I made this video in partnership with Mothers Out Front about why I cook almost exclusively with induction these days – and why I won’t be going back to gas in my home.

I first discovered induction when I was out doing popups in Detroit – and I was immediately impressed by the quick cooking speeds, cleanliness, and precise temperature control. The technology uses magnets to heat a metal pan directly – so changes in temperature are almost instantaneous.

But what really got me hooked on the technology is how much it changes the atmosphere in the kitchen. The gas ranges in professional kitchens can be pretty merciless. Gas burners release a ton of waste heat – and as I’ve now learned, air pollution – into the kitchen. Adopting induction into my small studio allowed for us to maintain a level of comfort we’d never get with gas.

I’ve also learned that gas is a major source of climate and indoor air pollution which I do see as a personal responsibility to mitigate if it is within your means to do so.

If you have access to an induction cooktop, I highly recommend you give it a try.

I love induction cooking, and got an induction range about 8 years ago. That expensive range had two expensive repairs in the first two years. It broke my heart but I couldn't afford the second repair, couldn't even give it away and it ended up junked. Are there reliability or longevity issues with induction burners?
