Induction is faster, safer, cleaner and more energy efficient than any other cooking technology. This cooktop is only activated once an induction-ready pot or pan is placed on the surface and the cooktop surface remains cool, creating a safe and efficient cooking experience. Adjust the temperature using the precise control knob located at the front of the unit. Powered by 1800 watts and up to 3 hours of timed cooking, this induction cooktop is perfect for everyday use. Check if your pots are induction compatible with the included induction tester.
