What is Induction Cooking?
Induction cooking is an advanced cooking technology that uses electromagnetic energy to generate instant heat to the cookware. This provides faster heating times while using less energy that a conventional cooktop. With induction, the ceramic-glass surface stays cooler because heat is transferred directly to the cookware - not through the cooktop surface. Induction technology provides immediate response so heat can be increased or decreased quickly.
The Proof is in the Performance. KitchenAid induction cooktops are so responsive that they can quickly go from boil to simmer. Induction technology provides a more time and engery-efficient cooking method than gas or electronic cooktops. Induction technology helps make the ceramic-glass surface easy to clean - spills don't burn onto the cooktop. Sleek, integrated touch-activated electronic controls offer nine heat-level settings from keep warm to performance boost.
