An electric cooktop is a kitchen appliance that uses electricity to power heating elements or coils, which produce heat for cooking. These cooktops offer a flat cooking surface made of materials like ceramic glass or metal, providing even heat distribution and easy cleanup. They come in various configurations, including coil cooktops with exposed heating elements and smoothtop cooktops with concealed elements beneath a glass-ceramic surface.
Gas cooktops typically provide more precise temperature control and faster heating compared to electric cooktops. They are preferred by many chefs for their responsiveness and ability to quickly adjust heat levels. Gas cooktops also offer visual cues, such as flames, which can help users gauge heat intensity.

On the other hand, electric cooktops tend to have a smoother and more even heating surface, making them suitable for delicate cooking tasks like simmering and melting. They are generally easier to clean since the surface is usually flat and smooth. Additionally, electric cooktops are often considered safer because there's no open flame, reducing the risk of gas leaks or accidental fires.
