SCHOTT CERAN® and radiant heat: traditional burners are out.
Above all, a radiant kitchen range with a SCHOTT CERAN® cooktop saves energy while cooking, as well as, cleaning the range. The red-glowing cooking zones are typical of this technology, radiating heat and thus warming the vessel on the cooktop.
SCHOTT CERAN® and induction: a perfect combination.
With induction, a current-carrying coil located beneath the cooktop generates an alternating magnetic field. The result is that, when turned on, the cooking zone stays cool. When a pot made of ferromagnetic material is placed on the cooktop heat is generated where it is needed – directly at the bottom of the cookware. The cooking surface itself remains relatively cool; however, temperatures up to 500°C (932 °F) can be reached. You can enjoy all of these advantages with SCHOTT CERAN® – and you also have a cooking surface that is elegant and easy to clean.
- Electricity heats a coil beneath the glass-ceramic surface.
- The red-glowing coil heats the glass-ceramic in the cooking zone.
- The heat is dispersed homogeneously. The vessel on the cooking zone is warmed by the heat conducted by the glass-ceramic and radiating from the coil. The unheated surface remains relatively cool.
- The SCHOTT CERAN® glass-ceramic cooktop continues to emit heat after it is turned off, which can be used to cook or warm the pot. The residual heat display indicates which zones are hot.
