Are the Flat Tops Compatible With Induction Stoves?

No, unfortunately the way induction stoves work prevent the Flat Top in its current design from working properly. The Flat Top is made from ferrous (magnetic) steel so they're made from the right material to work with induction stoves. However, our Spacer Kit for glass cooktops raises the Flat Top off the surface of the glass 1/2" to allow for an air gap for circulation to prevent overheating the electronics in the stove. Most induction stoves require the metal to be in direct contact with the glass to be detected by the stove to turn the burners on. Because of the 1/2" gap the stove doesn't know to turn on to heat the Flat Top properly.
