Induction cooktops are the modern version of traditional stoves. They are very different for several reasons. First of all, they don’t use direct heat of open flames like gas stoves. They use induction and this means that heat is transferred from one vessel to another. This helps food cook evenly and makes the stove safer. But, as in the case of any other type of cooktop, this one has both advantages and disadvantages. Let’s take a look at some of the pros.
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.
Since induction cooktops are a relatively new creation, lots of people seem to be concerned about all sorts of things. For example, there’s the issue related to power. Induction cooktops are much more powerful than gas stoves so there’s really nothing to worry about it in this sector. Also, there’s the problem of radiations. However, there are no radiation-associated hazards that come with using an induction cooktop so this is just another myth.
Of course, we can’t forget about safety. A very important feature that defines induction cooktops is the fact that the stovetop stays cool. You will no longer accidentally burn your hands unless, of course, you touch the induction unit on purpose. You can safely place your grocery list or recipe book on the stovetop near the pot without having to worry about anything.
