Using Solar power for induction cooker

Can you image? Using solar power to power up induction cooker rated at 1kW-2kW ? (The actual power consumption is depended on your temperature control selection). For those who are not familiar with induction cooker, it is  more energy efficient than gas or electric cooker.According to manufacturer and end users, 90% of energy is directly to the pan while gas delivers only 55% heat to the pan .The electric cooker is only 65% efficiency.

Recommendation : Use only high efficiency equipment such as induction cooker if you intend to use precious solar power from your home :-)

    Let us wait Oct 2010 for FEED IN TARIFF table up on parliment. Feed in tariff is better option for us to install solar power in the least cost and more affordable way to environment as well.We just grid our solar power with local utility n export to system instead of usig expensive battery bank storage:-)

  5. Are you using a solar panel to power your cooker? If not your post is just misleading..

  6. It is impossible to power up an induction cooker with merely a small piece of solar panel only.
    FYI, This house is installed up to 4kW off grid Solar panels and i dont see have any problem to use solar to powered up cooker (1.5kW) because it is have been running well for few years!!!

  7. can we use for boiling and frying?
    and can we use inside home?

  8. No Problem for boiling or frying using induction cooker. You need to select correct frying pan (induction cooker used) and of course you can use inside home or kitchen as well.

  9. can i use at night time or rainy season?winter?
    and.please give me the cost and other details of the product
