Want to learn more about cooking without gas? Consider attending this virtual event about Induction Cooking being hosted by Energize Wayland and co-sponsored by Temple Shir Tikva on Wednesday, October 25th from 7:30 – 8:30 pm! Cooking with gas stoves is thought of as the norm, but you may not be aware of the risks or safer alternatives. When using gas stoves, the burning gas releases nitrogen dioxide, small particulate matter, and carbon monoxide, polluting your kitchen air. While ventilation can help to remove these pollutants, it is only efficient if your exhaust hood is strong enough and vents to the outdoors.

An induction stove is a safer alternative to cooking with a gas stove. Induction stoves are unique electric stoves that can cook food faster than a gas stove and regulate temperatures just as precisely. It does so by using magnetic waves to heat only the pan, not the surface of the stove. Costs of induction burners and stoves vary widely but if you are ready for a replacement, then there are new MassSave rebates ($500) and federal tax credits that you can take advantage of to ease the costs.

At the Induction Cooking event, Andee Krasner (Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility) will talk about the health risks of gas cooking and government rebates/incentives. Testimonials from those who have experience with induction stoves and cooktops will also be shared.
