COOKTOPS

What style suits you?

Modern cooktops come in a wide range of styles, sizes and fuels. Careful thought is required before you buy to ensure you get a product that will give you many years of happy cooking.
 
So, which one is going to be the right one for you?
Below you will find some pros and cons for the three most popular styles available on the market. I hope this page helps, for more detail, feel free to drop into our store and have a chat with one of our friendly staff.
cooktop induction
Induction cooktops work by using a magnetic coil that reacts with magnetic elements in the pan. This means the pan essentially heats itself. This effect can be seen in the image below with the chocolate.
+ Super efficient and rapid, will boil water faster than any other style of cooktop on the market
+ Cooktop only receives residual heat from the pan, so burns on induction hotplates are very rare
+ Easy to clean, spills won't bake on
+ Vast range of size and style options available

– Pots must be magnetic (if in doubt, put a fridge magnet on the back of the pan, if it sticks the pan will work with induction)
– Can be expensive
– Even though induction cooktops are the most energy efficient variety available, they often need a higher voltage. This can lead to unexpected installation costs.
– If your pan is not completely flat, it may get "hot spots"

gas cooktop
+ Gas is very fast fuel that is immediately responsive to temperature changes
+ Gas cooktops are not fussy with pots
+ Relatively inexpensive fuel source
+ Vast range of size and style options available
 
– Harder to clean than other cooktops on the market
– Higher fire risk due to naked flame
– Gas cooktop trivets can retain a lot of heat with no visual indication
Also, look for units with "flame safe" that shut the gas off if the flame goes out
gas cooktop
ceramic cooktop
+ Large range of size and style options to choose from
+ Cost effective
+ Easy to clean
+ Ceramic cooktops are not fussy with pots
 
– Take longer to heat up and cool down than other types of cooktops
– Can be dangerous, heat zones will stay hot after use with very little notification
– If your pan is not completely flat, it may get "hot spots"
