Looking for a versatile cooking appliance to enhance your countertop? Howard's offers a wide selection of cooktops and rangetops, including top-selling models from Bosch, Whirlpool, Frigidaire, and KitchenAid. Begin your shopping journey by exploring the various options available for these stovetop appliances.
Before making your selection, it's crucial to consider the type of heat source that suits your preferences and kitchen setup. Cooktops and rangetops support three heat sources: gas, electric, and induction. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Gas provides instant temperature control and is compatible with various cookware. Electric options include coil burners and ceramic glass tops, with the latter being the more popular choice. Ceramic glass electric surfaces are resistant to cracks, easy to clean, and accommodate flat-bottom pans. Induction heating shares most of the advantages of ceramic glass electric surfaces, but it requires the use of magnetic-flat bottom pans.
Regardless of your choice it's crucial to consider proper exhaust and ventilation. During cooking, steam, smoke, residue, and grease are released, and it's essential to eliminate these substances from the air for a clean kitchen environment and the cook's well-being. Take a look at our downdraft exhaust systems and range hoods to learn more about the filtration requirements for your chosen cooktop or rangetop.
