Induction, electric or gas? Choose the right cooking style to fit your life.
When it comes to the kitchen, everyone has their own style—right down to the cooktop they prefer. Whether you’re looking for state-of-the-art induction, straightforward electric of classic gas, Whirlpool Canada brands have a variety of cooktop options for every home chef.
Induction technology generates heat directly into magnetic cookware, making the cookware your heat source as opposed to a burner or element. This provides precise, responsive heating and cooling similar to a gas cooktop, but with a smooth ceramic-glass surface that allows for effortless cleanup. Induction cooktops are also very family-friendly and safe. Because heat is transferred directly into the cookware, your cooktop is cool to the touch once the cookware is removed. Just remember: you must have magnetic cookware in order for the induction process to work. Test your own cookware by holding a magnet to the bottom.
The Jenn-Air Induction Cooktop has the industry’s most powerful induction element. The 9-12” dual zone element has a maximum output of 5,000 watts, and is perfect for high-temperature techniques like flash frying or quick searing.
Built to cook everything from dinner for two to large family feasts, the industry-leading 6.2 cu. ft. capacity freestanding Maytag induction range has the space to get it all done—and the power to do it fast. Preheat your oven in just eight minutes with the Power Preheat feature, which is perfect for rushed mealtimes. Plus, you can have peace of mind knowing your Maytag induction range is protected by a 10-year limited parts warranty.
Electric cooktop surfaces offer an energy-efficient element design on a smooth ceramic-glass surface that allows for easy cleanup. Most electric cooktops feature at least one triple and/or double-ring element, allowing cooks the versatility to select the appropriate element based on cookware size. Electric cooktops will work will all types of cookware, and are also safer than gas because there is no open flame.
The KitchenAid® 36-inch Electric Cooktop features innovative Even-Heat™ Technology. Each element is designed to deliver heat evenly to avoid hot and cool spots and provide exceptional simmering and melting. You’ll enjoy precise and responsive heat control comparable to cooking with gas, combined with impeccable style including touch-activated electronic controls that create a sleek accent to the premium surface.
Gas cooktops are still the preferred cooking method for professional chefs, since they provide very responsive and accurate heat control. Easily accomplish any task – from melting and simmering to stir-frying and sautéing – with a gas cooktop. Move cookware between burners (gas cooktops have the option of four or five burners) effortlessly on full-width cast-iron grates, and choose your perfect burner temperature with a variety of heat outputs.
The KitchenAid® Gas Range features a stainless steel cooktop 18,000 BTU Ultra Power™ burner to give you the power and precision to cook a variety of your favourite foods to perfection. The dual fuel range means the cooktop surface is gas and the oven is true convection. This range also features a warming drawer that includes a slow cook function, which performs like a crock pot without taking up valuable counter space.
Whether you're cooking snacks or multiple courses for a special gathering, this Maytag double oven gas range uses 6.0 cu. ft. to cook several items at the same time. The Power Centre cooktop features a 16,000 BTU Speed Heat™ burner and high-heat capabilities for perfect cooking every time. And to keep traditions going for years to come, a 10-year limited parts warranty on the burners and cast-iron grates comes standard.
Appliance options: Cooktops, ranges or slide-ins?
There’s more to kitchen appliances than just choosing between gas, electric and induction.
Cooktops offer the versatility of placing your cooktop surface anywhere in your kitchen and separating it from the oven. This is best for large kitchens, as they are ideal in islands complimented with a built-in wall oven.
Ranges and Slide-ins offer simple installation and countless options when it comes to features, size and capacity. They are designed to fit effortlessly anywhere in your kitchen, making it a great choice for most lifestyles.
