The cooktops provide a number of benefits, Fisher Knott notes. Foremost is safety, especially in homes with children, since there is no heat on the cooking surface, only in the pan. Energy consumption can be cut by 10 percent to 20 percent by using an induction cooktop rather than a more conventional type of stove, again since only the pan is heated, according to a study by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy.
Always read the fine print and forget about those super-hot commercial ranges — that's the advice of restaurant equipment suppliers for consumers who want to save money on pro chef-quality kitchen gear by ordering online. While purchasing true restaurant equipment at a discount price may sound like an easy choice, you actually need to be more careful about what you buy.
While I don't cook very often, one of my favorite items to leave out on my counter is a beautiful teak cutting board. In fact, when I need a cutting board for dinner prep, I tend to grab a not-as-pretty, but easy-to-clean board and keep the teak board out mostly for decoration.
There are only two drawbacks to consider. The first is pricing, which tends to run approximately 20 percent higher than more conventional stoves, she estimates. But she has found that for most clients, especially in the mid- to upper-end kitchens, that incremental addition isn’t a deal-breaker. "Most clients are looking to upgrade their kitchens when they remodel, and they are looking for better performance rather than the cheapest price. I've never found induction cooktops to be a hard sell when they see what they provide."
The other drawback is that only magnetic (i.e., steel) cookware can be used. The steel content of the cookware can be tested by taking a small magnet to the store. But, Fisher Knott says, clients don't bat an eye at this limitation, either. "Today, cooking has become an important part of the social activities of the home, and good cookware is part of that. Often, buying new cookware is part of the kitchen remodel anyway. We explain that the cooktop and cookware are part of a complete cooking system, so they plan on that."
Counter space is truly precious in a tiny kitchen. This means that a compact cube microwave is a perfect choice when you don’t have a lot of room. If you don’t have any space on your counter, consider putting your microwave on top of your fridge or even on a separate cart in your kitchen.
Another overlooked fact: consider your home's resale value. If you're going to the expense of including high-end grills, surfaces and appliances outside, don't neglect complementary features such as sinks or dishwashers, task lighting (if only for safety) and dimmers, ceiling fans and awnings to keep the sun and heat at bay. And don't forget to include comfortable seating.
