An induction hob provides one of the most efficient methods of cooking. Extremely fast, with the ability to accurately control the power, induction hobs contain a strong electromagnet positioned under the surface of the hob. When a zone is activated and a ferrous metal pan is placed on it, a circuit is created which begins a rapid, even transference of heat to the base of the pan and its contents.
Four reasons to consider induction
Induction hobs contain a system that detects when a pan is in place meaning no heat is produced when the hob is empty and there is no flame or element to ignite fumes or cause burns. A great selling point for families with small children.
Flexible cooking zones
Some induction hobs have extended cooking zones that break the boundaries of the usual four area hob. This allows you to use less traditional pots or dishes such as a teppanyaki or griddle plate.
Easy to clean
Induction hobs have a completely flat surface meaning they are easier to clean and maintain with no gaps to hide spills.
Induction cooking is more efficient than traditional methods as heat is channelled into the pan itself, cooking the food faster and using less power.
