Induction or radiant cooktops are the main use of glass ceramic in the household appliance sector.
In an induction cooktops, heating takes place by an electromagnetic field which heats the material through the bottom of the pot. Thanks to the rapidity of the heating process it is therefore possible to obtain a very high cooking efficiency.
In a radiant cooktops, on the other hand, the pot is heated by electrical resistances positioned below the glass: the pot heats up through the passage of infrared rays and thanks to the conductive action between glass and pot.
For both cooking technologies, ILVA Glass glass ceramic offers absolute reliability in terms of thermal resistance to working temperatures (up to 700 ° C), to thermal shock, to mechanical stress due to accidental impacts of pots or dishes.
ELECTA® glass ceramic allows maximum ease of cleaning, being made up of a uniform surface, free of obstacles and the smoothest on the market.
Its chemical composition makes it particularly hard in order to avoid scratches during use (for example, by friction of the pots on the surface), while its high resistance to chemicals allows the use of normal detergents.
The identification of the cooking zones and controls is achieved through one or more graphics with various colors. The graphics are permanent over time and resistant to stains, being made with enamels whose duration is guaranteed and not subject to wear due to abrasion or chemical agents, typical of the kitchen.
