The Benefits of Induction Cooking: Energy Efficiency, Speed & Safety Cited Among Top Advantages

Santa Rosa, CA. ~ Sonoma Clean Power, the public elec- tricity provider for Sonoma and Mendocino counties, is pro- moting the benefits of induc- tion cooking, as part of the agency’s commitment to energy ef- ficiency, and greenhouse gas reduc- tions.

years after launching service, SCP has saved customers

$78 mil- lion and cut greenhouse gas emis- sions from power plants in half. Through their innovative Drive Ev- erGreen program, SCP has helped customers save over $10 million on clean, electric vehicles and given away over 1,500 free home chargers. Up next…the benefits of

induction cooking! Short for “electromagnetic induction”, this technology uses a chang- ing electromagnetic field to heat the metal of the pan and provides fantastic control over cooking. Unlike gas and elec- tric cooktops, induction direct- ly heat pots and pans, rather than heating indirectly, using a burner or heating element to heat the cookware from under- neath. The direct heating of induction stovetops means that

food cooks faster and the cook- ing surface remains cool to the touch. This prevents burns and makes spilled food easy to wipe up. Additionally, induc- tion cook- ing is safer because it doesn’t pro- duce carbon monoxide

or other by- products of gas combus- tion.

Induction cooktops

have become increasingly

affordable in the past cou- ple of years. Combined

with the speed, ener-

gy efficiency, safety, and easy clean-up, induction cooking is quickly becoming the wave of the future. Those interested in experiencing carbon-free cooking are invited to contact SCP to borrow an induction cooktop: visit sonomaclean-

JOKES & Humor # 6

A toothpaste factory had a problem. They sometimes shipped empty boxes without the tube of toothpaste inside. This challenged their perceived quality with the buyers and distributors. Under- standing how important the rela- tionship with them was, the CEO of the company assembled all of his top people. They decided to hire an external engineering com- pany to solve their empty boxes problem. The project followed the usual process: budget and project sponsor allocated, RFP, and third- parties selected. Six months (and $8 million) later they had a fantas- tic solution - on time, on budget, and high quality. Everyone in the project was pleased. They solved the problem by using a high-tech precision scale that would sound a bell and flash lights whenever a toothpaste box weighed less than it should. The line would stop, someone would walk over, remove the defective box, and then press another button to re-start the line. As a result of the new package monitoring process, no empty boxes were being shipped out of the factory. With no more customer complaints, the CEO felt the $8 million was well spent. At the end of the first month, he reviewed the line statistics report and discovered the number of empty boxes picked up by the scale in the first week was con- sistent with projections, however, the next three weeks were zero! The estimated rate should have been at least a dozen boxes a day. He had the engineers check the equipment and they verified the report as accurate. Puzzled, the CEO traveled down to the factory, viewed the part of the line where the precision scale was installed, and observed that just ahead of the new $8 million dollar solution sat a $20 desk fan blowing the empty boxes off the belt and into a bin. He asked the line supervisor what that was about.

“Oh, that,” the supervisor replied, “Bert, the kid from maintenance, put it there because he was tired of walking over, removing the box and re-starting the line every time the bloody bell rang.”
