What’s an induction hob? Induction hobs heat the pan not the hob using an electrical current. Induction hobs can heat a pan faster than a traditional gas or electric hob, and are more energy efficient. They’re also easier to clean, as you can wipe the hob shortly after using it. Remember, not all ceramic hobs are induction hobs. An induction hob can only be used with induction compatible pans. You can use induction kettles (which are faster to boil than normal kettles) with induction hobs. The fine degree of control over the power of the hob is also good for tasks like melting chocolate or making a sauce. Induction cooking gives almost instant heat that’s generated directly in your cookware, allowing you to precisely control the temperature at which you cook. Great for multitasking, the iQ700 EX275FXB1E from Siemens possesses a choice of 2 or 4 induction zones for flexible cooking and effective heating, no matter what’s on the menu. Pots and pans come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, so thanks to flexInduction, you have the flexibility to adjust your cooktop to match. As well as 2 traditionally arranged cooking zones, the EX275FXB1E also comes with 2 induction zones that can be joined to create a single large zone. Your cookware can then be positioned anywhere within this area, and still receive quick, even heat. Another advanced feature of the EX275FXB1E is the powerBoost function that increases power by up to 50%, saving almost 35% of the time it would normally take to heat up pots or cook large quantities. The innovative touchSlider allows you to control the temperature of the cooking zones either by directly tapping the operating scale or sliding your finger along it. Sensor-based heat regulation takes place in half levels up to the maximum setting of 9. Additional features: 2-stage residual heat indicators Timer with automatic shut-off for all zones Re-start function Energy consumption display Please note: there should be a minimum height clearance of 65cm between an electric hob and the cooker hood above it.
