Do you have an induction cooktop? Which One? Do you like it?

We're trying to decide whether to put a 30 inch induction cooktop in the island of our new house. Our alternative is an electric smoothtop.

I have used two brands so far (Siemens and Zug) based in Switzerland - delighted with both.

Induction yes. Island cooktop. NO. They are usually done without enough room to be safe, or to have adequate room for prep next to them. Jennaire downdrafts are a 70's holdover that doesn't work either.

Agree with Sophie wheeler in principle, but if you have to go with an island cooktop, suggest a) lots of space either side or b) offset the cooktop to ensure at least one side can hold a number of pots and pans

Thanks--sounds like good ideas. Regarding the downdraft, what has been suggested is a pop-up (retractable) downdraft in the island. Any thoughts on that type of downdraft?
