Induction hobs do not get piping hot like your regular gas hobs do. They only get slightly warmer, making them way more safer an option than gas hobs. With an induction hob, you do not have to risk getting burned while or even after cooking (getting a pot of freshly made hot food off from the hob). Another thing that makes it safe is, as soon as you remove a pan from the hob, it gets automatically switched off. So, you don't have to worry about having forgotten to turn off the hob.

Furthermore, because the combustion fumes getting off a burning hob are complete absent in this case, you never have to feel the familiar irritation on working in an increasingly hot kitchen. The heat generated by an induction hob is radiated back to the hob itself instead of getting released in the kitchen workspace. This makes it safe, healthy, as well as a less bothersome option!

Next, it doesn’t heat up the spillages that you might have accidentally caused while cooking, like a gas hob does. So, you can remove them easily using a damp piece of cloth. Induction hobs don't get overheated, and so you don’t have to wait for it cool down to get it cleaned. You can start cleaning almost right after your cooking is done. That doesn't just make your work easy, but it also makes an induction hob more hygienic than its counterpart.

It’s the energy efficiency, the absence of carbon dioxide emissions, it’s own energy requirement being about 15-50% lesser than that of a conventional gas hob, and the fact that there’s no overheating of the workspace as the heat is transferred back to the pan - it all makes an induction hob environment-friendly option.
