HICKSVILLE, Ohio—Nemco Food Equipment is announcing the next evolution in its cooking arsenal, after acquiring exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute a line of induction cookers developed by Dipo Induction. Nemco will have its first induction cookers available to ship starting on November 1, 2015, and will soon thereafter manufacture all Dipo products in its Hicksville, Ohio, headquarters.
Induction-cooking technology uses a high-frequency magnetic field to turn metal cookware into the actual heating element, transferring heat into the food much more quickly and efficiently than conventional gas-flame or electric-coil range tops. Further, because the induction effect cooks without radiant heat, the glass surface of the range top remains relatively cool to the touch and plays no part in raising ambient kitchen temperatures.
Nemco is a long-standing innovator in food-equipment design and manufacturing, specializing in the development of countertop equipment solutions that actualize new food concepts or address specific kitchen needs. Everything in the full Nemco line is made in the USA.

HOW DOES INDUCTION COOKING WORK?
Induction ranges are very efficient electric heating devices where the cooking vessel (pot or pan) actually becomes the heating element! Instead of heating up a burner that then heats up a pan and eventually heats the food, Induction cooking directly heats the pan itself, eliminating both lost time and lost energy! The glass surface of the range remains relatively cool to the touch… only the heat of the pan resting on the glass surface warms it up.
Here’s what’s going on:
A coil beneath the glass surface creates a magnetic field around the bottom of the pan. When the magnetic flux passes through the bottom of the pan, an eddy current is generated in the metal of the pan.
This eddy current is instantly transformed into heat by the resistance of the metal pan and you’re cooking!
