VIDEO: Introduction to Induction Cooktops

Have you heard of induction cooktops? Induction cooking is faster, easier and more efficient. This means a lower SWEPCO bill, while cooking your food faster and better.

Induction elements transfer electromagnetic energy through the glass surface directly to the pot, with no burners — and no wasted energy. It’s also a great safety feature. No heat is transferred from the induction elements – even when they’re on – until the proper pots and pans are placed on them, keeping you and your family safe.

The induction elements also use 30% less energy than electric coils and far less than gas burners, adding up to more cost savings. Induction cooking lets you control and maintain cooking temperatures easily and precisely, in no time at all. Just look, in the time it takes to boil water, you’ve learned about the benefits of induction cooking!
