Traditionally we cook by generating heat from one source, such as a flame, and conducting it to another. The Fisher & Paykel Induction Cooktops work on a different principle. The cooktop itself produces an electromagnetic field which induces the pot or pan to generate its own heat. The results are shorter heat-up times, greater precision and a safer cooking surface.

Go from a boil to a simmer in seconds. Fisher & Paykel Touch&Slide controls react immediately when you adjust the temperature so you don’t waste time in the kitchen.
Induction cooktops only start heating your pot or pan once you’ve placed it on the ceramic surface and stop as soon as you remove it – so you don’t have to worry about curious little fingers or leaving an element on.
The surface around your cookware stays cool when you cook, preventing baked-on spills and making cleaning up a breeze. The durable ceramic cooktop surface just needs a quick wipe after use to maintain its good looks.
PowerBoost and GentleHeat deliver either very high or very low heat fast for specialised cooking tasks such as searing meat and melting chocolate. An integrated timer keeps you on track.
No heat is wasted during induction cooking because only the cookware is heated, not the cooktop surface. This makes induction cooktops more energy-efficient than electric or gas cooktops.
