For those building or moving into a new home, one of the favorite rooms to personalize is the kitchen. Some people spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking for the family and want it to meet their needs. One area that can leave people wanting more say is the stovetop. Some homes have stoves that run on electric while others have gas stoves that they prefer.
You have more control with the range of heat reaching the pot when you use gas but the drawback to gas cooktops is that they emit nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide when the burners are turned on. Rather than using electric, consider the new induction cooktop. Here is a look at how it works.
What is Induction Cooking?
Induction cooking uses gas but avoids the combustion toxins. It’s a new technology that eliminates the drawbacks of gas stovetops while allowing you the benefits to them. They are faster, safer, easier to clean and energy-efficient.
If you have grease or food overflowing from your pan, you don’t have to worry about a fire. You also aren’t going to get burnt from touching the cooktop. Dangerous fumes and cooking fuels are not going to be there and children aren’t going to get burnt from the hot burner (the cooktop stays cool).
Induction cooking is an energy-efficient method more than gas, electric or halogen. The energy you are spending money on is going into the pan. With there being no cool down, the cooktop will immediately go on standby which means no energy is being used when turned off. You might see 40-70% energy savings and your kitchen will stay cooler.
Easy to Clean and Fast to Use
It’s faster to use than gas and is only concerned about heating the pan rather than the cooking surface. You need pots that have iron content and a flat bottom and then you’ll see great results.
There are no grates and burned-on grease to clean up. You just need a damp cloth and you can wipe the flat surface easily. Most gas cooktops are hard to clean.
For these reasons, you may want to consider an induction cooktop for your next home or kitchen renovation.
