Innovation In The Kitchen—Induction Cooking

According to a new study by researchers at Stanford University, natural gas cooking stoves may emit methane—a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon dioxide—even when turned off. Climate activists, meanwhile, have increasingly pressed homeowners to switch to electric stoves, while cities like New York and Seattle have recently passed laws banning gas hookups in certain new buildings. That being said, so, what will be a good choice for efficient cooking now? Induction cooking may be the answer.

What is induction cooking?

Induction cooking uses electric currents to directly heat pots and pans through magnetic induction. Instead of using thermal conduction (a gas or electric element transferring heat from a burner to a pot or pan), induction heats the cooking vessel itself almost instantly. An electric current passes through a coiled copper wire underneath the cooking surface, creating a magnetic current throughout the cookware. And the best part is, the entire cooktop remains cool-to-the-touch so burns become less of a worry. Induction cooking is known to be more efficient than traditional cooking methods because very little heat energy is lost during the process and you can heat your cookware without heating your entire kitchen.

What are the benefits of induction cooking?

1. Boil 50% faster

Because induction creates instant heat within the metal of pots and pans, no heat is wasted in the process. This means water will boil up to 50% faster on induction cooktops* compared to electric cooktops. 

2. Precise temperature control

Induction allows you to control heat more precisely, as opposed to conduction (electric and gas cooktops). This better temperature control reduces the risk of over or under cooking. Consistent heat delivers tasty results every time.

3. Easy-to-clean surface

Induction has a smooth surface, much like modern electric cooktops. Almost immediately after you finish cooking, the cooktop itself will be cool enough to easily clean whatever mess is left behind.

4. Auto-sizing burners

Induction heats through an electromagnetic current passed into the pots and pans in use. Frigidaire induction cooktops use Auto Sizing™ pan detection to place heat where it’s needed, by automatically adjusting to cookware size.
