Making the switch may depend on whether the restaurant owner is ready to change your commercial kitchen and considering your chefs' thoughts. Usually, there are no visual clues of where the burner is, such as physical hot surfaces, red coils, or physical flame, making chefs confused and wary of trying.
Once chefs and restaurant owners better understand what induction cooking is and the benefits they can bring to the kitchen, they are more likely to try this innovative technology.
Start learning the advantages of commercial induction ranges:
Much safer: In addition to the cool touch of the glass surface, commercial induction cookers provide additional safety features, including fully enclosed assembly protection, precision circuit protection, intelligent program protection, safe power supply protection, spin-type fan heat dissipation, overvoltage, overcurrent, and overheat protection, waterproof grade protection.
Efficient cooking: The energy efficiency of the induction cooktop is as high as 90-95%, so the cooking food is twice the speed of traditional cooking.
Energy-saving: Compared with gas or electric stoves, commercial induction burners radiate less heat into the kitchen air, which reduces the need to use exhaust fans or air conditioning energy.
Easy-to-clean: The glass-ceramic surface and the all-stainless steel panel design combined with induction technology make cleaning easy.
From a professional point of view, Judging the quality of the induction cooker mainly comes from the following factors:
(1) Actual power and rated power difference
The induction cooker label indicates the rated power, which is the maximum power for the equipment's regular operation. Its primary role is to calculate the electrical load. The real power is the wattage used to drive the load on the motor.
The induction cooker's actual capacity is less than its rated power, not an industry secret. The chip program will make the power reduced to prevent internal core components from damaging due to too high temperatures. The higher the induction component's quality, the better the heat dissipation channel, and the smaller the difference value between the actual power and the rated power.
(2) Induction core component module
High-quality components provide excellent performance guarantees. Commercial induction cooking equipment that uses German "Infineon" IGBT for induction cooking systems has much stronger stability and reliability.
(3) Induction coil
The difference in induction coils' performance depends mainly on the following key elements: the coil materials, the coil diameter, the coil turns, and the magnetic strips. Here are details what you do not know:
-Pure copper coils have more substantial thermal efficiency than other materials (aluminum or copper-clad aluminum), but at a higher cost of purchase;
-The bigger the coil diameter, the larger the heating zone;
- The more quantity of coil turns and magnetic strips, the better performance the inductance;
-The thicker the wire, the greater the current-carrying capacity.
At the Lestov factory, all commercial induction hobs are made of full pure copper coil, which has over 95% thermal efficiency, can withstand high temperature about 300 degrees, and has overheating protection function, significantly improving the durability and safety of induction cooking.
(4) Glass-ceramics top
If you are looking for commercial-grade induction hob plates, buy high strength glass-ceramics. Lestov factory uses 5A+ grade or Germany "SCHOTT" glass-ceramics. An exciting result comes from our experiment: when we put the 700 degrees glass-ceramics into 0-degree water, the glass is still intact.
(5) Body material of commercial induction cookers
You can understand by looking at the appearance of the product. A high-quality induction cooker is made of all stainless steel, and the higher the thickness, the higher the weight and the higher durability.
(6) Product surface treatment
The surface of the product is very important for understanding the manufacturer's process capability and product quality.
(7) Safety control program
These protection programs include precision circuit protection, fully enclosed assembly protection, safe power supply protection, cooling fan protection, overvoltage, overcurrent and overheat protection, ultra-high temperature protection, ultra-low temperature protection, anti-dry burning protection, and water shortage Alarm protection, etc.
(8) The intelligent temperature control system
Via intelligent control to the time and temperature, it can ensure the safety of the cooking equipment and the taste of the food. Even though It is not a standard configuration of each commercial induction cooker, you can custom these functions from a professional manufacturer.
