But wax paper lies flat on the counter to sift flour onto, and it minds its own chemicals when microwaving dishes. Some plastic wrap fits so tightly over the bowl that it holds in big gusts of steam — an open invitation to a burn when opening.

Hambright's most treasured knife is a quirky one that her husband gave her, designed by celebrity chef Alton Brown of Food Network's Good Eats fame. It features a razor sharp blade, 33 layers of stainless steel and a 10-degree angled handle that prevents your knuckles from hitting the cutting board as you work. "It may sound silly, but I just love the way it feels in my hand," she says. "You do need to find a knife you can hold comfortably; otherwise, you're not going to want to use it."

The first is pricing, which tends to run approximately 20 percent higher than more conventional stoves, she estimates. But she has found that for most clients, especially in the mid- to upper-end kitchens, that incremental addition isn’t a deal-breaker. "Most clients are looking to upgrade their kitchens when they remodel, and they are looking for better performance rather than the cheapest price. I've never found induction cooktops to be a hard sell when they see what they provide."

Foremost is safety, especially in homes with children, since there is no heat on the cooking surface, only in the pan. Energy consumption can be cut by 10 percent to 20 percent by using an induction cooktop rather than a more conventional type of stove, again since only the pan is heated, according to a study by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy.

"The induction cooktop, while not yet a part of most households, is becoming increasingly accepted as a useful, energy-efficient method of preparing food," according to a fact sheet produced by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Michigan Technological University. The cooktops contain coils made of a magnetic material. When current passes through the coil, it produces a magnetic field that transfers to the pan above it. The pan and its contents heat up but neither the cooktop nor the air above it becomes hot. When the pan is removed, the energy transfer stops.

This means that a compact cube microwave is a perfect choice when you don’t have a lot of room. If you don’t have any space on your counter, consider putting your microwave on top of your fridge or even on a separate cart in your kitchen.

Try mixing metallic tiles in different shades with various finishes, such as brushed stainless steel, oil-rubbed bronze or even an antique brass. By including small tiles of marble or granite, you can pull in the countertop color without being boring with a panel of granite that extends up from the countertop, says Barrie Spang, interior designer at Lee Meier Interiors in Westlake, Ohio. As for glass tiles, check out some of the newer tiles with a bit of crackle or frosted finish, Spang says.

These higher-end materials will mean an increase in budget, but also a stunning and long-lasting stove backsplash.

If your kitchen is a hyper-modern affair boasting stainless steel appliances and angular, monochrome cabinets, you'll have an opportunity to add some color, patterning and visual excitement to what might otherwise be a minimalist design via your backsplash. Alternatively, you may choose to stick with the sleek, modern feel with simple white subway tile or large, slate-like granite pieces. On the other hand, if your kitchen has more of a traditional or country feel, with lots of detailed wood cabinetry and a cozy design, you may want to consider tile that reflects the overall aesthetic and incorporates whimsical designs or traditional colors and patterns.
