Different Types of Cooktops:
Following are described different types of cooktops which is one of the most important kitchen appliances today:
Induction cooktop is the most modern cooktop available in the market that uses magnetic induction to cook food much like conventional microwave ovens. There is no physical flames of fire on this cooktop so no one can burn out. It is also quite energy efficient and can boil a pot of water in just 1 minute. The quality and style is amazing but it is much more expensive.
Electric cooktops are less expensive than the induction cooktops but the quality is also lower. The glass surface of the cooktop is easily scratch able and immediate cleansers and clean-up is required if it gets filthy because of food spill outs. You also need to use cookware having flat bottoms on this cooktop.
This cooktop is fixed in the countertop and the controls are fixed in the cutout of the countertops. The gas cooktops are available in sealed burners style as well as in conventional burners style. It is important to investigate properly about which one suits your house the best as sealed burners gets very hot and it may affect your upper cabinetry but they are much easier to clean.
