The Magic of Cooking with A Portable Induction Cooktop

Curious about induction cooking?

There’s a lot to love about induction cooking and cooking with a portable cooktop has some real advantages. These fancy, futuristic looking and almost magical appliances offer sleek designs, with a smooth glass surface. Loved by chefs and food stylist, the portable induction cooktop is changing the cooking game- with its many time-and money-saving benefits.

Portable induction cooktops are an excellent option for cooks looking to add extra cooking surfaces, when there are extra mouths to feed during the holidays, parties and when catering for other large gatherings.  If you have a small kitchen and need to maximize your space, you can easily tuck it away in a cabinet when you’re not using it making it the perfect space saving appliance for dorms, boats, patios, and RVs. 

Unlike stovetops that rely on a gas burning flame to provide heat, an induction burner contains an electric coil that produces a magnetic field when turned on to directly and quickly heat the pan. The induction burner will only heat induction compatible cookware.  Induction cooktops use about 10 percent less energy because only the metal of the pan will heat up so all the energy goes directly into the cookware. Therefore, induction cooking is more energy efficient than cooking with a standard gas or electric cooktop.

We are fans of the portable induction cooktop when safety is concerned- especially with kids and pets in the home.  The lack of an open flame and the fact the burner almost immediately cools down ensures its safety factor.

Plus, induction cooktops have several safety features like child-safety lock, pan detection and auto-shut off increasing their safety.

Another great perk of the portable induction cooktop is its sleek surface that is easy to clean.  Because it generates little heat, there’s less cooking splatters and food doesn’t bake into the surface. Plus, with zero nooks to scrub, cleaning is simply a breeze. 

Last but not least, its incredible function is matched by its aesthetic. The induction cooktop is an attractive addition to any kitchen.   While this form of cooking is more popular in Europe, its popularity is growing in the U.S. and justifiably so.
