I based the 40 amp requirement on the fact that my Bosch induction range in the US requires it. It's a four-burner range and I love it. And yes, I had to buy another set of All-Clad cookware because my first set was not magnetic. tkessler: Can you ship a range in from Ecuador brand new? It is my understanding that, at least from the US, you have to be able to show that you have owned major appliances for six months.
We currently have a propane range in our kitchen. It's a bar-bones range... no broiler, doesn't get very hot. I am considering replacing it with an Bosch induction range like the one we have in the states. Does anyone have experience with using electricity to cook with? Is it much more expensive than using propane? It would be a project because we would have to have a 40 amp 220 v circuit put in behind the range.
