Smeg, one of the forerunners in induction appliances, has just released a new collection of cooktops.
December 3rd, 2010
The collection ranges in size from three and four zone models, a larger 90cm version, or for the dedicated cook, a 100cm design with the convenience of four cooking zones side by side, to avoid having to reach over hot pots.
Induction technology works via a magnetic field that heats the actual saucepan or pot – not the cooktop. One of its safety advantages is that it has no naked flame and automatically switches off if there is an overflow of liquid or if a pot boils dry.
The new Smeg collection of induction cooktops offers a ‘power boost’ feature, cross-hair surface design and easy to use fingertip slide controls.
The cross-hair surface design identifies the size of the pot, so that only that specific area is inducted, while the ‘boost’ capability means that each cooking zone is delivered a power boost of 3000 watts to bring the area to the desired temperature ultra fast.
The Smeg ‘Boost’ induction cooktops, in black glass with bevelled edges, are designed to gently slope to the surface of the benchtop to create a near-seamless work surface.
