Induction heating provides a safer, quicker, more efficient heat source than other types of gas and electric stoves. Through electromagnetic waves, the induction system sends heat up into your pan, so that the stove is not creating heat, but the pan itself is. This will allow your food to be cooked from anywhere in the pan, not just the bottom, which will decrease the chance of burnt food, and will lessen the time it takes to cook a meal. Included in the set is a free induction cookware stockpot!
Induction cookware is popular in China and Japan, where overpopulation is a problem. Induction stove tops are encouraged by their governments because they use a lot fewer resources and are safer than other cooking methods. In order for the induction cooker to work properly, you must use a stainless steel pot, or any other appliance that is able to conduct electromagnetic waves. The easiest way to tell if your pot or appliance can do this is to see if a magnet will stick to it. The induction cook top is safer than gas stoves because there is no flame, and it is safer than or electric stoves because the heat is in the pan itself, not the stove top, which makes it less likely that your hand will graze the stove and burn itself. The induction stove is more efficient too; since the air around the pan is not heated up there is less energy being wasted on what doesn’t need to be cooked. Because it’s more efficient, it will cook faster, get hot faster, and save electricity. And because there is no flame or heated stove, your cookware will not be left with the ugly scars that are left by repeated use of gas and electric cooktops. The Inducting heating stove comes with a free stainless steel pot included so that you can start cooking right away!

I bought this Induction Stove. Lousy! I advise you not to buy it. Serves as long as you use it only for boiling water, but not to simmer, fry eggs, cook an Omellet, bechamel sauce, fouge, etc. Then I called the company Oyama, I sent the Stove, told me back they could not do anything but that I contact the company that sold it to me, in this case "Asian Food Grocer", for my money back because I was not happy with the product. So we have been in a long communication via e-mail to the customer area with a certain Jackson, did everything they asked me, to return the Induction Stove and Pot,and never refunded my money. ASIAN FOOD GROCER kept The Stove and with my money.
Really disappointed, I am customer for several years and so have no consideration. And so it was no new client deserves such treatment. My advice is to be very careful with this company to make their purchases, they keep your money, how embarrassing!
No one compares to Amazon.com they are honest people and very professional business!
Take care and I hope that this message will serve.
