AGA Induction Cooking Explained
Powered by electromagnetism, induction technology heats only the pan and its contents, providing up to 90% efficiency. The induction hob also features pan identification that automatically detects when cookware is removed. This makes it easy to keep a pan at minimal heat without fear of burning, and the cooking zones will automatically turn off when pans are removed – saving energy and improving safety.
Fast And Responsive
It can take as little as five seconds for water to begin boiling on an induction hob, making it a much quicker option than gas or electric ceramic cooking. Reducing the pan to simmering is equally fast and the responsive nature of induction is quickly making it a firm favourite in professional kitchens.
Since there are no naked flames and only the pan and its contents are heated, induction is considered to be the safest hob option available. After very long cooking spells, however, there is a possibility that the hob surface may become too hot to touch, so AGA has taken the extra precaution of including a Residual Heat Indicator, which provides an automatic visual warning that a zone should not be touched if it rises above 60°C. The addition of zones with child lock facility also prevents little fingers from coming to harm on the hob.
One of the many benefits of induction is its ability to improve your cooking results. Because the ferrous materials within the cookware heat at the same level uniformly, you don’t get any hot spots. That means you’re less likely to burn the contents or cook half the dish to a crisp while leaving the rest raw and you don’t need to stir as often to achieve even heating throughout.
Easy To Clean
Induction hobs are easier to clean because the cooking surface is flat and smooth. In addition, because the surface isn’t heated, any spillages won’t burn on and so are easy to wipe clean. People with cardiac pacemakers or implanted insulin pumps must make sure that their implants are not affected by the induction hob (the frequency range of the induction hob is 20-60kHz).
