As part of the move away from natural gas appliances, the city encourages residents to consider new ways of cooking. Starting next week, the city will start a year round program to loan homeowners an induction cooktop. “Induction is used by top chefs and is faster, more efficient, and better than gas,” says Nate Redinbo, the city’s CivicSpark Fellow.
Homeowners curious about this different style of cooking can try it out risk-free. The cooktop can plug into any traditional wall outlet. Once you sign up using the google form below, a city staff member will be in contact via email or phone, and arrange for a time to pick up the cooktop from City Hall. (If necessary, the city can can drop it off at your home.) Each kit includes a state-of-the-art induction cooktop, a compatible pot and pan, and a magnet, so you can test your own cookware to see if it will work on the cooktop.
If you have questions about any of these programs, please contact Nate at firstname.lastname@example.org.
