In addition, the electric cooktop is one of the top rated devices in terms of energy saving. Most of them are energy star rated which means they are extremely efficient in electricity consumption. The reason is due to the heating elements of the electric cooktop that are matched exactly to the size of the pans and pots where most of the heat is channeled to cooking food. On the other hand, the efficiency of the gas cook top is somewhere in 10% to 20%. Most of the heat is lost in the air instead of being used for heating.
Speaking of the cons of electric cooktop, the first thing that comes to my mind is the slow reaction time. Electric cooktop can be slow in terms of heating the pots and pans. Besides, some models of electric cooktop might be lacking in terms of power and temperature. Some high temperature cooking such as quick boiling and frying with a wok might not be possible with electric cook top. You might want to check with the specs before purchasing any cooktop. Some low end electric cooktop certainly lacks far behind its gas counterpart. But most high end and expensive electric cooktop will have a workaround for this issue.
