According to the senior design manager for Electrolux Asia Pacific, Scott King, the versatility this product provides “allows you to stir-fry, deep-fry, braise, roast, steam and simmer by fusing the benefits of traditional Asian wok cooking with modern induction technology”.

It seems like magic but in today’s modern kitchen, it’s possible to cook with no flames or heat transferred from the surface of the cooktop. Blanco’s new black touch-sensitive surface uses sophisticated magnetic technology and induction coils to transfer energy from under the surface to a cast-iron or steel pan to generate heat. And, as an important safety feature, the surface cools down quickly. Fast and economical, it takes just half the time of a conventional electric cooktop to boil water using about half the energy.
