A Small Induction Cooktop Makes Cooking Quick and Easy

Our society is fast-paced, always on-the-go and in need of good food – fast. More and more items can be cooked in the microwave. Driving through fast food restaurants is becoming exceedingly popular – especially since many are switching their focus toward enticing healthier menu options.

Some days, it is easier to avoid ever walking into your kitchen to cook, right?

It is time to make a change. By making the decision to purchase an induction cooktop, you are giving yourself an opportunity to eat real food, cooked in a healthy manner, at record speeds.

Are you ready to cook faster with a small induction cooktop?

How Induction Cooking Works

Induction cooking works using a magnetic field. The magnet within the cooktop and that within the cookware, work to create the heat to cook your food. Copper wire underneath the surface works with a pot or pan made of the appropriate metal to create an alternating current of electricity that passes through the coils and straight to the cookware.

Because there is no physical transfer of heat, the air between the pan and the cooktop surface (and throughout your kitchen) remains cool. You can even lift a pan of boiling water and place your hand in its place – and it will be cool to the touch.

The Speed of Cooking

Now that you have a basic idea of how induction cooking works, let’s look at how it can benefit you and your need for speed in the kitchen. If you want to cook faster, you need appliances that will keep up with you, right?

An induction cooktop can heat a 5-gallon pot of water to boiling much faster than an electric or a gas stove can. Now, that’s impressive – especially since gas stoves have direct heat-to-pan contact.

The best part is the fact that the induction cooktop provides you with easy cleanup. It is no longer necessary for you to waste time scrubbing burnt spills on your cooktop. With induction cooking, the surface never gets hot – which means you will never end up with crusty spills to clean. Talk about a time-saver!

Perfect for Large Families

If you have a large family, then you know the difficulty of cooking enough food. Your family doesn’t even have to be too large to warrant more space. If you have teenage boys or picky young ones, you may find yourself making either an overabundance of food – or various different meals to appease all the taste buds.

Does any of this sound like you? If so, then you know that the more burners you have, the better. Imagine having four burners that cook at fast speeds. That is what you will get with a small induction cooktop.

Safe for those with Small Children

While you go speeding around your kitchen trying to make dinner and get it on the table before it all turns cold, you may forget for a moment that you must look out for the safety of small children. It is easy to overlook a hot surface from a burner you just used, for example. One touch and your child will be spending a few hours in the Emergency Room.

Imagine if you could avoid this – and keep your children safe from burns. An induction cooktop remains cool to the touch.

Convenient for Hosting

Is your kitchen the go-to kitchen among your friends and family? Do you always find yourself playing host? If so, then you are going to want some burners you can count on. And, because sometimes social gatherings can happen without much notice, the faster you can whip up something in the kitchen, the better.

One thing that always becomes a frustration during these types of get-togethers is that – with everyone piling in the kitchen – it can get a bit warm. Add some heat from cooking to the mix and you will find that you and your guests will be sweating.

Great news – a small induction cooktop doesn’t produce heat like an electric or gas cooktop does. So, you can save yourself some energy while keeping cool in your kitchen.
