I'm using Nichrome wire for a heating application and just using some scavenged parts from a slow cooker. What would be the easiest way to turn on/off the Nichrome? I'm thinking of just having a microcontroller switch 120VAC via a solid state relay (SSR) which would feed the Nichrome wire directly.
Is there any inductance issues I need to worry about? The nichrome is just one long strip and not coiled in any way.
