Induction Cooking Made Easy with CookTek Helios
Induction cooking and warming is one of the fastest-growing trends in commercial foodservice. Commonplace in many European kitchens for several years, the prevalence of induction is now expected to grow in the United States, as well.
According to Future Market Insights, the global market for commercial induction cooktops is expected to reach $17.5 billion by 2032. A driving force behind this growth is the fact that commercial induction cooktops and warmers take up less space and use less energy when compared to alternatives. Plus, they provide an added level of safety and will reach cooking temperatures faster than electric or gas cooktops.
Induction cooking also provides consistent results during the cooking process because it can support a greater heat distribution than other power sources. With the added benefit of enhanced durability, commercial induction cooktops are becoming more useful in today’s foodservice operations.
