You'll find plenty of space for pots and pans on the Culina UBIND90BV Induction Hob
This appliance has five cooking zones
, with a centre burner that could easily accommodate a wok
forming a part of the black ceramic glass surface.
Induction hobs are noted for resistance wire heating and micro-computerised control
, with a multitude of precise power options
Electro-magnets are underneath the surface
, which warm up the pan itself rather than the entire hob, which relies on indirect radiation.
Because of this, induction pots and pans are needed
. If you're unsure whether your cookware is compatible, simply hold a magnet to each item's base and see if it attracts.
The hob has a control panel which responds to touch
, where the power levels and zones are accessed but there are other features that are of use.
A setting timer
can be programmed and there's a child lock
, along with a boost control function
that lasts for five minutes at the highest level.
Keep warm mode
will stop your food from getting cold, with a pause button
to halt the process also available. A capital 'H' letter appears as a residual heat indicator
The temperature ranges from delicate warming to boiling water
, with stir frying and searing of succulent steaks made easy.
