Cooking with the blue flames of a gas cooktop has an irresistible charm. In fact, beyond the fact that professional kitchens do indeed have gas cooktops, there’s no doubt that they offer the home chef something that ceramic glass and induction cooktops cannot: control of the fire.
From Prometheus on, the human fascination with fire and the mastery of the same are undeniable. This is why a cooktop like the Gas Cooktop 30” Stainless Steel SGSX305TS by Thermador has so many fans.
Why? First, because this is an energy-efficient cooktop. So if you love to cook, you won’t have to worry about an increase in the electricity bill due to the constant use of the appliance.
No one can deny that cooking on a gas cooktop is faster and more precise than cooking on an induction cooktop. While the latter has its advantages, and we don’t deny them, you will never be able to control the fire or heat levels as a gas cooktop allows you to do. And this is extremely important, especially if you love to try recipes and emulate TV chefs.
Also, you won’t have to get rid of that cauldron that your grandmother lovingly gave you, where you prepare amazing eggs. All pans and pots of this type are welcome.
And when it comes to design, Thermador made sure to offer you not only a high technology and power gas appliance but also a cooktop with simple lines and durable materials that will fit into any kitchen style. Do you understand now why it has so many fans?
