Cooking with Induction Cooktop

We have come a long way over millions of years, and from many advancements in kitchen cookware, the induction cooktop is one of the revolutionary advancements in the culinary space. Considering that it offers numerous advantages over traditional gas stove, induction cookware has gained significant popularity in recent years. Let’s explore the advantages of induction cooking, highlight the importance of compatible cookware, and introduce some popular recipes.

Induction cooking has transformed the way we prepare meals, offering several compelling advantages:

  1. Speed and Precision:

With temperature settings, induction cooktops offer precise temperature control allowing for more accurate cooking. You can adjust the heat with accuracy, reducing the risk of burning or overcooking your dishes. Also, these cooktops heat up incredibly quickly, reducing cooking time and increasing efficiency in the kitchen.

  1. Safety:

Unlike gas or electric stoves, induction cooktops don't use an open flame or produce direct heat. The heat is generated through electromagnetic induction, ensuring that the surface remains cool, reducing the risk of burns. They also have an auto-shutoff feature, providing an added layer of safety and peace of mind.

  1. Energy Efficiency:

Induction cooking is more energy-efficient than traditional stoves. Since the heat is generated directly in the cookware, it eliminates heat loss and maximizes energy utilization. This is an eco-friendly choice.

It’s essential to use the right cookware in order to fully enjoy the benefits of induction cooking. Induction cooktops rely on electromagnetic induction to heat the cookware. Therefore, the pots and pans must be made of materials that can respond to this magnetic field. Traditional cookware made of aluminum, copper, or glass is not compatible as they don't have a magnetic base. To ensure compatibility, you can opt for cookware specifically designed for induction cooking. Vinod Cookware offers a range of induction-friendly options which is known for its quality and performance.

Now that we are wise with the knowledge of induction cooking, let’s make a delicious creamy mushroom risotto in an induction-friendly saucepan.

Ingredients: 1 cup rice, 3 cups sliced mushrooms, chopped onion, vegetable or chicken broth, 5 tbsp white wine, 4 tbsp butter, ½ cup parmesan cheese, 1 cup water, 4 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp finely chopped garlic, and salt to taste.


  1. Preheat the induction cooktop to 150°C and place your Vinod Zest Non-Stick Saucepan on the cooktop.
  2. Heat some olive oil and butter in it to sauté the garlic and onions until translucent.
  3. Now it’s time to stir in the sliced mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes or until they release their moisture.
  4. Since we will be adding rice and cook for a minute or two until it's lightly toasted, increase the temperature to 175°
  5. Pour in some white wine and let it reduce until the wine is completely absorbed.
  6. Gradually add the broth and water, stirring frequently until the rice is completely cooked and creamy to your liking.
  7. Season with salt and finish with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve hot.

It takes time to adjust to new cookware, but induction cooking has brought efficiency, safety, and precision to our kitchens. By investing in the right cookware, such as Vinod Cookware's induction friendly series, and exploring new recipes, you can unlock the full potential of your induction cooktop. Whether you're stir-frying a vibrant vegetable medley or preparing a luxurious mushroom risotto, the compatibility of your cookware and the advantages of induction cooking will undoubtedly shine through in your dishes. So, get ready to enjoy delicious meals cooked with precision and efficiency on your induction cooktop!
