Benefits of Induction Cooking for Tiny homes

Table of contents

When living in a tiny house, space is at a premium. This means that every inch of your house and specifically the kitchen is vital and needs to be used wisely. Commonly the source for cooking in a tiny house is a two-burner propane gas stove. This requires space designated to house the propane tanks and countertop space for the burners to be permanently mounted. Additionally, if you want to cook outside of your tiny house, you'll need a separate grill, and again this will require dedicated space for storage when not in use. Newr has a new approach to these problems with its battery-powered smart induction burner with smartphone integration and expandable cooking surface—Chef. Here are 6 advantages of having a Chef as your cooking source and 6 disadvantages of using something else

Cook on the move, with peace of mind

Chef is battery powered induction burner that can add peace of mind knowing you will be able to park your tiny house and cook even in the most remote locations. The battery capacity is targeted to be capable of cooking a day's worth of meals, so, no need to worry about rustic campsites or off-grid locations. If you plan to travel with your tiny house and stop at sites without electrical hookups then Chef is the ideal choice.

Space Savings

Tiny house living requires choices, sometimes difficult choices for the usage of the all-important kitchen space-especially countertop space, like what size kitchen to have, what refrigerator, or how many coffee mugs. Too often some of the decisions are influenced by the stove, well not anymore. Chef is portable, storable, and can be set up on almost any flat surface. So if you are pressed with where to put your two-burner stove, just remember Chef can be stored when not in use to free up that precious countertop space.

Cooking at State Parks

Do you travel to state or national parks, state or national forests, or wildlife preserves? If so, likely you have been to one of these beautiful places during a fire ban or with no open flame. Chef is an induction burner so you can cook your meals even during the driest of climates without the worry of having a potential ignition source.

Safe Around Small Children

If you live in a household with small children then likely you have had to say “don't touch the stove it's still HOT”. Chef provides its cooking using an induction burner. The principle behind induction is it only heats the ferromagnetic cookware directly and not the adjacent surfaces. This means that the glass is cool to the touch shortly after removing the hot cookware. If cooking safely around kids is important to you then Chef is an ideal choice.

Standard Outlet Charging

Chef can be charged off of any standard electrical outlet (US 110-120V) or by using solar panels or buy using any means of portable power, generator, or battery pack or by the alternator in your vehicle. The flexibility and availability of electricity mean that almost anywhere on the grid or off-grid Chef can be easily charged. So if you need a reliable cooking source that can be conveniently recharged, then Chef is a great solution.

Water Resistant

How many times has the perfect day for a cookout been ruined by a sudden rain shower? Or a tailgater's planned meal been foiled by the wind? Chef is a water-resistant cooking appliance so even the rainiest of days won't affect the performance. Additionally, Chef is an induction burner which isn't affected by the windiest of days. Whenever you are planning to cook outdoors, turn and grab you Chef, so you know you'll always be able to cook in the rainiest and windiest of days.

On the Go Cooking

If you want to cook a meal on a grill or stove, you are subject to where the cooking appliance is located. If you want to entertain and have a dinner party or cookout, you will be standing with your appliance instead of with your guests. This is very similar to cooking over a fire or in front of a fireplace akin to what was done hundreds of years ago. Time to get with the now and get Chef!

Cable-less Cooking

Today's mainstream stovetops and grills require plugs, hoses, and cords to be able to cook your food. This means you are anchored to the supply source. It is not too dissimilar to a dog on a leash. The dog is always happiest when it is off the leash and able to run—time to cook freely with Chef.

Cook in Power Outages

Today's best induction stovetop has recently achieved a milestone rating of 125kWh/yr; however, this is limited to the cost of energy at the time of cooking. With the ability to couple a battery to your cooking appliance, you will be able to charge during off-peak times further reducing the cost of cooking to achieve the lowest possible energy rating of an induction cooking device.

Scalability & Flexibility 

The latest grills and stovetops have many sizes and options, but they don't have the flexibility to expand the cooking surface by adding additional devices. This means that the maximum size of the cooking surface is limited to the overall device dimensions. Why not take inspiration from the popular kids building blocks and have an appliance that can be connected together to change the overall size, this is what Chef can do!
