The Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop Pro offers a faster, simpler and more versatile way to cook. Induction cooking uses an innovative cooking technology that is sure to change the way you cook in future.
Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop
The Fagor induction cooktop is a lightweight and highly portable cooking solution which can be used in a variety of cooking environments. Whether you need the hob as an extension to your main hob or need a cooking solution for an RV or student dorm, the Fagor is versatile enough to meet all these needs.
The Fagor Pro portable burner contains a series of magnetic coils just beneath the surface of the hob. These coils generate magnetic fields that induct a warming reaction in steel and iron based pots and pans when the cooktop is turned on.
The magnetic reaction between the coils and the cookware placed on the surface of the stove is what generates the heat. It is therefore the cookware itself and not the surface of the cooktop that is heating the food. This in turn leads to a more precise and energy-efficient heat transfer during cooking.

The Fagor Induction Pro hob is stylish unit with clean lines and a solid glass-top finish. It can be operated using easy to use digital touch screen controls.
To commence cooking place a pan on the unit and press the “start” button. This will place the cooktop in standby mode. As long as you present an pan to the hob which is induction ready then the cooktop will commence the cooking process.

Induction cooks so much faster than electric or gas. Tests on induction cooktops highlight that it is 50% faster when increasing or decreasing the heat to a pan. Going from a simmer to a boil is achieved on a portable induction stove in a matter of seconds.
One of the main features of induction cooking is the amount of energy which is saved in the process. With gas cooking the gas burner will heat the pan as well as the surrounding air.
