Spreading the word about induction
Let me preface this by saying we did not upgrade our appliances to impress anyone; our old appliances were outdated, mismatched and beginning to fall apart. Since we plan to remain in our current home for a long time, we splurged and bought what most would consider very nice stainless appliances: a Viking French door refrigerator, Thermador convection oven/microwave/warming drawer combo, and Thermador mirror finish induction cooktop. We had our first dinner party last evening and although I did not point out our new appliances, we received several comments about them. Three people asked about our decision to "go with electric" regarding our cooktop. I tried to explain that induction is the latest technology, and some of its benefits, but I could tell that people were thinking we'd picked up a basic electric cooktop. They had no idea that induction is not equivalent to radiant electric. And no one seemed to have heard of Thermador. Perhaps our friends are not "foodies?" haa. Does anybody else encounter people who see their induction cooktops/ranges and think "Oh, you did electric? hmmm." If so, is there a simple way to explain it?
