Other pluses for hobs

Induction with instantaneous operation

Induction with instantaneous operation

Induction hob works twice as fast as a gas cooker; moreover, it is more economical and safer. It only heats the bottom of the pan while the remaining hob surface remains cool and safe to touch. Switching on and off, and temperature control, work instantly and the hob cools down very quickly. Since the temperature is immediately adjusted upon your command communicated by a simple touch, there is less danger of boiling over. Furthermore, some tasks such as melting chocolate, making sophisticated sauces and other temperature-sensitive masterworks are much simpler.

Cookware for an induction hob

Plus for most cookware you already have! Decision to buy an induction hob does not require replacing all your pots and pans as well. In fact, all cookware with a ferromagnetic bottom can be used. Simply use a magnet to check whether a pan is suitable for use on an induction hob: if the magnet sticks to the bottom, then induction will work.
Extremely easy to clean

Extremely easy to clean

Since the induction hob is only heated underneath the pan and temperature adjustments are effective immediately, the danger of boiling or spilling over is minimal. Hence, nothing gets burnt and stuck onto the hob! In case of accidents, simply wipe the surface. Fresh water will do.
PowerBoost: Turbo charged cooking

PowerBoost: Turbo charged cooking

Simply engage the PowerBoost function to increase the heat delivered by an already highly efficient hob even further.
Timer

Timer

Countdown timer can be set to up to 99 minutes. If you know the optimum cooking time for a particular dish from experience, set the timer and the hob will switch off automatically after the set period. A beep will signal that your food is ready.
Residual heat indicators

Residual heat indicators

As long as a cooking zone is still hot, this will be indicated by a light signal. When on, do not touch the zones. Residual heat can be used to keep food warm, or for slow melting – without using any additional energy.

Safety switch-off

High-performance HiLight heaters are fitted with a special mechanism to protect from unwanted prolonged operation. Unlike with other cooking zones, maximum duration of continuous operation and amount of radiation of these heaters is limited. Therefore, they are switched off automatically after a certain period of time. This improves safety and prolongs the heaters' useful life.

Overheat protection

A special multi-level safety system prevents overheating and thus protects electronic technology of the induction hob from damage. In case of extreme increase in a cooking zone's temperature, a two-level fan is automatically engaged. If this does not suffice, PowerBoost, if activated, is deactivated. If the temperature is still too high, power level of some cooking zones is decreased. In the ultimate case, the cooking zones are switched off. After cooling down, the hob is once again ready to operate at any, even maximum power level.
Pan size recognition

Pan size recognition

Induction hob automatically recognizes the pan placed over the cooking zone. When the zone is switched on, a symbol "U" is displayed. The cooking zone will start to operate as set – but only when you place the pan over it! This can be done within ten minutes after switching on the zone. If you use a pan smaller than the activated cooking zone, the hob will automatically adjust the output to the size of the pan, using only the amount of power required for that particular piece of cookware!
Easy control

Easy control

Perfectly sized icons on the glass ceramic hobs are placed exactly where you want them: at the center and to the right of the hob. Carefully thought out position of control icons further improves clarity and control over the functions and makes adjustments much easier.
Two or three and oval ring heating zones

Two or three and oval ring heating zones

Heaters with double or triple concentric area and special oval-shaped heaters allow perfect adjustments to cookware of various sizes. Now you can fry fish and meat in large pans on your cooking hobs! Simply activate the additional area to increase the cooking zone as desired!
ChildLock

ChildLock

Lock the entire hob, or lock your current settings. Children will be safe from uncontrolled operation and the cooking hob will be safe from their attempts to tamper with it.

Plus for elegant details! All Gorenje+ cooking hobs feature aluminium edges – in black! The edges protect the glass ceramic plate and the high-quality black aluminium matches the appearance of the innovatively designed cooking hobs.
Installation with no awkward edges

Installation with no awkward edges

Forget the edges between the cooking hob and the countertop and choose completely smooth worktop. Select hobs are designed to allow highly accurate installation flush with the surrounding surface. Special treatment of the edges of glass ceramic plates that provide the base for these hobs makes the transition seamless. Installation is simple, and the final effect is a sophisticated appearance of the entire cooking corner.
More burner power

More burner power

New extra powerful gas burners heat the pan much faster and thus reduce the amount of time required for cooking. Shorter cooking time paired with high heat is an asset in many dishes, particularly stir fries where the vegetables are just done and still crisp!

Automatic thermal protection

If the flame goes out during burner operation, a special protection device makes sure the supply of gas is immediately stopped. Since the inlet is closed, there is no danger of a gas leak.
Domino combinations

Smaller induction and gas glass ceramic hobs with two heaters each can be combined into a series of your choice. The available modules also include a glass ceramic hob with a special wok gas burner! Great for individual combinations!
Teppanyaki

Teppanyaki

Integrated stainless steel plate is inspired by the Japanese cuisine. The name of this hotplate which allows grilling in your kitchen is derived from Japanese words teppan (steel plate) and yaki (grilled). It is intended for grilling with minimum fat; thus, it makes a perfect choice for anyone looking to prepare a wholesome meal – particularly meat and vegetables. Smooth surface allows simple cleaning. Normally, it suffices to clean the cooled plate with a cloth after use. Owing to the uniform Alublack edges, the Teppanyaki plate lends itself perfectly to combination with all other Gorenje+ hobs.
