When you add an induction cooktop and matching cookware to your kitchen, you gain many benefits. What would you do if your stovetop stopped working? Do you have a plan for how you would cook while choosing a new stove and getting it installed? Most people don`t and it causes a huge interruption in their life when their stove goes out. Even losing one burner or one side of your stove can cause issues. What about cooking for larger groups around the holidays? Do you have the space and the ability to do host family parties with groups of 10 or more? If not, adding an induction cooktop might be the answer. Here is what you get from the right induction cooktop.
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.
