Did you know the Cabinets & Designs showroom features working appliances? Our main Wood-Mode kitchen features a working Wolf induction cooktop. Induction cooking is quickly gaining popularity due to its speed, power, and precision. Let’s take a closer look.
What’s the difference between a regular and an ‘induction’ cooktop?
An induction cooktop uses an electromagnetic field to cook, rather than a thermal transfer of heat from a gas flame or electric heating element in a ‘normal’ stovetop. Induction cooking loses less heat, and cooks faster; one chef described induction cooking to the New York Times, comparing to trading in a VW Beetle for a Ferrari!
Wolf’s first-ever induction range debuted at the 2016 Architectural Digest Design Show in New York City. Wolf’s sleek, efficient induction range uses pan-sensing technology and wastes virtually no heat. What does “pan-sensing technology” mean? The heating element only gets hot if it is in contact with a pan, and heating stops automatically when a pan is removed. Induction cooktops stay cooler than their radiant and thermal counterparts, too.
The Sub-Zero Freezer Company was launched in 1945 by Westye Bakke after he began experimenting and developing refrigeration methods to store his son’s insulin better. In 2000, Sub-Zero formed Wolf Appliance to create the ultimate cooking appliances for passionate home cooks. Today, Bakke’s grandson Jim serves as president of Sub-Zero/Wolf, and the company continues to specialize in crafting premium-grade appliances for the serious home cook.
