Induction Cooking at the Cooks Roost

Induction Cooking at Cooks RoostHave you ever wondered why some people love induction cooktops? If you’ve never used one before then you are missing out…

and probably confused as to why these stove tops are so expensive and different from everything else.

How can it possibly not use heat to heat your food?!?

Ahem, aluminum.
