Induction cooker – What are the advantages and disadvantages?

While induction cooking has been popular in Europe and Australia for a number of years, the technology is just beginning to catch on in the United States. What is induction cooker? It is often referred to as heatless cooking because it does not require an open gas flame or red-hot electrical coils. Instead, the heat is generated by electromagnetic currents in burners that respond to metal pots and pans. When you cook on an induction cooktop, only the pan and the food in it get hot. As soon as the pot or pan is removed from the burner, the stove surface becomes almost cool to the touch.

Advantages of induction cooking

Efficiency. The biggest difference between induction cooking and other methods is where the heat is actually generated. Gas and electric stoves produce heat in a burner. This heat is then transferred to a pan and then to its contents. In contrast, induction cooktops generate heat in the pot. There is no transfer from burner to pan. Therefore, there is practically no residual heat. According to studies, induction cooking is around 90% efficient, compared to electric and gas cooking, which have an energy efficiency rating of 47% and 40%, respectively.

Safety. Security is a major selling point. With induction cooking, the burners stay cool (room temperature), eliminating the worry of burning your hands, using hot pads, or admitting dangerous vapors into the air.

Save time. Induction hobs reach extremely high temperatures in a short period of time. During the cooking process, any heat adjustment is precise and almost instantaneous. The gas heat is pretty accurate too, but it takes longer for the burners to heat the pan to the starting temperature.

Comfort. Induction burners will not heat up your kitchen. This attracts chefs, caterers, and even home cooks.

convenience. Food spills and spills won’t burn on the stovetop and clean up easily. Most cooktops are made of easy-to-clean glass or ceramic. Plus, you can leave the pot on the stove after cooking without worrying about the excess heat burning your food.

Disadvantages of induction cooking

cost. Induction cooktops are typically more expensive than gas or electric cooktops, often starting around $1,500. If you cooked with gas before switching to induction, you may need to rewire your range to accommodate the 240 volts required for most induction cooktops.

special kitchen utensils. In order for your pan to conduct energy, it must be magnetic. Induction can heat food only through steel or iron pans. You can test your cookware for compatibility by running a magnet across the pan. If the magnet sticks to the pan, the pan will work. Not all stainless steel cookware is compatible with induction cooking.

Availability. Induction cooking in the United States is still a relatively new concept. Therefore, induction cooktops are not as widely available as their gas and electric counterparts. As the demand for induction cooktops increases, prices should start to drop.
