Induction Cooktops Benefits

Induction cooktops have revolutionized kitchen technology with their efficiency and cooking precision. These cooktops use electromagnetic fields to directly heat the cookware, providing rapid heating and precise temperature control. This method of heating allows for quicker boiling and controlled simmering, significantly reducing overall cooking time. An additional safety feature is the cooktop’s surface, which remains cool to the touch since heat is generated directly in the cookware, minimizing burn risks.


A key advantage of induction cooktops is their energy efficiency. They directly transfer energy to the cookware, making them more efficient than traditional electric or gas cooktops by reducing heat loss. This efficiency not only saves energy but also keeps the kitchen cooler. The flat, smooth surface of induction cooktops contributes to a contemporary aesthetic and makes cleaning effortless – spills and splatters can simply be wiped away.

Bringing Your Induction Cooktop Home

When choosing an induction cooktop, assess your cooking requirements and kitchen space. Ensure to measure your countertop area accurately for a perfect fit and decide on the necessary number of cooking zones. Note that induction cooktops require cookware with magnetic properties, such as cast iron or certain stainless steels. The cookware should have a flat bottom and contain iron to work with the induction technology.


We recommend professional installation for induction cooktops due to their specific electrical needs. Coast Appliances provides expert installation services to guarantee safe and accurate setup, which is essential for the appliance’s functionality and safety. Routine surface cleaning and using compatible cookware are important for maintenance. Testing cookware for compatibility (e.g., checking if a magnet sticks to the bottom) ensures peak performance. Regular upkeep and the right cookware will maintain your induction cooktop's efficiency and prolong its lifespan.

Induction Cooktops FAQ

Induction cooktops work by heating pots and pans, not the cooktop itself, so less heat is wasted in the air and pots heat up faster than with other kinds of cooktops. Induction heat is also precise, and when the temperature is adjusted the effect is almost immediate.

Induction cooktops do not use more electricity than other burners. In fact, since induction cooktops lose very little heat to the air they are some of the most energy-efficient cooktops available.

It’s important to remember that induction cooktops don’t get hot; they heat the pans. With that in mind, induction can generate hotter temperatures in a pan than gas.

Popular brands of induction cooktops include Jennair, Bosch, Thermador and Fisher Paykel, but at Coast Appliances you’ll find many more as well.
