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.

IQcook: Plus for innovation and revolutionary technology of the first hob featuring fully automatic steam cooking

IQcook is the world's first cooking hob that uses the cutting edge intelligent sensor technology for automatic 100% efficiency. It is the first hob that can cook by itself, without any control: in steam, always at the right temperature, with the right power, without any loss of valuable nutrients. You can truly trust it to perceive all changes in a timely manner and adjust the operation to avoid boiling over, burning, or overcooking. IQcook is the revolution for the perfection in cooking, frying, and grilling. Proven. Patented!

IQcook: Plus for control over induction hob SensorControl, safety, retained nutrients and energy savings

The IQcook cooking hob automatically controls the operation of the cooking zones, making direct supervision unnecessary. Reliable and efficient IQ sensors installed in the cooking zone communicate with the sensor in the cookware lid, which monitors the cooking progress inside the pan. The result is automatic adjustment of the temperature and the power of the cooking hob to deliver optimum cooking results. Boiling over or burning is not possible since the patented SmartSense smart function will employ the communication of the IQ sensors in the lid and the cooking zone to identify when the liquid is boiling or when it has evaporated, and automatically adjust the hob operation, or switch it off. The reliable automatic control system guarantees complete safety without calling for your immediate attention. Setting the use of time and energy to the optimum, the IQcook hob will save up to 40% of power! The revolutionary IQcook hob allows you to choose between five preset cooking, frying, and grilling modes. Three preset modes are designed to be used with the lid on the pan and two are used when cooking without a lid.

FlexZone

Gorenje+ induction hobs offer the luxury of connectible coking zones. Combined into larger heating areas, they allow the hob to adjust to the cookware of unconventional shapes or sizes. A combined, extended heating area lets you optimize the use of cooktop space, making full use of induction even when cooking in oval dishes. PowerBoost function is there to supply the extra power when needed. Choose a hob with four or two FlexZone heaters. Four special heaters can be merged into two large cooking zones, while two heaters with this amazing feature will blend into one extended zone. With plus features!
SliderTouch: Excellent control of power and cooking time
Special innovative sliding zone allows perfect control over the power level for each cooking zone. In addition, timer can be set for each zone as well. SliderTouch is also intended for simple control of special functions such as preventing BoilControl, StayWarm and SoftMelt.  
PowerBoost: Turbo charged cooking
Simply engage the PowerBoost function to increase the heat delivered by an already highly efficient hob even further.  
XtremePower: Extra power when needed
XtremePower is the new generation of induction hobs whose Powerboost function, new high-performance induction coils, and double power of cooling fans provide even more of the excellent properties of induction. Smart electronic switches are used to distribute power between built-in inductors, allowing you to use all cooking zones simultaneously at the highest setting. Very safe. Very efficient!  
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.  
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.  
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

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
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.  
SmartControl: Simple control for each cooking zone
Since every cooking zone is fitted with its own module including a dedicated program timer and touch control device, cooking time can be set for each zone separately. After the set amount of time expires, cooking zone will be automatically switched off, which will be signalled by a beep. Cooking progress can be accurately set with nine power levels. All functions are displayed by intelligible symbols. This affords perfect control over your cooking – without any fuss!  
SoftMelt & StayWarm
With the SoftMelt function engaged, the cooking zone will maintain a constant temperature of 42 °C. Even heating is an excellent function allowing you to simply and safely melt honey, butter, or chocolate – without danger of burning! This function is also ideal for thawing frozen food. StayWarm function makes it easy to keep your food at the ideal temperature for serving, i.e. 70 °C. At this temperature, the food will stay warm while retaining its flavour and aroma.  
BoilControl: automatic power reduction to desired temperature
After being switched on, the hob automatically supplies the power required to rapidly reach the desired level. When reached, the power is reduced to a level just sufficient to maintain the required temperature. The intelligent function that can be switched on or off at any time, prevents liquids from boiling over, or prolonged boiling when not desired.  
ExtraSpace: Smartly laid out cooking zones
When cooking on XtremePower induction hobs, space next to your pans will never be scarce. Even when using all cooking zones, there will be ample area available around them. This is a result of carefully thought out layout of cooking zones on hobs of all widths – 66, 77, and 90 cm  
Extra large 26-centimeter heater
Induction hob features a special heater with a diameter of 26 centimetres to add new dimensions to your cooking. It allows highly efficient use of special-purpose cookware such as paella pans, large steam or pressure cookers, or simply XL pots for preparing large quantities of food – for stock or when hosting a big group.  
RestZone: the largest temporary storage area on a cooking hob!
Innovatively laid out cooking zones leave enough space between them to allow moving and temporarily parking additional cookware - on the very hob. Such convenient solution is particularly handy in small kitchens where worktop space is always scarce; moreover, it allows the chefs to focus fully on their job!  
StopGo: Pause as necessary
A single touch is enough to instantly stop the operation of all cooking zones. If situation calls for a sudden pause to your cooking, everything will remain under control even without your presence. When you get back, touch the same key again to resume operation, with all settings intact!  
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.  
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!  
More innovative shapes
Gorenje+ range includes different hobs with smartly laid out four or five cooking zones. Gorenje+ offers a range of induction hobs, HiLight heater hobs, gas hobs, and the special Teppanyaki hob. The hobs are available in different widths, fitted with various types of controls, such as ergonomically designed knobs, touch control, or the most innovative solution IQcook. Choose your own!  
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.  
Super silent operation
Intelligent switching between induction coils and highest grade system components impart an important advantage to the new generation of induction hobs, relative to this type of hobs known to date. Even when all cooking zones are used simultaneously at the highest power level, the characteristic induction noise will hardly be heard.  
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

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.
