BergHOFF Touch Screen Induction Cook Top is well-designed to cater for cooking needs of all types of clients. The cooktop has 3 versions: Single, Double burner and XL. The Single unit has one burner and smaller than the double version which is capable of heating two pans at the same time. The XL induction is ideal for students, on a holiday or terrace while camping.

BergHOFF Touch Screen Induction Cook Top is a fantastic time saver. Since heat is generated through induction instead of the conventional cooking of which heat is transferred from burning gas or electrical coil, the cooktop works very efficiently. You will be eating pasta already through induction cooking while the water is only warmed if you use conventional heating souce.

Shorter cooking time means smaller bill for electricity. Besides, the least external heat is produced through induction so that your kitchen does need as much AC cooling as flame cooking.

The portable cooktop provides a precise control of the temperature. It has dual functions of cooks and warms, with timer settings up to 150 minutes. The LCD screen on the shatter resistant tempered glass surface helps you to keep the temperature as you expect. Only you need to do is to adjust the settings to produce steady and precise heat.

Safety is another feature of the induction item. The cooktop itself is not heated during cooking and keeps cool at a low temperature and it does not has open fire like propane stove, so the hazard of being burnt or firing home by the cooktop is low. Besides, when the pan is lift during cooking, the induction oven will stop and will restart working a few seconds later when the cookware is put on the cooker again.

Normally, there are few negative comments on the product. Compatible cookware of metal magnetic properties is needed for induction cooking. Those made of glass, ceramic or aluminum will not work on the cooktop.
