The vitroceramic cooktop

Vitroceramic cooktops are very popular today. This is due to their very affordable price. They are also very easy to clean. And the last but not least of its advantages is that, contrary to an induction hob, you can use any pan or pot on a vitroceramic cooktop.

However, compared to induction hobs, vitroceramic cooktops have some disadvantages. They usually consume more energy. They are also less safe than induction hobs. Finally, they are slower in terms of temperature build-up.

The induction hob

Induction hobs have four main advantages. The first one is that they are very cost efficient. They are also safer than vitroceramic cooktops. When you remove the pot or the pan from the hob, it instantly stops heating, avoiding any risk of forgetting to turn it off or getting burnt. Then induction hobs are also quicker in terms of temperature build-up. And finally, they are easy to clean.

On the other hand, note that induction hobs are usually more expansive to buy than vitroceramic cooktops. Furthermore, they require the purchase of induction compatible cookware.
