Love at first sight! So clean, so sparkling, with its digital buttons that turn on, without the risk of oil catching alight and burning our eyebrows… but… all said and done, the ceramic hob consumes more than a gas cooker. The bill could even increase by up to three times in a home environment where the family eats at home every day.
It is not a question of returning to 40 years ago and remodelling the kitchen of the newly built house in which you live. It is necessary to work at it day by day in order to minimize the difference. The IDAE (Institute for Energy Diversification and Savings) recommends, wherever there is an electric cooker, using pots and pans with diffuser bases. This enables a more homogeneous temperature to be achieved all over the base of the pan and so reducing expenditure. They are more expensive at the time of installation, but induction hobs heat twice as fast and reduce electricity bills by 20%. Instead of heating with the help of resistance, they do so through a bovine that generates an electromagnetic field.
