Rising demands of an Induction pressure cooker

Today, induction pressure cookers have replaced conventional cookers because of its heat generating capacity and its ability to cook fast.

In an induction cooker, the vessel itself acts as a heat-generating device whereas in a conventional cooker heat is transferred from Coils, Hot plates and Halogen heaters to vessels through physical contact. Due to this reason most of the heat and energy are lost.

The induction cooker consists of an electromagnetic coil, which generates high frequency electromagnetic heat that passes through the pot to generate heat due to Eddy current and Magnetic Hysteresis.

Eddy current is the current generated due to change in the magnetic field and Magnetic Hysteresis is the resistance of magnetic materials due to change in magnetization.

ADVANTAGES:

Excellent energy efficient:

Induction pressure cookers are highly energy efficient, as it transfers 90% of heat to the pot (compared to a conventional electric burner that only transfers 47%). Thus, it acts as an energy saving device.

Easy to use & Safety:

As heat will not be generated in the cooker beyond a certain limit, one can remove the cooking vessel with even bare hands.

Moreover, it is not necessary to pre-heat the cooker as an induction base already generates heat and thus it takes only few minutes for the onions and cloves to get charred.

Faster cooking:

The Cooking process is faster in an induction pressure cooker than a conventional one as the former traps equitable amount of pressure inside the vessel in less venting time.

Reliability and life

Although induction cookers are considered as heat generating device, it can be used for a longer time.

DISADVANTAGES:

Cannot be used in a conventional gas burner as an induction – base pressure cookers are exclusively designed for Induction based cooking.

Only people with an induction stove can use this vessel.

Therefore, it is time to pair up your pressure cooker with an induction burner so that you can turn your household into an energy– saving super mode.
