ELECTA® glass ceramic for induction - radiant cooktops

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.

The advanced graphic customization of ELECTA® cooktops is allowed by the technology that ILVA Glass has developed to create surface effects that imitate materials such as:

  • brushed steel effect
  • stone effect
  • matt effect
  • wood effect

The glazes used have been specially designed to ensure the best cleaning of the top in consideration of the large print surface compared to the common graphic print of the fires and the reduction of fingerprints when using the controls.

In this way it is possible to obtain products with extremely personalized aesthetic effects, compared to the standard tops on the market.

The controls of the cooktops are touch controls, capacitive, and the interaction with the user is ensured by LEDs of various colors, which indicate the on/off status, the power of the burners, the suction speed of the hood, the cooking timer , etc .. To fulfill the function, ILVA Glass ELECTA® glass ceramic has chemical, physical and electrical characteristics specially optimized for the transmission of infrared and light for excellent visibility and definition of symbols and numbers.
