+ Super efficient and rapid, will boil water faster than any other style of cooktop on the market
+ Cooktop only receives residual heat from the pan, so burns on induction hotplates are very rare
+ Easy to clean, spills won't bake on
+ Vast range of size and style options available
– Pots must be magnetic (if in doubt, put a fridge magnet on the back of the pan, if it sticks the pan will work with induction)
– Can be expensive
– Even though induction cooktops are the most energy efficient variety available, they often need a higher voltage. This can lead to unexpected installation costs.
– If your pan is not completely flat, it may get "hot spots"
