Saving energy with induction cooker
As electricity tariff is high and the cost of gas is also skyrocketing, an induction cooker or stovetop is the best bet during this economic downturn.
An induction cooker works by producing a quick alternating magnetic field, which induces small, swirling electric currents in the vessel’s metal base, causing it to heat up. The pot or pan heats up while the hob itself remains cool.
Induction cookers are the most energy efficient option for cooking and they are fast, responsive and sustainable. They are 5-10 percent more energy-efficient than conventional electric stoves or and about three times more efficient than gas stoves.
Induction Cooker Vs Hotplate
The key difference between a hotplate and induction cooker is that the hotplate uses heat produced by either electricity or gas for the cooking, while the induction cooker uses radiation to cook.
Technology of Induction cooker
Induction cooker technology uses magnetic currents to directly heat your pots and pans, instead of the cooktop. Cooking with induction makes mealtime easier with quicker heat, precise control, and easy cleanup.
Safety of Induction Cookers
. They are safe for indoor air quality
. They have a built-in safety feature such that if the burner is turned on with no pot on it, it won’t get hot as the pot or pan is what activates it to heat.
Types of Induction Cooker
. Single Element Induction cooker – has only a single cooking top.
. Multi-element Induction cooker – has two or more cooking tops.
. Built-in Induction Hob – effective built-in induction cookers make a great upgrade option for those who are hoping to move away from things like old gas stoves.
