▯Always place the correct lid on cookware.
Cooking with an uncovered pan will result in a
four-fold increase in energy use. Use a glass lid to
provide visibility and avoid having to lift the lid.
▯Use cookware equipped with a solid, flat bottom.
Curved pan bases increase energy consumption.
▯The diameter of the pan base must match the size
of the hotplate. If not, energy may be
wasted. Note: The manufacturer normally
indicates the pan's upper diameter. This is
normally greater than the diameter of the pan's
▯Choose cookware of a size suited to the amount
of food you are going to cook. A large pan that is
only half full will use a lot of energy.
▯Use a small amount of water when cooking. This
saves energy, and vegetables retain their vitamins
▯Select a lower power level.
Advantages of induction cooking
Induction cooking represents a radical change from
the traditional method of heating; the heat is
generated directly in the pan. It therefore offers a
number of advantages:
▯Time savings for cooking and frying; since the pan
is heated directly.
▯Energy is saved.
▯Care and cleaning are simpler. Foods that have
spilt do not burn as quickly.
▯Heat and safety control; the hob supplies or cuts
off power immediately when the control knob is
turned on. The induction hotplate stops supplying
heat if the pan is removed without having
previously switched it off.
