Have you heard of induction cooking? If you said yes, you are probably thinking of convection cooking, a common mistake. Most people do not yet know about induction cooking, but once they learn about it they are sold! The black surface in the picture above is an induction cooktop.
Some fun facts about induction cookings.
- Fastest way to cook. Bring water to a boil in half the time of traditional electric or gas elements. Induction cooking heats a pan using magnetic induction, while gas and electric stoves heat by using flames or electric heating elements for thermal conduction.
- More precise cooking and temperature control than gas.
- Puts less heat waste in the kitchen, minimizing the need for an exhaust fan. More of the energy stays contained in the pan with induction, which is why your food heats faster.
- Easy to clean – no more taking apart stove grates. You can even spread newspaper on top while cooking to catch grease. When you are done, simply crumple up the paper and throw away.
- Safer around children and pets. The only time the cooking surface is hot is when a pan is on it. As soon as you take away the pan, the cooking surface is safe to touch. Areas without a pan will never heat up.
