Darchelle Meunier Cooktops February 25, 2019 08:56:44
This is where Induction cooktops spark the interest of my customers who want the performance of a professional rangetop, but want something easy to clean. Induction - or magnetic induction - works on the molecular level. The magnet creates friction in the cooking vessel (ferrous metal pots and pans are necessary - if a magnet sticks to it, you are good to go) creating the most efficient source of heat at more than 90 % efficiency. Gas cooktops are about 60 percent efficient, depending on the model. Back to the cleaning issue... Because there is no heat passing through the ceramic glass on the induction models, they are a breeze to clean. You don`t have the usual burning in on the surface as you do with radiant smoothtop or gas cooktops. Soap and water usually does the trick to clean the induction top.
Induction cooktops basically create electromagnetic reactions between the cooking zone and the pot. This means that the cooktops utilize magnetic reactions to create heat that enables you to do your cooking. Unlike electric cooktops that heat cooking zones before transferring the heat to your pot, the induction ones create heat with the pot making the cooking fast, energy efficient and safe too. These cooktops are available in a wide range of designs, sizes and features and to get the best you would need to make proper determinations. But even before you make your purchase, there are important things you should know about the cooktops so you are able to decide whether they are worth the purchase or not.
