Topic: OT: Induction cooking, similar to Zojirushi (3 msgs / 63 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
I was having trouble understanding how the Zojirushi induction rice
cookers worked. This page explains it a little bit:http://blog.owneriq.net/?p2To get slightly on topic, It's interesting to see that the photo seems
to include a moka pot on the cook top.

I wonder if there will one day be a place for induction heating for coffee
roasting.  I would think that the rapid heating times and control would be
attractive.

Seth,
The site I referenced earlier sort of showed up in my inbox, and it
seemed helpful to me so I posted it here on the list. Since I have
done a bit of searching and found a site that seems quite good:http://theinductionsite.com/proandcon.shtml<Snip>
plenty of power:
induction cooking units are every bit as powerful, and often more
powerful, than gas units. To recap, a top-line "semi-professional"
home gas range for serious cooks might have burners each rated at
15,000 BUT an hour--but that is only about 2 kW for an induction
element. As you will see elsewhere on this site, many modern induction
units have capacities well above that number (some have up to 3.5 kW).
Any concern over the adequacy of the "cooking power" of induction
units is simply silly.
It seems that at present a drawback is cost.
