Induction Cooktops:

Why I Ditched Gas

A recent study found that 75 percent of oven emissions occur when the stove is off. In other words, gas stoves old and new are constantly emitting methane. Methane is the main component in natural gas and more than 40 million homes cook with gas stoves in the United States. This has a climate impact comparable to adding half a million gas-powered cars to the roads.

Are Induction Cooktops Worth It?

Yes, induction cooktops are worth it because gas (methane) stoves insufficiently heat the surrounding air. With an induction cooktop, the size of the pot doesn't matter. That means extra efficiency which translates into they heat your pots and pans in no time and cook your food faster. 

Are Gas Stoves Bad For You?

Natural gas stoves (aka methane stoves) release nitrogen dioxide when the stove is lit, which is a toxic byproduct. While increasing airflow by using a range hood can help reduce the health risks of this, most people don’t use ventilation systems.

Nope, induction cooktop do not use more electricity than their gas stove counterparts. In fact, it’s far more energy-efficient than gas or even electric cooktops. With induction cooking, 85-90% of the heat energy generated is used for cooking.

Do Induction Cooktops Use More Electricity?

Induction cookers aren’t the quietest form of cooking, but they’re not the loudest either. The induction cooker came in at about 61 to 62 whereas the hood’s fan was 64. The decibel scale is logarithmic, which means the increase in sound intensity grows exponentially.
