Induction: Good or Bad Idea for the Elderly?

7 years ago
last modified: 7 years ago

My 79 year old mom is going to purchase a new 30" stove. She really wants a smooth glass top electric stove which she has cooked on in the past. She likes it, and I'm researching them as well if you have any suggestion for them.

I know pretty much nothing about induction except for the little reading I've been doing tonight.

The thought of her not burning herself, ease of cleaning, perhaps automatic shutoff in case she leaves a burner on....are appealing to me.

Any advice or experience with induction (or electric smooth top) would be appreciated. Thanks! :)
