How much energy does an induction cooktop use?
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.
