BLANCO’s stunning new induction hobs have been developed to offer a clever, quick, cost-effective and energy-saving way of cooking. Built to the same high standards as BLANCO’s sinks, hoods and taps, the induction hobs provide a highly energy-efficient and super safe method of cooking.
One of the top models is the stylish, 780 x 520mm, BLANCO BH467830. With four cooking zones and fourteen different heat levels, it provides a variety of heat intensities so different dishes can be prepared at the same time. Three “keep-warm” levels - 41, 70 and 94 degrees Celsius allow for melting chocolate, warming soup and simmering water, for example – all at the same time.
Another clever plus point is the innovative automatic pan recognition feature (illustrated) which ensures that the only part of the hob which heats up is the part with the pot on top! The heating zone automatically heats up as soon as it senses a pan with a smooth, flat base, and “recognisable” diameter and 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 holds, it’s perfect!
This stylish hob also incorporates automatic bridge functions, a grill, a “pause and recall” facility, simple slider controls and a child lock.
The new branding mantra for BLANCO in 2016 reflects the company’s prowess in above-the-worktop perfection; COOK IT – hobs; EXTRACT IT – cooker hoods; LIGHT IT – lighting; and PREP’ IT - sinks and taps.
