How to Use an Induction Range

Cooking with an induction range will cut your time in the kitchen so you can spend more time at the table.

Instructions

  • TIP: The magnetic field will be broken when you remove your cookware, automatically turning the burner off.
  • Step 1: Use your induction range frequently to get a feel for the difference in time it takes compared to cooking on a conventional range. For instance, you can boil 2 quarts of water using an induction range in half the time it would take using either a traditional electric or gas range. Enjoy quick, precise cooking!
  • FACT: British physicist and chemist Michael Faraday discovered the principle of electromagnetic induction in 1831.
  • Step 2: Turn off the temperature control and remove your cookware to a heat-resistant surface when your food is done. Unlike gas and electric ranges, the temperature on an induction range will change instantly.
  • TIP: Temperature controls on an induction range while similar to gas are even more precise, especially when it comes to simmering.
  • TIP: Companies that sell induction units sell pans specially designed to transfer the heat.
  • Step 3: Place your cookware directly onto the burner's magnetic rings.
  • Step 4: Turn the temperature control to your desired setting.
  • Step 5: Use cast iron or stainless steel cookware on your induction range. Glass, copper, and aluminum cookware won't conduct heat.
