Faster and more energy-efficient than traditional hobs, induction cooker hobs are ideal in an eco-conscious world. Air Uno offers to the UK market a variety of sizes from the Italian maker Foster. The main benefit is that in induction cooking the energy is transferred to the pot and the food within whilst on a normal ceramic glass hob some of the energy is wasted heating the cooktop and the air around it. The other advantage is safety. The cooking surface has no open flames and is a great thermal insulator, so that it stays cool enough to touch without injury.
