The Max Burton Induction Cooktop with Interface Disk from Aervoe Industries Inc. makes it possible to use any type of cookware when preparing meals. An induction cooktop provides added safety because it stays cool except where it makes contact with the pan.
While induction stoves require certain cookware to create a magnetic reaction to produce heat, the Induction Interface Disk eliminates the need. The 8-inch-diameter, stainless-steel disk is placed between the cooktop and the cookware to achieve the heating reaction. The AC-powered cooktop operates at 1,800 watts, has a temperature range of 140 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and includes a 180-minute timer.
The manufacturer’s suggested retail price of the cooktop and disk interface set (#6015) is $149.90. The cooktop (#6000) and disk interface (#6010) also can be purchased separately for $111.90 and $49, respectively.
