I have only seen induction stoves in showrooms, and would be loathe to give up my gas cooktop (at least I can see the flame!) Take care of your hand!

I worked on induction in Europe with Michel Bras, I now have a 8ftx6ft induction suite being constructed for the opening of my restaurant. The speed and control of heat is amazing.

Unfortunately at our own expense, time after time, we learn by our painful mistakes. And if I had not done that many times before, in some form or fashion in my own past, I would not be so smug. Isn’t life grand?!? Bill…smile, for there will sure be more.

I use the induction unit to warm things directly in a stainless steel bowl. Need to warm up some glucose before adding to your recipe? Briefly pass it over the induction unit a few times while stirring. Presto! I know, it doesn’t help your sore hand, but… better than nothing, right?
