Induction or Ceramic; how do you choose?

BLANCO has a wide range of Induction hobs here we explain what you should consider when deciding if Induction is right for you.

How does Induction work?

The induction hob provides the most efficient method of cooking, this is because with induction cooking, a magnetic field instantly transforms your pan into the heat source. The coil beneath the ceramic glass does not heat up during this process which means all of the energy is transmitted to the base of the pan only. Therefore the pan heats only the food, not the hob. BLANCO induction hobs eliminate hot spots due to its all heat cooking zones meaning that the whole base of the pan is evenly heated.

Will it suite my Kitchen?

Ceramic hob refers to the finish of the hob rather than its functionality. Both standard electric hobs and induction hobs are made with a ceramic glass and fitted flush with your worktop giving a stylish and sleek look. BLANCO also offer stainless steel trims with the ceramic models to match with your stainless steel appliances. They are the perfect addition to your contemporary kitchen design but will of course work well in most styles of kitchen. Why not combine modern technology and convenience with a tradition kitchen style?

Do I need special pans?

On a standard ceramic hob you can use pretty much any saucepans. You only need to consider different pans if you are purchasing and Induction hob, this is because of the method in which induction hobs work by creating a magnetic field. Cast iron pans and any black metal or iron pans will work on an induction cooking surface. Stainless steel pans will work on an induction cooking surface if the base of the pan is a magnetic grade of stainless steel. 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 ideal to use.

Have I got enough space?

his will of course impact the size of hob you choose. BLANCO have a range of 4 ring hobs and the larger 6 ring hobs depending on your cooking needs. Also consider the depth of the hob as it needs to be sunk into your work surface. All BLANCO hobs fit into a standard size work surface.
