Most people probably dont usually give cooktops a second thought. Your kitchen generally comes with one when you move in, and it probably does the job. However, a new cooktop can not only beautify your kitchen, but can make your cooking more efficient. You can find some great cooktops whether you have a gas stove, an electric range, or use induction cooking. Cooktops come in a variety of widths, number of burners (four is typical but you can find cooktops with 5, 6 or more, and cooktops with fewer burners as well), and type of burner, sealed or open for gas burners and glass or coil for electric burners. If youre in the market for a sealed gas burner cooktop, a really cool one is the Whirlpool GLT3657R 36 inch. This cooktop has five sealed burners, full width cast iron grates to allow you to place large pots anywhere on the cooktop surface, and includes two 12,500 BTU Power(TM) burners for when you need to get something hot fast. Theyre great for boiling water, among many other uses.
What to Expect from a Top of the Line Portable Induction Cooktop When you choose one of the better brands for your cooktop, you can expect to get a product with the ability to do everything you are hoping for. Most of the best choices will give you a variety of heat settings and some even allow you to set a specific temperature, instead of just low, medium and high. This gives you extra flexibility, but this feature is not found with all of them. You can also expect to buy new cookware made for the induction cooktop. To figure out if you need new cookware or not, just use a magnet and see if it sticks to your pan or not. Cast iron is great for induction cooking, but if you do have to get a new set of cookware, there are some great sets out there that are made specifically for these cooktops. All in all these cooktops are a great addition to any kitchen and can add flexibility to your cooking style. It will take a little time to adjust to the speed of the cooking, if you have never used this type of cooking, but once you get used to it, you can cook many things fast and easy.
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.
Cooktops are indispensable appliances in our kitchens. Their functions have expanded recently from merely an appliance for cooking to something that reflects styles and that beautifies your kitchens. They have come a long way from the old fashion four burners model to the current ultra sophisticated unit that incorporates advanced features including digital control panels, smooth tops, precise temperature controls and different burner configurations. The two most popular types of cooktops that are most sought after in the market are the electric and gas cooktops. Each has their advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your needs, each offers distinct features that vary greatly in terms of appearance, safety and performance. Therefore, if you are thinking of an upgrade from an existing conventional cooktop or are renovating your kitchen and are planning to get a new one, the electric or the gas version are your best bet.
