What is an Induction Cooktop?
Since the early 1800’s, humans have used gas stoves to cook their food. Toward the beginning of the 1900s, we started using electric stoves as a heating element.
These days, however, there are other options to choose from.
One of the most popular cooking tools is the induction cooktop, which uses magnetic fields to create heat.
Huh? Magnetic fields?

Conventional gas burners cook food by generating heat that causes the pot or pan to get hotter.
An induction burner, on the other hand, does not heat up itself. Instead, it “connects” with the cookwear in a way that causes it to get hot without an external heat source.
Ultimately, this enables the user to cook without using excess energy. It also allows people to set their burner’s temperature more precisely, which makes them quite popular among chefs who depend on exact temperature settings.
The biggest downside of induction burners, of course, is that they don’t come with an oven. So, you won’t be able to use your induction setup to cook bread, cookies, or pizza.
And, you’ll have to buy special cookware, too. Because the system depends on magnetic connection, you’ll need special pots and pans if you want your device to cook properly.
