I won’t argue that cooking with fire isn’t all kinds of fun, but when it comes to cooking in an indoor setting, like say… the kitchen, I’m a big fan of these new-fangled induction cooktops. Not only do they heat up pots and pans quicker than a conventional electrical element can, but the rest of the cooking surface stays cool to the touch which means you’re far less likely to get a nasty burn.
They’re also about a *million (*as guesstimated by me) times easier to clean up after a spill or boil-over, but even that could be a thing of the past thanks to Thermador’s Masterpiece Series induction cooktops. They come with a built-in anti-overflow system that prevents spills by automatically shutting off the induction coil and sounding an alarm if liquids are detected on the cooktop surface. Now technically the pot actually has to boil-over for the system to be triggered, so it doesn’t necessarily ‘prevent’ that from happening, but for cooks like me who like to start boiling a big pot of stuff and then watch a couple of movies or go to sleep for the night, it could make the inevitable cleanup a lot easier. Thanks Thermador!
