Cooktop Market: Introduction
A cooktop is commonly found in kitchens for heating and cooking purposes. It is generally used for heating the base of pots and pans. Cooktops are available in various types. They are powered by gas, electricity, or induction to heat the food.
Traditionally, cooking happened over an open fire. Gradually, with the development of pottery and utensils, regulated heat became essential. When cultures began to leave behind their wandering ways, more consideration was given to refine culinary techniques, leading to the creation of cooktops. Cooktops can be found integrated with an oven or they may be standalone devices.
