What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Cooktops that integrate into bench spaceInduction cooktops appear as thin glass panels that sit just 10 millimetres above a bench top. This ingenious design makes them simple to clean, because unlike gas stoves or dated coil elements, there are no gaps that catch food scraps and they won’t rust. Win-win.Also, as induction cooktops are seamless and crafted from a single sheet, they are safer around children as the glass surface doesn’t get as hot as ceramic or gas cooktops. Induction cooking may also cost you more than traditional alternatives, but think of the joy in cleaning it easily, the sleek lines, and the extra bench space you will gain.Tip: If you buy an induction cooktop you may need to replace your pots and pans as glass, aluminium and copper are not suitable and only flat-bottom pots work efficiently.
