Every induction range and cooktop Consumer Reports has tested—19 and counting—delivers fast cooktop heat and superb simmering. That’s because induction models have an electromagnetic field below the glass cooktop surface that quickly generates heat directly to the pan, offering you precise simmering and control. But induction models aren’t cheap, so here’s what you’ll want to know before you shop. What induction is—and what it isn’t The only difference between an induction and electric smoothtop model is that the surface elements on an induction model heat pots by using an electromagnetic field, rather than radiant heat, says Tara... The electromagnetic field doesn’t create a glow so you won’t know it’s on. That’s why manufacturers are adding virtual flames and other special lights as a cue. As for the range ovens, they use pretty much the same old technology for bake and broil elements, whether the range is an induction or electric smoothtop. The induction advantage Induction elements typically heat quickly and no other technology that we've tested is faster than the fastest induction elements, but we’re talking 2 to 4 minutes faster to bring 6 quarts of water to a near boil. Life changing. Probably not. However, if you turn on an induction element by mistake with no pot on it won’t get hot, and when you remove a pot from an element the heating stops. And an induction surface stays cooler than a radiant smoothtop, which should make cleaning up spills easier. But your pots will get very hot while cooking and that heat transfers from the surface below and around the pot. So if you’re using several induction elements the surface will heat up too. You need the right cookware Magnetic cookware, or more accurately, induction-capable, is needed for induction to work. If a magnet strongly sticks to the bottom of the pot, it will work with an induction cooktop. Some stainless-steel cookware is induction-capable, and some isn’t. What's that noise. “A buzz or hum is common and often is louder at higher settings, says Casaregola. “And we often hear clicking of element electronics at lower settings and the sound of the cooling fan for the electronics. Dig out your dial thermometer The magnetic field of an induction cooktop can interfere with a digital thermometer so you may need an analog. Source: www.consumerreports.org
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Award-winning recording artists and former Owasso residents Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks received the 64th and 65th stars on the Music City Walk of Fame in an induction ceremony last week in Walk of Fame Park. As previously reported, the Music City Walk of Fame was created in the fall of 2006 on Nashville’s Music Mile, a roughly one-mile stretch that connects downtown to Music Row. The Walk of Fame is a landmark tribute to those from all genres of music who have made significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and have contributed to the world through song or other industry collaboration. Brooks seemed to get emotional as he accepted the honor. "It's no mystery and no question that I am from Oklahoma. That is my home. I love the state of Oklahoma. And I cannot thank Nashville enough for giving me a second home," he said. He said in an interview during the ceremony that he is pleased to be enshrined beside his wife and country legend Loretta Lynn:. A Tulsa native who grew up in Yukon, Brooks is the No. 1-selling solo artist in U. S. , history with more than 136 million albums sold, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. His worldwide critical acclaim includes being named the best-selling artist of the last two decades by Billboard, Nielson and SoundScan. He has received an abundance of industry accolades and awards in his career, including multiple Grammy, Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music awards as well as induction into the International Songwriters Hall of Fame, the... His many No. 1 hits include “Friends in Low Places,” “The Thunder Rolls” and “The Dance. ” Brooks has assisted in many humanitarian efforts, including performing five concerts in two days in 2008 to assist fire relief efforts in California, and performing nine sold-out concerts in six days in 2010 to raise money for Nashville’s flood... Yearwood has sold more than 12 million albums and is a platinum-selling, multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Award-winning recording artist. 1 hits include “She’s In Love With The Boy,” “XXX’s and OOO’s (An American Girl),” and “How Do I Live. ” Since 2007, the superstar, whom Entertainment Tonight dubbed the newest "lifestyle maven," has written three New York Times best-selling cookbooks, hosted six.

Without touching a potentially scorching electric hob with your hand, it can be difficult to tell whether its surface is hot enough or not. But a new video shows a chef doing just that - forcibly placing his palm face down onto a cooker top on which bacon is sizzling away. Yet rather than burning himself, the video demonstrates the mind-blowing way induction hobs only generate heat when saucepans are placed on them. The video features a saucepan that has been cut in half. Eggs and chocolate are placed in the half pan to show that they cook quickly when touching a metal cooking pot, but stay raw when placed directly on the induction hob. This is because, 'inside the stove plate you have an electromagnet that spins around and turns the pan into the element,' according to the video by Yuppiechef. com, based in Cape Town, South Africa. A magazine is placed on the hob in the video, with the half-saucepan on top with a little water on it. It shows the magazine doesn't burn as it would on an electric hob, but the water in the saucepan quickly boils. 'The hob only gets slightly warm by the reflected heat from the pan,' the video says. This is because ceramic induction hobs generate heat using electric currents and magnetic fields. Inside each cooking zone on the ceramic plate, there's a coil of metal. Induction cooking heats a cooking vessel by magnetic induction, instead of by thermal conduction from a flame, or an electrical heating element. In an induction cooker, a coil of copper wire is placed under the cooking pot and an alternating electric current is passed through it. The resulting oscillating magnetic field induces a magnetic flux which repeatedly magnetises the pot. Eddy currents - circular electric currents induced within conductors by a changing magnetic field in the conductor - are produced in the pot, which because of the resistance of the pot, heats it. In order for induction hobs to work, users must... It is claimed that induction cooking provides faster heating, improved. Source: www.dailymail.co.uk
