Induction cooking is soon becoming the new norm all across the globe. There are various reasons for this drastic change in the way household cooking works. And induction cooking also has a vast number of advantages over traditional cooking that makes it popular among the common masses. Induction cooktops have become more and more common in middle class and lower-class Indian households.
Induction cooking is often quite faster when comparing heating with traditional gas cooking. It is one of the most important features of induction cooktops. Induction cooktops also provide very precise control over the heating and the temperature of the cooktop while cooking, much like traditional gas cooking. Induction cooktops have much better thermal efficiency. What this means is that they produce significantly more heat in the same energy in comparison to traditional gas burners. They are far more energy efficient and therefore, preferred over traditional cooking methods these days. Another important factor is the consistency that these cooktops provide over traditional gas burners. Even though gas cooktops are also quite reliable, their dependency over a separate fuel source makes them less reliable than induction cooktops which run over electricity, that powers the rest of the household. And while gas cooktops have been very much in demand over the years, their likability and utility is substituted with induction cooktops pretty fast. With the need to use green methods of cooking and consumption, induction cooktops are definitely the more preferred type of cooking method over the traditional gas cooktops.
In any typical induction cooktop, a coil of copper wire is placed underneath the cooking pot. This wire is then made to conduct and alternating current which results in an oscillating magnetic field which induces an electric current in the pot. This produces a large eddy current in the pot which flows through the resistance of the pot and results in resistive heating of the cooking pot. For almost all typical models of induction cooktops, the cooking vessel used with it must either be made up of, or have a ferrous metal like cast iron or stainless steel. This is important for the proper heating up of the vessel and therefore important to the cooking of the food inside the vessel. The ferrous substance of the vessel makes sure that the current that produces the heat is concentrated, and hence the metal heats up properly. Most typical induction cooktops do not work well with copper or aluminum vessels because they do a poor job of concentrating the current and hence, do not heat up properly.
