How induction cooktops work


Published on

Induction cooktops use an electromagnetic field to heat up a pan while leaving the cooking surface cool to the touch and without heating the air around the cooktop. It's much safer and more energy efficient than either gas or electric cooking. Get more brands Induction cooktops visit here:

How induction cooktops work

  1. 1. How Induction Cooktops Work
  2. 2.   Induction cooking is based on an electro-magnetic field creating energy which heats the base of a pan positioned on the cooktop. The electro-magnetic field is activated when material containing iron (ferrous material) comes within range of the inductors beneath the cooktop surface.
  3. 3. Introduction • Induction cooktops boast speed surpassing electric, temperature response rivaling gas, and safety and cleaning ease that beat out glass-and-ceramic-top stoves. • Pans need to contain ferrous material for induction to work. Full stainless steel, aluminium, copper, terracotta or pyrex don't contain ferrous material, so theoretically they won't work.

  7. 7. Benefits of cooking with an induction cooktop Efficient: Induction cooking uses 90% of the energy produced. Induction recognizes the base of cookware, directly heating only the diameter of the pot, so very little energy is wasted.
  8. 8. Safer: There are no open flames and the surface remains cool to the touch Quicker: Heating and adjustments are immediate, saving you up to 50% of the cooking time when compared to more traditional methods Even Heating: Hot spots and rings are avoided because the bottom of your cookware heats uniformly Easy Cleaning: The surface is flat and smooth; spills and overflows do not stick to the cooktop, so they can easily be wiped away
  9. 9. Electromagnetic Induction   Electromagnetic induction occurs when a circuit with an alternating current flowing through it generates current in another circuit simply by being placed nearby. An alternating current is the kind of electricity flowing through power lines and home wiring, as opposed to a direct current, which we get from batteries.
  10. 10. Look at a few principles linking magnetism and electricity:  Every electric current has a magnetic field surrounding it.  Alternating currents have fluctuating magnetic fields.  Fluctuating magnetic fields cause currents to flow in conductors placed within them, which is also known as Faraday's Law.
  11. 11. Heating Induction Cooktops Induction cooktops work the same way: Coils located just beneath the cooktop's elements carry an alternating current, creating a changing magnetic field.

  13. 13. Induction Cooktops Pros and Cons Induction cooktops work, you're probably wondering what makes them any better or worse than cooktops with radiant elements, such as electric coils, gas burners or glass-ceramic stovetops.
  14. 14. Some of the pros and cons of induction cooktops: Cooking Experience: Induction cooktops heat 25-50 percent faster and distribute heat more evenly than radiant stovetops, and they offer quick, fine temperature adjustment. Safety and Cleaning: Cooler surfaces and no open flame to ignite grease, induction cooktops are safer and easier to clean than their radiant counterparts. Cost vs. Efficiency: Prices start at $1,800 and go up to about $3,500, compared with $550 - $750 for top-tier electric cooktops and $650 - $1,200 for gas.
  15. 15. Buying an Induction Cooktop
  16. 16. Buying an Induction Cooktop Tips: Try before you buy: Some manufacturers offer cooktops that have induction elements alongside radiant elements, or you can test drive the technology with a portable unit for less than $200. Buy a model designed specifically for home use: Induction cooktops were originally designed for use in industrial and restaurant kitchens. Know what you're getting into: If you're replacing a stove or remodeling an existing kitchen, be sure that your wiring, voltage and amperage can handle the load. Ask an electrician: Power grids fluctuate, and even modern wiring doesn't necessarily put out its rated voltage.
