    Of course, back in the day the kitchen was a whole separate building, because who wants any of that mess/fire hazard inside your actual house? I say we go back to building outbuilding kitchens.

    I am so glad that you changed your mind about the white- I live in France where I have seen the white induction cooktops turn disgusting yellow/beige, and while I didn’t think a comment would change your mind, I couldn’t imagine how you would be able to live with that. I have a regular induction cooker but I love the look of a big gas La Cornue and spent a difficult few weeks trying to decide if it was worth the $$$ to buy the La Cornue with induction cooktop. FInally, decided against it but I was sad to say good bye to perfection and settle. My husband and bank account were happier

    My solution for induction was to keep them as hobs. I had room for an 80″ cooktop. I had it built 4″ lower than normal to make up for the height of the hobs. I designed the countertop to be in stainless with 3 coved side backsplash. Clean up is a piece of cake. Under the cooktop are four rows of drawers with four drawer deep. The drawers keep some cookware, dinnerware so I can plate at the cooktop and staples such as onions and potatoes. The drawers have cutouts, no hardware. Again no crevices for gunk to build up. Unconventional I know, but at almost 69, I could give a fiddly fig what other people think. So glad my house doesn’t have that gas smell or my cookware with the fired on crud on them.Do what makes your heart happy and don’t forget to feed Paul.

    As someone who doesn’t care how the food gets in her mouth as long as it does I have no option on cooktops but I would like to ask if you have any good, reliable sources or articles on pets vs essential oils. I’ve been diffusing oils for over a year and my dog/life partner/best friend (oh, also my boyfriend) sleep with me. So I need to know but have found a lot of confusing and contradictory information. Please pass it along! Thanks!

    I hope you opted for the induction countertop sorcery. Waiting patiently, not so much, to see how Amazing it turns out.

    I have had induction for 14 years. Married to an HVAC contractor (41 years) who says absolutely no open flame cooking in an area where we plan to continue to breathe. We are building a new house, with our dream kitchen, and again we are having induction. We were told the only thing that can stay in the glass is boiling over something with sugar in it and not wiping it up right away, and I really embrace that idea so we have no staining. I did chip one because I dropped a vinegar bottle (glass) on the edge. The chip was large, but not large enough to dissuade me from having induction. The ease of cleaning and the fact that it nearly disappears in my kitchen are worth it. Plus after this many years I know how to cook with it and I am content.
