With induction cooktop it is very easy to keep the surface clean. Had radiant cooktop earlier which got thankfully got recalled, it was a pain to keep glass surface clean. With Bosch induction cooktop, cleaning is a breeze. The features provided are great. It will take a while to learn them as there are too many. The WiFi Homeconnect is good to monitor if cooktop settings remotely. You can send cooking instructions remotely to cooktop, but it has to be confirmed by the person on the cooktop physically. The speedboost option is great, it heats up stuff in seconds. Overall very satisfied with the purchase.
I have had it for a week, I am used to gas, but that is not available where I live now, love the induction, it is as close to gas as we could get. Nice sleek look and works well, not as quick in heating as gas is, but better than regular electric.
This cooktop is amazing, exactly as promised. Best money we have ever spent on this kind of appliance. It heats up fast and cools off just as fast, no risk of kids or cats getting paws burnt by hot stove.
A:Answer Hi YogaMomma. Thank you for your question. Yes the 800 Series Induction Cooktop, model NIT8669UC does require a ventilation system. The Bosch Downdraft Vent that is compatible with that cooktop is model HDD86050UC.
