1. Do you need something that is easy?
Let’s be honest, some cooktops are made simpler than others.
2. Do you consider yourself a perfectionist and require more control and precision in your cooking?
Cooking can be more than just making a meal – to some it is even considered an art form. So, if you are someone who rigorously pays attention to the details and likes to meticulously create the perfect dinner, having a cooktop that gives you the precise control is ideal. Gas cooktops are known to be a favorite among professional chefs for this very reason, so if you’re searching for a cooktop that can handle your scrupulous style, go with what that pros like!

And because little hands sometimes make their way to the cooktop, the last thing you want is a child to touch a hot burner while you were looking away for a split second.
