Before we begin with the 1st one, let’s understand what an electric stove is and its types.
What is an Electric Stove?
An electric stove is a device used for cooking which uses electricity to produce heat (instead of gas). As it converts electrical energy into heat, it is becoming popular in areas where there is a shortage of gas and people don’t want to use wood stoves.
Types of Electric Stoves in Pakistan
There are 2 popular types of electric stoves in Pakistan. The first one is the hot plate which is rather simple to understand. Invented in the 20th century, this stove is powered by electricity which is used to heat the coil and ultimately the plate over it.
The 2nd type of electric stove is a little complicated. An induction cooker uses electricity to directly heat pots and pans via magnetic induction. There isn’t any heated element in it which is why its surface doesn’t heat up in the process. The electric current passes through a coiled copper wire, which creates a magnetic current throughout the cooking pan to produce heat.
An induction cooker is considered more efficient than a hot plate and gas stove due to the least loss of heat in the process. It also heats the water ~50% faster than a hot plate of the same power. However, you will need a special cooker or pan made for an induction cooker as normal pans or pots may not work on it.
The Hot Plate Price in Pakistan ranges from Rs.7,500 to Rs.15,000.
The Induction Cooker price in Pakistan ranges from Rs.8,000 to Rs.36,000.
These prices are effective on blog publishing dates. We have mentioned the prices of major brands’ products. The items of budget-friendly brands may come at a lower price.
