This precision induction cooktop cooks food faster, safer and cheaper because it is more energy-efficient (uses up to 90% less energy) than traditional gas or electric ranges. It makes use of a series of induction coils that generate magnetic fields to produce a warming reaction in steel and iron-based pots and pans, heating cookware and not the cooktop surface. This versatile countertop appliance lets you boil, simmer, deep-fry, stir-fry, saute, steam and sear, slow cook, barbecue, melt and grill. Plus, it's also easy to clean--food never burns or sticks during cooking. Simple to operate, unit has a digital LCD control panel that allows you to program cooking times and set precise temperatures from "Warm" to "Sear" in 10 degree increments so you can prepare almost any food to perfection in less time. Features an automatic shut off function and requires no coils or open flame, eliminating the risk of fire. UL listed. Imported. One-year warranty.
