Induction Technology Cooking Lifestyle in Pakistan
Tried the conventional gas stoves? The electric cooktops? Oh, well what you need to know is the latest rage in cooking without any heat emission nor flame. The Induction Cooking ranges and cooktops.
What exactly is Induction Technology?
Simple. It is similar to electric but the biggest saving grace is that it has no heat in the surrounding area. Second, the ingredients in the pan or utensil get directly heated and cooked rather than the entire utensil heating up.
Induction technology utilizes the ionized energy cycles converting the energy very efficiently to produce centralized heat for cooking. A revolutionary idea, it makes the job get done in less than half the time on an electric based cooking range/stove.
And the best part is, your food gets no radiation whatsoever. It is totally safe. The only radiation Induction cooking method emits, is if you literally stick to the cooktop itself.
That was a snappy introduction to what has become the choice of many chefs globally and has made a very solid place for itself in our Pakistani market too.
The complete rundown on Induction Cooking method is coming shortly on our website for your convenience and choice of cooktops and range.
Meanwhile we are bringing you the products presently available in our Pakistan’s Online stores as Induction Cooking sweeps the kitchen with its no-flame and clean-sheen technology. That does not particularly include the Induction Rice Cookers which can manage a lovely Pulao to Biryani for you. Those too are induction based but the cooktop technology will need you to alter your cookware a bit.
You need steel and ceramic cookware to go alongwith Induction cooktops. A little on the expensive side but it is worth investing in if you take the shift completely. Homage was the company that brought the Induction cooktop technology to Pakistan a good five years ago. Today contenders like Philips who came in direct competition and now Xiaomi (how could Xiaomi stay out of the market when it comes to technology no matter where its application may be).
The Induction single Cooktop which is the most popular choice online normally operates on 1800 watts to 2200 watts of electricity. Not to worry, it isn’t consuming all that wattage – it is infact according to cooking timer settings (similar to air conditioning unit temperature settings) that the Induction technology works on. This means that it will probably just eat up 200 watts for a saucepan of 20 liters of water to heat within a 4 minutes. Add to it two mugs (250ml) rice and it would take around the same wattage for a 10 minute fully prepared boiled rice.
Here’s a snappy look at what a single Homage cooktop has to offer:
