Features to look for
But the purchase of the induction cookware is based on the quality and presence of certain features which help to increase its utility. Hence the following features need to be taken into account before making the final choice.
Size: The size of the induction cooktop varies from about 30cm to about 90cm with 60cm being the optimum size most commonly purchased by people in India. The best way to determine the size of the cooktop to be purchased is to measure the length and breadth of the space wherein it is to be placed in the kitchen.
Cooking zones: It has been generally seen that an induction stove of a width of 60cm provides the user with about 4 cooking zones while the ones of a lesser width provide lesser number of the same. Of course as one goes for a bigger sized induction cooktop, the cooking zones also increase. Since the presence of more cooking zones enables the user to prepare larger quantities of food, it is always better to have a wider cooktop. Thus a 60cm cooktop provides enough space for cooking the basic meals.
Touch controls: The presence of touch controls instead of control knobs makes it easier to access the feature controls of the induction cooktop. They are also easy to clean and blend in seamlessly with the kitchen bench top.
Safety features: These features are of extreme importance and care should be taken to check the presence of the:
- Child lock which prevents kids present in the house from meddling with the controls,
- Timer enables the device to automatically shut down at the programmed time,
- Safety shut-off is an automatic feature which enables the cooktop to shut down in instances of food boiling over, a dry pan sitting on the cooking top or even if there is no pan sitting on it.
Boost: This is an additional feature present in some models wherein it is possible to provide the food being cooked or water being heated etc., with an extra power boost thereby enabling it to cook at an even faster rate.
Power management: This enables proper distribution of power between the cooking zones when they are all in operation.
Keep warm: This is a feature which enables the user to keep food warm by simmering it till the time it is being consumed. This is a great feature for keeping soups, curries etc., warm especially during winter.
