Induction cooktop takes the heat out of the kitchen
A cooktop can expand to the entire countertop with a new induction surface.
At the 2016 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, Joseph Arlin with Viking Range, demonstrated the Viking Incogneeto Induction Warmer.
Arlin said the Viking Incogneeto Induction Warmer is mounted underneath a stone or engineered stone countertop and allows the countertop or stone topped furniture piece to be transformed into a warmer for entertaining. Once mounted, simply place the trivet on the countertop, along with the induction compatible cookware for an instant warming station.
The real key to the system is the patent pending Magneeto 2. This trivet-like device is used on the upper surface of the countertop to locate the heat zone and is capable of holding food accurately to within +/-2°F (+/-1.2°C).
When induction compatible cookware or bakeware is placed on top of the trivit, and a temperature selected on the control panel the Magneeto 2 acts as a temperature sensor and wireless communicator. Temperature information is relayed to the unit below the stone top, in order to first attain and then maintain a desired temperature. The Magneeto 2 acts as a trivet – protecting the top surface of the stone from direct contact with a hot dish. This trivet can then be hidden away under the counter or in a drawer when not in use.
The unit offers four selectable temperature settings: 150°F / 160°F / 175°F and 190°F (65°C / 70°C / 80°C and 85°C). Any cookware/bakeware up to a diameter of approximately 12″ (30.5 cm), with an induction compatible base, can be used on top of the warmer. Use beautiful enamel cast ironware or traditional chafers to create the right look and ambience for the buffet dining experience. The patent pending Incogneeto System is the only sure way to heat through stone safely without damaging the material itself in any way.
