What is "IH" that you often hear with rice cookers and cookers?How do you warm it?[Commentary] -Fav -log by itmedia

 Many of the high -priced rice cookers and cooking heaters (electric stoves) introduced in all -electric houses use the "IH" method.

 In the first place, what is "IH"?What is different from a heater (heat source) that uses general electricity?

IH = Indication Heating (electromagnetic induction heating)

 IH is an abbreviation of "Industry Heating", which means "electromagnetic induction heating" when translated into Japanese.

 "Electromagnetic induction" is a phenomenon that causes electricity by moving a magnet near the metal.In junior high school science classes, I think that I learned in the form of "putting in and out of the stick magnet in and out of a coil made of copper wire".

 The current that has occurred at this time is called "vortex current".Metals that have a whirlpool current have heat.IH -type rice cookers and cooking heaters use this mechanism to generate a whirlpool current between the objects to be warmed (kettle, pot and frying pan) to heat and heat the object directly.

 A rice cooker or a cooking heater for a heating line (heater) is the same for using electricity, but heating is not the object but an electric heating line.The object will be indirectly warmed.

IH method merit

 The advantage of an IH -type rice cooker and cooking heater is that it is more efficient because it warms what to warm up directly.Unlike rice cookers, cooking heaters, gas -type rice cookers and stoves that use electric heat wire, the surrounding temperature is difficult to rise.

 If you narrow down to the cooking heater, the surface is basically a glass material, so you can wipe it off immediately even if there is spills or scattered.

 In addition, the benefits of the gas type, especially when compared with gas type, can minimize the risk of fire because there is no flame.However, please be careful, as it will never be zero.

Disadvantages of IH method

 On the other hand, there are disadvantages for IH -type rice cookers and cooking heaters.In particular, cooking heaters tend to be big.

 First of all, in principle, non -metal pots and frying pans are not available in principle.In addition, depending on the size and shape, it cannot be used with a metal pot or frying pan, or it may not be able to apply heat efficiently even if it can be used.

 Choose a pot or frying pan used in the IH cooking heater that is compatible with "IH cooker".

 In addition, IH -type rice cookers and cooking heaters may make an unpleasant sound.

 As mentioned earlier, the IH method warms the object by the whirlpool current generated by electromagnetic induction.Therefore, depending on the object, resonance occurs and a high -pitched sound occurs.However, the resonance can be suppressed by using a heavy pot or frying pan or devising the placement position.

 It is also important to note that you will not be able to use it at all when a power outage.It is a good idea to prepare a cassette cylinder type gas stove in case of disaster.
