Why should I choose induction cooking for my kitchen?

Induction cooktops vs. traditional cooktops


More precise temperature control, speedier cooking times, and easier cleanup

  • Unlike regular gas or electric cooktops, induction cooktops skip the heating element and flame and instead use electromagnetic energy to heat pans and pots.
  • With induction cooking offering responsive temperature control, it is reported by the rating system Energy Star as being 5-10% more energy efficient than conventional electric cooktops and 3 times more efficient than gas. 



The benefits of low-current induction cooktops


Ability to operate on existing home wiring

  • Traditional induction cooktops require a significant amount of power to operate efficiently.
  • Alternatively, low-current induction cooktops are crafted to operate on existing home wiring, meaning they can run on standard household electrical outlets without the need for expensive upgrades.
  • This makes low-current induction cooktops an attractive option for homeowners who are looking to implement induction cooking into their household without breaking the bank.



Save on costs and energy

  • Induction technology delivers precise and instantaneous heat directly to cookware - unlike conventional gas or electric stovetops that can waste energy through heat dispersion.
  • Not only resulting in faster cooking times, but also minimizes energy waste - ultimately saving you money on your utility bills.
  • Low-current induction cooktops are designed to use only the amount of power necessary to heat your cookware, making them very efficient compared to high-current induction cooktops.



Increased safety and convenience

  • Low-current induction cooktops offer a collection of safety features that make them an ideal choice for families.
  • As induction technology heats cookware directly, the surface of the cooktop remains cool to the touch, greatly reducing the risk of burns and kitchen accidents - this is advantageous for households with young children or pets, to provide peace of mind. 
  • The precise temperature control offered by induction cooktops allows for more accurate cooking results, whether you're simmering sauces or searing meats to perfection.
