Most cooktops come in sizes of 30 inches wide that offer four burners or 36 inches wide with five burners. High-end, professional-style cooktops can measure as wide as 48 inches and come with up to six burners and additional cooking surfaces like grills or griddles. The bigger the cooktop, the higher the price tag and the more counter space youll need for installation. Youll also need to consider how to vent your cooktop if it will be installed where a range or cooktop hasnt been before. Range hoods can do the job if the cooktop will be under a cabinet, but if you plan to install in a kitchen island, look for downdraft cooktops that use fans to pull smoke, steam and grease down rather than up, avoiding the need for a hood.
Downdraft cooktops are cleaner in their operation. They do not require nearly as much maintenance has hooded cooktops. They save you a lot of space, that you can easily use for other useful things such as cutting up the veggies you want to cook on your downdraft cooktop. There is also no hood above the cooktop, which is cumbersome and noisy. And by saving that much space in your kitchen and by making it quiet, you make your kitchen look very modern indeed. Who wants to be cooped up in a small, noisy kitchen, when you can also be cooking in a large, silent kitchen? Buying a cooktop is no small thing. They are quite pricey. But then again, they also last a long time and are an absolutely essential investment if you want to have the capability of cooking your food. There are many manufacturers that build excellent downdraft cooktops these days. Some examples are KitchenAid, Whirlpool, General Electric, Dacor and Bosch. Pretty much all of them are of at least decent quality. But before you buy any of them, make sure youve thoroughly read their list of features. You dont want to buy a cooktop and then find out it cant do what you wanted it to do so badly.
3. They can be expensive With lots of new models now available in the market the prices have gone down remarkably. But because the models still differ in more ways than one, you will still find the cooktops a little more expensive compared to electric and gas units. A little research on the cooktops can however still get you an affordable one that is still high in quality. Always look at the design feature like number of burners, automatic pan size recognition, timers and automatic safety shut offs because they are some of the features that can affect the price. The size of the cooktop also dictates price so always weigh your options to get the most functional cooktop you can afford comfortably.
In terms of appearance, the electric version definitely looks much better over the gas due to its sleek design that features smooth surface, embedded digital panels, touch controls and are available in a variety of colors to match your kitchen design. I am not saying the gas cooktop is not pretty but the knobs that appear in most of them are definitely an ugly sight in a modern kitchen that features futuristic design. Moreover, the embedded touch control and the smooth surface in electric cooktop is absolutely a superb compliment to any kitchen designs. In addition, the variable-size elements in electric cooktop are a huge advantage over the gas version. Variable-size elements means the elements can match exactly the size of any pans and pots. This is something that the gas cooktop is lacking. Other than the variable size elements, other features that are available in electric cook top but are lacking in gas cooktop are the warming zones and bridge elements that will match irregular pans and pots sizes. The variable-size and bridge elements are definitely a must-have for any environment conscious persons as they maximize the usage of electricity.
