Even with the efficiency of cooking food faster, these cooktops don`t emit as much heat into your kitchen as a gas or electric stove. In the summertime, you won`t have to worry about cooking and heating up your entire house, and this can actually keep your air conditioning bill down because there will be less heat in your home. When you choose one of the better brands for your cooktop, you can expect to get a product with the ability to do everything you are hoping for. Most of the best choices will give you a variety of heat settings and some even allow you to set a specific temperature, instead of just low, medium and high. This gives you extra flexibility, but this feature is not found with all of them.
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.
