What is induction cooking?
Induction uses high-powered magnets to create a reaction that turns your cookware into the heat source. Compared to gas ranges or cooktops, induction delivers the same heating power with superior control and quicker response time. It’s also safer for humans and the environment. No harmful gas emissions or wasted excess heat, just pure culinary power.

Heavy Duty Stainless Steel
The key to induction performance is a strong magnetic material. Every piece of Hestan Cookware is crafted from 18/10 stainless steel to optimize performance on any burner - but especially induction.
The wider base of Hestan vessels creates a larger, sleeker surface to initiate better contact with induction cooktops. It also gives you 20% more cooking surface than other skillets and saucepans of the same size for better browning and searing.
Hestan makes cleaning your cookware as easy as induction makes cleaning your stovetop. From flush rivets to sealed rims, the details make the difference.
Why Induction Cooking?
Ask the expert, Chef Rachelle Boucher.
After a career as a top private chef for celebrities such as filmmaker George Lucas and rock band Metallica, Chef Rachelle was recruited to the home appliance industry. It was there that she fell in love with the wonders of induction cooking. As the co-founder of "Kitchens to Life", she is one of the leading advocates and experts in induction cooking, advising top sustainability experts from companies such as Google, Bosch and groups such as the National Association of Realtors and the Sierra Club.
Why Chef Rachelle Cooks on Induction
1. Incredibly quick heating.
Induction heats two to three times faster than on gas ranges or cooktops. Water boils in half the time. Pans are ready for searing in moments. It's the ultimate convenience.
2. Remarkable control.
Chefs have used induction for decades because of its precise and consistent temperature control, from the lowest melting setting to the highest heat searing. Plus, the heat disappears as soon as the power is turned off, eliminating the need to shuffle pans to cool.
3. Safer than gas.
With no open flame or harmful gas emissions such as methane, formaldehyde and nitrogen oxides, induction allows for better indoor air quality and less ventilation. Towels, paper or flammable surfaces cannot catch on fire. With over 80% heat efficiency, your kitchen stays much cooler.
4. Easy to clean.
No more lifting up heavy grates, the smooth, seamless cooktop surface makes cleanup a breeze. With induction cooking, foods won't burn onto the cooking surface like the old style flat top electric burners and ventilation grates stay cleaner.
