electric range/stove/cooctop

Thank you for paying attention to my inquiry.

I found a very good apartment and want to move there, but the owner told me there is no gas stove, and they have only electric range/stove.

I know induction cooctop (IH) affects pacemaker, but my question is, does electric range also affect it?

Since I've had some troubles with my device, I really want to avoid anything that could affect it egatively.

I would appreciate if you could share your opinion about it.

Thank you.


Not to worry!

Thousands of PM hosts in the US safely use electric ranges.  We have one - we have used one for my entire life as a PM Host.  No adverse effects - ever.  That's over 14 years.

You should hear from several Brits - the induction heated stove top is far more common there than in the US.  I can onlry recalll one person having a  problen w/ a PM & their induction heated top.  The induction heating element is designed to keep the magnetic foelg constrained to the space w/i close range of the coil, sounless you literally lie down w/ your PM right over the heating element you will have no problems.  All you have to do is stand up reasonably straight for the PM to be far enough away so it is safe for your device.


Thank you so much!

Dear donr,

Thank you very much for your very generous comment. It makes me feel a lot easy.

Here in Japan the induction heated stove top is common, but we don't use electric ranges with heating coils any more. So I have no information about it.

Thank you again for your comment. I truly appreciate it!

No Problems

I also use an electric range/ stove.   

It would be a good excuse for not cooking though.  :)
