$500.00. This particular one is fairly old and has gotten a lot of use and now only works with stainless steel pans, though they say it used to work with Le Creuset.
It is amazingly fast, and I believe it is low in energy use. I was reducing stock for a sauce and I burnt it to a crisp right in front of the class. I had to take the pot home to soak overnight and return it the next day.
One thing to get used to is that the pan must lie flat for there to be heat. If you lift it to toss or tilt is to baste, you lose heat for a moment.
