    We had a Bosch induction and I loved it, we moved and went to gas which I hate! I cannot get the temp right on gas. You've already checked your pans so that's a big tick. Ours didn't have ventilation under it - the oven was underneath. I'd go back to induction in a heartbeat if I could.

    We had an induction cooktop in one of our rentals (can't remember the brand) and we had no dramas.
    Just make sure you do your research.
    Have you checked that the pots/pans they are using are induction suitable because many are not. But I guess you'd know that if you've had one before.

    Yes the pots were induction, but it's just this particular cooktop has it's magnetic spots in a position didn't suit smaller pots. They have since read reviews and it appears to be an issue with this cooktop. The shop they bought it from were not aware of this and when Bosch confirmed this is just how this cooker functions they were happy to exchange it for them. As I said the one I had was great.

    I have an Electrolux induction cooktop and I hate it like really really hate it and if it wasn't for the fact that it cost nearly $1500 I would bin it. Give me a gas cooktop any day or just a plain ceramic cooktop that has dials to turn it on or off.

    Oh so many things.. The touch pad thing is ridiculous, if your finger is a bit wet or greasy from food then you can't turn it on. If your cooking pasta or something in a saucepan of water and the water splashes over a little bit the whole thing turns off. If the pot or pan moves a little bit off centre the whole thing turns off. It's makes a buzzy noise when you turn it on. There are so many more things, it's a total pain in the *** and frustrates me no end nearly every day !!!
