If you’re someone who likes to cook, then a lot of thought needs to go into the type of stove that you want to purchase if you need something new. There are many different types of ovens these days, and you can choose between gas and electric for the power source. There are also different types of cooktops that you can select from. There are pros and cons to each of these options. Only you can decide what will end up being the best selection. Let’s take a closer look.

The Level of Heat You Need

If you choose from an induction stove top, you can get extremely quick heat provided at high levels. This is great for people who are often in a hurry and don’t want to wait for their stovetop to heat up. The induction top is usually the flat style that does not come with burners. There are also options that provide you with different levels of heat on different burners. Many stovetops come with a single warming burner or a single express burner that will heat up faster than the others. 

Easy to Clean

Dirty burners are not only unsightly, but they can also cause damage to the appliance. If you’re a messy cook, this factor should greatly affect the type of stovetop that you choose. A gas stove is easy to cook on, but it can be difficult to clean under those burners. The same goes for an electric stovetop with coil burners. A flat top is relatively easy to clean. Just make sure that you have the right products on hand if you have a spill here and there. Don’t use anything abrasive that could damage the delicate finish.

Cookware Type

You probably already have a set of cookware that you like cooking with. Some people prefer stainless steel, others like copper and cast iron is also very popular. The problem is, many of these cookware options are not recommended for certain types of stovetops. If you like to use cast iron, this is often recommended for gas stovetops. Cast iron is also heavy to hold. A stainless-steel variety works with flat stovetops and induction tops.

Unless you are looking to invest in a new set of cookware, you’ll want to make sure your current pots and pans will work with your cooktop.
