How different is an electric hob from induction hob?

An induction hob works similarly to an electric hob, but has coils beneath its surface that induce electrical current to generate heat in the pan or metal object. It uses less power and remains cold until you place a pan on it so less energy is used than other electric hobs. An electric hob comes in two forms, solid plate and ceramic: A ceramic hob refers to the finish of the hob rather than the workings of the hob itself. The stylish, streamlined ceramic glass appearance makes for easy use and equally easy cleaning due to its wipe-clean fascia. An electric solid plate hob has black sealed plates and heat and cool slowly. It typically consists of four-ring electric plates which heat pots and pans and weigh in at the lower end of the price range so are perfect for those on a budget. Still uncertain?
