7 Incredible Benefits of Induction Cooking

My husband and I are currently building a home in Saint Augustine and couldn't decide weather gas or electric was the way to go. I read an article about Induction cooking as one of the latest innovations in home kitchen technology. Apparently, these systems use electromagnetic induction to heat the pan or pot instead of using traditional methods like gas or electric burners.

It allows us to save energy and time and prepare healthy meals with fewer calories. I learned about the seven incredible benefits of induction cooking and how you can start saving money and improving your health with induction cooking today!

1. Speed

Induction cooking is simply the fastest way to cook. Utilizing this form of cooking, you can cook food in half the time compared to a traditional gas or electric stove.

Food that takes 25 minutes in a pot on the stove only takes 4-6 minutes in an induction cooker! Plus, induction cooking has little or no splash risk for the people cooking and those in the kitchen!

2. Energy Efficiency

 Induction cooking saves on energy costs by up to 50%. It heats the cookware only, unlike traditional gas or electric ranges, which heat the cookware and the surrounding environment.

 It leads to faster, more energy-efficient cooking. The pot or pan you use will heat up quickly on an induction cooktop.

Induction cooking generates electromagnetic fields that pass through the pot or pan before any other metal surface has a chance to warm up. It takes less time for food to reach the desired temperature. Makes cleaning super easy! No more stuck burned food!

3. Safety

As for safety, induction cooktops are made with ceramic glass panels and work on magnetic fields. You can keep your pots and pans on the surface without worrying about them tipping over.

It is also safe as it does not produce any sparks or flames. Furthermore, this type of cooking has no open flame, and you are never exposed to intense heat. It's a great choice for households with small children or anyone who might be safety-conscious in the kitchen.

4. Saves on Space

Smaller Induction cooktops are versatile and efficient equipment you can install in almost any location. An induction cooktop saves space by reducing the number of pots and pans needed, thus allowing for more dishes to be stored in the same space.

It means you will not have to worry about the electric cords getting in the way or taking up valuable space in your kitchen, as traditional electric cookers do.

5. Cost Saving

In the last decade, induction cooking has become one of the most efficient, cost-saving technologies available. The average homeowner can save around $300 per year in energy costs.

6. Satisfying Cooking Experience

Induction cooking is an amazing new way to cook! It is easy and convenient. With induction cooking, a person can use anything from deep frying pans to delicate saucepans, as long as it has a magnetic base allowing versatility and greater creative freedom.

It works well for delicate dishes that might be unevenly heated or suffer from scorching if they come into contact with a direct flame, like eggs or crepes.

7. Precise Temperature Control

Unlike microwaves or traditional burners, induction cooking is highly efficient and cooks your food evenly. It makes it much easier to control the temperature than just having one setting for boiling water, leading to uneven heating across the surface.

 

Final Thoughts

One day, when we finally get this house built, I will let you know how well my cooktop worked!
