When it's time to upgrade your kitchen’s cooktop, you have a few different options. One of the best and most preferred is a gas cooktop. Whether you are a professional whose job depends on exact temperatures when cooking, or a hobby cook who wants to make great meals, a gas cooktop may be the right product for you. With newer technologies and even more convenient add-ons, gas cooktops are one of the best choices for a new appliance in your kitchen.
Gas cooktops come in various sizes to accommodate all of your cooking needs. If you have a large kitchen, you may want to consider a six burner model so that you can keep all of the meal components cooking and ready at the same time. People who like to entertain or have dinner parties may need something that has a higher capacity for cooking. Whereas if you are only cooking for yourself, a smaller, two burner model may be sufficient.
Why People Love Cooking With Gas
If you were to survey cooks, either professional or amateur, you would probably find that most would choose gas over electric. One big reason people prefer gas is that it’s easier to get a more exact cooking temperature. When you're trying to cook sauces, vegetables, meats, soups or even breakfast, nothing beats the precise cooking temperature that comes from a gas flame. With some electric models, you can get an uneven heating space causing your pan to heat unevenly. Additionally, it is much easier to adjust the level of heat from a gas flame than the heat on an electric stove.
When you're trying to save money on your energy costs, a gas stove can help because it uses a very small of electricity or none at all. While some models require a little electricity to ignite the stove, others are able to light without electricity. The main source of energy for gas stoves comes from a pipeline of natural gas that is fed directly into your appliance. With the price of natural gas being competitive, gas cooking can be a cost-effective way to prepare all of your meals.
Another benefit to using gas cooktops is that they cool down faster than electric or induction models. When you're trying to ensure that your kitchen is safe for the youngest members of your family, it's much easier when you don't have to wait hours for your stovetop to be safe to touch.
Lastly, a gas cooktop is often more convenient to take apart and thoroughly clean. It's easy to remove the burner and wipe the surface of your gas cooktop with a mild cleanser or soap. The buildup from constant use can be easily cleared away to avoid possible dangers from residue catching on fire. Other types of cooktops may be a lot more difficult to clean and require specific tools or cleansers to avoid scratching an electric or induction cooktop.
Customize Your Kitchen’s Cooking Space
It's a good idea to carefully browse all of the different options if you decide to go with a gas range. You can pick a design and color that matches the look of your kitchen. You can also be confident that you're getting a top-quality method of cooking your favorite recipes. All of the cooks in your family and all of the diners may enjoy family dinners a little bit more. With a quality gas cooktop, cooking becomes fun again and much more efficient.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
