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.
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.
