From Popular Chefs to You at Home

August 24, 2016

Induction cooking—already popular with professional chefs—is gaining popularity due to the dramatically shortened amount of time needed to preheat or cook food on the stovetop

Just think ---- making a "special" dinner after a long workday won't be such a chore!

There are other aspects to induction stovetops that appeal to users as well such as potentially more heat, precise temperature control, and energy efficiency (more energy goes toward the actual cooking rather than being lost into the surrounding environment, thus cooking the food faster). Plus, it's a boon for households with small kids

The cooktop remains cool to the touch no matter how high the temperature it's on due to the nature of electromagnetism. And, because the stovetop stays cool, any spilt food will neither stain nor get baked onto the surface --- it can merely be wiped away for easy maintenance

Finally, for anyone living in hot climes, induction cooking keeps kitchens cooler, as almost all of the energy magnetically pours into the vessel and not the atmosphere. While the transition from conventional electric or gas burners to induction is easy, there are a couple of considerations to keep in mind

A conventional stovetop uses either gas or electricity to heat a burner, coil, or bulb whereas the induction range's electromagnetism turns the pot or pan itself into a heat generator. But not every pot or pan will work with induction heat: The pot or pan must have a flat bottom so that direct contact can be made between the surfaces and, most importantly, it must be made of magnetic material

Ideally the cookware will be made of cast iron or stainless steel. Reputable companies such as Viking, All-Clad, Staub and Le Creuset all specify which products are induction-compatible

But if purchasing brand new cookware is not a realistic option or you just want to be frugal, how can you tell if your current pans can be used on an induction cooktop?

Simply place a small magnet on the base and see if it sticks to the surface. If it does, the cookware will work with induction heat. If you need to purchase new cookware, make sure it's compatible with induction cooking
