The Nesco Portable Induction Cooktop is user friendly and energy efficient. Its smooth, ceramic glass top wipes clean with ease. Five different modes with instant temperature adjustments make cooking virtually fail-safe. And, because the heat is generated in the pan, not the element, less energy is wasted than with gas or electric stoves. Use it in dorm rooms, offices, RV's, outdoors or in the kitchen.
An electric current passing through the inducton coil beneath the surface creates an electromagnetic field.
The electromagnetic field generates heat directly into ferrous metal cookware placed on the cooktop, bypassing the glass surface. So the pan gets hot - the cooktop doesn't.
