Induction Stovetops / Hotplates

Induction stovetops/hotplates, has anyone tried using one in their galley? As most of you may have guessed I like to try new things given the efficiency of induction in cooking I naturally want to try and pair it with sailing. Anybody have any experience with it?

It's faster horses, younger women, older whiskey, and more money!

have a look at S Dashews site
he has been using one on his current boat and is fitting them to his limited production run. Note he does have a very big bank of batteries and lots of inverter power

If weight is a consideration, note that an induction hot plate weighs about 4 times more than an ordinary electric hot plate. Can't beat induction for quick, hot wok cooking or searing steaks. I carry one electric burner for use when plugged in (o more than 50% of the time tops) , so weight of induction cooker and ferrous cookware is a deal breaker when traveling lite.
