Straddling induction hobs...
I'm hesitating which induction cooktop to get. I had originally planned on a 30" induction and a 2-burner gas top with a gap between them, but now I'm thinking a 36" induction alone might be enough. My concern is mainly placement of large pots at this point.
Can you straddle two of the smaller burners with a 12" (bottom measurement) pot?
I'm looking at the Bosch 800 and the Gaggenau with the knob. Can someone here who has one of these (or similar) tell me how straddling works in reality?
I'd use the main large hub for anything that needs real power and the straddled hobs for simmering. Also, can a 12" pan fit on the large hob at the same time as a 12" pot is straddling two small burners?
My other question has to do with interface disks. Do they actually work? I'd love to use my (non-magnetic) scanpan pans for eggs at medium heat. No matter how well I season my Debuyer iron pans, they are never quite as good as scanpan for pancakes and eggs. They are great for high heat searing, though.
