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.
Imagine this scenario. You drag in from work and have to cook dinner for your family. As you get the food ready to go, you place to pots on the cook top to start heating up. Meanwhile, your two small children are running around the kitchen after being cooped up all day in day care or preschool. Before you know it, one of the trips and grabs the cooktop to stop from falling. Your childs hand touches the edge of the burner that is hot and burns his hand pretty badly which means a trip to the hospital. This scenario can and does happen each and every day in households across the United States and around the world. Now, imagine the same scenario with a magnetic induction cooktop. Your childs hand touches the edge of the burner but DOES NOT get burned! You get to fuss at your children, tell them to quit running around so wildly and then you kick them out of the kitchen. There is no burned flesh and no need to make a trip the ER to have your childs hand treated for burns.
If you live in a small apartment and are constantly irritated by the smell of frying fish, then you probably have a cooktop without a vent. Surely, not only are you irritated by the harsh odors of fish and other foods cooking, your curtains, pillow sheets, bed sheets and even your hair take on the smell. Its okay if the scent is pretty easy to get rid of, but if you have poor ventilation, it might be a problem for you. That is why there are now downdraft gas cooktops available at your disposal from various appliance manufacturers. First of all, you might ask what downdraft gas cooktops are. That is a fairly normal question since this type of cooktop is quite new in the market and is still on the way of receiving more recognition. Although it does not have a full hood and exhaust system to effectively puff out the smoke that your cooking emits, it does have its own system that will effectively minimize, if not eliminate, the stink that sticks to your clothes whenever you are cooking something.
Do you have a certain style of cooking? Are you presently looking for a new cooktop? Before jumping at the first one you see, you need to examine the types of cooktops which are available. Keep in mind, each type has their advantages and disadvantages. There used to be only two choices of cooktops available. The only options were electric or gas. Now, there is another option around. Before that option is discussed, lets talk about electric and gas cooktops. Cooks would rather use gas cooktops instead of electric. The main reason for that is, the heat can be controlled much easier. Gas stoves are also much more inexpensive and environmentally friendly than electric stoves. The colour selection is huge, and comes in different finishes such as glass, stainless steel, enamel and aluminum. One disadvantage of gas cooktops is that they are less energy efficient than electric stoves. It takes a lot of energy to use gas cooktops and they can be energy wasters.
