What is induction cooking?

Induction is the most advanced cooking technology available today. It cooks food faster than traditional stoves, is just as powerful, and is more precise. Plus no open flames means less heat is lost to the surrounding air, helping kitchens stay cooler. Induction technology eliminates the carbon monoxide and other toxins emitted by gas stoves.
