    Skilled professionals like electricians, plumbers and countertop experts are generally involved. Ask for referrals from friends, family, or neighbors.

    Curious if your cookware works with induction cooking? Whether it’s a trusty stainless-steel skillet or a charming cast-iron Dutch oven, it’ll work on an induction cooktop if it has a flat base and some iron. Test it with a magnet – if it sticks, you’re good.

  4. Consider your kitchen’s air flow.

    Induction cooktops keep the air in your kitchen fresh, given that they don’t emit methane like gas stoves. While heavy ventilation isn’t necessary, some airflow is beneficial. Prioritize indoor air quality and consult an appliance expert for tailored ventilation suggestions.
