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.
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.
