New Induction Cooktops from GE Are the Highest Wattage Ever

Illustration for article titled New Induction Cooktops from GE Are the Highest Wattage Ever

Our cooking experience barely goes beyond "Fire. Bad. Keep. Away," but these GE Monogram and Profile induction cooktops have the highest wattage element from an induction cooktop ever. The 3700-watt cookers use magnetic fields to heat up your food, as opposed to gas or electric cookers. Induction cooking's been around for a while, but as evidenced by the small shot of a bunch of ice cubes sitting on the same plate as a tray of boiling water, this technology is fancy. Just cause they're as close to Star Trek as you're going to come in the kitchen, save for the microwave or something. [GE]

DISCUSSION

A gas stove isn't always an option, although it is generally regarded as superior. The main issue I'd have with an induction cooktop is that I would probably need to replace most of my pots and pans for it (since induction only works with certain materials.)
