Induction is a term that refers to a particular method of generating heat. Conventional electric stoves use radiant heat to cook food. Microwave ovens use microwaves or small energy waves to do the same. An induction cooker uses electromagnetism to cook food inside the pot or pan.
In induction, there is an electromagnetic interaction between the burner and the pot or pan itself. If there are no pots or pans on the stove, lighting the stove alone will not generate heat. The key to making an induction cooker work is to use a specific type of pan. You need to use a magnetic pot or pan to generate the electromagnetic response to cooking the food. Usually, this means the use of cast iron or magnetic stainless steel. A simple experiment is to keep the refrigerator magnet on the pot and pan. If it sticks, the pan should work on the induction cooker.
