CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Transform meals and reduce prep time with Electrolux's new Induction Free Standing Range, announced today as the latest in a line of premium kitchen appliances. Now available, the new unit features the latest in induction technology and time-saving capabilities that deliver the results of a professional kitchen at home. As designers of appliances for almost 50 percent of Michelin-starred restaurants across the world, Electrolux has adapted its leading professional technologies, including induction cooking, to bring these leading kitchen solutions home for consumers.
"Induction meets consumers' desire to achieve top chef results at home," says John Weinstock, Vice President Marketing for Electrolux Major Appliances in North America. "We are excited to take this technology, incorporate it into a free standing range with a new, innovative self-cleaning oven system and deliver it to the marketplace at an amazing price point."
The Electrolux Stainless Steel Induction Free Standing Range boasts the ultimate in precision cooking, ensuring that chocolate melts perfectly and tuna has just the right amount of sear every time. Common in professional kitchens across Europe's culinary capitals, induction cooking offers greater temperature control, more even cooking and better energy efficiency in comparison to gas or electric options. With induction cooking heat is generated directly in the cookware, adjusting instantly to pots and pans of different sizes. This transfer of heat directly to the cookware via magnetic energy also keeps the cooktop cooler to the touch, making it safer and easier to clean.
The range's oven is outfitted with Perfect Convect3®, a convection technology that produces consistently even results, delivers up to 30 percent faster cooking times, and provides even more baking options via a third convection element. The Rapid Preheat feature expedites warming 25 percent faster than traditional ovens, and clean-up is made even simpler with the new, innovative Fresh Clean™ self-cleaning system that cleans with virtually no odor or smoke.
The new induction free standing range is available in stainless steel and retails for $2,199. Please visit www.electroluxappliances.com for more information.
