Cooking technology continues to evolve as consumers look for more efficient ways to cook. The fastest way to achieve chef level results at home is with induction. Induction cooking is activated when a magnetic pot or pan comes in contact with the magnets of the burner creating a magnetic field. The energy created then does exactly what we want it to do – heat the pan. For years this has been the preferred electric cooking method in Europe and for the last 5 years induction is gaining a lot of popularity in the US, thanks to its efficiency, speed, control, keen safety features and minimalistic design. Plus, built with ceramic or glass surfaces, induction cooktops are easy be clean with a simple damp cloth. When compared to gas, induction is 80% more efficient, it is even more efficient than the leading electric cooktops.
