Induction cookware heats a pan by magnetic induction, instead of by gas/flame as is the traditional form of cooking. Because inductive heating directly heats the vessel, very rapid increases in temperature can be achieved.
In an induction hob, a coil of copper wire is placed under the cooking pan. The resulting oscillating magnetic field induces a magnetic flux which repeatedly magnetises the pan, treating it like the lossy magnetic core of a transformer. This produces large eddy currents in the pan, which because of the resistance of the pot, heats it. Here at country kitchenware, we stock a huge range of induction cookware.
