Fagor Induction Pro Cooktop: Fast And Efficient

On some of our other sites, every day it may seem like technology is advancing. We discuss gadgets aplenty, with wireless functionality, fancy batteries, and new materials. But home appliances haven’t been left behind, as even products like coffee makers and Crock Pots are being connected to the Internet of Things, and there are plenty of interesting and exciting things cooking in the kitchen.

The Fagor Induction Pro Cooktop is a sexy sort of burner, which might seem a contradiction if you’re still stuck with gas burners. Not only is induction more eco-friendly (90% of the energy is utilized compared to 50% used by other cooking methods), it’s also safer, since you can’t burn yourself on the flames or leave gas leaking and you’ don’t have to worry about smoke. Plus, they’re easier to clean up, since you can just wipe essentially a glass surface, and they cook faster than most other methods.

We’ve seen other induction cooktops before, including the previous version from Fagor. They’ve once again improved on their own models, once again offering a full 1800 watts. Non-slip legs keep it solidly in place, and the temperature range has been extended a bit, now reaching from 140°F – 465°F. There are eight quick launch buttons for various functions- warm, simmer, boil, rapid boil, saute, brown, sear, stir-fry- and they’ve built in a timer of up to three hours. The layout of the controls has improved too. For those new to the method, it can take a bit of practice if you’re used to old-fashioned cooking since the pan heats up fast and temperatures are quite consistent.

As we’ve mentioned be­fore, cop­per and alu­minum cookware won’t work with induction, but most others pots and pans will- any­thing that a mag­net would stick to. As long as you’ve got the right materials, once you start using induction it can be hard to go back. And the fagor induction pro is an ideal- and remarkably inexpensive- way to add it to your kitchen. Available now, online and in stores, for $150.
