Induction: cutting-edge technology, safe and energy-saving
If you go for an induction hob, you will be using the most cutting-edge form of heating. And there are plenty of good reasons to do so:
- Quick: Induction technology is based on an electromagnetic alternating field that directly transfers energy to the bottom of the pan, where the energy is converted to heat. Thanks to its fast response, your ingredients and dishes will be ready in record time.
- Energy-efficient: You can boil one litre of water in around two minutes – this saves up to 30% more energy compared to a hob. The hob also switches off automatically when you remove the pan.
- Safe and easy to clean: Because heat is only generated on the bottom of the pan, the glass around the cooking zone stays more or less cold. This stops you burning anything to the surface, meaning a quick wipe with a damp cloth is all it takes to stay clean.
- Flexible: Hobs with MaxiFlex shine thanks to their intelligent technology. With the latest induction hobs, you can use pots and pans of all shapes and sizes on any of the cooking zones. The system detects the size of the pan and automatically adjusts the cooking zone accordingly. You can therefore maintain flexibility and decide which size pot you place on which zone.
