Induction Hobs are the latest in eco-friendly cooking technology, offering the control of gas with the convenience and style of the ceramic hob. They are significantly more energy efficient than both. Induction hobs are much safer in use because they operate with magnetic fields rather than heat transfer. This means that the surface of the induction hob itself, even when delivering maxiumum power, does not get hot enough to burn. As a result induction hobs are particularly safe for the elderly, or those with younger families, or those with cats who may wander over cooking worktops.
