Induction cooking tips

  • Induction stoves heat up quickly. Preheating your pan is not necessary, and you don’t need to wait as long to heat up the pot or pan.
  • You can overcook food because induction cooks fast.
  • When you lift the pan off the cooktop, the power turns off.
  • Magnetic cookware is needed for induction to work. Place a magnet on the bottom of our pan. The stronger the magnet sticks to the bottom of the pan, the better the cookware will work with induction.
