What Are Induction Cooktops? A Quick Introduction
Induction cooktops are rapidly gaining popularity among homeowners as a modern cooking solution because of their safety, efficiency and easy-cleaning benefits.
Unlike traditional cooktops (gas and ceramic), which rely on heating the cooktop’s surface to transfer heat to the cookware, induction cooktops generate heat directly within the cookware itself.
This direct transfer of energy is why induction cooktops heat cookware much faster, more efficiently and more evenly than traditional cooktops.
Why Australians are Choosing Induction Cooktops
– Savings: Government rebates and more energy-efficient cooking are the perfect recipe for a cheaper energy bill, saving Australians big long-term.
– Efficiency: Induction cooktops heat up in a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods, reducing cooking times and energy consumption.
– Precision Control: With precise temperature control settings, induction cooking allows for accurate and consistent results, whether you’re simmering delicate sauces or searing meats.
– Safety: The cooktop surface remains cool to the touch during cooking, minimising the risk of burns and making it safe for households with children.
– Easy Cleaning: The smooth surface of induction cooktops is easy to clean and maintain, with spills and splatters easily wiped away. No more weekend-long cleaning hassles.
– Gas-Free: Induction cooktops mean no more gas leaks which have many negative health impacts, including increased asthma rates. Households are saving big by going all electric and gutting their gas bill completely.
Choosing an Induction Cooktop
Regardless of which type of cooktop you choose, it is important to bear in mind the following when making a purchase:
Shop for a cooktop according to the amount of available space in your kitchen – There is no use fussing over how many cooking zones you need if you only have space for 4.
Some manufacturers now offer 90cm cooktops that fit a 60cm cutout which can give you that little bit of extra room for your cookware, where a 60cm maybe a little cramped.
Choose a cooktop that has the features that will be beneficial to you, such as timers, child locks and so on.
Look at the position of the elements or burners that suit the size and number of pans you use most times you cook, side or front control and so on.
It is important to consider energy efficiency when choosing a cooktop. An induction cooktop may require a larger initial outlay but it could save you money over the cooktop’s lifespan.
