If you fancy yourself a home chef, you owe it to yourself to consider the benefits of an induction range. They cost a little more than comparable gas or electric ranges, but these cutting-edge machines offer faster boiling times, pinpoint temperature control, and incredible efficiency.
Induction has been slow to catch on below the border in the U.S., much to the chagrin of appliance makers. However, the cooking technology has been steadily gaining traction in Canadian kitchens. Since it's the newest technology for full-size ovens, induction cooking is awash in questions, fears, and misinformation. That's a real shame because induction is awesome—something professional chefs have known for years.
We've written about the topic a lot, but our Induction 101 guide is a great place to get started with basic questions. If you already know all there is to know about induction cooking but still have questions about which pots and pans work best, check out our recommendations for the best induction compatible cookware sets available in Canada.
If you're past the basics and just want to buy, these are the best induction ranges available in Canada.
1. Frigidaire Gallery CGIH3047VF
If you’ve been meaning to make the jump into induction cooking but have been too scared to take the plunge, the Frigidaire Gallery CGIH3047VF might be right for you. The simple, sleek range has auto-adjusting burners and a straightforward layout to help reduce the induction learning curve, and the quick-boiling burners can cut down on total cook times. With the added bonuses of an Air Fry mode, true convection, and steam cleaning, this is a feature-loaded range at a great price.
In our testing, the CGIH3047VF roasted a 2-pound piece of pork without losing its juice, made a cooked-through pizza with a crisp crust, and brought six cups of water to boil in just over four minutes thanks to its sleek and speedy induction cooktop.

2. GE Profile PHS930SLSS
Featuring a sleek slide-in design, true convection oven, and Glide Control touchscreen, this luxurious-looking GE Profile PHS930SLSS outperformed most of the induction ranges we’ve tested.
In testing, the PHS930SLSS baked batches of evenly browned cookies and was able to preheat the oven noticeably faster than the other units we’ve tested.
There are no knobs on the cooktop; you can give commands either by sliding the Glide Control touchscreen or by monitoring the cooking process from your phone.
In addition, the two left burners can be linked for synchronized cooking at the swipe of your fingertips, making it possible to fit a large griddle.

3. KitchenAid KFID500ESS
The KitchenAid KFID500ESS is a solid dual fuel range with a high-performance induction cooktop and electric double ovens. Its induction cooktop can boil quickly across all four burners and our testers love how easy this cooktop is to clean.
The combined 6.7 cu. ft. capacity of both ovens is significantly larger than the standard 5 cu. ft. of many ovens and will allow you to prepare multiple dishes cooked at different temperatures simultaneously. However, you'll need to do a little troubleshooting to get used to these ovens, particularly when it comes to convection bake.

4. LG LSE4617ST
If you’re looking for a technology-forward induction range, LG doesn’t disappoint. With the LG ThinQ app, you can check the oven timer, preheat the oven, and even turn it off without having to get up off the couch.
While it did boast excellent burner performance – boiling water as quickly as some of the best induction ranges we tested – the oven struggled to match up. Despite its ProBake Convection technology, the oven underperformed in both baking and roasting tests. Couple that with a high price tag and a touchpad that you have to push so hard it actually hurt our fingers, we’re going to give this one a pass.
