Induction cooking has lots of benefits over and above the more prevalent gas and electric modes of cooking. In particular, if you have young children, then the technology is a must have. Not only is there no flame to burn tiny fingers on, but you can actually also place any part of your skin on the hob whilst its cooking and you or your children will not receive a burn. This is because the cooking is done via electromagnetic technology. Only pots and pans with a high concentration of ferrous or iron material will ever heat up.
