4 Overview
Induc=on cooking is one of the most efficient and safe ways of cooking. Induc'on cooking uses magne'c fric'on that bounce from under the cooktop surface to cookware placed on it. The magne'c construc'on of the cookware becomes part of the electrical circuit, gathers energy and becomes hot. The pan becomes the burner. Read More: Why Is Induc'on Cooking Be?er?

5 Induction 2014 - 2015
The end of 2014 had three new product releases by Jenn-­‐Air, Miele and Bosch Benchmark in Induc'on Ranges. The innova'on of 2015 should be focused more on cooktop collec'ons or smaller cook tops grouped together. Jenn-­‐Air -­‐ JIS1450D Yale Appliance + Lighting

Benefits
8 Benefits
Efficiency: 90% Induc'on vs. 60% Gas vs. 55% Electric Speed: Fastest to boil Control: Instant simmer Child-­‐Safe: The unit cannot turn on without a metal pan. The surface does not remain hot as there is only residual heat from the pan, not an element Less Heat Emission: Requires less ven'ng power and can be downdraTed, unlike professional gas. Yale Appliance + Lighting
9 Induction vs. Professional Gas
Although professional gas is popular in high end kitchens, induc=on is a beUer cooking product. Induc'on does emit nearly the heat of gas and can be down draTed unlike professional gas. You also do not need a huge professional hood with induc'on. Yale Appliance + Lighting
10 Induction vs. Professional Gas
Electrolux Kitchen
The benefit to induc'on is not limited to less ven'ng and be?er efficiency. When we have chefs cooking in our Electrolux kitchen, they will always choose induc'on over pro gas. The speed and response of induc'on is simply superior to even the ho?est professional gas unit. Watch a video on the differences between Induc=on and Pro Gas Cooking Yale Appliance + Lighting

We have 25 induc'on cooking products on display with 6 actually working. Have a look at induc'on in use: Chef Kurt Von Kahle Demonstrates Induc'on Cooking Chef Andy Husbands Cooks on a Wolf Induc'on Cooktop New Thermador Freedom Induc'on Cooktop Review Yale Appliance + Lighting

What to Consider
13 What to Consider
Burner Output/Configura=on: Look for the higher wa?age ‘super’ burners as they will cook faster. Bridge elements or connectors between two elements are a nice op'on for bigger pans. Rebates: Buying more than one piece from a manufacturer will trigger very considerable rebates. Price: Induc'on is dropping in price every year by about 3-­‐7%. It is now less expensive than regular upscale electric cooktops. Hybrid or combina'ons of electric and induc'on are usually marketed for less money in ranges. Yale Appliance + Lighting

Future of Induction
47 The Future of Induction
Thermador has started marke'ng their “Freedom” cooktop. The whole surface is an induc'on burner, so a pot can be placed anywhere on the top itself. At the same 'me, Whirlpool has entered the induc'on market and has delivered be?er features than ranges almost twice more expensive. So the price has dropped as induc'on technology has evolved.
