Here’s my old gas cooktop. Probably about 13 years old (the age of our home). Replacing it was thrilling especially as I have this unnatural fear of gas. Some of my burners would become unlit during cleaning…. and for me relighting them was NOT an option. Too terrifying for me. Really. So I generally only had 2 workable burners for the last few years – one front and one back which often made cooking complicated.
I love the sleek look of the glass ceramic cooktop and the modern feel it gives my kitchen. Two of the burners are regular electric burners but two of them are induction – which means you use magnetic cookware and the cookware heats up for the most part as compared to the cooktop.
