As far as frequently asked questions in my showroom go, Induction or Gas? is right at the top of the list.

The answer?

Induction – every time. Here, I’m going to explain why this is, and also give you my recommendation to the right choice of induction hob.

From my experience, 9/10 customers choose to go with an induction hob without any influence from a kitchen retailer at all, and without really understanding what makes them so unique.

Why? Because the first tick in the box is that they’re always aesthetically pleasing.

Throw in the fact that they cook faster and lose less heat in the process, making them more energy-efficient than gas or electric. What’s not to love?

But what is Induction Cooking?

Now for the nerdy science bit.

On the surface, induction hobs aren’t too dissimilar to other modern cooktops, but beneath the surface – they don’t have burners. Instead, they use electromagnetic energy to heat pots and pans directly.

This method of direct heat means that the surface of the hob remains cool; not only can you say goodbye to skin burns, but also burnt food.

They are super easy to clean, and can be wiped down seconds after removing your pan from the hob.

The same smart technology is what makes them extremely versatile, gentle enough to melt butter and chocolate but powerful enough to boil 16oz of water in 60 seconds!

My personal favourite is the Bora Glass Ceramic Induction Hob

Beautifully seamless in its design, with touch screen technology, the Bora induction hob is an injection of revolutionary style in any kitchen.

I’ve designed kitchens for many clients where we’ve added the Bora Induction Hob to the central island, and many of them say it’s been the main point of discussion of their dinner parties!

It’s such a versatile style of induction hob, and works in any kitchen design. Take a look at our projects for some inspiration.

What our customers say ...

  • review rating 5  We could not recommend Appleton Designer Kitchens enough, we loved working with Joanne who quickly understood exactly what we wanted from our space and designed the perfect kitchen for us. From start to finish it was a smooth process and Joanne was always on hand to answer any queries we had. The finished result is exactly as planned and we love it. Thank you Joanne.

  • review rating 5  We had a kitchen designed and fitted by Appleton Kitchens Ltd just before Christmas. Joanne was ace, providing different designs, suggesting colour schemes, working with the other trades that we had on site and being there almost every day to check that the installation and any snagging was completed to a high standard. Happy to recommend

    thumb derick barrett
  • review rating 5  We were more than happy with all aspects of the kitchen Joanne from Appleton Designer Kitchens designed and supplied us with. From the initial design for which Joanne made various suggestions and recommendations to improve on our vision, through the subsequent changes which we requested, all done willingly and without fuss, to overseeing the installation and all for a very competitive price. It was also a pleasure dealing with Joanne as she takes pride in the kitchen’s that she designs and supplies and has the highest level of attention to detail that sets her and Pronorm kitchens apart from other suppliers. We are very happy with the finished article. Susan and Andrew Abbott

    thumb Joanne Tanswell
  • review rating 5  Joanne provided valuable input into the design of our kitchen which other companies seemed unwilling or unable to do. She ensures what was planned is delivered and personally manages the project from start to finish. The end result is a fantastic kitchen which we both love and enjoy.
