The Benefits of Induction Cooking

Induction cooking has the power to revolutionize your cooking experience. Induction technology uses magnetic currents to directly heat your pots and pans, instead of the cooktop. Cooking with induction makes mealtime easier with quicker heat, precise control, and easy cleanup.

Why is induction cooking better than gas or electric?

When it comes to cooktops, gas and electric heating elements have long ruled the kitchen. Electric cooktops are typically easy to clean, while gas provides even heat across your cookware.  Induction cooktops  combine the best of both worlds – they’re easier to clean than electric and provide heat that is as consistent as gas. Induction also provides unique benefits not found in any other form of cooking.Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of induction cooktops.

What are the benefits of induction cooking?

While there are many reasons induction technology can be superior to more conventional cooking appliances, these are the four main benefits of an induction cooktop:

1. Faster Meal Prep

With induction, heat is transferred directly to your cookware, not the surface of the cooktop. This means food heats up and water boils 50% faster* on induction cooktops when compared to electric or gas cooktops.

2. Consistent, Delicious results

With induction cooktops, you can control the temperature more precisely than gas or electric. This better temperature control delivers consistent results, reducing the risk of over or under cooking. Consistent heat delivers tasty and repeatable results every time.

3. Easy-to-clean 

Much like traditional electric cooktops, induction cooktops have a smooth, glass cooktop. However, since induction burners don’t heat the surface of the cooktop, any spills, splatters, or occasional boil-overs won’t burn onto the cooktop. Almost immediately after you finish cooking, the cooktop will be cool enough to easily clean whatever mess is left behind.

4. Always the Right Fit

Frigidaire induction cooktops use Auto Sizing™ pan detection to place heat right where you need it. By automatically adjusting to the size of your cookware, no energy is wasted in the process.

Is induction cooking safe?

Safety should always be a concern when you are considering a new appliance to bring into your home. Cooktops and ranges are designed to create heat, and induction is no different. Since induction heats your cookware directly, as opposed to the cooktop surface, the surface won’t get hot until the right cookware is placed in the cooking zone. It also cools down much more quickly than traditional gas or electric cooktops.

This can be an important factor for families with children in their home. Induction elements shut down automatically when a pot or pan is removed from the cooktop, thereby reducing the risk of accidentally leaving a burner on.
