Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between ceramic and induction cooktops?

>

Ceramic and induction cooktops look similar as they both have a flat surface made from glass-ceramic, which looks and feels like glass, but is much harder to break and withstands extreme heat. The fundamental difference is in the way they provide heat for cooking.

Induction cooktops have no flame burners or heating elements under the glass surface, instead electricity runs through coiled copper wires heating the pan, not the cooktop. Induction cooktops are higher priced but offer additional ‘safety’ and energy saving benefits & precise temperature control.

A ceramic cooktop contains heating elements under each control zone. The cooktop heats up first and then the pan. Induction cooktops use less energy, but certain pots and pans cannot be used on an induction cooktop. Ceramic cooktops are a more affordable, equally stylish option and have no restrictions around the pots and pans to be used.

What are the benefits of a gas cooktop vs induction cooktop?

>

The obvious benefit to a gas cooktop is that you’ll always be able to cook food, even in a power outage. Gas cooktops offer instant controllable heat (most professional chefs use gas) are very affordable and you can cook using any type of pot or pan. The downside is that if you are not connected to mains gas, you’ll have the hassle of bottled gas, and these cooktops are difficult to clean.

Induction cooktops, while more expensive to buy, offer the fastest, most precise heat. They are safer to use, more energy efficient than gas and because the surface never gets hot, are really easy to clean. However you won’t be able to use them in a power outage and you will have to make sure your pots and pans are induction-compatible.
