How much energy does an induction cooktop use?

0 234

Induction cooktops are becoming a new standard in modern-day kitchens.

The manufacturers claim that induction cookers combine the best features of the conventional ones: they regulate the heat level as effectively as gas stoves and have the power of electric cookers. What about their energy consumption, though?

The math is plain: induction cooktops use more energy than the other types of stoves, up to 7.5 kWh depending on how many of the rings you use at a time. However, they are far more eco-friendly with their 90% efficiency. In other words, they convert 90% of the energy that they consume into heat. For example, using 2.8 kW, they deliver 2.52 kW of heat.

The byproducts of gas combustion (carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide) are harmful for both animals (especially some species of birds) and humans. If you have a gas stove, make sure that your kitchen is well-ventilated.
