As a matter of fact even different stainless steel pots will heat up differently depending on how much steel is actually in the metal (i.e., stay away from cheap Chinese pots, pans, and skillets)

An 1800w 8" induction cooktop will boil 12oz of water in a 10" skillet in 2 min 12 sec using Nuwave skillet, but takes over 3 minutes in a cheap Chinese stainless skillet of the same size. Some of my older pots have triple thickness on the bottom that I thought would cook faster but the don't. Yet, they do heat more evenly.

My experiments with the induction cooktop now has me thinking about pots and pans the same way I do about wine glasses (I have 8 sets for the primary 8 different types of wines: width, depth, curvature, and thickness all make a difference in the experience).

Hey gizmoq, read the whole thread, the details are in there somewhere. If I could remember, I'd just tell ya, but I can't. Pretty slick, eh?

There were links to a few portable induction cooktop models there, but they don't look the same as what's pictured here. I think she has tried to pull a fast one on us!

Makes sense.

It works via electromagnetic fields. If it's not magnetic, it doesn't heat up.

Good to know you tested this!

And again, this is simply amazing!

I really like your conversion

do you have any pictures that show the entire interior?

What is the interior height of your bus?

Thanks

The texture coating on all the cabinets is duratex waterproof industrial speaker coating. This stuff is strong! It's what is put on touring speaker cabinets and line arrays. It's basically almost creates a plastic acrylic orange peel layer.
