40% less than gas, AFAIR. Replaced a 4 ring gas unit with the ikea induction yesterday for a friend.
The "booster" feature - suppose you wanted to get water to a boiling point quickly, then level off, well the booster would be used in this instance.
For anyone looking at this unit, there are 2 on display in ikea. One is €375 and it's neighbour is €275. The specs are almost identical; small boost increase on 2 zones and a 1cm diameter difference is all I could see for the €100 extra. A bit of a no-brainer really. The guy I fitted it for had done quite a bit of research on price and spec comparisons and was confident that the one purchased was really well priced.
