Cook faster, better, and safer without gas

Induction and conventional electric stoves are the best way to cook. They don’t burn fossil fuels or release toxic pollutants into your home and the environment.

Why do it?

Induction cooktops are faster, use less energy, and do not emit harmful pollution.


When your current stove is nearing end of life (usually about 13 years).

Who is this for?

Ranges for homeowners, portable ranges for renters.

I’m switching from a gas stove, will I need electrical work?

Induction stoves, like electric, require a dedicated 240 Volt outlet, connected to a 40-50 Amp circuit breaker. If you’re moving on from gas, you may need to install high-capacity wiring, a new outlet, and, potentially, upgrade your electrical panel. Finally, you will want to cap your gas line. This is likely work for a licensed electrician (and plumber, if a gas cap is needed), and the costs would depend on your existing wiring and panel, the distance from the kitchen to the panel, and other variables in your home. See our electrical panel project guide for more information.

It’s easy. ENERGY STAR has a list of products that meet their energy efficiency requirements. Visit for more information. You can download the qualified product list here.

Check if your current pots and pans will work with induction using the “magnet test”. If a magnet sticks to the bottom of your pots and pans, you’re good to go! Most stainless steel, cast iron, and ceramic pans with metal embedded will work with induction. Glass, copper, and aluminum pots and pans will not work unless they have an additional metal plate in the bottom.
