What impacts are our kitchen appliances having on the environment and on our health? 

Did you know that electric induction cooking is much more energy efficient than top-of-the-line gas range appliances, and does not create harmful carbon monoxide emissions?  That’s right, cleaner indoor air and cooler temperatures while you cook!

Join us for a special end of the year event, “In Conversation with Chef. Galarza,” to learn more about sustainable cooking and answer all of your burning questions about induction cooking and kitchen electrification. Make sure you register to join our workshop on December 8th at 7 PM EST | 4 PM PST.
