Induction hobs heat only the pan – rather than the cooking surface heating up, a magnetic field is created between the pan and an element underneath the glass top. This means you can touch the adjacent surface without burning yourself. The area around the pan will reach about 45°C after a few minutes, while the same area for ceramic hobs reaches more than 100°C. Induction hobs are quicker than other types of hob, and are cheaper to run because they use only the precise amount of energy you need.
