How Does a Ceramic Hob Work?

Answer

A ceramic hob has three sources of energy namely gas, electricity and induction. Ceramic hobs conceal the heating element and the heating element is encased in the unit. There is no exposed flame, heat source or burners. The flat ceramic surface heats faster and is more efficient.

In ceramic hobs, the heat is conducted through the glass into the pan only. The heating elements are laid beneath the surface and may have sensors which will lower or cut off the heat automatically. All have residual heat lights so as to see when it is cool enough to touch.
Ceramic Hobs Work by heating up and producing a bright red light which immediately begins to pump out a mixture of infrared radiation and visible red light instantly warming the ceramic top. The ceramic orb is able to withstand abrupt high temperatures and the load of heavy cooking pots without cracking.
A ceramic hob is a flat ceramic cooking surface that has heating elements fitted on the underside. It is usually patterned to show the areas where heat is produced. There are two types of ceramic hobs; radiant hobs with glass ceramic panels and the more powerful halogen hobs, which use infrared lighting.
