More and more households are being disconnected from gas. This also means that, slowly but surely, everyone is switching to electric cooking. So an electric hob is becoming increasingly popular. However, there are many different choices when it comes to electric cooking, so making a choice is not easy.
More and more households are being cut off from gas. That also means everyone is slowly but surely switching to electric cooking. So an electric cooktop is becoming increasingly popular. However, there are many different choices when it comes to electric cooking so making this choice is not easy. All the different ways are briefly explained below:
Connecting an electric cooktop
This way of cooking is easy to operate and easy to keep clean, however, it is offset by the fact that these plates have a very high power grease consumption. It also takes a while for the plate to heat up and it also stays hot for a very long time after cooking.
Connecting a ceramic cooktop
The only advantage to this cooktop is that it is easy to keep clean. It takes a long time to heat up and it stays hot for a long time, in addition, this way of cooking also costs a lot of electricity. Another disadvantage is that hot liquids coming from cooking can burn into the glass, damaging it. Partly for these reasons, this way of cooking is not often used.
Halogen cooktop connection
In purchase, this is the cheapest option of the four, however, they also break down relatively often due to wear and tear. The ease of use is less than a gas cooktop, but then again more than ceramic cooking. The plate gets hottest of all the plates so that can be an advantage, but again poses a danger.
Connecting induction cooktop
This is the most common way of cooking because of its many advantages. It heats up quickly and cools down quickly, in addition it uses 20% less electricity than the other options. The only disadvantages associated with it have to do with the pans. Not all pans are suitable for this way of cooking because this way of cooking works on magnetism.

Type of phases for the cooktop
When a cooktop is connected it needs to come on a special connection namely: 1 phase, 2 phase or 3 phase connection. Of these, the 1 phase connection is the least used. The other two options are the most popular. The difference in this is in the power supply. For a 2 phase connection, no special power cable needs to be laid, for a 3 phase connection this is necessary. This is because a 3-phase connection works with power current and therefore has a special plug called a perilex plug. For this plug a separate cable must be drawn from the meter box to ensure that this connection always receives sufficient power without the group shutting down.
