Induction cooking can really change the way you cook for good as this superior cooking method can help you prepare your foods faster and even more efficiently when compared to more traditional electric and gas ranges. Gas and electric stoves heat the pans in an indirect way thus delivering an uneven heat that may affect your foods while induction cooking is all about generating a high-frequency electromagnetic field used to penetrate the cooking pans in a direct way thus releasing the necessary heat right to the foods contained by the pans.
The main benefits provided by induction coking include higher control and speed in your kitchen space, improved power and efficiency and advanced designs that can provide you with a wide range of cooking settings. Because your pans will be heated directly, you foods will be cooked more precisely and evenly while saving extra energy as well. This means that you will get lower energy bills and even a cooler kitchen space as an induction cook top will stay relatively cool to your touch. So, any spilled food isn’t burned on your cook top surface – this means that cleanup will become easier and even quicker. However, among all the benefits provided by an induction cook top, the safety feature is likely to be right at the top of this important list.
For instance, induction cook tops are to be regarded as the safest cooking method around mainly because their surface cannot get hot – only your cooking vessels will get hot when using your induction cook top. This way, your hot pots will radiate warmth back to the induction surface but this warmth will never be dangerous. Also, plastic utensils that may be lying on your induction cook cannot be melted; plus, metal utensils will not be accidentally heated when left on the induction burner/hot element. Since there will be no open flame or hot element when using an induction cook top, you will significantly reduce the risk of fat fires in your kitchen space.
Also, hot fat spilling or spitting will land right on a very cool cooking surface that cannot ignite. Some induction cook tops come with extra safety features that include the fact that they turn off before/once the oil in your pans is getting to an ignition temperature. When using an induction cook top, you reduce the danger of burns in a significant manner, especially for children. So, even if the cooking zone is touched immediately after you have removed your hot pot, the residual heat will not be sufficient in order to cause any damage. Additionally, some induction cook tops come with a residual heat indicator – this means that the cooking zone will not get active until you place a suitable pan or pot on the cooking surface. Their enhanced safety features make them wonderful appliances to be used in any modern kitchen.
