Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop

Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop Fagor, a Spanish company known for high quality kitchen products has introduced a new product available in the US market that offers energy efficient top quality cooking.

Fagor's Portable Induction Cooktop offers consumers a fantastic single burner induction cook unit perfect for the home or apartment. 

The unit is ideal for apartment dwellers who have limited space and/or older inefficient stoves which they can't change.

The Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop brings the power and efficiency of induction cooking into the home.  The unit is completely portable easy to take outside when grilling or use on the countertop inside. 

We've had the opportunity to test out this new unit from Fagor and we love it!

The induction cooktop is perfect for sauteing.  It heats up a steel or cast iron pan quickly and provides a consistent perfectly balanced heat. 

It has six different heat settings spanning from 190 - 430 degrees. Unlike electric ranges which is what several of our writers have in their apartments, the Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop heats quickly and evenly and reaches the desired heat level quickly. 

This is where the Fagor shines in terms of energy efficiency.  Heat is transferred to the pan quickly and the result is a pan ready for use in much less time than on an electric range.  Also the unit allows for precise control over temperatures which is often difficult on a gas stove.

We used the Fagor for sauteing, making breakfast, and boiling pasta water among other common cooking tasks. Each time we used the unit we were pleased with how easy it was to use and how nice it was to have fast even heat.

Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop with Cast Iron pan Induction cooktops work with steel and cast iron cookware including enameled.  The cooking occurs using an series of induction coils inside the unit these coils generate magnetic fields that induct a warming reaction in steel and iron-based pots and pans.

Fagor says their cooktop is efficient because 90% of the heat generated is transferred to and used by the pan.  They say the unit is also about 50% faster than cooking on gas or electric. The unit is easy to clean and has a number of features making it incredibly safe. 

If you are frustrated with your current electric or gas stove or are just looking for the flexibility of an extra burner to use outside or on the countertop the Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop is definitely worth a look.

I Love Cooktops

You mentioned one of my favorite things about owning an induction cook top is the fact that it provides a "consistent perfectly balanced heat." As minor as that may seem, it has made a world of difference. You can taste the difference in my meals cooked with an induction cooktop, and those that weren't.
