Not sure about comparables between gas and induction, but the speed with which the temperature adjusts is similar. Remember though, that you have to use pans and cookware that will work with the magnetic energy - no glass, copper-bottom, aluminum, etc. There are some stainless steels (few), cast iron, and enamel on steel pans that will work. To be sure, if a magnet sticks to the bottom it will work. Another issue, that Jenn Aire may not have but that my Kenmore does have, is the size of the pan. The burners on mine do not fit the very small size sauce pans - I guess they do not span the points necessary to make the conduction. But I do really like mine - it's the best compromise for gas I've come across yet!
