The induction cooker works on the basis of an electromagnet that creates
a powerful, high-frequency electromagnetic field. When cookware consisting
of magnetic material (e.g. iron) is placed on the induction cooker, the
electromagnetic field transfers energy to the bottom of the cookware,
which causes the cookware and the food inside it to become hot. The
amount of heat generated in the cookware is controlled by varying the
strength of the electromagnetic field. When the strength of the
electromagnetic field is changed, the temperature of the cookware changes
Advantages of the induction cooker:
Safe: the induction cooker does not make use of an open flame or fire.
It also has a number of safety features, which allow you to enjoy cooking
with your family whenever you want.
Fast: in induction cooking, the cookware serves as the heat source. This
results in much faster and more even heat transfer, shortening the
cooking time by more than 1/3 compared to conventional cooking.
Versatile: the induction cooker has 2 preset cooking modes, each with
its own optimal heating pattern. These modes allow you to prepare a
great variety of nutritious meals.
Very user friendly: the simple and interactive control panel and display
allow you to easily adjust the settings at the touch of a button.
Comfortable: the induction cooking process is smoke-free and produces
less grease. Moreover, the cooker and the surrounding area stay cool.
This allows you to cook in a cool and comfortable environment.
Portable: the induction cooker has a compact design and the cooking
plate stays cool. This means the appliance is always safe to use and
allows you to cook anywhere in your home.
