Cooktops Benefits

Cooktops are a versatile and increasingly popular kitchen appliance, offering flexibility and style to any cooking space. Unlike traditional ranges, cooktops are installed directly into the countertop, providing a seamless and streamlined look that appeals to modern design sensibilities. This installation style also frees up under-counter space for storage or aesthetic purposes. Cooktops come in various types, including gas, electric, and induction, each offering unique benefits to suit different cooking preferences and styles. Gas cooktops provide quick and precise temperature control, electric cooktops offer even heating and ease of cleaning, and induction cooktops excel in energy efficiency and safety.


Flexibility in design is another key advantage of cooktops. They are available in a range of sizes and burner configurations, allowing for customization based on cooking needs and kitchen layout. High-end models may include features such as specialized burners for wok cooking, integrated griddles, or touch controls for a sleek, button-free surface. The variety in styles, from stainless steel to glass-ceramic, allows cooktops to fit into any kitchen décor, from classic to contemporary. Their ease of cleaning, particularly in models with smooth surfaces, makes them a practical choice for busy households.

Bringing Your Cooktop Home

Selecting the right cooktop involves considering your cooking habits, kitchen design, and preferred energy source. Measure your countertop space to determine the appropriate size and layout for the cooktop. Think about the type of cooking you do most often and select a model with the features that will best accommodate your needs, such as extra burners, specific burner types, or advanced temperature controls. Also, consider the aesthetic appeal of the cooktop and how it will integrate into your kitchen’s design.


Installation of a cooktop is a task that should be undertaken by professionals, especially as it may involve adjustments to your countertop and connections to gas or electrical systems. Coast Appliances offers expert installation services to ensure your new cooktop is installed safely and efficiently. Professional installation guarantees that your cooktop is set up correctly, adhering to safety standards and optimizing its performance. Once installed, regular maintenance is key. Keeping the cooktop clean and ensuring all connections (gas or electrical) are secure will prolong the life of your appliance and ensure it remains a reliable and efficient part of your kitchen.

Cooktops FAQ

Cooktops fall into three categories. Gas cooktops use propane or natural gas to create a flame. Electric cooktops have a metal coil heated by electricity, usually sealed under a sheet of glass for easier cleanup. Induction cooktops look like electrics, but instead of a hot coil, they use a magnetic field to heat the cookware itself rather than the cooktop. Keep in mind that induction cooktops require induction cookware.

Cooktops are measured as a square: width and depth. Unlike a TV or computer screen that is measured on the diagonal, cooktops are measured straight across. Two standard widths are 30" and 36", but many others are available.

Since every cooktop requires hooking up either electricity or gas lines - or both - installing one is a job best left to licensed professionals. Expert installation services from Coast Appliances mean you never have to worry about installing a cooktop yourself.

A stove is simply an appliance for cooking or heating, including everything from a pellet stove to a gas oven. A kitchen "stove" is often used interchangeably with "range,” which is a combination cooktop and oven, while a cooktop comes as its own unit without an oven.
