Induction technology is more responsive than gas orelectric, offering the utmost cooking flexibility. Sensors automatically detect the presence of magnetic cookware, activate the induction field and adjust it to the exact sizeof the pan. Using electromagnetic energy, heat is transferred directly to the cookware — so the cooktop remains cooler for easy cleanup. Induction allows for more precise control when cooking — you can instantly adjust the heat to a delicate simmer or bring it to a quick boil. And with induction technology, the cookware heats more quickly than on gasor electric cooktops — so cook times are faster, meaning less energy is used.
