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.
Try a creative approach to maximize the functionality of your small kitchen. Find ways to create a multipurpose space with practical furniture items that are useful but can be easily stored out of the way. Some ideas include: Backless bar stools that can tuck away, Roll-out kitchen cabinets or tables, Drop-down, wall-mounted tables or cutting boards.
Another great advantage that comes with using an induction cooktop is that there is no wasted heat. The energy is supplied to the cooking vessel by the magnetic fields and this way it all gets transferred to the vessel without anything getting lost during the process. With traditional stoves, the kitchen becomes a sauna when you’re cooking something because lots of the heat gets lost instead of being used properly.
Gas stoves allow you to cook food faster. They heat both the bottom and the sides of the pan so it gets hotter faster and the heat is distributed in a way that lets food cook faster than when you use an electric stove.
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.
While most small kitchens don’t have the space required for large, rectangular pot racks, there are options for smaller spaces. Pot racks don’t have to hang from the ceiling; some can be wall-mounted, like the pegboard wall above.
