What is induction cooker
Induction cooker uses induction heating technology to heat a cooking pot. On the other hand, in traditional cooking using LPG Gas, direct heat transfer from burning gas is used to heat the cooking vessel. A coil of copper wire is placed underneath the cooking pot of the induction cooker. When an a/c current flows through the copper coil, it produces the magnetic field which in turn induces an electric current in the cooking pot made up of ferromagnetic metal. Current flowing in the cooking pot produces resistive heating which heats the food.
Entire surface of the cooking pot is made up of non-induction material. Secondly, though the high current is produced, its produced at low voltage. Hence the user of the cook wear does not sense the heat / current / voltage.
An induction cooker is safer, cost effective, faster and more energy-efficient than traditional LPG stove / cooker. It allows instant control of cooking energy similar to gas burners.
