While small induction stoves are ideal due to the fact that they are efficient and highly portable, larger models are required in some cases. There are several manufacturers who are constantly working to develop large induction cooktops that can essentially replace a traditional gas range, while also adding various quality of life features that are only possible with electric models.


Even though these appliances are less portable than their one-element counterparts, they are in no way extra large induction cooktops. However, they do offer enough cooking space to prepare food for the entire family without having to only cook one-pan dishes. Furthermore, the prices of these appliances are not larger than those of gas ranges, in spite of their added features.

Conclusion

These large portable induction cooktops enable the owner to cook larger quantities of food at the same time, without having to swap pans every 30 minutes. Furthermore, unlike gas models, they come with the ability to accurately set the temperature required for different cooking processes, basically taking a lot of the guesswork out of cooking new types of food.


Keep in mind that induction cooktops do not work with non-metallic cookware, so you will be unable to prepare food using glass or ceramic containers. Furthermore, remember that unlike gas cooktops, these heat the pan directly, which means that metallic handles will also get how after a while.
