Switching from a gas stove to an electric stove can have a positive impact on the environment and your health. According to experts, gas stoves in the United States release 2.6 million tons of methane into the air every year, even when not in use. That’s equivalent to the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by 500,000 cars a year, or what the United States emits into the air every three-and-a-half hours. By switching to electric stoves, we can help slow global warming.
Using gas stoves can also lead to poor indoor air quality, which can worsen health conditions like allergies, asthma, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. Using a gas stove can exacerbate these health problems by releasing certain pollutants into the air. So upgrading to an electric stove is not only a better decision for the planet, but it’s probably better for your well-being too.
By 2023, there will be a variety of electric hobs on the market with eco-friendly features such as convection cooking, air fryer functionality, Wi-Fi compatibility for remote use and monitoring, and self-cleaning functionality. The appliances come in a variety of colors, allowing you to coordinate them with your kitchen’s color palette.
The Samsung Smart Custom Plug-In Electric Stove is an example of a well-reviewed electric stove. The device features Samsung’s fastest recorder ever and is fully Wi-Fi connected and voice enabled. You can control your hob and oven from the Samsung SmartThings app on your phone. Plus, the look of this hotplate can be customized to match your other Samsung appliances.
Another option is the Samsung Smart Induction Cooktop Insert, which combines the visual appeal of gas cooking with the precision of induction cooking. It can be controlled from your smartphone or voice assistant and learns your cooking preferences to recommend the settings you use most. The smooth glass surface of the induction hob is easy to clean and prevents food from sticking. The range also includes a no-preheat air fryer mode and comes with the Samsung Ready2Fit guarantee.
By switching to an electric stove, we can have a positive impact on the environment while creating a healthier home environment. It’s time to embrace these eco-friendly appliances for a greener, cleaner future.
