What is an induction stove?
It is a stove that is powered by electricity flowing through a coil to produce a magnetic field under a ceramic cook top. When an iron or magnetic stainless pan is placed on the ceramic surface, currents are induced in the cooking vessel and instant heat is generated due to the resistance of the pan. Induction only works with cooking vessels or induction disks that are made from magnetic materials.
