You also have to figure in the cost of new cookware for the new cooktop. This technology requires you to use cookware that is made of cast iron or enameled steel. You can try to use your old stainless-steel cookware and sometimes you will get lucky and it will work. But if you have copper or aluminum pots and pans, you are out of luck. One way to test your cookware is to see if a magnet will stick to it. If the magnet sticks, your cookware will most probably work.
Other disadvantage of electric cook top compared to gas cooktop is the power supply. If there is a cut in the power supply, then there will be no cooking. In short, no electricity means no cooking. On the other hand, you can still do whatever cooking you like with gas cooktop even if there is no electricity.
