One other thought regarding induction vs gas is the noise level. I've only had experience with portable induction cooktops, so a built-in induction may be significantly quieter. There is always an induction fan that can be quite noticeable with a portable, and presumably less so with a built-in. This fan noise is in addition to the hood ventilation fan you turn on when cooking. The other noise is that most induction controls are buttons that beep whenever you change power levels or modes. The loudness of the beeps are kinda annoying. I chose the more expensive Viking induction because it had no buttons, rather it had a conventional turning knob that was easy, intuitive, and made no beeping noises. So if you like your cooking to be peaceful and meditative, look for induction cooktops that have lower noise levels.
