Summary Induction cooking has much more responsive burners than electric cooktops and hot plates. The flat glass top cooking area makes for very easy cleaning. The Frigidaire cooktop has 6 heat settings which is OK, but it would be even better with 8 to 10 heat settings. The fan happens to be a bit noisy, but nothing to get upset about. Great for a 5th cooktop in your kitchen, or for your office, your kid's dorm room, at your cabin, or in your RV unit. Cooktop is scratch resistant keeping the unit looking good for a long time to come. Has child resistant features for those of you will children such as a child lock and the shut-off function.
