Well, an electric induction cooktop has the same benefits of a gas cooktop, without the disadvantages and in an easier to use design. With cooktops, heat can be regulated instantly, cut off without lingering heat, and you can even use the built in timer for precisely timed cooking. No excess heat is released into the room from the cooktops. The Duxtop 8300 ST, sensor touch cooktop, has power modes, temperature modes, and a 170 minute automatic timer for the most precise cooking all of which can be adjusted with the soft touch of your finger to the control panel. It is the only sensor touch model available on the market today. It generates 1800 watts of power making it one of the most powerful models on the market. At power level 7, or 1800 watts, a pot of water can be brought to boiling in almost no time. Oil for stir-fry is hot in just seconds.
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!
You won`t need glass cleaner or any special cleaner for most of the induction cooktops on the market. They are made with a surface that is very easy to clean after you are done. Just a washcloth, soap and water are about all you really need to clean most of the cooktops available. With a gas stove, you cannot avoid releasing toxins into the air you breathe and even some can escape with electric stoves. However, when you add an induction cooktop to your kitchen, you don`t have to worry about any safety issues. No toxins will be released and the surface will remain cook, so that you don`t burn yourself.
Induction cooking does require special cookware which can easily be purchased if you don`t already own some. Stainless steel and cast iron are two examples of induction cookware. As a general rule, if a magnet sticks to the bottom of the pot or pan in can be used on an induction cooktop. The bottom of the pan should be at least four inches in diameter to operate properly on most induction cooktops, including the Duxtop Induction Cooktop. The Sensor touch cooktop provides a truly enjoyable cooking experience with its convenient, simple operation. With only the touch of your fingertip to the control panel you can make any changes to your cooking. No more stickers peeling off, corners rolling up, or unsightly appearance after just a few months of use that you often see with sticker control panels. The Sensor touch is durable and steady for years of use and cleaning. The sleek, elegant design makes the induction cooktop a welcome addition to any kitchen. For quick, precise cooking, you can`t go wrong with Duxtop Induction Cooktop 8300ST.
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.
