Cherelle Fournier Cooktops February 28, 2019 09:46:44
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.
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.
