Cooking Without Gas


When it comes to healthy food that tastes outrageously good, Chef Martin Oswald is your guy. As the executive chef at Pyramid Bistro in Aspen and Mix 6 in Snowmass Village, his creativity in the kitchen is well-known. What’s not as well-known is that Chef Martin does it all without fossil fuels.  His kitchens, at home and at his restaurants, are all-electric. Chef Martin joined us at Ben Koon’s net-zero home to do a cooking demo on an induction stove just like the ones he uses every day.

The Path to Zero is all about electrification and that means electrifying everything…even your stove. Induction cooktops use magnets to conduct electricity directly into the pan without any waste making it the quickest and most efficient way of cooking without fossil fuels. We want to make this an easy switch for residents, so CORE now rebates induction stoves, funding 25% of project costs up to $500.

Got questions? I am here to help. 

“What’s so nice about induction stoves is the heat gets transferred right away. There’s a magnet in there that heats it up really fast. It lets me boil my water within 5 minutes.” – Chef Martin, Pyramid Bistro & Mix 6
