Home cooks are always looking for new ways to be more efficient in the kitchen, and delivering convenience continues to rise – pre-cut vegetables in supermarkets, meal plans sent directly to you home. When it comes to cooking, the fastest way to achieve chef level results at home is with induction. This preferred cooking method in Europe has been gaining popularity in the US, thanks to its efficiency, speed, control, keen safety features and minimalistic design. Plus, easy to clean and 80% more efficient than gas.
The latest addition to the BlueStar® line of electric cooking products is the new Touch Induction Cooktop. This sleek, modern design perfectly integrates into the countertop to blend seamlessly with any kitchen. The cooktop combines efficient performance of induction with the precise control and powerful performance that is the hallmark of the BlueStar® brand. It heats up to 50% faster than gas plus has a seamless two-burner bridging technology, perfect for grilling or searing with the corresponding cast iron dual zone griddle. The five burners feature three levels of heating power: standard, power boost or double power boost. The home chef has the ability to kick start the cooking process on all cooking zones, boosting the power immediately for no-wait cooking and optimal flexibility. The industry-leading 5,500 watt burner can bring one gallon of water in a large pot to a rolling boil in only three and half minutes. This increased, instantaneous temperature response means lightning-fast high heat.
The Smart Power Management automatically calculates and disperses the maximum amount of power across the number of burners in use. The sensitive touch power selection provides intuitive temperature control with 12 cooking settings. All burners can deliver a gentle 200 degree simmer or maintain a perfect keep warm temperature with three heat level options. Each burner also features individual cook timers so that recipes are easily followed.
Plus the induction cooktop comes with robust safety features making it ideal for families including a safety lock, pan detection technology and no-touch hot surface indicator light. The black ceramic glass surface resists scratching, staining, and this display has crisp natural white indicator lighting.
For a complete pro-style electric kitchen, the induction cooktop can be paired with BlueStar® electric wall ovens, as well as built-in refrigeration and a broad selection of professional-style ventilation.
