Cooking Inductively: ADI iCoupler Technology Isolates Hob and User Interface

Easy-to-use inductive cooking surfaces (hobs) are significantly safer, without flames or other direct heat sources on the hob. They have better overall performance, including faster heating time, and are gaining acceptance by consumers as they are becoming more affordable. Designing the circuitry that drives the inductive plate to heat metal pots requires an understanding of a wide variety of physical principles and techniques.

The Cooktek MC1800G induction hobs in my kitchen run at a fixed frequency (~25kHz) and vary power by low frequency on-off duty cycle. I chose these as they have 100 power levels available vs the 5 to 20 in most other brands, wonderful to cook with! Also most cookers now in the market require a ferromagnetic layer in the pan bottom, usually in a sandwich with Al as a heat spreader and Stainless Steel for appearance. The site has lots of useful information.
