What exactly is induction cooking or heating and how is it different to a regular stove?

Induction cooking heats a cooking vessel by electrical induction, instead of by thermal conduction from a flame, or an electrical heating element. ... An induction hob contains a coil of copper wire underneath the ceramic plate, and when a cooking pot is placed on top an alternating electric current is passed through it.

A major difference between a gas and induction stovetop is that induction is significantly more efficient than gas – food being cooked with induction will receive 90% of the heat generated, as opposed to only 40-55% for gas. This keeps your kitchen much cooler and more comfortable while you prepare meals.

The Moka Induction from Bialetti  is the first Moka pot that can also be used on induction hobs. A functional combination of materials makes this coffee maker unique and inimitable: the octagonal aluminium collection chamber represents tradition and continuity with the historical Moka Express, while the steel boiler with a truncated conical shape also allows it to be used on induction hobs.

Proudly Italian, the age old moka pot was traditionally used on a gas hob, open flame or traditional stove to boil the water. Now, with the induction technology you can brew your moka pot on your new induction cooker!

Induction cooktops are electric since they don't use gas or another flame to heat. However, what sets them apart from regular electric cooktops is the manner in which they heat. Induction cooktops are quite different from the electric option. The air between the cooktop and the cooking vessel never gets hot.

Besides the massive saving in energy, you also won't generate any additional heat in your kitchen, which can be an advantage.
