Are you looking to transform your cooking experience? Try cooking with a portable induction cooktop. Portable induction cooktops, unlike traditional electric and gas cookers, don’t get hot. They use electromagnetic frequencies between the burner and the pan to set up a circulating current, which in turn, generates heat. Portable induction cooktops are one the best inventions of our time, and perhaps the best when it comes to cooking technology.
Their growing popularity is attributable to their efficiency, portability, and flexibility. You can use a portable induction cooktop outdoors on your patio/deck, they come in a variety of sizes for people with limited space, and they are safe and incredibly easy to clean. Since its inception, induction cooking technology has caught the world by storm due to the advantages it offers over conventional cooking techniques such as electricity and gas.
