Induction cooktops provide near-instant heating, making them faster and more efficient than conventional electric or gas stoves. Also, because there are no flames, induction cooking reduces the chance of accidents in the kitchen. Additionally, this cooktop will not produce heat unless a metal pot or pan is placed on the element, which again increases safety. The Westinghouse WHI644BA cooktop's surface is made up of a single smooth piece of easy to clean ceramic glass, with four cooking zones available in different sizes to suit a variety of dishes. If you’re looking for a stylish cooktop, that is fast and reliable, but also safe to use and easy to operate, look no further than this induction cooktop by Westinghouse.
