In this segment of Ask The Expert, Jerry Lee of Midland Appliances answers viewer questions about induction cooktops and the benefits of induction cooking. Keep reading for the expert-approved recap:
Q: Induction cooking has been around for a while; how does it work?
A: Induction cooktops target your pots and pans directly using an electromagnetic field, rather than radiant heat. This means your pots and pans will get heat faster and use less energy.
Q: What are some benefits of induction cooking?
A: Induction cooktops are extremely safe to use. They offer instantaneous power, which only targets the bottom of the pot. This means you can remove the pot while cooking, and the surface will not be hot to the touch. This makes an induction cooktop an ideal one for families with children and/or pets.
