LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic announced today the world's first Countertop Induction Oven (CIO) was selected as a CES 2017 Innovation Award Honoree. The revolutionary Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven combines proprietary induction and double-infrared heating technologies for delicious food and healthy cooking options in minutes.
Panasonic's Countertop Induction Oven calls upon the company's more than 40-years history of innovation in induction heating technology. It quickly grills, bakes, re-heats and requires little or no preheating, resulting in perfectly cooked meals. With pre-set menu options and adjustable temperature control, the Panasonic CIO takes the guesswork out of grilling steaks, cooking chicken and vegetables all-at-once but with results that are more flavorful -- crispy on the outside and tender and moist on the inside.
The secret to appetizing results delivered by the Panasonic CIO is the combination of direct induction heat, a sealed, compact interior and circulating steam to enhance the taste. The CIO's unique, dishwasher-safe grill reduces excessive moisture and oil while producing BBQ-quality sear and sizzle.
"Our one-of-a-kind Countertop Induction Oven will change the consumer's kitchen," said Persia Tatar, Senior Marketing Manager. "The CIO is an example of food-tech innovation at its best. It delivers a quick, yet high-end and healthy cooking experience to consumers in a compact, easy-to-use design."
Panasonic will be demonstrating the CIO throughout the show, serving up delicious food and featuring recipes created in partnership with AllRecipes.com.
The Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven is now available for $599.95.
