Channel your inner chef with a clean, fast-cooking, and environmentally friendly induction cooktops.
Induction cooktops heat up ~50% faster and are substantially more energy efficient than gas and conventional electric stoves.
Lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to gas or propane cooking
Eliminate toxic emissions released from gas and propane cooking that can lead to asthma and cardiovascular disease
Induction cooktops cook faster and more evenly than electric, gas, and propane. The flat surface makes cleanup a breeze
Poses no risk of gas leaks and reduces risk of fires and accidental burns
When the cooktop is turned on, a magnetic current rapidly bounces from metal wires beneath the surface of the cooktop to the cookware, creating friction that immediately heats the pot or pan. To work, cookware must have a magnetic bottom: to see if your current cookware is compatible, simply check if a regular magnet will stick.

In this video, Chef Rachelle Boucher, “The Appliance Whisperer,” demonstrates how easy it is to cook on an induction cooktop.
“Especially because we have a child, we’re interested in safety and air quality. Induction is the leader in those categories. Also, of course, we wanted to get one more fossil fuel appliance out of our home!”
Induction Cooking Rebate: $500 on your purchase of an induction cooktop when switching from a gas or propane stove
If you live in a town served by a Municipal Light Plant (MLP) check your MLP’s website for incentives and rebates.
Inflation Reduction Act: Up to $840 depending on your household size and income.
Cost after incentives is estimated by subtracting Mass Save rebate from up-front cost.
Cost after incentives may be substantially lower if your household qualifies for income-scaled Federal rebates.

Do you have a gas stove?
Induction cooktops have several health benefits compared to gas stoves. Gas stoves produce twice as much 2.5 micron particulate matter (PM2.5) as electric stoves. They also emit nitrogen oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NOx), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), carbon monoxide (CO), and formaldehyde (CH2O or HCHO).
Studies have shown that children in homes with gas stoves are more likely to develop ailments such as asthma than those with electric stoves. Gas stoves leak carbon monoxide (CO), an odorless gas that kills 500 people a year in the U.S.
Induction cooking is more efficient, and it runs on electricity instead of burning methane gas (which is commonly called natural gas) to cook your food. Methane is a greenhouse gas, so by lowering your use of it you can reduce your home’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Is your existing cooktop reaching the end of its useful life?
Now would be a good time to replace it—and enjoy the benefits of induction-cooking technology.
Are you worried about your children’s safety around your stove?
With no open flames or exposed heating elements, induction cooktops reduce the risk of fire and accidental burns in the kitchen—making them an excellent choice for families with small children.
Are you planning a kitchen renovation?
While you’re already remodeling, this is a great time to switch to a cleaner, safer cooking solution, especially since depending on the stove you’re replacing, installation may require the help of various professionals.
Do you accidentally burn food when you’re cooking on your current stove?
While you still can burn food on an induction stove, it does give you more control, so you can avoid some common overcooking scenarios. You can keep the temperature consistent and precise, so a low simmer doesn’t turn into a rolling boil. There is also no actual exposed flame that might accidentally burn food (or fingers).
Do you wish that cooking didn’t take as long as it does?
Induction cooking is super speedy: an induction “burner” heats the pot you place on it immediately, and you can boil water about twice as fast, depending on volume.
