How does an induction cooker work?
Traditional gas stoves and electric cooktops transfer heat to cookware using thermal conduction via direct contact. But an induction cooker heats pans and pots through magnetic induction, or with the use of electromagnetic currents. The cooker passes an electric current through a copper wire under its surface, and this in turn creates a magnetic current to heat the cookware. It also allows the user to cook at high power and to rapidly increase cooking temperature in a very safe manner. This is why a number of home cooks enjoy having their own induction cookers.
What are the advantages of an induction cooker?
There are several advantages that an induction cooker has over gas or electric stoves. For one, it can heat food up to 50% more efficiently. It’s also capable of more precise temperature control, and it heats only the part of the cookware that’s touching the magnetic field. Since your pan is only being heated from the bottom, not from the sides, it won’t wear out nearly as fast. That means the cookware that you use on your induction cooker will last longer. Induction cookers are also very affordable, and they don’t take a lot of effort to install. This makes them ideal for those who love to cook but don’t have a lot of money or kitchen space to spare.
What are the best safety tips to follow when using an induction cooker in your home?
Induction cookers are generally very safe to use, but you should still take some precautions when using one. Always turn the power off when there’s no cookware on top of the cooking surface. Keep inflammable materials at least 3 feet away from your induction cooker. Use either steel or cast-iron cookware on the induction surface and never glass, ceramic, or aluminum. These tips should help you operate your induction cooker safely.
