Making the right choice in cooktop appliances goes to the heart of how you want to heat food when cooking. The three choices are gas, electric an induction. Induction cooking requires the right set of pots and pans. Heat is only transferred when the proper metal connection is made between the metal and the burner. The pictures here show how there is boiling water next to ice on the same burner and also another example where chocolate is melted in the pan, but not so on the burner. Gas and electricity each have their “pros and cons” with a decision typically being made by the preference of the home owner. All of these cooktops come from Kuppersbusch where more information can be found here.
