Built-in gas hob that comes with the safety flame device will have the gas supply cut off if the flame on the burner head is extinguished by a strong wind.
Tempered glass is a safety glass which when broken, the glass becomes small fragments or oval shaped pebbles instead of sharp pointed pieces when broken like normal glass.
By default, all Zanussi gas hob can use the normal LPG gas. If the customer is using natural gas, then he should inform the Electrolux service to change the gas nozzle on the hob to suit for natural gas usage. If the gas nozzle is not changed, then the flame from the burners will be small.
An induction hob creates an electromagnetic field when a metal pan is placed on the cooking surface. This electromagnetic field will then heat up the pan. A ceramic hob works by using heating elements under the glass to heat up the metal pan.
For cooking with an induction hob, you will not see a red glow on the hob glass surface. The pan becomes hot but the hob smooth glass surface outside the diameter of the pan remains safe to touch. However, there is residual heat after long hours of cooking.
For cooking with a ceramic hob, you will see a red glow surrounding the pan and both the metal pan and the smooth glass surface feels hot when touch.
For cooking with Induction hob, you should use only pots and pans which have base made of iron properties that can attract magnet as it uses an electromagnetic field to heat up. For cooking with a ceramic hob, any pots and pans that are made of glass, aluminum, stainless steel, clay can be used for ceramic cooking.
Yes, an induction cooker is faster than a traditional electric cooktop and gas cooker. It allows instant control of cooking energy similar to gas burners. Other cooking methods use flames or red-hot heating elements but induction heating only heats the pot.
No, an induction cooker transfers electrical energy by induction from a coil of wire when the electric current flowing through it. The current creates a changing magnetic field and produces heat. The pot gets hot and heats its contents by heat conduction. The cooking surface is made of a glass-ceramic material which is a poor heat conductor, so only a little heat is lost through the bottom of the pot which incurred minimal wastage of energy when compared with open flame cooking and a normal electric cooktop. The induction effect does not heat the air around the vessel, resulting in further energy efficiency.
An induction cooker is just a source of heat, thus, cooking with an induction cooker has no difference from any form of heat. However, heating is much faster with an induction cooker.
The hob surface is made of ceramic glass, which is very strong and it tolerates very high temperatures and sudden temperature changes. Ceramic glass is very tough, but if you drop a heavy item of cookware, it may crack. In everyday use, however, it is unlikely to crack.
Yes, induction cooker is safer to use than conventional cookers because there are no open flames and electric heaters. Cooking cycles can be set by required cooking duration and temperature, it would automatically switch-off after the cooking cycle has been completed to avoid overcooked food & the risk of damaging the cooker.
