On a recent webinar hosted by Environment America Research & Policy Center in partnership with U.S. PIRG, professional chef, Chris Galarza discussed the benefits of induction cooking in this demonstration while whipping up a delicious stir-fry.

Chef Chris listed safety and comfort, responsiveness and ease of cleaning as key benefits of induction cooking.

New incentives and rebates under the Inflation Reduction Act can make it easier for professional and amateur cooks to make the switch to induction. Those who qualify for the full rebate, could save $840 on a new electric or induction stove, and up to an additional $500 if you are switching from gas or propane. Depending on the model you go with, you could get a brand new induction or electric stove for as little as just a couple hundred dollars.
