Ceramic glass hobs are attractive for their price, less excessive than the price of induction hobs. But the cost of energy consumption of ceramic hobs could supplement this difference in price. What is it exactly? Focus on the consumption of a ceramic hob.
How to know the energy consumption of my ceramic hob?
The cost of energy consumption of a ceramic hob depends on the power of the appliance and the time required for different cooking. To know the amount of energy consumption of a dish, you need
- multiply the power of the fireplace used (on high, medium or low heat) by the cooking time
- and to multiply the result to the cost of electricity.
Today, cooks have an energy label that allows them to know their energy consumption in advance. The stoves are thus placed on a scale ranging from A, lower energy consumption, to G, higher consumption. However, this device does not exist yet for ceramic hobs alone. To take advantage of this, you will have to move towards ceramic hobs integrated into a stove.
What is the consumption of a ceramic hob?
It is well known that the ceramic hob is the most efficient electric hob. It must be known that the more a plate is fast to heat, the less it will consume. In this respect, ceramic hobs are slower than their counterparts to reach the same temperature. In addition, the radiant ceramic hotplate that radiates constant heat is used extensively for simmering, that is, for preparations that require longer cooking times. To consume less, we advise you to opt for a vitroceramic hotplate that has radiant fireplaces and halogen fireplaces.
Little more however, the hob glass hob only heats the cooking zone. There is no heat loss and energy. Another fact: the ceramic hob does not require no gas supply, and therefore remains more economical than a gas stove.
