A silica aerogel sheet with a very low thermal conductivity is used to suppress the temperature increase of the Cu coil in an induction cooker by reducing the heat flow from the heat source (cooking pot). It is found that the temperature of the Cu coil is reduced significantly by the insertion of an insulation sheet between the heat source and the Cu coil, demonstrating the effectiveness of the insulation sheet in the suppression of the heat flow between the cooking pot and the coil. Furthermore, the temperature of the cooking pot increases more rapidly with the use of the insulation sheet, allowing for an increased efficiency of the induction cooker.
