What is induction?

Induction is a technology used in various appliances, including cooktops. By utilizing magnetic fields, induction cooktops generate heat directly in the cookware, making them faster and more energy-efficient than other types of cooktops. Read more about induction below.

How does induction work?

The difference between induction and other cooktops is that induction cooktops have a spool beneath the surface. When an electric current passes through the spool, it generates a magnetic field. On an induction cooktop, only the pot or pan itself becomes hot when placed on a cooking zones. The actual cooktop surface only gets slightly warm because the magnetic field creates heat directly in the cookware. As a result, heat is utilized and distributed more efficiently within the cookware, resulting in less wasted heat.

Which pots and pans can be used on induction?

You need magnetic pots and pans for induction cooktops. Many pots and pans are magnetic or have a magnetic base, and can therefore be used for induction.

Ztoves pots and pans can be used for both regular induction cooktops or Ztoves induction cooktops. Ztove pots and pans have a 3-layer base with a magnetic layer in the middle, and can therefore be used for induction.

Energy saving and faster heating with induction

Induction technology heats up the cookware very quickly and is the most efficient heating technology for cooking. When you turn off a cooking zone, the heating stops instantly.

Most induction cooktops have a residual heat indicator and therefore you can advantageously turn off the cooktop a couple of minutes before serving, because the cookware retains the heat well. You save energy by reducing the time you need to have the cooktop turned on.

Induction is powerful and safe

You get faster and more precise heat regulation with induction cooktops compared to other types of cooktops. Induction cooktops offer increased safety, as the cooktop only heats up when cookware is placed on the cooking zones.

Easy Cleaning of Induction Cooktops

Cleaning an induction cooktop is surprisingly easy, thanks to the unique way induction cooktops operate. Unlike traditional cooktops where heat is transferred from the cooktop to the cookware, induction cooktops heat the cookware directly using an induction field. This means that the glass surface itself only becomes slightly warm during cooking.

The advantage of this is that if food or liquid spills on the cooktop during cooking, the risk of it burning onto the surface is minimal. This makes cleaning incredibly easy. All that is usually required is a damp cloth. You can simply wipe the surface with the cloth, effectively removing all food residues and spills without the need for harsh cleaning agents or intensive scrubbing. This saves both time and effort in the kitchen and keeps your induction cooktop in great condition.
