This was to replace an older one that was pitted from me not understanding how to clean and season it for quite a while. So I replaced it with this, and bought one for my son for use with his induction. I have gas cooktop. He's happy with it on the induction and I'm very happy with it on the gas. The plate itself is slightly shorter than my old one but wider, so it fits plenty of food on it. I generally use it on my long fish burner, but could easily place it over the top of two gas rings instead.
