Paris: Induction

January 4th, 2009

The kitchen in our apartment in Paris was equipped with some pretty cool features, which according to the guy we were renting from are pretty standard. That includes this induction range, above, which brings liquids to a boil faster than anything I’ve ever seen. It took some getting used to and I almost ruined a roast while browning it, but it was very cool to cook with.
I don’t know the science of the thing, but the whiz-bang factor comes from the fact that the range stays completely cool. You can have hot pan on it one second and put your hand in the middle of the cooking circle the next and not feel the slightest warmth. Also, the smooth surface also makes it significantly easier to clean than the stovetop I have at home.
