I hate to join the divergent conversation about cauldrons, but I have to throw in that if you consider the cost of heating a gallon of water gas is still cheaper than induction.

That said gas is not available in my neighborhood, so we have induction which is far superior to electric coils to cook on. I still prefer gas.
