Induction cook-tops are found in more and more homes because they are safe, sleek, efficient, and fast. What some homeowners do not realize until they have had induction cook-tops installed in the home is that an induction cookware set is required to get the best use out of the technology. Induction cookware can be used on any cooking surface, but some cookware designed for gas or electricity will not work on with induction. Sets are not luxury items, but they are not cheap to purchase either.
A Variety of Options
An entire cookware set is ideal for a best friend or a close relative. That makes a great housewarming present. An induction frying pan or one pot is suitable for a coworker, neighbor, or acquaintance. If a friend at work is retiring and loves to cook, a non-stick frying pan will be appreciated.
Pieces are sold separately, as are accessories. Ceramic cook-top cleaners work well on induction surfaces and damp cloths are recommended. Getting some cleaner, small kitchen cloths and a few silicone spatulas together will make a thoughtful and cost-effective gift basket.
The price range of high-quality cookware sets makes the perfect gift for a couple or family to give at weddings of close friends and immediate family members. A sister is getting married for the second time, for example, and really hopes to make it work. Induction cooking drastically reduces cooking time, so the happy couple will be able to cook dinner and have time to relax while enjoying each other’s company. That small detail can make a significant difference in the bonding process.
In addition to faster cooking time, induction surfaces are also quicker to clean because the only part of the surface that gets hot is the burner while the cookware is on it. Once the cookware is removed, the surface is cool to the touch. This eliminates any burned-on food pieces. If a pot or pan does happen to boil over or food is spilled on the surface, cleaning it up right away will eliminate any need to scrub the surface later. Schedules are hectic, so any time saved on a daily basis will reduce stress and anxiety.
