Induction heats as electricity flows through a coil to produce a magnetic field under the ceramic plate. When a ferromagnetic cookware is placed on the ceramic surface, currents are induced in the cookware and instant heat is generated due to the resistance of the pan. Since induction technologty uses the power of magnetism, the cookware must be magnetic and have a flat bottom. Not all pieces of cookware can be used on inductions - a simple test with a small magnet can check if the cookware is compatible (watch video):
