Hobs

Question: What's the difference between ceramic hobs and induction hobs?

Ceramic hobs work thanks to heating elements underneath the glass surface which warm up and transfer heat to the selected cooking zone/hob ring Induction hobs, on the other hand, use circular coils which generate a magnetic field that induces heat onto a pan made from ferrous material only when it is physically placed onto the hob itself. These hobs are more efficient and extra safe. Both types of hob are known for being extremely easy to clean.
