Induction stoves and cooktops have a learning curve. The right sized cookware must be placed in the center of the heating element in order for it to be properly activated. The pot can’t be too small, off-center, or wobbly, so flat-bottomed pots and pans work best. While most induction cooktops have a lock setting that allows you to freely shake your pan around while cooking, during testing, we found the learning curve to be a little frustrating: the heating element sometimes cuts off prematurely or shuts off without warning.

Induction stoves and cooktops can overcook food at first because they heat food faster than traditional cooking methods. Remember that when cooking with induction, cookware doesn’t need as long to preheat and a lower heat setting is needed to maintain the temperature of food. The trade-off is a speedy cook time.

Induction stoves and cooktops sometimes cause a rattling sound, which is a result of the high energy transferring from the coil to the pan. This whirring sound often goes away when you turn down the heat or add food to the pot or pan, but it can be annoying for some users.

Induction cooktops scratch easily. While electric and gas ranges have a grate or heat element that can withstand more wear and tear, inductions are made with smooth glass, which makes them more prone to scratching. Induction cooktop manufacturers suggest using cookware with clean, smooth bottoms, and avoid sliding your pots and pans around on the surface. It’s also advised to not use sharp tools or abrasive cleaning materials on your range.

Are induction cooktops worth it?

Even though induction takes some getting used to, we love the unbeatable temperature control induction cooktops offer. In comparison to electric, induction cooktops cook food more quickly, adjust better to temperature changes, and take no time at all to cool down. Induction cooktops are also very easy to clean, and are indisputably safer than gas and electric.

What You Should Know About Contact Grills

Contact Grills or clamshells as they can also be known are increasingly being seen as a must have gadget for many food outlets, with the heavy duty grills now in the domestic home with the launch of the George Formby range contact grill and other manufacturers following suit. A contact grill offers the benefit of allowing your food to be cooked without the need for turning so the food is sandwiched together and therefore it locks in the foods natural juices and tastes to give it a fuller flavour providing a high nutritional content as it cooks the food between two heated even plate surfaces which shortens the cooking times and in using this method has benefits over the conventional metal pan. They can perform well using either fresh or frozen food like pork belly loins to vegetables like peppers.

Contact grills can provide the caterer with a faster and possibly a more capable and competent way of cooking a healthier leaner gourmet food for your customer, as the deep grooved plates keep the food raised up, and any fat that maybe in the food drains down the back into a grease tray, with some having a high splash guard to keep this away from the operator. Sandwich based snacks like the panini are still a popular choice with many food retail outlets, with customers asking for more adventurous fillings and looking to spend more than ever. With the endless possibilities and being able to cook the likes of steaks and burgers on the grill with the texture of either rare too well done that you can cook together side by side. The contact grill gives you have the opportunity to add the ‘hot snacking’ options to any kitchen menu

What are the advantages of an induction cooktop?

Induction cooking is more efficient than traditional methods with up to a 70% reduction in energy consumption – 90% of the energy produced channeled into the pan itself. That means that food cooks faster using less power.

Induction is safer, as there is no flame or element to ignite fumes or cause burns. When pans are removed, the hob stops heating up.

Pans and food not only get up to speed faster, but cool down quicker too, which makes life easier for chefs and cooks, especially when cooking different covers and more creative dishes.

Safety is one of the inherent advantages of induction cooking. ​An integrated Pan Detection System means the hob will recognise when a pan is in place, so there’s no risk of leaving the heat on (and no need for as much extraction). This reduces the risk of burns – both for food and staff.

Induction cooking creates a cooler environment in the kitchen, as the surface only heats up when a pot or pan is applied, instead of having to keep your cooking appliances heated and ready throughout busy service periods. Energy is contained in the pan, which means that the heat doesn’t escape into the surrounding air.

Best of all, induction hobs have an entirely smooth surface, making them easy to clean and maintain. There are no hidden nooks or crannies where food or grease particles can get stuck, and spills won’t bake on to the surface.

Mobile caterers – think food trucks and stalls – can rely on space-saving induction hobs to help them keep food hot, fresh and ready to serve.
