Experiments in Induction Cooking
Check out www.yuppiechef.com/cookingschool We've had a number of people asking just how induction cooking works so we decided to put a little video together to illustrate the genius of it all. Induction pans are made of ferromagnetic metal. Induction hobs have electromagnets in them and when they're turned on the induction cookware on the hob essentially turns into the element and gets hot - quickly! The amazing thing is that the actual hob surface doesn't get hot aside from a bit of reflected heat. This makes induction cooking fast, energy efficient and far safer to use than conventional stove tops or gas burners.
