Induction heater

Estimate reading time: < 1 minute

I will try to make an induction heater from common induction cooker. Ron Soyland have already warned me that it will perhaps be impossible due to too low frequency of the induction cookers (60khz, needed is several hundred khz). I will try anyway, it would be so easy to just replace the coil that it is worth of trying it! I started with burning the IGBT transistor, so now I wait for another from China..

Small induction cooker I will use for the experiment. It cost $25 (used). Notice feet of my daughter, she loves the experiments more than I 😉

Inside.. I had expected the coil would be made from much thicker wire..
