Precise cooking is accomplished with the ability to change temperature or power levels without response times. The change is instant. Little heat is wasted because the cooktop is 83 percent energy efficient and cost about $0.12 per hour to operate. With increased cooking times, it costs only pennies to cook a meal. Induction cooktops are plugged into a standard household outlet. Water can be boiled and oil heated to cooking temperature in only a few seconds. You can fry, stir-fry, sauté, warm, or boil your food depending on the power level or temperature level needed. To boil water you would set the power level high. However, if a dish required cooking at a particular temperature you would use the temperature mode to set the appropriate level.
Imagine this scenario. You drag in from work and have to cook dinner for your family. As you get the food ready to go, you place to pots on the cook top to start heating up. Meanwhile, your two small children are running around the kitchen after being cooped up all day in day care or preschool. Before you know it, one of the trips and grabs the cooktop to stop from falling. Your child`s hand touches the edge of the burner that is hot and burns his hand pretty badly which means a trip to the hospital. This scenario can and does happen each and every day in households across the United States and around the world. Now, imagine the same scenario with a magnetic induction cooktop. Your child`s hand touches the edge of the burner but DOES NOT get burned! You get to fuss at your children, tell them to quit running around so wildly and then you kick them out of the kitchen. There is no burned flesh and no need to make a trip the ER to have your child`s hand treated for burns!
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.
You also have to figure in the cost of new cookware for the new cooktop. This technology requires you to use cookware that is made of cast iron or enameled steel. You can try to use your old stainless-steel cookware and sometimes you will get lucky and it will work. But if you have copper or aluminum pots and pans, you are out of luck. One way to test your cookware is to see if a magnet will stick to it. If the magnet sticks, your cookware will most probably work.
Here is the drawback to gas cooktop - they are NOT easy to clean! I can`t tell you how many people tell me about how they`ve scratched the porcelain or stainless steel on their cooking surface trying to scour it clean. And that`s not to mention normal heat discoloration that is easily visible after regular use with stainless steel cooking surfaces. The grates are also hard to keep looking new. Grates should not be washed in the dishwasher as the rubber grommets will wash out. The grates will more than likely develop rust in the dishwasher, too.
If a precise temperature needs to be maintained during cooking, the temperature mode can be used. The temperature will be maintained until the unit is turned off, pan removed, or temperature is changed. Cooking with Duxtop Induction Cooktop is quicker and easier than electric and gas cooking. Safe to use, easy to install, and a snap to clean, the Duxtop Induction Cooktop is a welcome addition to any kitchen. With the new sensor touch, your cooking experience is more enjoyable, convenient, and easy using a simple touch of the finger, making the Duxtop Induction Cooktop an excellent choice.
