Interesting effect--the foil must be in close proximity to the coils to heat up--and it does indeed do that very quickly.  Move it an 1/8" away and the effect is negligible.  What's interesting is to see the foil "jump" when power is applied.

Interesting.  Attempting to reproduce on the inductive cooktop I have here resulted in an immediate fault and shutdown.  Apparently my unit is too smart to indulge experimentation with metals that fail the magnet test.  Quell bummer!
