BLANCO ceramic and induction hob range
Designed to suit the way you cook.
The induction hob provides one of the most efficient methods of cooking. Extremely fast and responsive with the ability to accurately control the power, induction hobs contain a strong electromagnetic positioned under the surface of the hob. When a suitable pan is placed on it, a circuit is created which begins a rapid and even transference of heat to the base of the pan and its contents.
Correct pan recognition
The Induction hob heating zone will only heat up if it senses a pan with a smooth, flat base, suitable diameter and ferrous metal content. This ensures that the hob will not heat up if smaller items, such as metal spoons, are accidentally left on the induction zones. The way to tell if a saucepan is Induction hob friendly is to hold a magnet to the bottom. If it is magnetic, it is safe to use.
The speed of induction cooking is one of its major benefits. Contents in the pan will heat up extremely quickly and the heat element is very easy to control thanks to up to 13 different power levels for absolute precision.
With induction hobs, only the base of the pan and the contents are heated. The ceramic glass remains much cooler than the traditional ceramic of gas hobs. This means there is little residual heat left over once cooking is finished making induction hobs much safer. All BLANCO hobs have a built-in Child lock safety feature. This function can be set to avoid accidental switching on of the hob.
Induction hobs are extremely energy efficient as they only heat up the base of the pan and its contents saving you money on your electricity bills. The efficiency of energy transfer for an induction cooker is 84% versus 40% when cooking with gas.
Cleaning an induction hob could not be easier. There are no parts to remove or difficult nooks and crannies to try and negotiate with a cloth, just a flat, non-porous surface which you can wipe over quickly.
