    I am.

    And when I was in the UK they kept trying to give me those nasty mushy peas and I had no part of it.

    I used a glass stovetop one time and I cracked the stupid thing. $300 later and a 4 hour roundtrip to my buddies parents cabin to fix it. No thanks.

    I vaguely remember that story, but don't recall how you broke it?  Wasn't it a hot pan on a cold surface or cold on hot?

    Yeah, it was a cold pot of smoked chili. It somehow bonded itself onto the stove top and cracked it.

    I heard you cannot even boil water on an induction oven.
    A friend of mine has one that came with the house he bought. Before I bought my BlueStar range, he tried hard to talk me into getting an induction stove. According to him, it boils water very very fast. For me, the deciding factor was that they all have a smooth glass top. It happens that I hate glass tops. Right now I'm very happy with the gas BlueStar stove... and neither his liking for the induction range or mine for my gas one are politically based.
    Neither is my strong dislike for glass top stoves.

    Doesn't have to be glass. Glass is common probably due to cost but it's not required.

    Kenji had released a chili con carne video.  After he said his ending spiel, he came back and said he put beans in his chili.

    Also, all the names were plays on Kenji's name, except Susan.  That one went whoosh right by me.
    I just try to keep in mind that @saluki2007 doesn't tell jokes that are funny, and that helps.

    Sorry you wasted so much time. There really isn’t a joke here. I was just being an azz. You guys were playing games based on the name and I just went with a basic white girl name. (An editable may have been a factor in my logic).

    If they had an induction cook-top that resembled a steel French top I'd be all over it, but I don't know if that's possible. For you Engineers out there - Is the glass top necessary for the induction technology to work?  For me, the glass is a deal breaker.

    A metal top would be a shield, essentially encapsulating the induction coils in a Faraday cage.  It would not work.  Based on my knowledge at least, I have been known to be wrong before.   Maybe transparent aluminum?

    Like they top some laminate flooring with?

    They should go wall to wall coils, put nine in where they would normally have four or five.  Let me move pans around like on a flattop.  Have a hot region and a warm region (but also let me just turn one on if I want).

    Induction cooktop turns your pan into the "burner".  I wonder if you could make a metal top that gets hot and then that warms your pans?  The french cooktop would essentially be a heating element heated via induction?

    Yeah.  I thought induction heating used magnetic waves to excite the metal in the pan, that's why pans of non-magnetic materials won't heat/can't be used.  
    Does a Faraday cage block magnetic waves?  Maybe only if the cage is built of magnetic materials?  :confused:

    That’s been done by putting a plate over the induction coils to use non conductive pots, but it negates some of the efficiency you get directly heating the pan or pot.  

    A little research on magnetic fields and faraday cages tells me you can get eddy current in the metal which can block or attenuate the coupling of alternating magnetic fields.  Varies based on the frequency and material.  Since glass is effectively invisible to the magnetic field, no one uses metal between the induction coils and the pots.  And you can make glass look like granite, metal, whatever so there’s really no point.

    They provide less attenuation of outgoing transmissions than incoming: they can block electromagnetic pulse (EMP) waves from natural phenomena very effectively, but a tracking device, especially in upper frequencies, may be able to penetrate from within the cage (e.g., some cell phones operate at various radio ...

    Had a friend with had sweet woodfired stoves in his ranch houses.  They were amazing.  Get them glowing red and even on icey nights they would cook you right out of the cabin.  I guarantee you could boil water.  Could instantly sear flesh to the sides too.
