5. Safety With a gas stove, you cannot avoid releasing toxins into the air you breathe and even some can escape with electric stoves. However, when you add an induction cooktop to your kitchen, you dont have to worry about any safety issues. No toxins will be released and the surface will remain cook, so that you dont burn yourself. 6. Less Heat Even with the efficiency of cooking food faster, these cooktops dont emit as much heat into your kitchen as a gas or electric stove. In the summertime, you wont have to worry about cooking and heating up your entire house, and this can actually keep your air conditioning bill down because there will be less heat in your home.
Other advantages of electric cooktops over its gas counterpart are safety and energy usage issues. In terms of safety, a cooktop that uses electricity is definitely safer than the one uses gas. Imagine having a tank or a cylinder loaded with gas sitting at the back of your kitchen. The incident of explosion of a gas cylinder is certainly higher than the incident of faulty electricity. In addition, the electric cooktop is one of the top rated devices in terms of energy saving. Most of them are energy star rated which means they are extremely efficient in electricity consumption. The reason is due to the heating elements of the electric cooktop that are matched exactly to the size of the pans and pots where most of the heat is channeled to cooking food. On the other hand, the efficiency of the gas cook top is somewhere in 10% to 20%. Most of the heat is lost in the air instead of being used for heating.

A downdraft gas cooktop is a cooktop that doesnt come with a hood on top, but with a downdraft mechanism inside itself. All the unwanted smells that inevitably arise from cooking food on your gastop, will be sucked down and vented outside. One little catch is that your home has to have support for downdraft exhaustion. If it doesnt, your house can be modified so that it does, but this will not be practical for everybody. So with this out of the way, lets focus on the advantages of downdraft cooktops for a little bit. Because once you go downdraft, you wont want anything else any longer. If you have a kitchen that does not have the space for a very large bench area, then the cooktop itself is going to fit nicely onto the counter top. If you have downdraft ventilation, then all the smoke, air and smells will be sucked down by the cooktop and vented outside. There is no longer any need for a hooded, external exhaust fan. This causes your cooktop to run a whole lot cleaner than it were if it had a hood. Hooded cooktops also make one heck of a lot more noise, while downdrafts are very silent when it comes to operation.
