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.
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.
