Should You Have An Induction Cooktop In Your Kitchen?

Having an induction cooktop in your kitchen has many great benefits, first off the bat you can save money and energy because the pan is heated up and not the induction plate so the surface of the hob will be warm and there will be no burned on food to scrape off later.

The controls are integrated into a touch control system so you don’t need to clean awkward knobs after cooking. This also means that you can set the temperature exactly how you want it, so you can get the results you set out to achieve when cooking with the right heat.

With the induction cooktop you have to use cookware that has magnetic attraction for the hob to work; a quick test to see if the cookware magnetically sticks to the plate will determine this. If however it does not, then you would need to invest in a new cookware set that does. When the cookware is being used and is pulled away off the induction plate, the field is disrupted and the plate powers off.

The drawbacks are that the Induction Cooktop uses an electromagnetic current that may disrupt the rhythms of a pacemaker if the proximity between them was too close, which would pose a great health risk for those with pacemakers; probably best not to have or use an Induction cooktop if you have pacemaker.

With the exception of the Pacemaker, it’s safe to say yes, you should have an induction cooktop to save time and energy; if you have kids who like to touch things they shouldn’t, god forbid the hot plate,then they won’t burn their hands if they do decide to touch the plate after cooking.
