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.
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.
The cooktops are incredibly fast and precise. The induction tops bring your water to a boil much faster than a gas unit would. They are also very helpful when preparing dishes that require consistent temperatures. When you get a unit, you will enjoy cooking that is energy efficient, safe and fast. When you purchase induction cooktop, you will also need to get induction cookware. Flat based stainless steel or cast iron cookware will be what you need to enjoy the convenience of cooking using these cooktops. You can use a refrigerator magnet to test whether the pots and pans you have are compatible to the cooktops; if the magnets sticks to base of your pans and pots then you will be able to use them on the cooktop.
All in all these cooktops are a great addition to any kitchen and can add flexibility to your cooking style. It will take a little time to adjust to the speed of the cooking, if you have never used this type of cooking, but once you get used to it, you can cook many things fast and easy.
The two most popular types of cooktops that are most sought after in the market are the electric and gas cooktops. Each has their advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your needs, each offers distinct features that vary greatly in terms of appearance, safety and performance. Therefore, if you are thinking of an upgrade from an existing conventional cooktop or are renovating your kitchen and are planning to get a new one, the electric or the gas version are your best bet.
Cooks who would rather save on energy would be more inclined to use an electric cooktop. Keep in mind, electric stoves are not overly environmentally friendly. Heat from the electric stoves are in constant contact with saucepans and pots. Because more times than not, electricity coming from an electric stove is not from renewable energies. This wasted heat will seep into the atmosphere and add to greenhouse gases. Electric cooktops are a good choice for cooks who want to use low temperatures for cooking. However, electric stoves are more costly than gas cooktops because they are manufactured with material that is more costly such as halogen, semi-halogen, and radiant coil. However, choices of electric cooktops are varying more and more and the newer type, induction is becoming popular.
