Frequently Asked Questions about Induction Hobs in Singapore
1. How does an induction hob work?
A typical induction hob works as an electromagnetic generator to heat the metal and magnetic cookware. It does so by producing an electromagnetic field between the hot surface of the pan and the coil underneath it. This electromagnetic field then penetrates the magnetic cookware resulting in an active current that generates heat. The strong and continuous magnetic field generated by induction hobs allows them to heat cookware much faster than conventional hob types.
2. Is it hard to clean an induction hob cooktop?
Cleaning an induction cooker hob is as simple as cleaning its smooth glass top. The main advantage of induction hobs when it comes to cleaning is that it doesn't generate as much heat as electric or gas hobs, resulting in less greasiness and mess. FUJIOH induction hobs can be cleaned with just dish soap and hot water, or warm water and a sponge. Here are some steps to ensure your induction cooker hob remains shiny even after cooking:
- Make sure to turn off the cooktop before you start cleaning
- Wait for the cooking area to completely cool down
- Apply a small portion of cooktop or glass cleaner and gently wipe with a paper towel or soft cloth
3. How do I know if a pan can be used on an induction hob?
To determine if a pan can be used on an induction hob, you can perform a simple test. Place a magnet on the bottom of the pan; if it sticks, the pan is suitable for use on an induction hob. Only pans made of a magnetic material, such as cast iron or stainless steel, can be used on induction hobs. Another thing to note is to avoid using a pan with a base size smaller than the zone size on the induction hob, as the pan will not be detected. Also, be sure to avoid using a pan with a base size much bigger than the zone size, as heat energy will be lost.
