    Hi all!

    After reading a few older posts here, I too, have the same issue of a replacement 30" range for the home.
    Electric coil top now (5 year old GE junk).
    Gas is not an option unless we get a pac-man labyrinth of gas pipe on the outside of the house (slab floor).
    The lower(?) end induction units - LG, Samsung, etc. do not have favorable reviews, nor do I care for the layout/operation.
    Looking for something with front knobs,..preferably not with touch screens on the top/plastic surface.

    The Wolf seems to be more of a designer "look at me" unit..with touch controls on the glass-top surface - no thanks.

    The Bertazzoni requires ~50A+ wiring (58A max draw)! Hullo?

    Fisher Paykel does not have favorable reviews.

    Kind of drooling over the Fulgor F6PIR304S1, but there are very few reviews out there.

    Was wondering if anyone has any personal opinions/thoughts on the Fulgor, or any other similar ranges that might be available in Canada?
    Most of my cookware is already induction compatible, BTW.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Electrolux makes the best induction for home in my opinion.

    Went ahead & bought the Fulgor today.
    Delivery is early March (vacation/ordering/timing issues).
    Will post any pros/cons when it arrives...no holds barred.
