What is the difference between a ceramic cooktop and an induction cooktop?
It's no wonder that most find this confusing because both cooktops use a ceramic surface. The difference lies between the technology they use. Ceramic cooktops use a heating element to heat the whole hotplate. Therefore, if the hotplate is 25cm the whole area glows orange, heats up and transfers the heat to the pan. Induction cooktops use magentic energy and will only heat the surface area of the saucepan, not the whole hotplate zone. Induction cooktops don't transfer heat ie they don't glow orange. The magnetic energy transfers to the pan which heats itself resulting more even heat and better control over hot and warm temperatures making them much safer to use.
