Now We’re Cooking with Magnets | Making the Switch to Induction Cooking

Unlike gas and electric cooktops, which use an open flame or heating element, induction cooking uses electromagnetic energy to heat pots and pans directly. Induction cooking uses less carbon and is safer and faster than either gas or electric.

Make the switch today and experience the following benefits:


Using an induction stove instead of gas cuts your cooking carbon emissions in half.

Health & Safety

Induction stoves eliminate toxic emissions that come from gas, and that increase the risk of childhood asthma by 45%.


Induction cooktops are about three times more efficient than gas. Additionally, some utilities offer incentives.

Other reasons you’ll love induction cooking:

Cook Time

Cook time: Induction stoves take half the time of gas to bring water to a boil.
