Hello. I searched but couldn't find many pictures. Apologies if this has been beat to death and I manged to miss it. I am in the very early stages of building a new home and have been gathering information. I'm very interested in induction but do love my gas cooktop. I'm not a facny or adventurous cook (although sometimes I give it a try and it turns out OK) but do would like to be at some point!

Does anyone have either the Bertazzoni PM363IOX induction/gas cooktop or the Gaggenau Modular? If so, could you share some pictures please? I've found some online but they all seem to be dealer shots.

About the only things I can't do on an induction that could be done on gas is roast peppers and tilt the pan to pick up flames for flambe. Otherwise, induction is superior to gas IMO as I can get the heat lower and higher than I could with gas yet have as much immediate control as I had with gas, and at more energy efficiency.

Wolf also has gas and induction modules

RE: Induction Gas Combination Cooktop

We have at least one gas burners aficionado and at least one forward thinking induction interested cook in our house. We loose electricity at the drop of a summer or winter windy snow storm, often without it for many long days. Hence can't give up gas.

This combo cooktop or modules sounds like a viable option. I've reviewed Wolf's modules, but don't like how they sit separately in your counter top. I can't imagine the fabricator's job if I understand their placements.

Does any one have either the Wolf, Berta or Gagg modules/cooktop and willing to weigh in? If you do, are you pleased and would you buy them again? Pictures are welcomed. Thanks so much.

Sparklingwater - I have a 15" Wolf induction and a 30" Thermador gas cooktop installed side by side. It really wasn't a problem for the fabricators. If you are interested in a photo of this particular configuration (not exactly what you are considering) I will post one. I don't mind how they look, but my decision to install both was a practical one. I really like the Wolf induction so far - but it's only been installed for a couple of weeks.
