SUSTAINABILITY PROFILE: INDUCTION COOKING TECHNOLOGY
Induction Cooking is vastly more energy-efficient than conventional, electrical resistance cooking, using only 1/10th of the energy of conventional electric cooktops, and cooking twice as fast as gas. Induction cooking creates an electro-magentic field which stimulates the iron molecules in the cooking vessel to generate heat in the pan, while the cooktop surface itself remains cool to the touch. Turning the dial results in an instantaneous response of the temperature in the pot, saving time and energy over the comparatively slow response of conventional electric cooktops. Of the energy produced in the magnetic coil, 100% of it goes into the pan, with no energy lost to the surrounding space.
We also create bathrooms which offer spa-like amenities, such as over-sized shower-rooms with multiple shower-heads...
