About Induction Hob Frying Pan
Induction hobs provide an easy to clean, practical solution to cooking. By transferring almost all of the heat direct to the pan, induction cooking wastes little energy and is an excellent way of cutting down on utility costs. The hobs are also popular because of their ability to heat up and cool down rapidly, unlike electric hobs which can be difficult to control. However, not all cookware is suitable for using on an induction hob. When choosing a frying pan, you will need to check whether the materials used in the pan's construction are compatible with your hob.
Frying pans are available in a huge variety of sizes, and the designs can differ enormously depending on the purpose of the pan. Smaller pans are ideal for cooking food in small or individual portions, such as pancakes and fried eggs. Larger styles are capable of cooking greater quantities of food and can be used for meat, fish and vegetables, as well as one-pot meals such as stir-fries. Many pans are suitable for dishwasher use, while others must be hand washed in order to protect the surface.
Induction heating is enabled by the magnetic conduction between the pan and the hob. As a result, induction hob frying pans must have either a cast iron or stainless steel base. Despite this restriction, there is a wide variety of pans on the market. As the high temperatures of frying tend to cause food to burn and stick, non-stick varieties are a popular choice. These can be anodised or coated with a substance such as Teflon, which will make the maintenance of your pan easier.
