The Salton Portable Induction Cooktop is the latest in portable induction cooking surfaces and technology. Its fast and precise technology is changing the way we cook.
Salton Portable Induction Cooktop
This portable induction cooktop is faster, responsive, safer and even more efficient than the more conventional gas or electric methods of cooking.
One of the great advantages of induction cooking is the speed. In just a matter of minutes this 1800 watt stove can have boiling water for pasta and rice. It can take as much as three times as long to biol the same amount of water on a traditional gas or electric hob.
A second advantage is that induction stoves are very responsive and extremely precise. The second the burner is turned off, the water will stop boiling. If you turn the unit back on again it will start boiling again.
How Does Induction Cooking Work?
Induction cooking is high efficient as the cooking only takes place where the induction ready pan touches the cooktop.
A magnetic pan has to be used with induction cooking. When the burner is turned on, an electromagnetic field is applied to the saucepan. This generates heat energy within the pan only.
Everything else outwith the pan including the stove areas not in contact with the pan will be cool to the touch. Not only does this make the method extremely efficient in energy terms but it also means that it is very safe with no flames or electric rings to burn fingers or hands.
