ABOUT INDUCTION COOKING


FAGOR is the worldwide leader in built-in induction cooktops. The ultimate cooking experience, induction adds a sleek and streamlined design to complement any kitchen. Long revered as the number one choice of gourmet cooks and culinary academies, now you can enjoy state of the art performance cooking in your own home.


Induction is the only cooking surface that not only provides ultra rapid & precise heating, but also saves an astounding amount of energy. An induction cooktop very closely resemblances a glass top or radiant electric cooking surface, however, the operation and components are quite different.


How does it work?
Induction cooktops contain a series of elements beneath the surface called induction coils, which operate on magnetic principals. These coils generate magnetic fields that induct a warming reaction in steel and iron-based pots or pans.


What is different is that a magnetic reaction between the coils and the cookware placed on the surface is what generates heat – not the surface itself. This means that the cookware heats the food, not the stovetop!


Benefits of Induction

  • Safer: The glass surface remains relatively cool to the touch – there is no open flame, red-hot coil or other radiant heat source to ignite. This also helps prevent accidental burns in the kitchen.
  • Efficient: Induction cooking uses 90% of the energy produced. Induction recognizes the base of cookware, directly heating only the diameter of the pot, so very little energy is wasted. On the contrary gas delivers an estimated 55% of the energy paid and traditional electric only about 65%.
  • Quick: heating and adjustments are imminent, saving you up to 50% of the cooking time when compared to more traditional methods.
  • Even Heating: Hot spots and rings are avoided because the bottom of your cookware heats uniformly.
  • Easy Cleaning: the surface is flat and smooth; spills and overflows do not stick to the cooktop, so they can easily be wiped away.
