Adventys - producers of
induction cooking technology
Adventys, a leading French cooking equipment
brand, has been manufacturing induction cooking
technology for more than 15 years. Throughout
its existence, Adventys has been at the forefront
of induction innovation, partnering with other
manufacturers to meet the complex needs of the
culinary community.
Induction cooking technology effectively turns
the base of pots and pans into a heating element,
rather than directly heating them, leading to
enormous gains in safety, hygiene and energy
efficiency.
Adventys product range
All products produced by Adventys are
manufactured in France and exclusively
distributed in the UK by Grande Cuisine. The
range incorporates light to heavy-duty singlephase table top products, along with a range of
complementary inset induction hobs. Added
to this is a selection of heavy-duty three phase
free-standing and table-top appliances, plus three
phase kits for total flexibility.

Why Induction Technology?
Main Benefits of Induction
Technology
Using Induction
Induction cooking isn’t a new form of cooking;
it has been available for a number of years. It
is fast and works by using induction heating to
directly heat a cooking vessel, as opposed to
transferring heat from electrical elements or gas
burners to ingredients inside. Energy generated
by magnetic coils causes molecules in the pan to
move around at very high frequencies creating
friction which provides instant heat.
Pan
Vitro
Glass
Induction technology is a more energy-efficient
and cost-effective method of cooking than
traditional gas and electrical methods. With
energy prices continuing to soar, induction
technology has risen dramatically in popularity.
However, the benefits of induction go way
beyond simply being fast and energy efficient it is also safe and hygienic and puts the user in
greater control.
Costs Savings
90 per cent energy-efficient. No
waste of power or heat. (Gas =
approx 50 per cent energy efficiency).
Precision and Control
Instantaneous and flexible heat
reactions for complete control when
cooking.
Magnetic
Field
Coil
Generator
Electrical
Power
Pan Usage
Induction heating will work with pans and
ceramics that have a ferritic base, such as cast
iron, enamelled iron and specific induction
pans. Induction can also be used with cast iron
searing / griddle plates for grilling meats, fish and
vegetables.
For more detailed information on induction
technology please contact our office to speak
with an induction specialist.
Power and Performance
From 50 Watts to 24,000 Watts
- super fast boiling. Takes 4.46
minutes to boil a pan of water
compared to 8.18 minutes for gas.
Safety
As only the pan gets hot, the
temperature on the hob is minimal
and significantly reduces the risk of
burns. More safety options available.
Comfort
Only the pan gets hot which means
the kitchen doesn’t get overheated.
Ease of Maintenance
The temperature on the hob surface
is minimal, which means spillages
will not burn. Easy to clean surface
material.

Induction Technology
Detailed Guide
Fast Heat-up Time
Induction cooking is fast. A commercial induction
hob can boil a pan of water more quickly than an
electric kettle. It can also heat an empty induction
compatible pan up to 200oc in less than a minute significantly less than electricity or gas.
Precise Temperature Control
Using induction cooking allows for precise
temperature control. Changing the power levels
of the magnetic fields alters the temperature of
the pan. The change is instantaneous and precise.
This gives chefs complete control over what they
are cooking.
Cleaning an Induction Cooker
The tops of induction cookers are easy to clean;
they have a continuous surface with no dirt traps.
The controls are touch-sensitive, so there are
no knobs to clean around. Because the surface
doesn’t get as hot as other electric cookers most
spillages won’t bake on, although you still have
to be careful with sugar because it can pit the
surface.
Front of House Use
Induction hobs make ideal front of house cooking
equipment due to being fast and safe and with
little heat wastage.
Pots and Pans to use
To be used on an induction cooker pots and
pans must be made of steel, cast iron or other
combinations of ferrous metals that will react with
a magnetic field. If a magnet sticks to the bottom
of a pan then the pan will work on an induction
hob. Popular choices include stainless steel
multi-ply (grade that is magnetic), cast aluminium
with ferrous base, mild steel (black iron) and cast
iron. Cookware must have a flat bottom since the
magnetic field drops rapidly with distance from
surface.
Frying
For frying on an induction hob, a pan with a base
that is a good heat conductor is needed to spread
the heat quickly and evenly. The sole of the pan
will either need to be a steel plate pressed onto
the aluminium or a layer of stainless steel over
the aluminium. Copper and aluminium can’t be
used on an induction hob as current flows in a
thick layer in the metal and so encounters less
resistance and produces less heat.
Energy Use with Induction Cooking
As energy is supplied directly to the ingredients
with induction cooking, via the cooking vessel,
almost the entire energy source gets transferred
into that vessel. With gas or conventional
electrical cookers (including halogen), the energy
is first converted to heat which is then directed to
the cooking vessel - with a lot of that heat going
to waste heating up your kitchen. Induction
cooking uses 90 per cent of the energy produced
compared to only 55 per cent for a gas burner
and 65 per cent for traditional electric ranges.
Induction provides extremely fast boil and re-boil,
over 50 per cent faster than gas or electricity.
The surface of the cooker doesn’t heat up, so
overflows and spills don’t stick to it. The cooking
surface stays cool even during cooking. Even if
you leave the element switched on, it will only
consume approximately 38 watts of power.
A Safer Technology
Because the induction cooker only heats up the
pan or cooking vessel itself and not the surface
area it is resting on, the possibility of burn injury
is significantly reduced. There are no flames or
red hot electrical heating elements as found with
traditional cooking equipment.
