Why Are Induction Cooktops Popular

One of the major reason for the popularity of induction cooktop is its speed only. It also cooks food faster because it directly heats the cookware. Induction cooking uses the principle of magnetic friction that bounces from surface of the cooktop to cookware placed on it. This magnetic construction of the cookware becomes an essential part of the electrical circuit. These cooktops are safe to use because unlike gas burners they don’t use any flame. The surface of the induction cooktop does not remain hot because there is the only residual heat that comes from the pan. It also allows you to clean the appliance easily and fast. To all those who want a very modern and neat kitchen, the induction cooktop is the best appliance with lots of features.
