Induction cooktops use magnets to heat metal cookware directly. Induction cooking has several benefits over gas stoves:
- Fast: Induction cooktops can heat up three times faster than gas!
- Safe: No exposed heating element or open flame.
- Clean: No natural gas combustion which can release harmful air pollutants like carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and formaldehyde into your home. The American Medical Association and American Lung Association have recognized nitrogen dioxide as a significant health risk, especially for childhood asthma.
