The hob will turn off when the pan is removed and reduces the risk of scalding.
With conventional gas or electrical cookers, the gas can be accidentally left on, and hobs that appear visually cool may in fact be extremely hot. Induction hobs include smart technology that automatically switches them off when pans are removed, reducing the risk of burns or fires.
As the heat is generated by an electromagnetic field, the risk of burns is more limited, helping to enable people to maintain their independence with preparing meals while staying safe.
Note that induction hobs do not work with all pans, only ferrous metal pans, which contain iron.
