The right stove settings
Every stove behaves slightly differently when cooking – depending on the type of stove and cooktop and the specific characteristics of the individual stove model. There are electric stoves with multiple, ceramic, halogen, or induction cooktops and gas stoves. Multiple cooktops are conventional steel or iron burners which utilize their high heat conductivity to transport heat. Ceramic cooktops are glass ceramic burners whose heat is generated by irradiation. Halogen cooktops heat the cookware by means of infrared irradiation. Induction cooktops generate alternating magnetic fields which are converted to heat in the base of the pot.
To achieve perfect cooking results it is important that the pot and burner are ideally matched. In the case of multiple, ceramic, and halogen cooktops the burner should be the same size as the base of the pot or smaller. If you cook on a gas stove, always place the cookware centrally to prevent the flames from spreading. With induction stoves the cookware should also be placed centrally on the burner. The pot size and the cooktop size must match as closely as possible.
