Press release   •   Dec 12, 2012 15:58 IST

The modern face of cooking has taken a quick turn. It has become fast, energy efficient and scientifically smart with the help of induction cooking. The principle used in this cooking method involves heating the cooking vessel directly as opposed to transferring heat from electric coils of gar burners to the cooking vessel.

A copper wire is placed under the cooking surface which acts as the main source of heat. Alternating current is passed through this copper coil and this creates current due to the formation of an oscillating magnetic field. The current creates heat that is used to cook food. The smart thing about this system is that a large amount of current is produced by low voltage. The induction cooker does not look like a gas burner or electric heater. What you see is a smooth surface that is made of glass-ceramic material. You must place your cooking utensils on this surface to cook the food you desire.

You can use various types of utensils on the induction stove. Use cook wares that have a high percentage of iron at the base. Iron and stainless steel react well to heat due to their permeable nature. If the utensils used for induction cooking have either of these substances at the contact point of the induction stove, then heating will be smooth and cooking will be faster. There are various ways to understand which utensils are suitable for induction cooking and which are not. Primarily those that are meant to work perfectly on an induction cooker are marked accordingly. There is a layman’s test too that tells you whether or not you can use a cook ware for induction cooking. If a vessel is marked for this type of cooking, then it should easily attract magnets. So next time you go to buy such vessels, this test might help you to select the proper ones.

Using an induction stove is simple and efficient. The cooking top does not get excessively heated, there is no fear of gas leakage and you do not need to worry about melting plastic vessels, if they are near the cooking top. However, there are a few things that can help you to use this cooking method to your greater advantage. Read the user manual carefully before you turn on the stove. Different models have different ways of switching them on. When you start cooking, be sure to regulate the heat. Since the sides of the utensils do not heat up as much as the bottom, you run the risk of burning food. So, be careful about the heat regulation on an induction stove. You also need to get adjusted with the timing.

If you are used to cooking on a gas burner and a particular dish takes 20 minutes to cook, you may note that the same dish would take much lesser time on the induction cooker. Cooking on an induction cooker is simple, fast, cost effective and energy efficient.
