Some girls might prefer diamonds but when you get given an induction cooker for your birthday it can be a pretty good alternative.
Linda and I have been using our induction cooker since August and we are very impressed.
Smooth glass top, no knobs, touch sensitive heating controls, fast reaction to changes in heating/cooling.
We find our cooking to be faster and cleaning much easier. Pots and pans seem easier to clean and the cook top itself is very easy to keep clean.
We did have to go and buy new pots and pans but that seems a worthwhile expense with such good results.
Linda cooked a Quick and Easy Sausage Carbonara in these pictures.
