What would you call a faster, safer, more efficient, more economical and more environmentally friendly way of cooking? We'd call it the future, and it's available to you today with a Euro-Chef Induction Cooktop. Since induction transfers heat directly into a cooking vessel, the surface of the Euro-Chef Induction Cooktop doesn't get hot. You can crank up the cooktop, put your hand on the surface... and walk away unscathed. It generates heat directly inside a heating vessel, instantaneously, practically speaking, that means you can boil water in seconds! It's estimated that only 40% of the energy used to power a gas cooktop goes toward cooking the food. For the Euro-Chef Induction Cooktop, however, that number more than doubles to an impressive 84%.
