Can I run an induction cooktop with an off-the-grid solar system?

We are in the final details of building plans for our off-grid home. Since the new induction cooktops are supposed to be so energy efficient and we would like to get away from propane use when at all possible, we were wondering if it would make sense to have an electric induction cooktop? Of course, the oven would have to be run on propane, which we would use as little as possible - and instead use the oven in our masonry heater during the winter and a bread/pizza oven we plan to build in our backyard during the summer. What do you think?

Sure it can be run off solar, if the solar system is designed properly for the load and power requirements.

As for what that will take, you would have to look...
