PIONEERS OF INNOVATION

De Dietrich was the first appliance manufacturer to introduce induction technology and continues to lead the market, offering a collection that is always ahead of its time.

Originally used for heating industrial metals at very high temperatures, De Dietrich realised the potential for the domestic market as induction is capable of providing instant power together with perfectly uniform heat distribution at the slightest touch.

 

INDUCTION TECHNOLOGY

Using clever magnetic technology beneath a ceramic glass surface, an inductor creates a magnetic field when a pan with suitable iron content in it’s base is placed on the cooking zone. This magnetic reaction instantaneously starts the production of heat directly within the ferrous pan and not within the actual hob zone itself. As it is the base of the pan where heat is created, surrounding areas of the hob remain cool to touch. When the pan is lifted from the hob surface the only heat on the glass is heat that which has been transferred back from the pan.

 

SUPREME SPEED

For speed, induction out-performs all other hob types, being twice as fast as gas its nearest rival. This is because the energy from the inductor creates heat directly in the base of the pan meaning food cooks more quickly, as opposed to other hob types, where the heat has to be transferred to the pan before the cooking even can start.

 

EXTREME ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Induction hobs provide great savings for the environment as they are unsurpassed for efficiency, boasting an impressive 90% efficiency as opposed to 60% efficiency for ceramic or just 50% for gas hobs.

The reason why induction performs so outstandingly is because it is the pan which heats up and not the hob zone. There is virtually no heat loss due to the heat being contained to the exact pan size. For example a small pan will only draw energy in relation to the pan size regardless of what size cooking zone it is placed upon.

 

CLEANABILITY

With no heating elements in the hob itself and the heat being generated in the pan, cooking residue is prevented from burning onto the hob as surrounding areas remain cool. Any spills and splatters can be cleaned off immediately by simply wiping clean with a damp sponge or cloth for a good as new finish.

 

PRECISION AND RESPONSIVE COOKING

Induction technology provides unrivalled precision cooking. With incredibly flexible temperature control, induction is the most adaptable hob type available. With easy to use touch controls, the responsiveness of induction is so acute, heat can be effortlessly altered between a simmer, seal or boil with a single touch. Chocolate can even be melted directly into a pan using the lower power levels without the need for a bain marie. Most models also feature “Boost” power for rapid boiling.

 

ZONELESS COOKING WITH HORIZONE

De Dietrich was the first brand to bring zoneless cooking to market in 2007.

Cooking Freedom: zoneless induction hobs feature multiple inductors beneath the ceramic glass surface allowing a freedom of movement as the pans can be moved anywhere on the hob and the cooking area can adapt to all sizes of cookware and individual cooking demands. De Dietrich ‘Zoneless’ hobs incorporate a unique Power Tracker to ensure that the pan’s temperature remains constant wherever it is re-sited.

 

SAFETY FEATURES

Induction technology is literally safe to the touch! With features such as an auto-safety off switch and child lock they provide peace of mind.

 

POWER SHARING FEATURE

The control system of all De Dietrich induction hobs ensures that only one zone on each side of the hob will run on maximum power, the power input to the other zone is limited to a lower level. This means that the supply cables and other safety devices do not have to handle unusually large currents. This power sharing feature allows the maximum possible mains power to be delivered to a single zone while allowing the shared zone to continue working.

 

INNOVATIVE HOB SETTINGS & FEATURES

Elapsed Time: at a simple touch this function calculates the total time the cookware has been heating.

Power Tracker: feature allowing cookware to be moved without heat loss. The induction technology enables heat to transfer and track the power level automatically.

Memo: stores up to 3 settings to ensure that favourite dishes are cooked to perfection time and again.

Direct Access: save time by programming most frequently used power settings.
