Stovetop technology has come a long way from the electric coils of the past.

Before writing off induction technology, take a look at a demonstration and check out the incentives offered by BayREN.

Induction Range


An induction cooking device uses electro-magnetic induction to generate heat in the cooking pot or pan. The element itself is relatively cool to the touch. The pot or pan must be made of a material that is attracted to magnets, like cast iron or magnetic stainless steel. A range typically includes both a stovetop and an oven, but only the stovetop is induction while the oven has regular electric resistance heating elements.

Induction Cooktop


An induction cooktop uses electromagnetic induction to generate heat in the cooking pot or pan. The pot or pan must be made of a material that is attracted to magnets, like cast iron or magnetic stainless steel. Some cooktops are meant to be fixed into a countertop. Smaller induction cooktops, also called induction plates, are also available. They have one or two elements, sit on a countertop, and can be plugged into a standard wall outlet.
