Yes, the single burner induction hobs put more heat into the pan than the home gas stoves do. The key is efficiency. Gas stoves have more total BTUs than the wall unit induction. But the induction hobs surpass the gas via efficiency. Gas stoves are about 33% efficient, induction about 85%. 1800 W induction is 6141 BTU, home gas stoves 13000 BTU. But when you look at the heat that goes into the pan, gas is about 4300 BTU and induction about 5200 BTU.
