Is this truly worth the cost those of you that do have induction?? We currently have electric (but have a gas connection too) and a gas grill outside. I have an induction hot plate we use occasionally. I like how easy a smooth top range is to clean up and no gas but I like cooking on gas better.

between electric vs induction it really is night and day, Those hot plates don't have as much wattage so they're not as powerful as a range is my guess too (though i can't recall the induction element wattages off my head)

we've had ours about 3 years give or take. super quick to heat up, no lag like elements in temp control so less burning, and as soon as i flip the switch i can put something on the top. It's like extra counter space while cooking too, safer for kids. sauces i put a paper towel down to prevent cleanup then the pan,etc. With kids. it's a time saver between oh crap off work and i got 30 minutes to get someone fed and to sports...+ small kitchen you can use the top while cooking immediately when remove stuff. In florida summers you do notice a heat difference but kitchen will still get hot, the heat just transfers to pan but seems to be cooler to me.

Auto shutoff is cool too when you remove the pan, no forgetting and leaving burners on.

That said i'm not a fancy cooker or anything just busy and do use my grill in addition the majority of time.

I'm thinking on a hot plate for side of my gas grill instead of the propane side burner (slow to heat up).

I freaked out buying it, but after 3 years i would not go back to electric it would be like wth it's been 8 minutes waiting for this to boil already?

Intriguing...I think gas is a bit overrated and definitely a PITA to clean up. I'm pretty happy with glass cooktops, but the heat control is spotty and definitely slow. You really have to watch it closely. But cleanup is generally simple unless you burn a liquid onto it.

Don't forget a big part of the cost here is the slide in format. Those are almost always 50% more than an equivalent freestanding model. Same with drop-ins.

Bought this exact range from Appliances Connection back in early February.

They advertised the unit as in stock and estimated it would be delivered on the 11th or 12th, but in reality they didn't have the unit in stock and our delivery was on the 24th. We bought our unit around this same price but it came with a $100 MIR, which we discovered takes like 10-12 weeks to process 🙄

The unit itself is pretty good, although I feel like the oven buttons are a little flaky. Sometimes I'll press the button and it just doesn't register anything. Sometimes it's like "oh you leaned across the range, let's register all sorts of presses!" It's a very small issue, really.

The performance of the range is great. I did have to buy some new pots and pans, so if you don't already have an induction range then keep that in mind and do a little research. You can get a passable set of non-stick induction-compatible cookware for $75, and a decent set of clad cookware for $300.

The oven is also very good. It has convection bake plus air fry settings — the air fry is essentially supercharged convection baking. I haven't had great success with it personally. There is a special air-fry rack that you can buy for $50 — I bought it and it didn't magically make things better plus it's a pain to clean. As a plain old oven though it's a much better performer than our previous Jenn-Aire range.

Edit: I consider myself an enthusiast home cook. After this range I would never choose a plain electric cooktop again. Due to our kitchen layout we needed either a downdraft unit or to install a hood from scratch. I'm pretty happy with our choice and would buy this again.

yeah cleanup is tons easier even over conventional glass top even. Since the top doesn't get hot, nothing really burns or bakes onto glass, spill some sauce no problems hour later it's still like it spilled out right over the burner. Yeah you'll get a bit from the hot pan contact but noting like our conventional cooktop before. And you can pretty much wipe it down right after. For sauces,etc i put paper towels under the pan then just toss them. Can do that with bacon too, cover the whole top. Just can't say high temp like that you can get the paper towels to brown.

Yeah cost here is the slide in, normal range much less. Surprised this is so expensive though, i think we paid around 1400 for the samsung and that was sorta when these things were getting new i thought, but it was during christmas around 3 years ago, i recall the Frigidaire being few hundred cheaper like 1100 or so. Time sure hasn't made the price drop but better deals are always during christimas time.

We just bought this exact model two weeks ago on a Best Buy open box deal. We have been highly impressed by the induction. Coming from a standard electric range, this was a significant improvement. Water boils remarkably fast in a matter of a couple minutes top.

There are a few small cons that some people may or may not be concerned with. The warming drawer at the bottom is surprisingly small and seems like a slight design oversight. Additionally, the front controls are fairly sensitive. This isn't really a con necessarily, but if you lean on the front you can end up triggering the buttons. None of these actually bothered us and the pros really outweighed the cons for us.

We have not tried the "air fry" feature as this actually requires an additional tray you have to purchase separately.

$1700 would seem fairly steep for this, but at 1129 I would say I personally highly recommend this range.

The air fry on this thing sucks. Uneven cooking - undercooked and burnt in the same batch. Just absolutely terrible, called support and they told me there was no fix outside of positioning to hotspot like a crappy grill. Not overpaying for this crap again.

We have the GE Profile Induction - the older model that's much nicer than the current one. I'll never go back to Gas or Radiant. Kids love it, because Top Ramen is a very quick affair. Hot Cereal is a breeze. The GE version we bought was quite a bit more expensive back in the day. However, it is a top-of-the-line oven - has the probe, the good door with thick glass, convection, hidden burners, temperature, cook time, warming (proofing) drawer. So there's some of that to be considered - it isn't a low-grade appliance. This Frigidaire is a fantastic price to get into 240v Induction - I don't know what quality level it is but a big discount on a slide-in that's induction to boot isn't something to sneeze at.

Consider the glass top - after years and years, it looks almost the same. If one uses parchment paper as we tried, to guard the cooktop from the heavy pans, it will look like new. It eventually gathers up fine scratches - my cooktop suffers from knife marks from cutting cheese (oops), a practice we have discontinued. Nothing burns on, any stubborn sugar spills are not baked on as with a radiant glass cooktop. There's no heat wash, as someone else observed. In the fall, I often make applesauce and when boiling the big canning pot, the kitchen doesn't turn into a sweaty hell as with radiant or gas.

So, one day I'm like playing with the top - boiling some water for mac & cheese (Kraft) and marveling how one can just switch burners and continue without having to wait for a re-heat. The stove computer sees that the pan is absent from the original burner and begins to time-out a shutdown. I figure since I'm not using the burner anymore, I'll drop the cheese packet in that spot. Immediately, I hear a zzzzzziiiiiiiipp along with a flash and some smoke as the packet is detected ... I discovered LOL it IS possible to start a fire with an induction stove! It's virtually impossible to start a fire otherwise - no more lighting your ciggies on the element.

Cast Iron is the best stuff to use, and quality stainless pots/pans are recommended. My favorite brand for pans happens to be the high-end Scanpan CTX type. We have all-clad and it's actually the worst performing for induction - not bad, but not optimized like some of the European brands.

Electric is generally just slower and harder to control well. If your stove choice puts a meaningful dent in your energy budget, either you're cooking 24/7 or I envy your mild climate. HVAC is over 80% of our energy usage, so gas vs electric is not an economic choice.

Do you have a link to an example set? I have only found the Anolon Nouvelle [amazon.com] and Cuisinart [amazon.com] non-stick for skillets that are non-stick and induction compatible, but both of these are way more than 75 for a set. There is a cheap pan from Best Buy (Bella?) with the copper color of nonstick, but it is not very non-stick and the bottom is thin and not flat, so it doesn't work well.

If you don't need air fry this is $897 from homedepot which isn't an awful price difference over standard flat top...

Yes...the speed to boil and the ability to quickly control the heat is awesome. No hot surface is great for kids that like to cook..
