Induction cooking has grown in popularity in recent years, and for good reason. This energy efficient method of cooking is perfect for households wanting to save on utility bills while enjoying delicious meals, quite literally at the touch of a button.

Revolutionize Mealtimes With Induction Cooking

Induction cooking enables you to cook delicious and nutritious meals faster and more efficiently than conventional stovetops, and offers additional benefits that will revolutionize your mealtimes.

What exactly is induction cooking and how does it work?

Induction technology uses electromagnetic currents to heat cookware and its contents. An active magnetic field is generated when the coiled element mounted beneath the surface of the induction appliance interacts with the magnetic metal present in the cookware, supplying heat directly to the cookware via high frequency electrical currents.

To see if your cookware is induction-compatible, place a magnet on the base of your pots and pans. If it sticks, the magnetized base is compatible with your induction cooker.

Now that you know how induction technology works, let’s explore the benefits of induction cooking. In addition to being a sophisticated heating method for the modern home, induction cooking is:


Induction brings a pot of water to the boil in nearly half the time it would take using conventional cooktops. Since heat is transferred directly to your cookware and not the surrounding surface of the cooktop, it heats up almost instantaneously and food is able to cook quickly and efficiently. Save precious time preparing fresh, healthy and delicious meals for you and your family!


Induction cookers are truly energy efficient, and thus cost-effective. By using far less electricity than conventional stovetops, induction cookers allow you to save money on utility bills and conserve energy.


When considering a new appliance for your home, safety should be a significant factor in your decision. Induction transfers heat directly to the cookware, so the surface stays cool to the touch until induction-compatible cookware is placed within the cooking zone. The surrounding area remains cool, aiding burn prevention. The “instant off” temperature control function shuts the appliance down instantly, cooling it and preventing food from overheating or boiling over, and the removal of pots and pans from the induction zone instantly cools the surface. Induction cookers are gas and flame-free, greatly minimizing the risk of fire and related accidents.


Induction cookers offer unparalleled precision when it comes to temperature control and a range of settings suited to various cooking methods. Within seconds, you can go from searing steak to melting chocolate without dealing with residual heat as you adjust the temperature. The ability to cook food at stable temperatures reduces the risk of over or under cooking by distributing heat evenly, and results in reliably tasty meals that you can repeat in future with consistent results.
