    ….I like to cook as a form of showing off, and I do not. Size priority, then ease of access.

      Cooking is totally my thing. Same here, I put the things where they fit and where the power is according to my sense of urgency. – Do you also have the feeling that nothing takes longer than bringing a tiny pot of a mere five litres to boil? For that I could always need a larger (more powerful) cooktop.

        Induction does it soooo much faster than the older stoves you usually find in houses. That was the main driving force to upgrade it lol

        The one I have even has a power boil setting…

        • BearnieZardoz

          Yes mine too. And each time, I look at the “P” and think, “I wish there’d be a “P2” above it

          😀

        Yeah, but the thermal value of water is remarkably high. On occasion if I’m in a hurry, I’ll start half the pot on the stove, and the other half in my electric kettle, but that’s super rare. I don’t even remember when last I did it.

          You don’t know me!
          Besides, I’m the one who cooks. :3

    I used to when we had the old stove (the more used element heated better and was the right size). Now we have an induction stove and it’s whichever I feel like or whatever setup is needed lol

    • BearnieZardoz

      Induction is the shit! Why someone would use something else is beyond me.

      • m4a4

        I hear a good professional fire stove is good. But I’m no master chef, and I’m pretty sure they’re quite expensive.

        Besides having to worry about what metal to use on it, it’s more than enough though.

        • BearnieZardoz

          These days alsmost every pot or pan I look up says “induction ready”. It’s not that much of a hassle. Has been one 15 years ago.

          • m4a4

            I have a whole set of pots and pans that aren’t, and a few of my more favorite (older) ones aren’t either. Which, we also got a stainless steel pad in case we need to warm something like that.

            It can be easy to find cheaper (but good) cookware that isn’t the right metal. But it is nice that most are ready.

          • BearnieZardoz

            25 years ago, I lived in an area of a large city where gas was standard in the houses. Never had that before. And I can only say, that each evening, when I came home from work, and turned around the last corner, I was SO RELIEVED to see the house still standing.

        Momentum. Also, it does require specific cookware too, so for most casual home chefs, it’s a double expense.

        Also, I have yet to cook on one because I’m a renter and don’t have a choice in what type of stove I get.
