Default Induction cook tops

I am toying with the idea of changing out my 2 burner ceramic cook top and replacing it with a newer induction style cook top, Has anyone done this before?

I have the 3500 SCR and find that when cooking on the water you are limited with the ceramic cook top, with induction your pan or pot only needs to touch the edge or some of the element area to get even heat across the full pan, with feeding the bunch I would prefer to go induction, I know i could just BBQ out the back but I enjoy also cooking up a storm in the galley and have found the ceramic cook top a pain.

To add to the situation I need to be searching in the USA for the supplier as we operate on 240 Volts here in Australia and no one is willing to order in one cooktop @ 110-120V, I have kept all the boat running on 110 and intend on keeping it that way.

Always love your input so just putting it out there.

Cheers

SP any chance when your down on your boat next you could get me a make/model number, I have been searching the net with little luck, marine suppliers seem not to advertise the induction tops might be easier chasing down your model then working backwards

I have an induction cook top at home. You will love it for cooking, energy usage, and safety.

PN is 1759314 US Marine part number

that is the part that is used on all newer boats coming out of the factory......

if you can't get it out there...maybe...lake union searay can get it drop shipped too you..

contact Jim Garrity at (US) 425-885-2628
I don't have the 1-800 number but your local dealer should be able to just order it..

Yeah was expecting something like that considering the only things I could find on the net were about that price and they did not look close to fitting or capable of the job (oddly enough most of them stated you could not run the 2 burners at full power as they power shared?), as always I will pay nearly as much for shipping as I do for the product, but no point complaining.......no one listens, forgot to ask but took it for granted yours is a 2 burner?
