Ceramic hob: A comparison of consumption and costs
The consumption also differs depending on the size and technology of the ceramic hobs. Consumption of 0.75 kW to 2.5 kW per hob is usual. Depending on what type of cooker you have been using, you can save money with a new ceramic hob.
- Stiftung Warentest brought 1.5 liters of water to a boil using a wide variety of techniques. At 25 cents per kWh, a kettle generated costs 4 cents; a classic plate stove 9 cents. The ceramic hob consumed electricity worth 6 cents, an induction cooker used 3 to 6 cents.
- If you have previously used a stove with cast-iron plates, you can save money with a ceramic hob. The savings with the induction cooker depend entirely on user behavior. On average, an induction cooker saves only a few euros per year compared to a ceramic hob. Due to the sometimes higher acquisition costs and the need for special pots, an induction cooker is not necessarily cheaper.
