The most exciting trend in appliances today is the proliferation of induction cooktops. At Comito Building and Design we are seeing a rise in this technology in our Colorado Springs custom homes. Once only available from high-end European manufacturers at unbelievable prices these incredible cooktops are now offered by more available brands like Whirlpool. What once used to cost $5000 is now available for $1200! Considering the unbelievable performance of these tops, especially here at altitude, even $5000 was a reasonable price to pay. An induction burner has much more power than the largest available gas burner – the more powerful induction tops, like theThermador, would be equivalent to a 60,000 btu gas burner – and it doesn’t lose any power the further it gets from sea level. A gas burner will lose 3-5% for every 1000 feet above sea level – by the time you get to Denver there is a noticeable difference in a gas cooktops performance. Since the induction surface doesn’t heat up like a standard electric cooktop or a gas burner operation is safer and clean-up is a snap.
