Induction cooktops require more power. If you have a 30" cooktop presently, you more than likely have a 30 amp breaker. Most 30" induction cooktops will require a 40 amp service. You will more than likely need an electrician to make this work. If you need to boil more than one vessel at a time, make sure to find out about power sharing on induction cooktops. Some cooktops will only be able to produce a boil on one burner while others are being used. This can be problem for large families or for those who hire caterers to cook for dinner parties, etc. Having said this, there are models available that you are able to boil more than one pot at a time. Make sure you know those models that can.

This means that the cooktops utilize magnetic reactions to create heat that enables you to do your cooking. Unlike electric cooktops that heat cooking zones before transferring the heat to your pot, the induction ones create heat with the pot making the cooking fast, energy efficient and safe too. These cooktops are available in a wide range of designs, sizes and features and to get the best you would need to make proper determinations. But even before you make your purchase, there are important things you should know about the cooktops so you are able to decide whether they are worth the purchase or not.
