Does it smell like gas for gas cooking?

In 2011, induction accounted for 46% of volume sales of cooktops, the rest being represented by gas, electric and ceramic hobs. Equipment in the induction hob is constantly increasing. In French households, 23% of cooktops were induction in 2011 (source: GIFAM). Today equipped with a gas stove with four burners, I too will take the plunge with my new kitchen by choosing an induction hob. Yet I love my gas cooktop and I love to see this blue flame flickering. But, like most French people, I am going to switch to the induction table, because this cooking method is faster and more precise, but also because the maintenance of an induction table is much easier. Just to contradict me, Scholtès has just marketed new gas cooktops with Planar technology. This technology allows a vertical exit of the flame so that the heat distribution is better distributed. Scholtès indicates that Planar technology makes it possible to reach the boiling point 20% faster than a triple crown burner, while consuming 45% less. And in addition these hobs seem to be easier to clean compared to conventional burners.

Although Planar technology is highlighted on the Scholtès site, I did not find the corresponding hobs but I found several models already on sale on the Internet like the TG 755 PIX GH (at € 549) or TV 755 PGH BK (from € 423).
