In conclusion, there are pros and cons with electric cook top compared to gas cooktop. Therefore, before doing any purchase, do take all these advantages and disadvantages into your consideration. The rule of thumbs here is to figure out what your cooking frequency and style is. For instance, if you do a lot of cooking at home and you require high intensity cooking that utilizes high temperature and fast reaction time, the gas version is definitely your best bet. On the other hand, if you do only seasonal cooking once in a blue moon or maybe you do only light cooking, then the electric cooktop is certainly the way to go.
I don`t know about you, but the second scenario is much more appealing to me. This exact scenario could play out in your house if you owned a magnetic induction cooktop. You would never again have to worry about you or your kids accidentally touching the cooktop and getting burned. This is a reality for many people that are confined to wheel chairs as well. Magnetic induction cooktops are the fastest-heating cooktops that you will find. When you turn on your magnetic induction cooktop, electricity passes through the magnetic elements under the cooktop`s surface. When this happens, a magnetic field of energy forms that then heats up the pan that is sitting on the cooktop. Induction isn`t new but it isn`t widely used right now. Restaurants and cooking schools are starting to make the switch to this type of heat and it is a top seller for industry leaders like Gaggenau, Kenmore, and Viking.
Many of the reasons people use gas stovetops can also be found in induction cooktops. An induction cooktop heats food by generating an electromagnetic field when a piece of induction cookware, such as cast iron or stainless steel, is placed on the cooktop. The cooktop creates heat in the cookware which then heats the food. The cooktop stays cool except where the cookware is sitting, even if turned "on". Gas cooktop proponents generally tout the fact that the heat can be turned off instantly with no lingering heat and cooking temperatures can be regulated easier because no time to reduce or increase heat is necessary. Opponents of gas talk of the small leaks of gas into the house, the open flame, and greater potential for fire.
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.
The biggest reason that you don`t find magnetic induction cooktops in every home is the cost of the cooktop and the pots and pans. When this technology first came out, prices range from $1,800 to $3,500. When you compare that with $550 to $750 for top-performing electric cooktops and $650 to $1,200 for gas, the price is a bit steep for most people. But if you shop around online, many times you can find discounts that will make it more affordable.
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.
