Smeg introduces Area, a new state-of-the-art induction hob
Italian brand Smeg’s new Area induction hob utilises the brand’s VIVO screen technology. Smeg says Area is its most intelligent hob to date and one of the most advanced on the market today.
The hob has capacity for 12 pans, making it perfect for hosting Christmas dinners and family parties. The Area hob also boasts four pre-set settings for warming, simmering, boiling and cooking.
“The Area Hob is a game changer within the induction hob market,” Smeg said in a statement.
With intelligent Follow Pot technology, the Area hob has 38 sensors to help recognise each individual pan, follow it around the hob whilst maintaining the initial settings. For ultimate control, the induction system allows for each pot to have its own timer and up to 17 power levels.
In addition, Smeg’s recently-launched cookware pans are induction hob safe, making it them the perfect cooking utensils to use on the Area Hob.
The Area hob can heat up to 12 pots of differing sizes, with no predetermined cooking zones, down to pans as small as 9cm. Simply place the pans where convenient and the Autopot detection function will automatically recognise the position of the pots throughout the hob, saving users from having to fuss with adjusting the temperature settings or heating a new cooking zone.
Key selling points:
- Capacity for 12 pans
