The induction hob represents the advanced technology for domestic kitchens. Induction is a simple physical principle where an electronic circuit, fitted in the hob, powers and controls a coil that creates induced currents. When you place a pot on the hob, these currents pass through it to heat it up immediately. The food in the pot captures the heat generated and is cooked in the traditional manner. Thanks to this simple physical principle, the induction hob does not create heat and is extremely easy to adjust; as a result one can prepare food in a way never thought possible before. For example, it is possible to melt caramel or chocolate without resorting to a bain marie, or boil two litres of water in just 5 minutes rather than the 9/10 minutes it takes on a traditional hob.
