In recent years people are buzzing about saving the planet, green technologies, energy efficiency etc. So the people from De Dietrich have made a very efficient induction wok hob which they say is the most efficient cooktop in the world.
The thing is that technology is based on inductive materials and there is no heat transfer between the wok pan and the cooktop. The inductive process is so effective that it can bring water to boil in just 15 seconds with really small energy waste of about 10%. The induction works only on the material that the wok pan is made from, giving out no heat, so when you touch it, even though it has been working, it is still cold. It is a new type of heating that uses copper induction coils that generate high frequency electromagnetic fields. All of this makes induction heating both, energy efficient and safe that makes it perfect for the kitchen.
The hob is made with touch control surface made out of glass, giving you the ability to adjust the temperature and adjust according to what you are cooking, also there is a timer and a control where you can save up to 3 preset options of your favorite cooking with the temperature and time it takes to do the dish. There are also sensors that detect if there is an overflow; in that case the hob turns itself off. Also there is a child lock, small pan detection if the pan that you are using is not suitable for the hub and small object detection that detects if there are small objects like cooking spoons instead of cookware.
All of this makes the new induction coking panels more suitable for usage around children, and also they can give you a good feeling knowing that you are using energy efficient cooktop.
