Cooktops

Question: Why don't induction zones light up when they are on?

Induction cooking zones do not light up like ceramic cooking zones. Induction cooktops work according to a principle of direct contact with pans, so it's actually the pan which heats up, rather than the cooking zone beneath. The actual base of the pan is where the heat is generated to cook the food.
