Why Choose Induction?
There are four main benefits of Induction over traditional gas and electric cooking:
- It saves energy
- It saves money
- It saves time
- It is cleaner
How Does it Work?
High frequency alternating current flows through a copper coil below a glass-ceramic plate. When a pan with an iron base is placed upon the cooking zone, a magnetic field is created to heat the pan base. The heat then transfers directly to the pan contents to provide fast, efficient cooking.
Why choose Falcon induction?
Our Induction appliances have been designed for commercial kitchens as direct alternatives to gas and electric equivalents. This means that they are hard-wearing and long lasting. Falcon induction models have a lifespan of 30,000 hours – that’s equivalent to 10 hours per day for 8 years. Many induction models on the market are based more around a typical domestic specification so are nowhere near as robust or as long lasting.
Our Induction is Fast
The table below shows how quickly our different models take to boil 1 litre of room temperature (20°C) water.
Notice how the different pot widths impact upon the boiling times. This is due to each induction appliance having an optimum pot size - i.e. the base of the pot is the same size as the coil underneath.
Our Induction is Cool
The graph demonstrates how little heat is emitted from a Falcon induction top in comparison to other model types. This contributes to a much more pleasant working environment.
Our Induction is Great for Chefs
There are so many benefits to chefs when using induction. These include:
- Fast – heat is directed straight into pan providing faster heat up times
- Control – instantaneous heat at your fingertips. Can move from simmer to rolling boil almost instantly.
- Safe – low cooking surface temperature and no naked flames reduce risk of burns.
- Versatile – provides the same flexibility as a solid top as multiple pots can share heat zones.
- Easy to Clean – hob simply wipes clean regardless of type of spillages meaning no scrubbing required at the end of service.
