You know you have induction when...

...you turn off the stove when you've just started a pot of pasta water to go to the bathroom because it might boil over before you get back.

...you set a pan on the heat to season and totally forget it, but your pan is fine because the cooktop got tired of waiting for you and turned itself off.

...you get nervous about leaving the potholder next to the pot because it might get dripped on, not because it might catch fire.

NO! Don't even think about it. LOL

You pour some water in a pan.
You set the hob to on, but at the lowest setting.
You leave it there for 4 hours.
Then you remove the pan, and immediately drinks the
water , "Straight from the pan"! (Carefull not to spill any).

You guys are killing me. It takes me 15 minutes every night to clean my range.
But hey, when a birthday candle needs lighting.....

No matter how long you roast your chiles they still won't peel.

You have mastered the technique of "Flambe of the Mind."

Your old "Visions" cookware dies of loneliness.

Your Mother in law calls you at the theater to announce that the burners on your stove won't get hot.

...you have a portable propane grill strictly for grilling chilis.

... you use a Bic for Flambe's.

... you gave your mom all the ceramic cookware.

... your MIL says "I'll let you cook since you seem to enjoy it more than me."

I am laughing so hard.
Guilty as charged
-Magnants in pockets (gave up purses years ago!)
-My SIL is excited about getting an all clad griddle (yup it is aluminum)
-The rest of my calphalon is in storage for our "cabin" of the future - but will probably give them away to my niece or SIL
-Demonstrating water boiling through a pot-holder
-Demonstrating the safety to the Occupational therapists at the hospital for assessing patients executive function without having to stop the patient before they burn up the hospital.

But I don't turn off the cooktop when I go to the bathroom - just put it on 180 degrees!

All of this - and I only have a side burner - my cooktop should be installed within 3 weeks - anyone need calpholon

Also still looking for a griddle for induction. Found one which uses aluminum and steel and had good reviews.

312 cooktops 76 ranges available in the UK. A wealth of choices at reasonable prices. We are quite behind in all areas. The $1k 30" AEG HK884400XG is zoneless and now includes a display.

you don't hesitate to make latkes because it will take two minutes to clean up, no matter how messy and splattery. Messy cooking has no affect on your happiness.

you realize that charring can be done in either of your two broilers or on your back porch Weber. It is so not a big or often, deal. How often do you char, really?

...you say, yes, of course I'm putting the glass bowl down on the cooktop--it's not on the hot part.

(I did broil some peppers today, for the soup, and they did get charred, though not as thoroughly as on a flame. As Westsider said, that's what the rest of the appliances are for...)

You attract swarms of horny bumblebees every time you make an omelet.

You have to call in scientists from CERN to analyze your "boil patterns."

Your Gramma's old cast-iron griddle shrieks in horror on pancake day.

You honestly know what Sil-Pat is.

And, to be fair:

You have the most efficient, most responsive and temperature-steady means of cooking known to human-kind short of psychic barbecue which is not widely available.

the air conditioner breaks, temp's in the 80's, and you're having guests for dinner, but you can still cook because it won't heat up the kitchen.

a2gemini - Let us know how that griddle does. I need one, too.

You find its faster to heat up some water for tea on the cooktop rather than the microwave.

You can ditch the double boiler set up.

You can ditch the separate steamer appliance.

Bye-bye rice cooker.

So long crepe maker!

Thinking of ditching the coffee pot for a stove-top percolator. Or kettle & French press.

When the delivery guys think you're crazy for instsitng on boiling a little water in a tea kettle to test each burner because "trust us, just turn it on and it will get red and hot"...

...then they look at you in awe like you're a magician when you casually put your hand on the unused part of the hub the kettle is whistling on. And they stare in amazement at their own hand after touching the cool part of the burner in use.

Wish I had it on tape! Granted induction is rare in my area, but you would have thought I showed them how to time travel or something.
