ControlInduc® stainless steel frying pans regulate the maximum heat on induction hobs to 250°C, meaning the pan can never overheat.
Pans in this series are covered by the Demeyere warranty of 30 years against manufacturer and material defects for domestic use, and 10 years for commercial use.
The unique ControlInduc® multi-layer material is used both in the base and in the sides of the products. It ensures optimum heat distribution up to the edge and perfect control over the preparation process, without risk of overheating.
ControlInduc® stainless steel frying pans regulate the maximum heat on induction hobs to 250°C, meaning the pan can never overheat. Above this temperature, the pans can lose their magnetic properties.
A unique electrochemical treatment that makes the stainless steel easy to clean and more resistant to fingerprints, harsh detergents and strong acidic foods. Products retain their silvery-white colour, even after years of use.
Due to their design and shape from 18/10 solid cast stainless steel, the handles stay cool for longer on electric stoves. Thanks to a unique welding technology, the handles are firmly attached and extremely hygienic. Dirt, fat or bacteria are not able to seep in.
Induction hobs generate very intense heat in very little time. In order to maintain the ideal frying temperature, Demeyere has developed pans with ControlInduc®, a safety system that limits the maximum temperature of the frying pan to 250°C / 485°F on induction hobs.
Until about 220°C / 425°F, a product equipped with ControlInduc® heats normally, but above this temperature the power of the inductors is automatically and progressively decreased by the ControlInduc® system until it stabilises between 245°C / 475°F and 250°C / 485°F.
When, for example, one puts cold or raw food in the pan, the cooking surface cools slightly. Recognising this drop in temperature, the ControlInduc® system automatically re-engages the pan with the inductors until the desired temperature is reached.
And if a ControlInduc® pan is left on the induction plate it will not overheat. Induction needs contact with a magnetic surface to create heat. The unique alloy on the base of ControlInduc® pans loses its magnetic properties above 250°C / 485°F meaning it can never overheat.
Temperature control is important. Due to the quality of the ControlInduc® frying pans, it is important to always bake over a medium heat. The normal baking temperature is between 175 and 230°C.
Note: Induction hobs generate very intense heat in very little time. Your frying pan will therefore heat up very quickly. Never use the 'Booster' or 'Power' function for baking.
When baking in a stainless steel pan, it is important that you choose the right fat. Preferably use butter, margarine, or an oil that can withstand higher temperatures such as peanut oil or corn oil. Virgin olive oil (“extra virgin”) is not recommended: the natural taste and the fragrances in the oil burn too quickly and cause a sticky film in the pan. If you still want to use olive oil, choose refined olive oil.
Always place the frying pan in the middle of a hob that complements the diameter of the product. Specifically for induction hobs where the zones are not indicated on the glass plate, it is important to place the cookware in the centre of the inductors. Find out where exactly the inductors are by consulting the tech specs of the hob. To avoid overheating, do not use 28cm and 32cm frying pans on hob diameters smaller than 18cm and 22cm respectively.
