What dishes are suitable for induction plates
For the appearance of an induction panel in the house, it is necessary to prepare not only your wallet, but also the kitchen: say goodbye to the old electric or gas tiles, prepare a place to accommodate a new hob and make an audit of the dishes. What kind of pots and pans there will be a place in the updated space, and what will you have to refuse?
Unlike electric and gas slabs, the induction hob does not heat up itself, then to transfer the heat of the pan on it then. It operates on the principle of electromagnetic induction.
- When the burner is turned on, the coil located under the ceramic case of the hob, forms the magnetic field.
- The vortex current emanating from it penetrates the bottom of the dishes standing on the plate.
- Under the action of the current, the bottom heats up.
- The heat created directly in the bowl is partially transmitted to Korke back.
The advantages of the induction surface are based on this principle:
- Kitchen utensils are heated very quickly;
- The time to cook food is reduced;
- Less energy is consumed;
- Safety increases, since the main part of the surface remains cold;
- The risk of fire is reduced;
- Care is simplified, because the food that has fallen on the panel does not burn.
Why I Cook With Induction
In order for the induction stove to heat any object, its bottom should absorb the energy of the magnetic field. Not all substances and materials are capable of this. Therefore, the utensils used on the induction panels have special requirements. What dishes can be used?
The principle of operation of induction plates
Unlike gas or spiral electric plates operating on the principle of direct heating, induction hobs create induced electro-magnetic vortex flows inside the bottom of the dishes, due to which the dishes and its contents are heated, and the hob remains cold.

WMF can be recognized by a special icon in the form of a spiral or inscription “Induction“
To make food on the induction stove, you need dishes, the base of which passes electromagnetic waves and has ferromagnetic properties. These are cast iron, steel and enameled metal pots. Aluminum, copper, heat.Resistant glass, ceramics and Faoim are not magnetized, but some manufacturers integrate a special magnetic disk into the bottom of the dishes from these materials so that it can be used on induction hobs.
You can recognize dishes for induction plates by a special icon in the form of a spiral or inscription “Induction“. Marking is usually located at the bottom of the products from the outside and on the packaging box.
Dishes for an induction stove should have a bottom thickness of at least 5 mm. The thicker the bottom, the better. The food will prepare faster and more uniformly. It is difficult to prepare on dishes with a deformed or very thin bottom. Food can burn food from above, remaining raw inside. Well, if the sizes of the dishes correspond to the diameter of the burner. Pan or pan can be slightly smaller, but not much. Ideally, the burner should be busy at least 70%.
It is also possible to use your favorite dishes that does not have ferromagnetic properties on an induction stove. For this you need to purchase a special adapter in the form of a flat steel disk with a handle. The disk is placed on the turn of the induction stove, and a Turk or any other “non.Induction” dishes are placed on top. The disk is heated. The dishes are heated behind it and its contents are prepared in the usual way.
How induction dishes are denoted
The manufacturer applies the marking to the bottom if there is a magnetized liner in it. This is a guarantee that the container will perceive the induced magnetic field. To indicate the ability to create vortex currents, generally accepted emblems are used, there are no language barriers for images, they are perceived at an intuitive level of similarity with well.Known signs.
Dishes suitable for heating using magnetic induction are made of steel of various markings.
Important! Sellers sometimes give out induction pots, stewpan, teapots, pans intended for other types of plates. Buyers must be able to recognize manufacturers icons, so as not to make a mistake with the choice.
What should you refuse
Before choosing a new dishes for an induction stove, you need to study the material from which it is made. If the bottom contains ferromagnetic alloys, then there are no problems, such products (in accordance with the basic requirements) can be purchased. And which products are not suitable for cooking?
- Ceramic dishes for induction plates are absolutely useless, you can store food, but it will not heat up.
- Glass products.
- Aluminum pots, pans, if steel is not present as part of the metal, this nuance can be clarified by the seller, or familiarize yourself with the information on the packaging.
- Copper dishes, like aluminum, is suitable only with a magnetic alloy at the bottom.
- Brass products react to a magnet, but there are too few ferromagnetic particles. This is expressed in the slow and weak heating of the bottom, therefore, in long cooking. Such dishes can be suitable, but the use will be extremely uncomfortable.
Features of care
Every housewife wants the hob to look longer as new. But few people like to spend free time for cleaning and cleaning.
Electric hobs requires more attention. And the reason is again that it heats up. If something spills on the hot surface, then it will surely suck. So, you will have to spend time and effort on the elimination of the consequences. And this is a minus.
At the same time, if the electric panel has a glass of glass ceramics, it is recommended to clean it only with special means. Usually they are available in the form of creams or sprays. A scraper is also useful. You can not use metal, excessively hard sponges, brushes, as well as abrasive products. All this can leave scratches on glass ceramics.
Induction devices are also often made of glass ceramic. However, they get less dirty, nothing will be buried for them almost never. All because such models almost do not heat up during cooking. If something spilled on the surface or falls, it is usually just wipe it with a soft rag. And this is a big plus.
Both models are advised to wash only after complete cooling.
The principle of operation of the induction slab
The work of the induction stove remotely resembles the work of the transformer. Under the glass.Ceramic surface is an induction type copper coil in which a current flows from 20 to 10 kHz. This coil plays the role of the primary winding, and the role of secondary. The bottom of the pan. When the pan is placed on the burner, magnetic induction occurs between the bottom and the coil, and the flowing current heats the pan.
During operation of the plate, the glass.Ceramic surface also heats up, however, it occurs not due to induction, but from the hot surface of the dishes.
How to care for induction dishes
The implementation of specialized care depends solely on what material the dishes are made. But still, you use the dishwasher when leaving, not paying attention to what food was used in the preparation of the dish.
If your pan or pan is made of cast iron, then you should remember that it is necessary to thoroughly dry the item without leaving any signs of moisture. This is due to the fact that traces of corrosion may appear on this material, in this regard, drying is the main condition for leaving.
Kitchen utensils should not be subject to even the slightest deformation.
How Induction Heating Works
If the material of your product is stainless steel, then care must be carried out a little differently. Such devices must be washed immediately after you used them. When caring and cleaning the metal, in no case, it is not necessary to use hard scrapers, since they can lead to deformation of the device, leaving microcracks or scratches on it. The ideal option would be pre.Treatment with a solution of salt before operation. This will significantly increase the service life of your kitchen utensils. For this, you do not need to make special efforts, everything is amazingly simple. Just add a vessel of pure water and add several tablespoons of salt. Then just put it on the fire and after boiling thoroughly rinse the dish.
How to save the surface of the hob
The product should have a flat bottom. And this is another reason why enameled dishes with chips are contraindicated for a new generation of plates. The appearance of any roughness, including escaped and dried porridge, should be avoided.
You can’t use the “intensive heating” function too often so as not to spoil the enameled dishes, and with it, possibly, the burner.
Crossing discs are recommended only on high-quality hobs, because severe heating of this item and its prolonged contact with the stove can damage the upper part of the device.
