Portable induction cooktops (sometimes called induction hot plates) don’t burn fossil fuels or release toxic pollutants into your home or the environment. Instead, they use electricity and magnets to help you cook faster, more safely, and much more efficiently.

Why do it?

Gas stoves emit pollutants that harm your health and cause climate change. Induction stoves do not.


Anyone who is not able to get a multi-burner induction range or a conventional electric stove.

How induction cooking works

How can I tell if my pots and pans will work with an induction cooktop?

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.

Maybe not! But a portable induction cooktop can reduce your gas use significantly, which will in turn reduce your exposure to indoor air pollution. You can also use other small electric appliances like an Instant Pot, air fryer, or toaster oven to reduce your gas cooking without replacing your stove. If you do still have to use your gas stove sometimes, remember to turn on your fan or hood vent and open a window, if the weather permits.

Here’s a handy guide to talking to your landlord about all sorts of major electrification projects, including upgrading to an induction stove. First, tell your landlord that gas stoves are dangerous and bad for the health of their tenants (that’s you!). You can also mention that the federal government recently created new incentives and tax credits that cover some of the costs of induction stoves.
