NuWave Personal Induction Cooktop FAQs
What is Induction cooking all about?
Series of burners known as induction coils working on magnetic principles are at the heart of an induction cooktop. Magnetic fields leading to warming reaction on steel and iron pots are formed by these coils. Thus it’s more energy efficient then regular electric or gas cooktops because heat is produced in the pot itself. There’s no residual heat left behind because there are no flames and since no toxins are emitted, it’s also an eco-friendly way of cooking. Moreover in places where magnetic surface is not activated, NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop will stay cool to touch.
Why is there a need for specific type of cookware?
That’s because induction cooking uses magnetic principles and it’s necessary that the cookware has a ferrous bottom. In some cookwares the bottom is directly magnetic while in others a ferrous layer is a part of the base, which leads to distribution of heat. Superior quality Stainless Steel, Tri-ply and cast iron cookware is ideal for induction cooktops. Medium and heavy gauge pots work well, but glass, copper or aluminium pots will not work for induction cooking.
Do existing pots in the kitchen work with NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop?
To know whether your existing cookware works with NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop you can follow these steps;
- See whether the pot has induction symbol at the bottom.
- Put water in the pot and if it’s induction compatible, water will begin to boil.
- Usually a magnet sticking to the pot shows it is induction compatible. But in some cases the magnetic properties of the cookware might not be strong enough.
Compatible cookware for induction cooking includes All NuWave Precision Cookware, Cast Iron, Enameled iron and steel, and stainless steel that has a magnetic base.
Non-compatible cookware could be copper, aluminium, glass and other pottery type of vessels.
What parts of the system get heated when in use?
The larger red ring contains the heating surface; there will be no flames and where the magnetic surface is not activated, the cooktop will remain cool to touch.
Why does NuWave Precision Cooktop work better than gas and electric cooktops?
It’s because cook times and temperatures can be programmed so that you can cook precisely. It’s portable unlike other cooking ranges and where there is an electric outlet this cooktop can be used. You can use it indoors or when you are boating, camping, in college dorms, buffets etc. It’s fast and easy to clean too.
Is there an indicator that shows that the cooktop is working?
When you press ‘Start’, if the E1 message doesn’t come on then pans will start heating immediately. You can stop the heating process by pressing “Pause/Clear” and it can be continued by pressing ‘Start’ again.
The fan is operational when “Clear” is pressed. Does that mean the system is still on?
When “Pause/Clear” is pressed twice, the fan stays on for about 60 seconds longer after which the system turns itself off.
What are the corresponding temperatures for the six heat settings?
Low: 100°F (37°C) / Warm
Med-Low: 175°F (79°C) / Simmer

Can people with pacemakers use NuWave PIC?
According to scientific tests, NuWave PIC doesn’t cause any health risk however it’s recommended that if you have a pacemaker, you should keep a distance of at least 2 feet from the cooktop. Oxygen users should also maintain safe distance from the cooktop and as a precautionary measure aerosol (spray) products should be avoided.
Induction Cooktops are not recommended for people with above mentioned health conditions but the manufacturer Hearthware Inc. states that its flagship product NuWave Oven Pro doesn’t lead to any health risks to people with pacemakers as anyone can prepare healthy meals from frozen.
Is there specific wattage required to use NuWave PIC?
