There are a lot of advantages to using magnetic induction cooktops. First, they are breaking records for the speed that they bring 6 quarts of water close to boiling. The heat that is emitted is even and liquids simmer perfectly. The cooktop stays much cooler than a conventional cooktop which means no burned flesh, no burnt on spills and less heat loss which leads to a very hot kitchen. A huge safety feature is that induction elements turn off automatically when the magnetic pot is removed from the burner, even if you don`t want them to. So this greatly reduces the chance of having a cooking related fire in your kitchen.
Here is the drawback to gas cooktop - they are NOT easy to clean! I can`t tell you how many people tell me about how they`ve scratched the porcelain or stainless steel on their cooking surface trying to scour it clean. And that`s not to mention normal heat discoloration that is easily visible after regular use with stainless steel cooking surfaces. The grates are also hard to keep looking new. Grates should not be washed in the dishwasher as the rubber grommets will wash out. The grates will more than likely develop rust in the dishwasher, too.
