“We have been using Vollrath induction cooktops in our Fox Valley Technical College bakeshop for some time now and their ease of use, durability, and slim design are all noteworthy. The cooktops hold up to daily use (and abuse) and still maintain accuracy. An additional benefit is their ease of cleaning and sanitizing.”
