Cooktops are indispensable appliances in our kitchens. Their functions have expanded recently from merely an appliance for cooking to something that reflects styles and that beautifies your kitchens. They have come a long way from the old fashion four burners` model to the current ultra sophisticated unit that incorporates advanced features including digital control panels, smooth tops, precise temperature controls and different burner configurations.
In terms of appearance, the electric version definitely looks much better over the gas due to its sleek design that features smooth surface, embedded digital panels, touch controls and are available in a variety of colors to match your kitchen design. I am not saying the gas cooktop is not pretty but the knobs that appear in most of them are definitely an ugly sight in a modern kitchen that features futuristic design. Moreover, the embedded touch control and the smooth surface in electric cooktop is absolutely a superb compliment to any kitchen designs.
Induction cooktops basically create electromagnetic reactions between the cooking zone and the pot. This means that the cooktops utilize magnetic reactions to create heat that enables you to do your cooking. Unlike electric cooktops that heat cooking zones before transferring the heat to your pot, the induction ones create heat with the pot making the cooking fast, energy efficient and safe too. These cooktops are available in a wide range of designs, sizes and features and to get the best you would need to make proper determinations. But even before you make your purchase, there are important things you should know about the cooktops so you are able to decide whether they are worth the purchase or not.
Other disadvantage of electric cook top compared to gas cooktop is the power supply. If there is a cut in the power supply, then there will be no cooking. In short, no electricity means no cooking. On the other hand, you can still do whatever cooking you like with gas cooktop even if there is no electricity.
Do you have a certain style of cooking? Are you presently looking for a new cooktop? Before jumping at the first one you see, you need to examine the types of cooktops which are available. Keep in mind, each type has their advantages and disadvantages. There used to be only two choices of cooktops available. The only options were electric or gas. Now, there is another option around. Before that option is discussed, lets talk about electric and gas cooktops.
Induction cooking is gaining popularity due to its more economical pricing, additional selections, and environmental friendly operating. Induction cooking is more cost and energy efficient than cooking on either electric or gas cooktops. Induction cooking involves an electromagnetic field that when touched to induction cookware generates heat in the cookware. The actual cooktop does not get hot except where the cookware is sitting. The only sensor touch cooktop on the market is the Duxtop Induction Cooktop Model 8300ST which generates up to 1800 watts of power, the highest on the market today. In addition, the Duxtop Induction Cooktop offers 7 power levels and 10 temperature levels allowing for precise cooking. With the 170 minute automatic timer you can hardly go wrong. These cooktops provide quicker cooking times, release less heat, and clean-up is a breeze.
