Induction is like any other form of cooking, it uses heat. Therefore the results of induction heating have the same effect on food. The induction cooktop creates an electro-magnetic field that causes the metal of the pan itself to get hot.
Safety & Cleanliness
An induction burner turned on to full heat is still cool to the touch. As it heats metal, cookware will become hot, but the burner itself creates no heat. This makes induction much safer than traditional ranges. COCINAS BURAGLIA induction ranges have automatic detectors that shut off the burner when there is no pan present (electronic pot recognition), when the pan is empty (overheating protection), or when foreign objects fall onto the surface of the range indicator.
