The induction method uses electromagnet power to only heat up those areas of the hob directly in contact with the pan (your pans will need to have iron in the base). Temperature is adjusted instantly, making these hobs a more efficient and easier-to-control choice. Take a look at this pick of stylish and functional induction hobs that are sure to bring your kitchen up to date.
