Based on my experience, yes.

Only downside is you can only use some pans, magnetic ones.

The pans can be exspensive they have to have a magnetic "biscuit" within the base the only way you can tell is if it says suitable for induction on the packing . The real advantage of induction is only the pan itself gets hot so when the pan is removed the hob cools very quickly which is a lot safer for obvious reasons . The downside is when they go wrong they can cost typically £300-£450 to repair them as most of the time a circuit board is involved so you may want to exstend the warranty .
