If you are a cooking fan or indulge in cooking, you will notice a new appliance coming into your kitchen. It is a new type of cooking equipment that can replace traditional LNG gas stoves. These new stoves are earth-friendly and help you to build a Net Zero energy kitchen.
Chinese famous chef Kyle Lam has commented on the show: “It was a difficult choice. I am used to working in front of a gas stove but fed up with the heat.” (it can be a quote)
If you are cooking with a gas stove, you will find that the temperature in the kitchen will rise quickly. The open flame of a gas stove will increase the kitchen temperature. The most important thing is that the CO2 released from the combustion of LNG is the killer of the greenhouse effect. You will easily sweat and feel hot.
Kyle Lam follows with this point, “It is very hard because no one likes staying with a gas stove.”
Contradictorily, the induction cooker is completely free of this problem. Commercial induction cookers use electric energy to form a magnetic field to heat the pot itself. There is no open flame or CO2 release. You will feel very comfortable and enjoy it.

LNG - The Most Cleaning Fossil Fuel But Still Not Environmentally Friendly
According to Wikipedia, the constituent elements of LNG are methane, carbon series, water, nitrogen, carbon dioxide sulfide, hydrogen, helium, etc. The thermal efficiency conversion is only 55% when burning LNG.
When cooking with natural gas, pollution mainly generated from two parts. The first part is sulfur, and some unsaturated hydrocarbons/carbon oxides produced by incomplete combustion. Acid rain and the greenhouse effect are their main contributions. The second part is nitrogen oxides, also called photocatalysts, which were the main culprits causing haze in the industrial revolution.
Electricity - A New Generation of Clean Energy
Based on electrical energy, its power mainly generated through thermal power, solar power, wind power, nuclear power, and hydropower. When an electric current passes through a commercial induction cooker, and energy conversion, electromagnetic energy converts into thermal energy.
Electricity is leading the electrical age and heading to a new generation of energy. Induction cooking has little transmission losses and can widely convert. Most importantly, induction cooking is more effective than fossil fuel energy and does not directly cause pollution.
Why Is The Thermal Conversion Rate of Gas Stoves Using LNG Less Than 60%?
When you cook with a gas stove, you will find that LNG consumes a lot. The effective thermal energy conversion rate of natural gas is only 55%. From these reasons, you can find the reason:
1. Insufficient natural gas combustion
The oxygen supply is insufficient when using the gas stove and result in incomplete combustion. Furthermore, incomplete combustion will generate carbon monoxide that might cause carbon monoxide poisoning and inefficient use of natural gas.
2. Not all-natural gas is combustible
In addition to combustible methane, hydrogen, and element C series, Natural gas also contains non-combustible components such as water, nitrogen, and helium.
3. Use thermal energy to heat the cooking utensils
During the combustion of natural gas, a large part of the thermal energy heats the cooking cookware, but only 30% is directly heating food.
4. Thermal radiation diffusion
During the cooking process, the burning heat will continue to diffuse into the environment, which is why the kitchen using a gas stove is too hot.
Net Zero Kitchen - 90% Heat Conversion Rate of Induction Cooker:
In induction cooking, the heat generates and aims directly at the bottom of the pot, allowing rapid heating in seconds. Here are the benefits of induction cooking:
1. Reduce inefficient heating: Thermal energy is heating directly under the pot, not the surrounding environment. Minimizing excessive energy usage.
2. Almost all electricity is converted into thermal energy, avoiding energy waste.
3. Most importantly, induction cooking is free of carbon dioxide. Moreover, the heat remains under the pot and maintains a desirable cooking environment, allowing you to show your skills in the kitchen.
4. Another exciting setting for induction cookers is power regulation. Cooking with precise temperatures maximizes the taste of food. Not only that, it is green to regulate the appropriate power.
“In the beginning, I couldn’t accept the induction. But for the cost and environmental considerations, I had to try to accept.”
These two kinds of cookers have different meanings in the environment. From the principle, the induction cooker has better environmental protection than the gas stove.
Renewable: Gas is fossil energy, non-renewable resource. Based on electricity, induction can keep regenerating.
Sufficient combustion: Thanks to the direct conversion of electrical energy into heat, there is no open flame in the induction cooker. Natural gas burns and produces carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons, that is, the main causes of the greenhouse effect and acid rain. In contrast, induction cookers are almost zero pollution.
Cooking oil fume: When cooking with heavy-duty stove equipment, gas cookers will produce thicker smoke and fumes, so it needs to equip with a powerful hood and other ventilation facilities.
Overall speaking, depend on the outstanding performance on environmental protection, you are worth investing in an induction cooker for your commercial kitchen.
“Commercial induction cooker is mature ceaselessly, which will become the trend of commercial kitchens.” Chef Kyle Lam finally said.
So, are you ready for a revolution in induction cookers?
