Popular in Europe for many years, Induction cooking is now taking America by storm. Without getting too “geeky”, induction cooking heats cooking vessels by magnetic induction, instead of thermal conduction from a flame or an electrical element. Because inductive heating directly heats the vessel, very rapid increases and decreases in temperature can be achieved. Another major benefit of induction cooking is the cooktop remains cool because all of the energy is being transferred directly into the bottom of the vessel. Induction technology provides startling precision, power and efficiency, with up to 40% more efficient use of energy.
