36" radiant heat cooktop

Posted by sunnybunch (My Page) on

I was looking at the GE 36" cooktop which looks good with higher watts on the burners and choices of 3 sizes on largest burner at 3000 watts and 2 other burners you can choose the size. But I really wanted the bridge burner for a longer pan but the new GE profile doesn't offer the bridge. Any one use another brand or model with a bridge but also the real large burner you can choose 6/9/12" pan

Radiant is last century's tecnology. Go induction.

RE: 36" radiant heat cooktop

Yep, go Induction, Look at the new Bosch, with the "Flexinduction", (really just "bridged hobs"), but you should be able to use some Gigantic cooking vessels on the bridged hobs.

I have the Electrolux Icon Induction cook top, and it's biggest hob, (11 inches I think), has no problem supporting the biggest cooking vessel that I own! Now maybe if I sat my bathtub on that hob, that big Hob might struggle a bit?

I had probably the fanciest radiant cooktop ever made, Caldera, Huge burners, bridged, had real timers etc etc.
The Induction cooktop blew that succer into the weeds.
Faster, more control, and best of all, cleaning, ( a "non event"), with induction, a REAL PITA with the old cooktop and never could keep it looking good, and stuff would get onto the control area, and finally "totaled that succer" in less than 2 years!
