One detail that characterizes induction cooktops and that professional cooks appreciate in general is the fact that you can adjust the heat instantly and with great precision. This way the temperature you want to use for cooking will be more exact.
However, there are a few cons as well, the most important one being that gas stoves are expensive to buy and to install. This means they’re a big investment and not everyone is willing to spend that much for an appliance.
Also, electric stoves are useless during power outages. If you live in an area subject to frequent power outages, this is not the type of stove you should be using. They use a lot of electricity and not all generators are able to handle that.
Storage Always on the look-out for good kitchen storage ideas, Defrez found this drawer design from Crown Point Cabinetry. Not only does it feature angled spice storage with ample-sized containers, it has a divided section and both parts are illuminated with LED lights that come on when you open it. No more digging in dark drawers or straining to read spice jar labels.
Another great example of a clean, modern look is this kitchen island from Scavolini. It is also innovative because of the porcelain material used for the top. Textured, matte and durable, even when you touch it, it’s hard to believe porcelain is the material. The cabinetry is equally smooth and sleek.
If your goal is to create a contemporary kitchen space, one of the most important design elements is minimalist, uncluttered kitchen counters. This not only looks modern, but it increases counter area, making it easier to prep and cook. The first step is to put away all small appliances and countertop items.
