Inductions; The Best Option In Stores

How does it work

In an induction cooktop a coil of copper wire is placed under the cooking vessel. Then AC current is passed to the pot through it. For this an oscillating magnetic field creates a magnetic flux. This flux magnetizes the pot repeatedly. But the pot continuously resists the flux. As a result, the pot gets heated and cooks the foods in it.

What materials are used to build it

Normally it is best to use metals which are magnetic in nature. So Cast Iron or Stainless Steel is best suited for it. But that does not mean only these two metals are used to build a cooking pan to be used on an induction cooktop. Carbon Steel and Copper are also used for this purpose. Even Granite and Stone are being used to make induction pans these days. If you ask us about the best choice to make, we will tell you that you should choose a cookware made of stainless steel which also has cast iron or copper layer beneath it. The cast iron layer will give you the best ferromagnetic quality and the stainless steel will provide you a never before seen non stick experience.
