Cooler surface, safer kitchen

Our intelligent induction technology heats pans and the food in them, but nothing else. The surface around the pans stays cool. So nothing gets burnt on, and the sleek, flat surface means there's nowhere for dirt to hide. Plus it only starts to get hot when there's cookware on the surface. So no cookware, no heat, no accidents.
