Pros: Fast heating, good control, uses small amount of energy and easy cleanup.
Cons: Induction cooking has a learning curve. There is no flame to gauge the heat as in gas/propane cooking and no glow on the rings as in electric cooking. It is a little noisy but bearable. My wife does not like induction cooking because her hard boiled eggs were soft boiled on her first use of the induction cooktop. The H light does not go off, just flashes constantly but the unit is off. This happened after a couple of months but works just fine otherwise.
Other Thoughts: I am a retired Executive Chef and had wanted to try an induction cooktop for many years and never had the opportunity. I purchased this Tatung unit and been very happy with it. You have a lot of control once you learn to use it but be careful! Induction cooking is much quicker than either electric or gas and the base is cool after a few seconds after finishing. The heat is immediately transferred to the pan, (must be ferrous metal... and anodized won't work either even is the metal is ferrous). The settings are 1 thru 9, one being less than a simmer. The heat is transferred by cycles rather than a constant heat, much like high end gas cooktops. I have cooked with just about every method of head out there including combi-therm and induction is probably my next range... that is if I can convince my wife.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cooks fast. Turns off like a gas burner, quickly!
Cons: Noisy and has a small cooking area. Does not heat cooking pots and pans which have a coated bottom, even if they are made of a ferrous material.
Other Thoughts: This induction hot plate will bring a pot of water to a boil really quickly. It makes a rice better than my rice cooker after you learn how to use it. At $49 it's a decent buy.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: It looks as if should work well.
Other Thoughts: Newegg comes through again. Ordered it and 2 days later I received it. Have not had the chance to use it yet but do not anticipate any problems.READ FULL REVIEW
