When buying a cooktop, we need to consider a few things. If we want to use gas for cooking, we surely need to buy a gas type. We can find a lot of gas cooktops in Thermadors inventory. We can choose from either 4 burner model or 5 burner model. All of the models are made of stainless steel. If we love to cook, we should buy a 5 burner Thermador cooktop. But if we dont cook too often, the 4 burner model is just fine. The gas type comes in two sizes, 30" and 36". If we want an energy-saving type, we should buy an Induction Thermador cooktop. This type will give us the ability to cook faster. If we have children at home, this type is also a lot safer. The type does not produce fire, and anything that falls to it will not get burned. An induction type is also easier to clean. Thermador provides many models of induction types that we can choose from. Some of the induction models are quite simple, but some others have great features, like the Sensor Dome. It is better for us to buy an induction Thermador cooktop with stainless steel frame, because it more durable. Just like gas type, induction type also comes in two sizes, 30" and 36". Thermador also provides electric type. Just like gas and induction types, electric type also comes in two sizes, 30" and 36". Whichever the type that we choose, we have made the right decision when we buy a Thermador cooktop.
Part 1 of this series explained how Induction cooktops use magnetic hysteresis loss to directly heat the the pot or pan. Part 2 explained the growing popularity of induction cooking by exploring inductions many advantages over conventional cooking technologies. By this time, you are very likely thinking that induction cooking may be appropriate for your kitchen. However, before purchasing an induction cooktop, there are several things that you should consider. These issues are explained in this installment of the Induction Cooking Explained series. Compatible Cookware Considerations As explained in part 1, induction cooktops work only with cookware made from ferrous materials. Anyone with a significant investment in aluminum, glass, ceramic or non-magnetic stainless steel cookware will need to be aware that these types of cookware will not work on an induction cooktop and should include the cost purchasing new cookware when evaluating the cost of the induction cooktop. However, much of the most popular cookware used on conventional cooktops will work with induction cooktops, so many people will be able to use their existing cookware.
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.
3. Portability The right induction cooktop will be very portable, which allows you to take it with you anytime you need. If you need to keep a dish warm for a potluck dinner or you want to take it with you camping, you can. Those that travel in an RV will love the flexibility they get with it. As long as you can plug it in, you can cook with it, which makes it a great tool for anybody to own. 4. Easy to Clean You wont need glass cleaner or any special cleaner for most of the induction cooktops on the market. They are made with a surface that is very easy to clean after you are done. Just a washcloth, soap and water are about all you really need to clean most of the cooktops available.
