Over the years, people learned how to deal with fire in order to survive the cold weather and to cook. Primitive human beings used to cook animals, fishes and vegetables using a bonfire. Later, the bonfire turned into a woodburner cooker and then to the ordinary gas stove.
As the technology developed, the cooktop was created. Can you imagine a hob without fire? It’s the induction stove!! It works with electromagnetic fields.
Nowadays, as everyone has access to electricity and the internet, the kitchen appliances are becoming more smart . Most of them can be controlled by your smartphone or have artificial intelligence. Besides modern hobs have a sleek look which creates a sophisticated style statement in your kitchen.
