What is induction cooking and how does it work?
What is the difference between a convection oven and induction oven?
- The word convection refers to convection ovens, and induction refers to induction cooktops. A convection oven is an oven that contains a fan, usually in the back of the heating space, that circulates air around the oven interior in order to distribute the heat more rapidly and evenly.
What is the difference between magnets and induction cooking?
- Magnets excite metallic pans to create heat. Pans essentially become burners, eliminating heat transfer through the glass cooktop surface unlike regular electric cooking, thus making it more efficient and safer. Induction cooking is available in a single "burner" or heating zone, a cooktop with multiple heating zones, or a range.
Can induction cookware be used on other stoves?
- Induction compatible cookware for an induction cooking surface can nearly always be used on other stoves. Some cookware or packaging is marked with symbols to indicate compatibility with induction, gas, or electric heat.
