Induction Cooking 45

Induction cooking.

Induction cooking.

How induction works.

With a conventional electric hob, the entire cooking surface heats up, which in turn heats the bottom of the pan. Induction hobs use an electromagnet which creates an electromagnetic field when a pan is placed on the cooking surface. The pan becomes hot whilst the surrounding area remains safe to touch.

Time saving.

An induction hob combines the speed of gas with unbeatable ease of use and controllability. Dishes are cooked quicker because the cooking area reaches the desired temperature immediately.

Extremely responsive.

Induction cooking is even more responsive than gas. The temperature can be adjusted exactly and instantly, so precision and controllability is second to none; you can stop a pan from boiling over immediately without taking it off the hob. Pans will reach high heats very quickly, so induction is perfect for searing meat or fish, yet is also gentle enough to melt chocolate.

Energy efficient.

An induction hob automatically senses the size of the pan and only heats the exact area of the pan, using the minimum of energy possible. Temperatures are reached instantaneously, no pre-heating is ever necessary, saving more energy. Induction is the economical way to cook.

Total safety.

Even if the induction hob is accidentally switched on, it will not heat up unless a pot or pan is placed on it. Since only the pan is fully heated, induction hobs are always safe to touch, even after boiling a pan of water.

All AEG-Electrolux Induction Hobs have auto safety switch off, so they will automatically switch themselves off if left on for excessive time periods. All models also come with a child lock for total peace of mind.

Pot recognition indicators.

The cooking zone will not operate when incorrect cookware is used or when no pan is on the hob and the controls are accidentally activated.


The AEG-Electrolux Maxi-sense hob has fewer restrictions using flexible zone cooking sections. Pans can be placed anywhere on the hob as long as part of the pan covers one cross, preventing you being restricted to traditional zones.
