Aroma Induction Cooktop
The Aroma Induction Cooktop (Model AID-509) is a portable induction hob that takes advantage of the groundbreaking induction technology. It is rated at 1500 watts and measures 11.6 x 2.2 x 13 inches.
Induction cooking is the safest, fastest and most efficient way to cook. The portability and the small footprint of this unit also makes it usable in a wide variety of environments such as patios, gardens, camping, RV’s, boats, small dorms or just as an additional hob when you need to add more cooking space.
Induction technology cooks without any flames and uses electromagnetic power to directly heat the induction ready cookware itself instead. As the Aroma induction cooktop itself does not heat, hot food spills are a thing of the past. The smooth opaque ceramic cooktop surface also allows for any spills or mess to be simply wiped away with a damp cloth.
Induction technology will heat much faster than electric hobs or gas. Repeated experiments also demonstrate that the technology operates up to 70-percent more efficiently than gas and electric. This means cheaper fuel bills and less wasted heat being poured into the air – a great benefit if you have to cook in a small confined kitchen or dorm.
Induction cooktops will only work when induction-ready cookware is being used. This portable appliance is sensitive to induction cookware and will automatically shut-off when a pan is removed. Not only does this save again on fuel bills but adds a nice safety feature to the appliance.
The digital controls of the Aroma AID-509 Induction Cooktop are very user friendly and provide for 7 separate heat settings (a warm setting and one though to six for various cooking levels). The unit is very reactive to changes in heat settings changing from simmer to boil and back to simmer again in a few seconds.
There is also a programmable timer that is built into the unit which allows for up to 180 minutes of cooking time.
