Induction Cooktop and Candy Making

Posted by ChefSuzi none (My Page) on

Considering an all induction cooktop or going hybrid (induction/thermal). Need to learn about induction and candy making with the need for maintaining a steady temperature for up to 30" at 300degF for candy--English toffee or peanut brittle--as examples. I understand it's not an issue reaching the temperature per se, but the length of time while holding a steady temperature. Also are there any issues with induction for maintaining a boiling water bath for 10-25" for canning, depending on what's being canned. Also want to make sure I'm asking the right questions. Thanks for any guidance/experience with these questions.
