Gas Cooktops

However, it gives you more control over the heat and can heat up faster. Gas cooktops can be used even when there is no electricity. However, there are some hazards you need to be careful of when operating a gas cooktop.

Induction Cooktops

It transmits heat directly from the surface to the pan, meaning that there is much less heat loss. Some designers add visual cues so you can tell if it’s on or off. One downside to induction cooktops is that you might have to buy new cookware that is more suitable for induction cooktop cooking.
