Meet induction, the latest breakthrough in cooking technology. Induction cooking is a perfect combination of unbeatable precision, power, and safety. An induction cooktop uses an electromagnetic field to heat the cookware directly rather than heating the hob and the air around it. Click here to read more about how induction cooking works!
As a result, induction cooking is energy-saving and keeps your kitchen staying much cooler than cooking with gas hobs or radiant hobs. Induction is also safer than other conventional forms of cooking and offers you better control over the cooking.
Gas or electric hobs need quite some time to reach the expected heating level. In contrast, Electrolux induction stoves provide precise temperature control that allows you to go from high to low heat instantly so you will never undercook or overcook again.

Like radiant cooktops, induction hobs come with a glass surface. However, induction cooking does not heat the cooking surface, so there will be no spill, splatter, or over-boiling marks on the hob surface. Thanks to that, the cooking surface always stays smooth and can be cleaned effortlessly.
Because of the unique operating principle of induction hobs, only cookware gets heated up and the cooking surface can cool down in no time. Also, there’s no fire involved. Therefore, an induction hob can reduce the risk of fire hazards or burns to the minimum.
Induction cooktops only work with cookware made of or containing ferrous metals such as cast iron or stainless steel. But you don’t need to guess which pot you can use: if you see a coiled spring symbol or a magnet sticks to the bottom of the pan, it works.
