The All-Electric Kitchen

Stovetop technology has come a long way to bring you a trifecta of precision, efficiency and safety.

The Kitchen of The Future, Now

Electric kitchens, powered exclusively by electricity, offer cleaner, safer, healthier, and more sustainable homes. Induction and electric stoves make your home safer for you and your family by avoiding combustion of methane gas (natural gas) and significantly reducing the air pollutants that are emitted as a result of cooking. Plus, electric appliances can be powered by 100% renewable energy, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels.

Electrified kitchens for renters

Compared to homeowners, renters face unique challenges when wanting to electrify since they often cannot swap their appliances nor make changes to the electrical in their homes. Electrifying your kitchen is possible with today’s high-powered, all-electric countertop appliances.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of them! Common kitchen appliances like cooktops, ovens, and ranges (cooktops & ovens together) are prime for electrification if they’re not electric already. Beyond these, other potential opportunities to electrify include gas/propane-fueled woks, indoor/outdoor grills, and countertop electric appliances.

That depends on what type of cookware you currently have. Anything magnetic can be used with induction. Therefore, if a magnet sticks, the pan will work. This includes many popular materials including stainless, blue, and carbon steel, cast iron, enamel or ceramic-coated iron. Some cookware will have the induction logo (see picture) signifying that it is compatible.

It depends on your current load and the capabilities of your panel. Upgrading from gas to electric may require upgrading your building’s service panel, wiring, or even increasing the amount of electricity coming from your utility to accommodate the increased electrical demand. Consult with a contractor or electrician to determine if you need to factor this into your electrification plan.

Electric appliances come in all shapes, sizes, and budgets. Traditional electric resistance ranges and cooktops used all across the world are oftentimes priced similarly or cheaper than their gas counterparts. Induction, which offers greater efficiency and performance, is often similar or more expensive upfront but rebates are available to help offset costs. These rebates can sometimes make induction the cheapest option.

Yes – getting a good sear/char with induction is easy, especially with cookware capable of achieving high heat like cast iron. Even better, because induction heats cookware immediately, you can access this power within seconds leading to a shorter overall cooking time.

Yes! Cooking in woks is possible on induction with flat-bottomed woks or on induction hobs that are curved to fit the shape of a standard wok pan. The high heat necessary in wok cooking is met easily on induction thanks to the power and quick response it delivers. Unlike gas woks, induction contributes less heat to the environment keeping your kitchen cooler.

A pacemaker is a small medical device implanted in the chest to help regulate irregular heartbeats by sending electrical signals to the heart. Research (1, 2) has shown that induction is safe to use for pacemakers, even at close distances, though many physicians still recommend exercising caution. Consult with your physician before using induction.
