96 750x600 1 2

If you’re trying to decide between an induction cooktop, electric cooktop or gas cooktop, we understand that the choice can be overwhelming. On the one hand, you have to decide on your budget and space allowances. O the other, you have to think about the features you’re looking for and the design.

To help you make a better-informed buying decision, we put together this practical guide on electric cooktops.

How to Decide on an Electric Cooktop

Although gas might be the industry standard for cooktops, electric cooktops have been gaining traction in recent years.


  • Saves money. Unlike gas cooktops that might require installing a gas line, electric stoves can be more easily installed. Especially if you’re doing a kitchen remodelling, this aspect could save you a lot of money.
  • Easier to keep it clean. A stove is one of the hardest parts of the kitchen to keep looking clean. But electric stoves require much less maintenance and cleaning time.
  • Food cooks more evenly. Electric stoves are great for heating all sides of the pan equally. Even heating prevents one side of the food from cooking faster than the other.
  • Consumes less energy. If you are environmentally conscious, an electric stove might be a better choice for you. Electric cooktops don’t use as much energy as gas which can also lower your utility bill.


  • Takes longer to heat up. One of the downsides of using an electric stove is that it requires more patience. With gas, you have instant heat, but an electric stove will take a few minutes to get to high heat.
  • More fragile. People will have to use a little bit more caution when they have an electric stove. If something is dropped on it, it could crack the ceramic glass of the cooktop.
