Induction Cookware

An induction cooker transfers electrical energy by induction from a coil of wire into a metal vessel that must be ferromagnetic. The coil is mounted under the cooking surface, and a large alternating current is passed through it. The current creates a dynamic magnetic field. When an electrically conductive pot is brought close to the cooking surface, the magnetic field induces eddy currents in the cookware. The eddy currents flow through the electrical resistance of the cookware to produce heat; the cookware then in turn heats its contents by heat conduction.
