I have an induction plate I use right next to my stove. I use it every day, and absolutely love it. I have an electric stove, so I can cook things much more quickly on the induction plate. Mine is a Circulon brand. There's a slight learning curve with it, but once you figure it out it's great. I'm even thinking about getting an induction range. (you do need stainless cookware, but you can buy an adapter (cheap) that will allow you to use other cookware).
"I'm an old cowhand-from the Rio Grande-I know every trail in the Lone Star State cause I ride the range in a Ford V-8, yippee-i-o-ki-ay!"
