A big decision for homeowners today is choosing between a gas or induction cooktop. For both professional and at-home chefs alike, the choice of a cooktop often comes with a lot of back-and-forth. The good news? Here at The Melrose Collection, The Ainsley’s residences are built with induction, while The Addison’s townhomes feature gas cooktops.
If you’re torn between the two different types of cooktops, take a look at our helpful breakdown, below.
Induction — Why You’ll Love It at The Ainsley
The residences at The Ainsley feature kitchens with Wolf’s ever-popular 36” professional induction range. With five induction zones, you can keep multiple items cooking simultaneously—ensuring your entire meal stays warm by the time it’s plated.
Offering speed, energy efficiency, and safety, an induction cooktop is often selected by those seeking a sleek look within a home. An induction cooktop is also very easy to clean because of its smooth, flat surface. For home chefs, induction makes a great choice thanks to its speed and heat efficiency created by electricity flowing through the coils below the ceramic glass surface.
Even better, Wolf’s 36” induction range allows you to transform two burners into one large burner by using a built-in bridge feature. Cookware-sensing burners deactivate when an induction-compatible pan is not in place, keeping safety a high priority in every kitchen at The Ainsley.
Gas — A Favorite at The Addison
On the other hand, residents at The Addison love using the Wolf 36” 5-burner gas cooktops. With Wolf’s cooktop at The Addison, you’ll be able to use the dual-stacked burners which go from high heat all the way down to a mere flicker of a flame. It’s easy to simmer and melt sauces, soups, and marinades with the lower tier of the dual-stacked burner. With the upper tier burner, you’ll get more rapid boils and hotter sears.
Since gas cooktops use a flame to heat food, it’s typically considered easier to control heat and adjust in real-time. A reliable cooking option, a gas cooktop looks aesthetically pleasing for those seeking more of an industrial feel with its cast-iron burner grates elevated over the countertop.
Plus, an extra feature of the Wolf 36” 5-burner gas cooktop is the spark ignition system, which reignites a flame automatically, ensuring safer cooking and maintaining temperature control. Whip up your next recipe in a snap using the Wolf gas cooktop at The Addison, all while enjoying a range of almost unheard of precision control.Warming up to one cooktop over another?
