Recording Available — Induction Stove Webinar: 7pm Tues. May 24

NEW: A recording of this webinar is now online:

In this free webinar, Ryan Pierce from Samsung explained how induction stoves work and the practical and environmental benefits they provide. He also summarized the research showing the negative impacts of gas stoves on the health of those that have them.

In addition, we heard from an induction stove user and we learned how to take advantage of the bulk discounts that we have negotiated with Best Buy. There was lots of time to ask questions in this 60-90 minute session.

Why are we doing this?
Most homes in Ontario cities have three gas appliances and together they generate significant greenhouse gas emissions. Besides gas stoves, many have gas water heaters and gas furnaces. Replacing a gas cookstove is a good first step in transitioning off fossil fuels, because doing so will also yield health benefits. Research shows that gas stoves release considerable amounts of indoor air pollutants, much of which linger long after people turn off their exhaust systems.

More reasons to consider:
Induction stoves heat water twice as fast as gas and they are safer than both gas and conventional electric stoves. Best Buy is providing discounts of $300 to $900 on seven different induction stove ranges and $100 to $150 on three different induction stove cooktops. Best of all, they have a special team who will discuss which brand of an induction range or cooktop might best meet the needs of a particular individual. Anyone in Ontario within Best Buy’s catchment area can participate.
