  1. As soon as you turn on the stove, electricity will flow through the copper wire.
  2. This energy creates an electromagnetic field.
  3. If there is a saucepan with a magnetic base on the hob, a reaction occurs immediately.
  4. This reaction converts the energy present in the magnetic field into heat.
  5. The pot is heated.
  6. If you take the saucepan off the stove, this reaction will collapse. It will no longer give off any heat, but this also means that the stove tops are not hot.

Tip: As long as you leave the pot on the induction hob, you can also benefit from the residual heat. This protects the environment and also saves energy costs.

The induction hob offers a Maximum security. It is therefore very popular with families with small children. It's never so hot that the offspring can get burned. In addition, milk cannot burn in here.

Advantages and disadvantages of an induction hob

  • You shouldn't just take the pot down while it is cooking. A lot of residual heat is lost and the energy requirement increases.

Fine regulation has to be learned
