I used an induction heater in the factory that I worked in 30 years ago, to soften steel rods for die punching. I'd just poke the rod into the coil, step on the switch, and it was glowing deep red within 10 seconds.
Isn't induction cooking an old thing already? :uhh:
Yeah, I think so.
Induction heating is, but this is for sure the first time that I've ever seen a stove based upon it.
Oh, just had a fascinating idea. Have too look into a patent and a working model quick then i will tell.
It truly frightens me to say it, but I think that I know where you're going with this...
Induction cooktops have been around for years, especially in Europe.
Okay, I see what the problem is. I just checked, and they're only available through restaurant supply houses in this area.
They are supposedly becoming more popular in the US (and Canada I guess) in recent years - that's probably the reason for the article.
According to this quote, it was already available in 1999
i have seen them about 20 years ago in europe, but this is big news here in america like fluorescent bulbs.
omg wtf we got fluorescent bulbs now! Someone needs to clue me in!
Anyway my idea... ya wanna here it? Its good...
The Sunday newspapers often advertise induction cookers in their food supplements. About £50 last time I saw them.
Someone tell me those comments about the US only just getting fluorescent bulbs was a joke...
i'm not kidding, few years ago fluorescent bulbs were unknown here, they are introducing them slowly here, like everything else.electricity is just too cheap here to, there are more important thinghs to think about: like what is on TV tonight.
GE introduced the Biax fluorescent bulb in 1987. I've been using fluorescent bulbs for years.
I got all excited when I first heard about fluorescent bulbs, and bought a bunch. The frost must have got 'em, though, because not one of the damned things ever sprouted.
Seriously... how backward are you people really? We've had them here for as long as I can remember, back to the 50's.
I'm talking about fluorescent bulbs who look like incadescent bulbs, not long fluorescent tubes usually seen in office buildings :yuck:
Not fluorescent lamps, fluorescent compact bulbs, these things
Oh... Okay, then. I've only seen them for the past dozen years or so.
admit it, you have only seen them when traveling abroad
lets see.. i grew up in russia.. we had electric stoves - the electric plates would heat up, so i guess its heat by conduction. we had gas stoves, so thats heat by convection.
however this is the first time in my life i see an induction stove.. i mean it looks like an electric stove maybe thats why i ignored it before.. but the technology is definately unique and well thought out.
Edit: gotta point something out.. I'm not sure what everyone thought about this, but is that woman crazy for putting her hand on top of an induction stove?
Shouldn't be a problem unless she has any stainless steel jewelry on. :surprised .
point being, the EM field is not exactly harmless to you
Does anyone have any numbers on the EM field strength and range from source?
