Dometic Introduces New Induction Cooktop

Fri Dec 30, 2016

148337194720923.jpgInduction is the first technology that offers all the benefits of cooking with gas. Prioritizing the consumer’s desires and needs, Dometic has introduced the new Induction Cooktop.

The benefits of Dometic’s Induction Cooktop include energy being directly transferred within the pan metal, designed to heat faster than any other gas cooktop.

There is no open flame or other radiant heat source to ignite fumes or flammable materials. It also contains a child lock.

Wiping it down after use is designed to be easier with this flat, easy-to-clean surface. Almost no ambient heat is produced since the heat is being generated in the pan itself. RVers will be more comfortable while cooking and during meals.

It also has an elegant appearance. With an ultra-slim surface, it stands less than 3/16-inch above the countertop.

“When it comes to our customers, Dometic never stops listening and innovating," Senior Vice President of RV OEM Sales Dave Schutz says. "This year, we are excited to debut our new Induction Cooktop. This all electric cooktop is a great addition to our extensive line of RV gas cooking appliances. Induction cooking provides faster heating, improved efficiency and more consistency with precise control similar to gas. Another product by Dometic designed to make mobile living easy for those that enjoy the mobile lifestyle.”

Dometic introduced the new induction cooktop at the the RVIA National Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky.
