As a bona fide appliance nerd my fascination with induction cooktops for home kitchens is ongoing.
If it were possible, I’d be thrilled to install a slick Kitchen Sink of the Future and pair it with Gaggenau’s new induction cooktop, just out in England. For some time now, we’ve had cooking by magnetic heat transfer which can boil water almost instantly. Reports from users are generally positive and enthusiastic with some commenting that they even prefer it to gas. What’s different with the Gaggenau all over induction cooktop is the absence of defined “burner” areas. Essentially, it’s a full-surface induction that eliminates any need to fit the size of the pan to the size of the heat source. The entire surface is a cooking zone with sensors that automatically recognize the position and shape of pots. Touch controls are used to adjust heat settings and cooking time. In addition to shape-shifting, this baby will turn itself off. While it’s unclear how long it takes for Gaggenau to bring this to the U.S., or other manufacturers to adopt and perfect this technology, it looks to me to be a significant improvement for induction cooktops and the wave of the future — albeit at a premium cost.
