My only grill pans are cast iron so the speed of heating is moot. Grill pans do generate more smoke flavor, though it's not as good as a true grill. You might like Steve Raichlen's book on indoor grilling.    http://www.amazon.com/Indoor-Grilling-Steven-Raichlen/dp/0761133356/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1431377896&sr=8-1&keywords=raichlen+indoor+grilling   He'll give you some ideas, tips and recipes for getting more out of your grill pan.   Full disclosure: The book uses...
The evidence is not from quality sources. To the best of qualified science, aluminum is currently regarded as safe. Use the pans if you like how they cook. You're welcome to your own opinion of course.    I only use non-stick coated aluminum. Cheapest way to get decent non-stick. Beyond that, I prefer the cooking behavior of clad stainless steel to that of aluminum, even though the stainless cladding is over layer(s) of aluminum. 
In the vein of Soylent a new product has entered for people who don't like to eat beyond fueling the body.   www.mealsquares.com    I once had an acquaintance who couldn't taste. His favorite foods were about texture. Corn nuts, sparkling water and such.  These might be helpful for people in that situation. 
I make a lemon, garlic, and rosemary salt I quite enjoy.
Factory work can certainly be that way. I made bricks one summer between semesters at college.  Big mixing auger up about 20 feet above the system fed dry clay powder, colorant and water. Mixed clay fed into an extruder feeding a continuous extrusion of brick onto a conveyor belt. The clay extrusion moved into a cutter, probably 20 wires each strung in three sets that would rotate and slide at the rate of extrusion to cut them to size. The line of cut bricks hits the next...
Seems to be a sign up for a webinar on food allergies.  
I'd like to know more about the seasoning. No herbs or spice? Jack cheese is bland/mild and is nothing special with ham or chicken imho. Step it up to swiss or jarlsberg would be an improvement. or a provolone. Thyme, sage, rosemary, pick one and only one would work well also.   Maybe a mexican oregano  and some guajillo pepper if you're using a Mexican inspired mango salsa. Perhaps some oaxaca and a little cotija to finish instead of the jack.    Are they going to be...
For 3 cups of rice , it's 4.5 cups of water on Chefbuba's ratio. And I concur with that ratio for long grain rice. 
Considering how often people buy appliances, it can be hard to find reviews. My oven days back to the 1980s and my cooktop is from the 1990s.
It's going fine. I've not used any of the thin cast iron woks. I'm a little skeptical of cast iron on induction anyway. Cast iron doesn't spread heat. So you'll get 6 or so hot spots around the lower bowl but not in the center so much.    Notice how it boils water in a ring where the induction elements are.     Carbon steel conducts heat well enough that's not an issue. I think it would be with cast iron.
