According to Consumer Reports, "Induction cooktops heat 25-50 percent faster and distribute heat more evenly than radiant stovetops, and they offer quick, precise temperature adjustment."
Induction cooktops are safer since they only heat the pan, not the burner, and cool quickly after the pan has been removed. In addition, a burner turned on but without a pan will not heat, lessening chances of burns, especially for children.
Induction cooktops heat more quickly than electric, and temperatures are more precise and responsive than they are with electric burners.
Induction cooktops are easier to clean. Since the burner is heating the pan and not the surface, spills don't get baked on the way they do with electric ranges, and the surface can be wiped clean almost immediately after the pan is removed.
Induction emits less heat than electric cooktops since it works by heating the pan, not the burner, which makes for a cooler kitchen and a more comfortable cooking experience.
