An honest take on the ups and downs of Bosch induction cooktops by someone who actually owns one (and cooks on it daily).
So you bought a new home or you’re remodeling your kitchen, and you’re looking for a good wall oven. Could Bosch be it?
Two things almost always take first-time induction range owners by surprise. First, they are really, really powerful. I mean burn-your-food-if-you-go-too-high powerful. Second, they make a lot of noise, whether that’s humming, hissing, or buzzing.
The typical induction cooktop (or “hobs,” as some of you know them) has a surface made of glass-ceramic.
True to its name, glass-ceramic is a material with a chemical composition that’s similar to glass, but with ceramic’s opaqueness, resistance to heat, and the ability to withstand thermal shocks.
It can also be notoriously difficult to clean if you like to keep your cooktop spotless. And who doesn’t?
KitchenAid’s stand mixers are iconic for a reason (some would say for much more than one).
They’re gorgeous in their looks and, with a variety of accessories and attachments, designed for much more than baking. When you buy a new one from KitchenAid’s website, you can even have it engraved for free.
Stand mixers are a sound investment and a mandatory countertop appliance for the seasoned home cook. But they can also be a bit pricey.
Nowhere is this more true than with KitchenAid, the iconic American brand that’s behind some of the best stand mixers on the market ever since it launched its first model, the H-5, in 1919.
So you went on a shopping spree at the grocery store last week, stocked up on more fruits and veggies than you normally do, and kept some of them in your fridge for longer.
Now, you opened the fridge, only to see that some of them had caught mold. What should you do? Do you have to throw those moldy food items away, or are they still safe to eat?
It’s been half a year since I started cooking with induction. So far, it’s been working out great. Enough so that I continue to stick to the opinion that, despite their higher price, induction cooktops are generally worth it.
The cooktop heats my pans and pots quickly and evenly (for those of you coming here for the first time and who may be wondering, I cook mostly with tri-ply stainless steel and every now and then with cast iron).
Since my induction cooktop’s surface stays cool and my cookware heats from the inside out (I’ll tell you exactly how this works later on in this post), cleanup has been mostly effortless.
