We spent the last month looking at every single gas/dual fuel and induction combination in 36" on the planet.

Finally settled on an Aga Elise and this is going to be my wife's pride and joy so I wanted her to be 100% happy with it. It's got a single massive oven but we couldn't justify a 48". It would have overwhelmed our kitchen space

Our kitchen is gone at the moment down to the subfloor and it will be a few more weeks before we will start to rebuild so I'm using my imagination right now as to how it's going to cook.

I was completely sure we were going gas. Really surprised how much she loved the induction after playing with a few.

As long as she is happy with it, and you're okay with her decision, that is all that matters.

Personally, I am a fan of natural gas and don't see myself ever changing from it.

I’ve had mine for a few years now and enjoy it. The temperature control is very good. I’d prefer gas, but we didn’t want to run a gas line.

Is there a new cookware set in your future too? Or is most of your stuff compatible?

Your post also reads like the switch to induction was primarily your wife’s. Do you not cook and completely turned over the decision to her?

My wife designed our remodel, though I pushed for a lot of the placement decisions and all of the appliance decisions. The much larger kitchen area is our favorite room in the house and I love cooking in it.

New highlights:
*switch to induction
*walk in pantry with an extra stand-up fridge/freezer
*regular fridge now next to the pantry
*slide out spice rack next to oven in easy reach to cooktop island
*an oven with French doors
*built in convection/microwave unit
*LED lighting in the ceiling
*Floor to ceiling cabinetry with LED lit display cabinets at the top
*new seating area to give us an open concept without blending the kitchen and den

I’m rock hard just typing that.

Looks awesome.

And I'm not trying to shite on your remodel , but our old house had this and it was such a hassle to me.

What made it a hassle?

We’ve had it for 5 years now and have had only a great experience with it.

well she's a chef and has a food truck and been on food Network so, yes I defer to her

And yes it's our dream kitchen with lots of stuff like you mentioned.

Right now we're down to the joists.

It's definitely worth it to have switches, outlets, storage, etc. set the way you want it, given the amount of time spent in the kitchen.
We went with induction and it's been great. One thing I found is to center the cookware over the bullseye markings on the stove surface and the heat distributes evenly.

Honestly I'm so glad we did this. House was built in 1978 and by ripping everything out we found lots of surprises so it's great to build back with a blank slate.
