Samsung induction range: floor model?
I happened to come upon a floor model for the discontinued Samsung FTQ307NWGX induction range -- it is at a screaming discount (less than $700) so of course I am very very tempted -- but reviews online are mixed; lots of 1 star reviews on Amazon etc. The reviews on the Samsung site are fine of course, but elsewhere people talk about reliability problems with this particular model. That and pans not fitting on the somewhat weird burner arrangement, and loud fan noise.
Opinions? I am cooking on electric coil (always have) and have had induction in the back of my mind for a while... but I don't technically NEED a new stove as mine works for what I do. The question is not whether induction is good, but whether this particular induction stove is a wise purchase given the caveats. I am frugal -- doesn't mean I can't spend money (well, usually it does, lol) but I'd rather spend it once on something that will last even if it costs a bit more.
Still... under $700 for an induction range... hard to pass up... ? Plus a few new pots and a hood to replace my white one, of course.
(My favorite cast iron pan is the right size to fit on that strangely huge front burner, by the way...)
