Induction Cooking Demo

  • Wednesday, September 21, 2022, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Join us for this in-person class to learn how induction cooking works and try your hand at cooking with electromagnets! with Rupert Spies and Guillermo Metz 

See how much you can do with a very affordable single-burner induction cooktop. Rupert and Guillermo will show you how induction works -- you'll be able to test out the superior power and control of induction and see how easily it can do things like boil water and melt chocolate, without burning it! 

This is an in-person class -- masks are no longer required by CCETC based on guidance from the Tompkins County Health Department, but they are still encouraged.
