Induction cooktops use innovative technology to deliver fast and impressive cooking results. Our expert testers give every model a thorough workout to find out which cooktops:

  • are best at low-heat, turn-down and high-heat cooking
  • are the fastest at boiling water
  • have automatic heat-up functionality
  • are the easiest to use.
 

We list good and bad points for each model, and include installation dimensions so you can get the perfect fit.

We've also partnered with Shop Ethical on this update to show the ratings the Ethical Consumer Group gives to each company.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
