Induction cooking is most efficient, precise and safest cooking methods available to-day. It uses Electromagnetic energy, the first known form of energy in the universe. Induction Cooktop uses this electromagnetic energy to heat cookware made of magnetic material (steel, iron, nickel or various alloys). Induction coil in the cook top produce a high frequency alternating magnetic field, which flows through the cookware when the unit is switched on.Molecules in the cookware are agitated causing the cookware to become hot and cook the food but the the cooktop’s glass-ceramic surface doesn’t get hot as it is unaffected by the magnetic field since it contains no magnetic material. Since magnetic quality of the cookware reacts and becomes part of the electrical circuit,the system switches off automatically when the vessel is removed from the cook top.
Induction cooking offers the following benefits
Cooler working environment : Since heat is generated only on the pan and all heat are transferred directly for cooking the food.No ambient heat is produced.This reduce cooling cost of the kitchen.
Easier to clean : Since the cook top are flat and does not generate its own heat, the induction cooktop has no grates or carbon buildup to clean.Just a damp cloth is sufficient to clean the spills.Utensils themselves stay cleaner longer.
Faster cooking : Since induction coil heats very fast and the energy is transferred directly to the cookware, cooking time is reduced drastically when compared to gas or electric stove.
Improved safety : Since there is no open flame, red-hot coil or other radiant heat accidental fire in kitchen is eliminated.When the pan is removed, the surface cools many times faster than the electric or gas range stoves.Proof of this is that you can boil water with a piece of paper placed between your pot and the cooktop, without the paper igniting.
Speed : Since the energy is transferred directly from the cook surface in to the cookware, the utensil heats faster than electric or gas ranges. In the food service industry time is money and a faster cooking surface results in shorter preparation time.
Even Heating : Because the bottom of the cookware heats uniformly hot spots and rings are avoided.
Energy efficient and Cheaper :Traditional electric cooktop sends 65% of its energy into your cookware and the other 35% off into space. Since the induction cookware directs energy right into the cookware, 90% of your energy dollar goes into heating your food.
Easy Control : With induction cooking, when you reduce the temperature, the magnetic energy immediately reduces and so does the temperature of the cookware.
Cookware runs the gamut — from stainless steel to cast iron to anodized aluminum, copper and coated cast iron — and many more. Rita’s got some favorite cookware that she recommends. Her enamel coated cookware, the 100 year old cast iron skillet handed down from her mother and the new anodized aluminum pans. Cookware sets will be big gifts this Christmas and all year long for birthdays and other occasions. What’s the difference between professional sets and affordable discount sets?

Thinking: Why Kitchen appliances industry so dispersed? – Induction cooker, microwave oven – HC netw
Article by hi joiney
Kitchen appliance industry is a relatively fragmented industry, in recent years, various brands during the expansion of the market, the industry reshuffle is also accelerating. A strange phenomenon is that all major home appliances into the kitchen appliances industry, such as Haier, Midea, Siemens, etc., but ranks first in the industry groups or to professional kitchen appliances for the obvious features of the side too, Vantage, Shuaikang boss and so on, while there are considerable advantages in regional markets in the vanguard, Schindler, Vinci and other enterprises. Kitchen to understand the characteristics of the industry, looking for industry development opportunities, we must first answer the question: Why Kitchen & Bath industry so dispersed. It is with the microwave oven, induction cooker, electric fans, etc. What is the difference small household electrical appliances, and color TV sets, refrigerators and other large electricity will be no different. 1, “contacts” between between standardization and personalization Means to reach the so-called degrees, refers to products or services, trading and consumption process, the need for interaction between buyer and seller and the extent of exposure. For example, industrial equipment, software, technical training, etc. All these require the providers and those who buy to sell more in-depth contact, transaction can be successfully accomplished, the customer can truly value. The drinks, TV, rice cookers and other products, consumers get the products they use, then a low degree of contact with the product. So-called personalized, consumer demand, the product is the degree of differentiation. And personality is relatively standardized. In general, standardized products that are easy scale production, competitive price advantage means, personalized products, often small-batch production management to the pursuit of higher gross profit as the main competitive advantage. In general, access to low standardized products, and personalized products and high touch. Dispersion of the industry, often with the channel access to product reliability and considerable personal relationship. In general, the means to reach high product, the channel level on short, manufacturers and consumers closer relations, the importance of sales and service personnel more. Low access for the products, brokers relatively high level, the importance of brand and price factors more. High contact with the product, is generally not easy to concentrate, low contact with the product, very easy to concentrate. It can understand why high-end clothing often Direct mainly because of their personal strength. Specific to the small appliance industry, we can understand why the microwave oven, rice cooker with a high concentration and low concentration of kitchen appliances. The relevant cabinet, its concentration is even lower. Electrical appliances in the kitchen, the water heater comparison, the low level of personalization, so easier to focus some. The range hood, a relatively high degree of personalization, the relatively weak degree of concentration. Some companies trying to integrate the kitchen appliances industry, to enhance their concentration. The trend is positive, but if you do not understand the degree of exposure to kitchen appliances and personal characteristics. It may take unnecessary long. For example, in the usual way the industry reshuffle, the introduction of cost-effective special products to scale and means to shuffle kitchen appliances, you may experience some difficulties. Why? This requires us to understand the characteristics of consumer demand for kitchen appliances is. Second, the demand characteristics of kitchen appliances Kitchen appliance needs of the following characteristics: 1, demand for branding and upgrading can Along with the development of real estate, the people on the quality of family life, more and more attention. And property prices have been rising, more and more people enjoy the quality of the property must be brought to the kitchen, bathroom renovation and the quality of product demand. Therefore, the requirements of kitchen and bathroom product brand is an inevitable trend. 2, consumer demand determines the purchasing budget and is proportional to the value of property Is because people on the pursuit of quality of life, determines the purchase of kitchen appliances in the purchase budget and positive correlation between the value of the house.
