Jenn-Air have compelling rebate programs.

Samsung has the Blue Flame and great technology for a decent price.

Jenn-Air has the best price and a user-friendly configuration. Miele has the most powerful induction burner at a whopping 7700 watts.

Thermador has the sensor moving the power when you move the pan. It is certainly the most forward technologically.

The chefs at Yale love the Wolf for the response. It is their favorite induction cooktop. For odd shaped pans, it is the best cooktop.

In terms of reliability, Wolf and Jenn-Air are on our most reliable induction cooktop brand by a wide margin at least over the last 12 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are induction cooktops better than gas or electric?

Induction cooktops are better than gas or electric for a variety of reasons:

  • It's safer as the glass surface does not get hot (only residual heat from the pan).
  • They require less ventilation due to less heat emission.
  • Cooking times are faster saving energy and cooking time.
  • Response times are faster for specific recipes and they will simmer lower.
  • Cleaning is easy because spills do not bake on.
  • Induction cannot be activated without a metal pan, so it cannot be accidentally turned on by a child.

Do induction cooktops use more electricity?

Induction cooktops will also use less electricity due to their speed.

How long do induction cooktops last?

As with most built-in appliances the average lifespan of an induction cooktop should be around 10-15 years or more. The working elements are protected under glass, which helps.
