Power Rate of the Cooktop
The first point that you need to consider when looking for an induction cooktop is the power rate. A higher power rate ensures faster cooking, though it may also cost more. Most of the induction cooktops rate between 1000-2000W. So, if you need something that helps you cook faster, you need to opt for an induction cooktop with a higher power rate.
For the convenience of the users, some of the latest induction cooktops come with a pre-set menu. Depending on the dish that you cook, the pre-set menu adjusts the temperature of the appliance. So, whether you are boiling milk, making rice, roti and frying vegetables, the induction cooktop adjusts the temperature accordingly so that you get perfectly cooked dishes with a single touch.
This is another important factor to consider when looking for an induction cooktop. Modern induction cooktops such as the one from KENT comes with an auto-pan detection feature, which ensures heating is turned-off as soon as you remove the cookware from the cooktop. In addition, if you forget to switch off the appliance, the cooktop will automatically switch off if the pan is too hot.
Pan Size of the Cooktop
Every induction cooktop comes with a minimum and maximum pan size. If the cookware is smaller than the supported pan size, the cooktop will not detect the pan and won’t start heating the pot. The size of the cookware needs to match the coil size of the induction cooktop for maximum efficiency.
Portability of the Cooktop
Depending on the preference of the users, they can choose from portable or fixed cooktops. A portable induction cooktop makes it convenient for the user to take the appliance anywhere they want. Whether you are planning to cook on your rooftop or backyard, a portable cooktop makes it easy to carry the appliance anywhere.
