It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

OT - Induction HOB

My "coil" hot plate gave up the ghost after 20 years or so. Thinking of getting an induction high output burner, like the Max Burton 6200. Anyone have any experience with this unit or the 6000?

My SS clad cookware is induction friendly. Any advice or information is much appreciated. Thanks

  • Skiddy. I have a built in two burner and it is fantastic. Boils pasta water in a few minutes on high and can hold a hollandaise sauce at 85* on low.

  • LS - Thanks I wanted an induction range when SWMBO was looking at ranges, I lost as usual, she got the glass topped piece of furniture. I'm sold on induction, saw some in Europe where energy costs are very high. Figured I might try a counter top unit. 
    What kind of built in do you have? Maybe I'll rearrange my bar counter.

  • It's a Wolf two element. I have a gas range and wouldn't give it up for induction but it sure is nice to have.

    Do you have a Wolf gas range?  We bought a Garland commercial range 25 years ago and looked at the Wolf but they were out of our price range.

  • Yes, I have the 48". My Dad bought one for me for my fiftieth birthday. We had a house fire and it was damaged during moving. That one had the griddle and grill combo. I replaced it with 4 burners and the French top.

    Our Garland has 4 burners and 1/3 size griddle, if we were to do it again I would just go with a 6 burner top.  When we first got it Cherie missed not having a broiler and we thought that we should have opted for a salamander, now we don't really miss the broiler.

    Is it an industrial Garland? I really wanted to go with one but the fire supression stuff made it pricier than the Wolf

    Yes it is.  You don't have to have fire suppression for the range, or at least you didn't in the late '80s, unless you had a deep frier.  There were minimum clearance standards to combustibles that had to be met but other than that it was a straight forward installation.

  • You need a high pressure inert gas system now on industrials. Either Halon or Co2. Pretty much overkill and I don't know the technicalities but I know they require a ton of stuff.

    Have had a Kenmore Induction cooktop for 7 years it is great, Only problem have a huge box of Calphalon down in the garage that I cannot use on it.

  • That is exactly why I would go full induction. That and cooking a stew or sauce over gas in the winter warms the house up better.
