Induction cooking and warming is 90% or more energy efficient (gas is only 45% efficient and electric is only 55% efficient). Due to this high efficiency, induction cooking is much faster than other methods of cooking. Since the energy is focused into the pan, not the room, the kitchen or dining area stays cool. Also, induction costs less to operate than other methods.
Can any pan be used?
It is important to purchase medium to high quality induction ready pans to maximize the potential and benefits of induction technology. We recommend 3, 5, and 7 ply pans to attain the best results. All pans must be ferromagnetic. Certain cast iron and steel pans will operate well with induction technology.
