Are rapidly fluctuating current loads harmful for off-grid inverter?

I recently purchased a single plate induction hotplate for use on my 5kw off-grid system. When using this appliance even at a steady and specific wattage (displayed on the unit from 800 - 2100w), I've noticed that on my Victron inverter display panel, the AC draw fluctuates up and down within a range of about 1000w. I assume, without much research, that this is a characteristic of inverter cookers and how they maintain certain settings. My question is: will semi-rapid and quite broad fluctuations in AC draw be harmful to the inverter?

As far as I know there would be no detrimental effect on the inverter/charger
