Cooking methods atop a stove is probably the most convenient and versatile way of preparing the widest variety of dishes from appetizers all the way to desserts. Though microwave cooking heats food very fast, cooking complete meals using this relatively appliance has not very caught on despite new models being marketed that can bake, grill and brown foods which was not possible in the first models of microwave ovens. Some health food advocates including those into raw food voice out concerns about potentially harmful effects of cooking in a microwave though this isn’t widely known by most users.

Having a kitchen stove, whether gas-fired or electric, one- or multiple-burner with many additional features like a built in grill, heat pad, etc. can be the key to preparing the most delectable meals for your family and friends. Everything else can be viewed as a bonus. Even if one has a blender, food processor and other cool gadgets that help make prepare ingredients, without a means to cook them, all efforts will go to waste.

Invest in good stove top cooking vessels that suit your favorite cooking methods. A sturdy frying pan and a pot should be a staple in your kitchen. Oriental cooking makes good use of a wok. Though non-stick seems a heaven sent for the novice cook, ensure that you get good quality cookware as some cheap versions wear and tear very quickly. Do not use metal implements and cleaning pads as this tends to scratch the surface and contaminate the food.

Induction stove tops use electromagnetic technology in heating food in a metal vessel. Do note that not all pots and pans will work on an induction stove. An advantage of induction is very instant heat generation which cooks food a lot faster requiring frequent checking dishes being prepared.

Once you have the basics stove, tools and ingredients, you can pretty much do anything your heart and stomach desire–pan-fry, deep fry, boil, braise, poach, steam and many other techniques. Fry the simplest sunny side up egg or grill the juiciest Angus prime rib steak. With some modern cooking vessels, you can even “bake” without an oven and do it simply on the stove top.

Many modern kitchen cooking devices are making the waves in the market being sold in department and appliance stores; hardware stores complete with an employees with a lapel microphone demonstrating and declaiming the convenience of their product; and even on home television shopping endorsed by celebrities and chefs. Though these are marketed to highlight the multiple functions of the item, one has to be careful and discern if it will suit his or her kitchen requirements.
