You’ll have to consider fuel for your cooktop; do you want to cook with a gas range top or electric? A gas stove top will give you precise heat control and consistent temperature. Electric stove tops heat up fast and perform well at low temps and at a simmer. Electric cooktops and glass stovetops have a smooth surface so cleaning is easy.
Also think about where you cooktop will fit in your kitchen, remember you’ll have to vent all the cooking odors and smoke, so ventilation is important. Unless you go for a downdraft cooktop, which integrates a ventilation system into the stove top, so you don’t need a separate hood.
Tech-savvy induction cooktops are effective countertop stoves. Induction stove tops feature a fast-heating energy-efficient range top which uses electricity and magnetic coils to quickly bring heat directly to the pan, leaving the remaining surface cool to the touch. These cooktops are safe because they don't use flames or direct heat.
