Question: What's the difference between ceramic cooktops and induction cooktops?

Ceramic cooktops work thanks to heating elements underneath the glass surface which warm up and transfer heat to the selected cooking zone/cooktop ring Induction cooktops, on the other hand, use circular coils which generate a magnetic field that induces heat onto a pan made from ferrous material only when it is physically placed onto the cooktop itself. These cooktops are more efficient and extra safe. Both types of hob are known for being extremely easy to clean.
