Induction Hobs

Induction Hob

Using one of our induction hobs, you can quickly prepare warm, healthy, and tasty meals. Due to their energy, creative designs, and elegant appearance, induction hobs are great complements to contemporary kitchens. They are well-known for their quick cooking capabilities and ease of cleaning. The premium induction hobs have a function that detects bubbles and reduces the heat to prevent boiling over. Because an induction hob sends heat directly to your pan rather than the hot plate, we recommend pairing your induction hob with the appropriate cookware. Popular models from recognized companies such as Cuisinart, WMF, and Hendi are available. 

Induction hob pans

In order to use your new induction hob, you must have the suitable pots and pans. Pots and pans for induction are the future of cooking. They are more energy and time efficient than traditional cooking methods. They are more energy efficient because the way that induction cooking works is by transferring heat magnetically between the hob and the pan. This is also why it is required to have the right kind of pans, as not all pans work with induction hobs. Induction cooking hobs are easy to clean, scratch-resistant, and are available in a variety of sizes to fit all kinds of induction hob pans. 

What is an induction hob?

Induction hobs vary from all other hobs on the market in that they heat the pan directly rather than the hob ring. A magnetic field is activated under the surface of an induction hob when it is turned on. When you put a pan on the stove, the circuit is completed, and the pan's base heats up. Induction cooking is so quick and efficient because of this. All other hobs heat the ring first, then the pan, and finally, the food. However, induction cooking eliminates a step from the process.

How does an induction hob work?

When a cooking pot is put on top of an induction stove, an alternating electric current is transmitted through a coil of copper wire beneath the ceramic plate. The ensuing fluctuating magnetic field operates like a transformer's secondary winding. The pot is heated by an eddy current passing through its resistance. To put an eddy current simply, it is an electric current induced by an alternating magnetic field. Induction hobs transmit roughly 84% of energy compared to around 74% for gas or ceramic hobs, resulting in significant energy savings over time. Safety is also a vital difference, as there is no naked flame. 

How to clean induction hob

 Abrasive cleaners should never be used on stainless steel, glass, or on the control dials of your inductive hob. There is a risk of damaging the glass or steel, and also the possibility to remove the dial information from the hob if an abrasive cleaner or scrubber is used. 

Induction hobs vary from ceramic and gas in that they only heat the area where the pan hits the hob surface, not the area around the edge of the pan. If food spills on a gas or ceramic hob, there is a greater potential for the food to burn on the surface, making it significantly more difficult to clean. 

Because the surface around the pan will not be hot while using induction, it is feasible to clean the surface while still cooking on the stove, reducing the danger of burned on food and stains.

What pans for induction hob

Induction pans are available in a range of styles and patterns. However, at the very least, the foundation must be built of an iron-based magnetic substance to operate successfully with induction. Induction pans are frequently composed of lighter metals, such as aluminium, because cast iron is by far the finest induction performer, but it is heavy and often expensive. These lightweight metal pans wouldn't normally function on induction so, they're built with composite iron bases to ensure they do. There are several types of "sandwich" bases, but not all  of them operate equally well or properly transfer heat to the primary pan material.

Portable induction hob

Portable induction hobs feature flat glass surfaces that are heated by heaters and warm up faster than electric or gas hobs, making them more energy-efficient, faster to prepare food, and safer than open gas hobs. They may solve a variety of storage issues by providing an extra cooking hob or a location to make meals while you wait for a new stove. All you need to do is couple one with the finest induction pans, and you'll be able to make a quick meal no matter where you are.
