Join Daily Induction Cooking Demonstrations

Visit NYSERDA at the Wegmans Demonstration Kitchen Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. for a live induction cooking demonstration from 3:30-4:30 p.m. every day of the State Fair. Demonstrations will cover how to use an induction stove or cooktop and their benefits, such as boiling water in about half the time and delivering precise temperature control.

A raffle will be held at each daily demonstration and an attendee will win a piece of premium cookware. Additionally, fairgoers can stop by the NYSERDA booth within the Experience Center at the Center of Progress Building Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. to enter for a chance to win an induction cooktop.

Induction stoves transmit heat to metal cookware through an electromagnetic current, and thus, operate with cookware containing magnetic properties, such as cast iron, enameled cast iron, and many types of stainless steel. This process is more energy efficient than gas or electric cooktops and keeps the cooking surface cool since heat is being transmitted directly to the cookware.
