Frigidaire FGIC3067MB Review – 30″ Ideal Cooktop for Big Family
Many have realized the advantages and benefits of induction cooktop over other cooktop models and upgraded to it in the recent years. Here, I’m not saying induction cooktop is better than other types of cooktop, and I’m also aware that our choice of cooktop may also differ. You might choose to stick with the ever popular gas cooktop while I may prefer induction cooktop such as Frigidaire FGIC3067MB over gas and non-induction electric cooktops for my own reasons.
When we look at the features, benefits, designs, conveniences, safety, etc. and compare between the cooktops available today, induction cooktop occupies the top position. But again, it’s up to you to choose the cooktop that you want. Most common mistakes that people do while choosing a cooktop is going by the looks/design or modern features, instead of checking their cooking needs and requirements prior to buying. This is the root cause for the disappointment and dissatisfaction that will soon follow once you start using the cooktop. Therefore, you must know how you will be using the cooktop and what your cooking needs and requirements are.
Many modern kitchens these days keep portable induction cooktop as emergency/backup cooktop. If you love induction cooking and are convenient using induction cooktops, it is high time to upgrade your kitchen with induction cooktop as the primary cooktop. The Frigidaire FGIC3067MB model is a full capacity induction cooktop designed for family use; a cooktop designed to bring a smile while cooking in the kitchen.

30 Inches Induction Cooktop with 4 Powerful Burners
For my family, the Frigidaire 30 inches Gallery model that supports 4 different size burners exactly meets our needs. A 36 inches cooktop with 5 burners occupy much space, and I don’t really feel the need of the extra burner I will get in it. I’ve never used all the 4 burners simultaneously (because I haven’t got the opportunity to). 2 burners easily take care of all my cooking most of the time; the third burner comes into play only when I’m in hurry or when I have guest. I really like the design and its sleek look. It has a dimension of 21.5 (depth) x 4.4 (height) x 30.8 (width) inches. It fits gracefully, looking radiant as ever on my countertop. It is the one item in my kitchen that I own with pride, and the one that truly make my kitchen look more modern.

The four burners are of different size to accommodate different pan size and are powered with different Watt to enable you to cook all kinds of food in perfection. The burner located at Front Right is the main burner and the most powerful one. It has a cooking diameter of 10 inches and supports cooking temperature between 2500 to 3400 Watts. The Right Rear burner is the smallest size burner with a cooking diameter of 6 inches and provides cooking temperature from 1450 to 2000 Watts. The Left Front burner has 7 inches cooking diameter and cooking temperature starts from 1800 till 2600 Watts. The Left Rear burner can accommodate pans up to 8 inches and you can switch between cooking temperature of 2300-3200 Watts.
Energy Efficient and Fast Cooking- Energy Saving
Induction cooking is now regarded as the future of cooking. And one key factor that differentiates induction cooktop from other types of cooktop is its energy efficient nature. Energy efficiency is at its best in induction cooking. This is because in induction cooking, the heat is not supplied by external element. The cooking pan itself is the heat generator. Therefore no heat is lost. When we compare the energy efficiency between induction cooktop, electric cooktop and gas cooktop, it reads 84%, 73% and 40% respectively.
This energy efficient nature enabled one important cooking aspect- faster cooking. Since there is no heat lost, it consequently cooks food faster. It is said that induction cooktop cooks food twice faster the speed of other types of cooktop. My Frigidaire 30 Inches Induction Cooktop has made life at kitchen pleasant and now I spend lesser time in the kitchen preparing food for my family. Making breakfast for the family is easy and fast now. Also the energy bill has been reduced at a fair amount.
