How much Temperature & Time to cook by Induction Stove?

Induction cooking heats a cooking vessel by electrical induction, instead of by thermal conduction from a flame, or an electrical heating element. Which I hope everybody knows to know more about how induction cooking click here

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the efficiency of energy transfer for an induction cooker is 84%, versus 74% for a smooth-top non-induction electrical unit, for an approximate 12% saving in energy for the same amount of heat transfer

The below is the efficiency on various stove

Type Efficiency
Gas 40%
Electric 74%
Induction 84%
