Induction cooktops require more power. If you have a 30" cooktop presently, you more than likely have a 30 amp breaker. Most 30" induction cooktops will require a 40 amp service. You will more than likely need an electrician to make this work. If you need to boil more than one vessel at a time, make sure to find out about power sharing on induction cooktops. Some cooktops will only be able to produce a boil on one burner while others are being used. This can be problem for large families or for those who hire caterers to cook for dinner parties, etc. Having said this, there are models available that you are able to boil more than one pot at a time. Make sure you know those models that can.
With a one or two burner induction cooktop, you will gain more space to cook in your kitchen. This allows you to cook for larger groups or prepare more courses. It is an easy way to add a few extra burners or just one extra burner to your kitchen. The right induction cooktop will be very portable, which allows you to take it with you anytime you need. If you need to keep a dish warm for a potluck dinner or you want to take it with you camping, you can. Those that travel in an RV will love the flexibility they get with it. As long as you can plug it in, you can cook with it, which makes it a great tool for anybody to own.
In addition, the variable-size elements in electric cooktop are a huge advantage over the gas version. Variable-size elements means the elements can match exactly the size of any pans and pots. This is something that the gas cooktop is lacking. Other than the variable size elements, other features that are available in electric cook top but are lacking in gas cooktop are the warming zones and bridge elements that will match irregular pans and pots sizes. The variable-size and bridge elements are definitely a must-have for any environment conscious persons as they maximize the usage of electricity.
So which is better - gas or induction? That`s up to you to decide. If you want high performance and easy cleaning, induction is a great choice. If you entertain and need to boil many pots at once, or even if you lose power often where you live (most gas cooktops can be lit manually with a match), gas may be the right one for you. The great thing about cooktops today is we have so many great choices to choose from in gas and induction.
Speed, Most induction cooktops have proven they can cook food faster than gas or electric stoves. Induction cooking takes advantage of nearly 90% of the heat / energy created, whereas gas and electric stoves only take advantage of 30% to 40%. The heat from gas and electric stoves escapes to the sides of the pan, but with induction, cooking this doesn`t happen. With the ability to cook faster, you can prepare better meals in less time. This is a huge advantage and many people become hooked once they discover how to properly use their cooktop.
