Induction Cooking and Induction Cooker




Induction Cooking:

Induction cooking is one of the safest and most efficient cooking methods. Induction cooker works on the basis of an electromagnet which creates a powerful, high-frequency electromagnetic field. When cookware consisting of magnetic material such as iron, steel, cast-iron, enamel coated steel is placed on the induction cooker, the electromagnetic field transfers energy to the bottom of the induction compatible cookware, which causes the cookware and the food inside it to become hot. The amount of heat generated in the cookware depends upon the varying strength of the electromagnetic field produced. When the strength of the electromagnetic field is changed, the temperature of the cookware changes instantly.

Induction Cooker:

Induction cooker is a cooking appliance that uses the method of induction heating to cook your food. It is completely different from your convention stove as induction cooker does away the use of gas and instead uses electricity to do the cooking. A ferromagnetic or ferromagnetic coated pot is placed above an induction coil for the heating process to take place.

Energy Efficiency:

Heat is generated in the pot directly and then to the food.
With lesser heat being loss unnecessary to the surroundings, your kitchen remains cooler.

Safety:

This has a cool stove top. The stove top hardly gets warm and is gentle to your hand even if you touch the stove top with your bare hand. Not only does an induction cooker save energy and money, the absence of an open flame keeps the kitchen safer from any unnecessary fire hazards. An induction cooker combines the simplicity and rapid heating quality of electric stoves with responsive temperature control. Unlike conventional cooktops that make use of a gas element or a heating coil, the induction type cookers utilize magnetic energy for cooking. Induction cookers make use of induction heating to generate heat directly in the cookware without any need of warming the burner.


A useful tip:
·       Do not use high heat setting on Induction cooker when not monitoring the utensil.
·       Use low to medium settings to heat oil slowly.
·       Use high heat settings on Induction cooker only when it is necessary.
