Electrolux Induction Cooktop

By Andrew Liszewski

The Electrolux Infinite Cooking System which is scheduled to be available in the fall of this year uses induction technology which basically means the pot itself becomes the heating element while the rest of the cooktop remains cool. By generating a magnetic field heat is only created when the electromagnetic element comes into contact with the steel cookware. Since the cooking surface only responds to the precise diameter of the pot being used the rest of the cooktop remains cool and safe to touch.

The system also allows you precise control over the cooking temperature in the pot and apparently requires little to no preheat time before you’re ready to cook. All that coupled with the sleek, knob-less design makes this a stove you would be proud to show off to your gadget-loving friends.

    Very neat idea. However, those who have cheaper pots will be out of luck as it does not work with aluminum pots / pans.

    Nor does it work with glass such as Pyrex. However, I’m pretty sure that, at least for now, those who have the money to afford induction burners also have the money for steel cookware.

    This technology has been around for a long time. They never caught on in the US back in the day. True, only higher quality pots and pans will work.
    My cousin repairs appliances and told me that it would boil a pot of water in about a minute. Pretty amazing.

    “luxury”, “money to afford”?!? Induction burners are cheap! You can pick up a Tatung induction cooktop over at NewEgg for ~$75, with a Sunpentown going for ~$110. Hardly expensive. I’ve had my Sunpentown for 3 months now & haven’t touched my conventional stove since.
