Best Overall Induction Cooktop
This GE electric cooktop has five induction elements that detect pan presence and size to heat only the necessary area. Two elements sync to heat griddles and other large cookware. The 11-inch 3700-Watt element boils water in a snap.
“I just love my new induction cooktop,” writes one reviewer for The Home Depot web site. “I was worried switching from gas to induction. I am crazy about this cooktop. It cooks evenly, cleans up beautifully, and has a sleek clean look in my new kitchen.”
Best Budget Induction Cooktop
This 30-inch Frigidaire induction cooktop has four elements and an easy-to-clean glass ceramic surface. The induction technology evenly heats your pans for perfectly cooked food. The elements detect pan size and warm just that area.
“Just as fast as gas but extends your counter space as it is never hot when you remove the pan,” writes one Amazon reviewer. “Wipes clean because the surface never is hot enough to burn the spills. Well worth the extra cost!”
Best Overall Induction Range
If your kitchen has a range, the easiest replacement is another electric range. This slide-in LG range comes in traditional stainless steel and the popular new black stainless steel. It features five elements, and the 6.3 cu. ft. oven capacity holds a large roast or Thanksgiving turkey. This smart range works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
According to this Best Buy web site reviewer: “Beautiful stove. Easy to clean and operate. The induction cook top is amazing. The pans heat up very quickly and temperature is easily controlled.”
Best Splurge and Double Oven
For a double oven and induction stove, this Café electric range is the way to go. Its stylish matte white finish stands out in a sea of stainless steel appliances. The cooktop has four elements, and the two ovens offer a combined total capacity of seven cubic feet. The lower oven has convection cooking, and both are self-steam-cleaning.
“In summary, this is absolutely the very best stove I have ever used in my life, bar none,” writes one Best Buy web site reviewer. “Whatever level you are, it’ll make you a better cook. It does everything it promises with flair.”
Best Extra Features
This freestanding Frigidaire induction range has it all: induction stove, self-steam-cleaning, convection cooking and in-oven air frying. Even with all the extra features, it’s not the most expensive option on this list.
“I’ve had this range for over three months and love so many things about it. Great convection oven,” writes one Lowe’s web site reviewer. “But the cooktop is my favorite. We had induction before but this one is even better. Less buzzing noise with same pan. Faster response. Controls are easy to read and simple.”
Best Induction Stove for Small Spaces
This plug and cook induction cooktop is a convenient appliance for small spaces without kitchens, such as dorm rooms and RVs. It has two heating elements, but it’s still small enough to fit where a full-sized induction stove won’t.
If you often host overnight guests and need a little more cooking space for Sunday brunch, this induction stove provides two more pot spots without sacrificing counter space. It stores easily once the dishes are washed and the guests are gone.
Best Portable Induction Stove
At just $90, this is an affordable way to try out induction cooking before committing to a full range. It will get you by during a kitchen remodel, and it’s also a great addition to cabins, dorms, RVs, office break rooms and more.
