The Induction Features Include:
•Power boost feature
•9 power settings giving instant response and full controllability
through rotary controls
•Residual heat indicator
As the newest and fastest growing fuel type, induction hobs
offer speed, control and energy-efficient credentials being powered
by electro-magnetism. As opposed to other electric hob technologies
such as Ceramic and Sealed plate which are often regarded as less
controllable and slower to heat up than gas, Induction really is a
leap in cooking technology.

"Falcon induction cookers are the
best on the market. It's what I use at home- a 1092 Deluxe
Induction. They have so many great features, from the proper robust
knobs to set the hob temperature, to the oh-so-easy-to-clean
surface, to the brilliant roll-out-grill, not forgetting the
utterly stable temperature of the ovens. Induction uses less energy
than other methods ans is so quick. Love it!"
Induction works via a magnetic reaction that creates heat
when an inductor comes into contact with a suitable pan. The
reaction is instant, resulting in exceptionally fast heat up times.
To find out if your pan will work with induction simply apply a
magnet to its base. If it sticks, you're good to go! Solid copper,
aluminium and some stainless steel pans don't work with induction -
always check before you buy!
Rather than just twisting a knob and hoping for the correct
power, induction is controlled in incremental steps, say from 1 -
9, giving ultimate precision control. Induction is capable of
extremely low simmering points as well as models with a 'power
boost' function bringing content to boiling point in record time!
In addition to this Falcon has now developed two pre-set
temperatures, one for steady melting of butter or chocolate, and
the other an optimum heat for simmering pasta and vegetables.
Since all the heat is directed on the pan, you don't lose
any around its perimeter so you are making around 99% use of the
heat available, compared to just 55% for a gas hob. Built-in pan
recognition sensors automatically turn the hob off when not in use,
thus saving energy and increasing safety.
The hob surface itself retains minimal heat, making it
really safe for those with young children. Most induction hobs will
also have a child lock feature on its controls. Pan detection will
also provide peace of mind for curious children (or forgetful
adults!) by switching off automatically when a pan is not
Easy to Clean
Since the hob top stays cool, spillages will not stick or
burn onto the surface, making cleaning a simple wipe-down
