Micro-induction cooktop provides the best in cooktop performance, safety and efficiency. Induction heats as electricity flows through a coil to produce a magnetic field under the ceramic plate. When a ferromagnetic cookware is placed on the ceramic surface, currents are induced in the cookware and instant heat is generated due to the resistance of the pan. Heat is generated to the pan only and no heat is lost. As there are no open flames, inductions are safer to use than conventional burners. Once cookware is removed, all molecular activity ceases and heating is stopped immediately. Designed with a 3-ply capsulated base for superior heat conductivity and even heat distribution. Reinforced with excalibur coating technology, which uses strong and corrosion-resistant alloy - world's toughest non-stick coating especially designed for stainless steel cookware. Our 3-ply capsulated base incorporates stainless steel inner layer bonded by aluminum center core and an induction stainless steel outer layer. This provides superior heat conductivity. When properly cared for, this cookware will provide many years of service.
