Torn between a ceramic, gas or induction cooktop range?

Read on...
Once we had limited choices in kitchen ranges. But those days are gone. Today three types of stoves – ceramic, induction and gas – are on the market. Each kind of stove offers a different way of heating food and different design features, and each option has its own advantages.

Kitchen ranges with a ceramic cooktop


Ceramic cooktops are reasonably priced and don’t require you to change anything in your home. This has made them the most frequently sold cooktops. Since slide-in ranges often have this type of top, as well being less expensive they are also aesthetically pleasing.

Compared to the old electric ranges, they are more powerful and responsive and upkeep is simpler.
To keep the top looking shiny and new, take the time to find out how to care for your appliance. Although ceramic cooktops are easier to clean than their predecessors, they do require a special cleaner and scraper.

Why go with gas?


Gas ranges just by their looks stand out and fascinate. Models made by brands like Bertazzoni wind up being the jewel of any kitchen they are installed in. They never go unnoticed, with their Ferrari inspired colours, finish and sophisticated details. With this type of gas range, you’re not just getting good looks but an appliance that will really play a part in your meal preparations.
It’s like being at the wheel of a luxury car. You’re the one who is in control. A gas stove puts you in the shoes of a real chef..

Gas elements are more stable and easy to use than they were even just a few years ago. People love gas elements because when you want to rapidly change your cooking temperature, you can see what you’re doing. A gas stove will perform on command: the oven gets to the right temperature in the blink of an eye.

So why do some people prefer induction stoves?


With induction, heat is transmitted directly to your cookware, leaving the surrounding surface cool. So, if your children are close by while you are working at the stove, you don’t have to worry that they’ll get burned when you ask them to come over to give you a hand or taste something you’re making.
Fulgor Milano’s Sofia line is particularly appealing to those who want to equip their kitchens with a powerful, generously sized pro with a sleek, modern look. Designed, developed and made in Italy to surpass all expectations when it comes to quality, performance and aesthetics, this line is bound to enchant your inner chef with traditional and innovative features.

Along with the precision that a Fulgor Milano provides, people also appreciate how easy it is to clean its cooktop. Just run a cloth over its smooth surface after you’ve finished cooking.

You’ll be in your element with an induction cooktop


Induction elements provide an electric cooking surface. In terms of energy consumption, this option is very economical because it limits heat loss.

The most modern and increasingly prized option, induction cooking allows you to select cooking temperatures precisely. It’s a good choice if your kitchen only has access to electricity and you’re looking for an excellent cooking experience. However, you do need to take into consideration that induction requires a minimum of 40 amps (depending on the model).

Nevertheless, induction cooktops can be less advantageous in certain ways for some people. On the one hand, besides the fact that you have to use specific kinds of cookware with them, their higher price might dissuade some. However, that additional cost could be more than worth it if you are looking for a high performance, elegant and easy to clean appliance.

At the end of the day, between ceramic, gas or induction cooktop ranges there is no single winner. It all depends on your set up at home, what you want to do with your appliance, your taste and your budget.
