Why Choose Induction Hobs Over Gas Hobs?

Choosing the right hob for you can often be a challenge - especially considering the wide range of options available. Induction hobs are undoubtedly on the upper end of the price spectrum and considered an investment for many businesses, however they most certainly offer a great return given their functional and environmental benefits.

Here at Target Catering Equipment, we've considered the advantages and disadvantages of gas hobs and kept these in mind when developing our bespoke commercial induction suites by incorporating the very latest commercial induction hob technologies.

Using gas hobs in any commercial kitchen - large or small, can make for an extremely heated environment, creating tough working conditions for chefs. We believe in providing only the best catering equipment to make cooking an enjoyable yet efficient experience.

Induction hobs only consume energy when an induction-friendly pan is placed on the cooktop. This action completes the electrical circuit. The hob and induction element itself always remains cool and automatically switches off when the pan is removed; thus, heat is only emitted from the pan rather than the hob. This creates a whole range of safety benefits, whilst also keeping kitchens cooler. Additionally, compared to the 40% energy efficiency of gas hobs, induction hobs are 90% energy efficient completing cooking tasks much quicker - so the return on your investment is much greater. The maintenance requirements are also comparatively low, making the day to day running of the kitchen a much less stressful experience.

In addition to cooler cooking environments, induction hobs are much safer for industrial use since there's a lower risk of fire and staff injuries - allowing the working day to run more smoothly. This highly effective cooking method allows for consistent production of quality food at a more efficient rate, ultimately improving customer turnover and profit.

Induction hobs are an extremely smart range of hobs, making cooking easy and safe without having to compensate on the quality of food or service. These hobs offer highly accurate temperature control, whilst also reducing the risk of food spoilage, and the chances of staff misuse is greatly reduced thanks to its simplistic and safe design. Induction hobs are also incredibly flexible in use compared with gas hobs, since they support a whole range of cooking styles and the cool, flat surface can be used as extra space for preparation when not in use.

Above all else, induction hobs are environmentally friendly. Unlike gas hobs, there is minimal risk of wasted energy being emitted into the atmosphere and can be powered by renewable energy sources. These hobs can greatly reduce your company's impact on the environment, whilst improving overall sustainability for the business.

Induction hobs are cost effective, multi-functional, flexible and great for the environment - allowing for efficient, guilt-free cooking all day long.
