SAI64 - SmartSense 60cm induction cooktop

Induction cooking uses induction heating to directly heat a cooking vessel, as opposed to using heat transfer from electrical coils or burning gas as with a traditional cooking stove. To be used on an induction cooktop, a cooking vessel must be made of a ferromagnetic metal, or placed on an interface disk which enables non-induction cookware to be used on induction cooking surfaces.

An induction cooker is faster and more energy-efficient than a traditional electric cooking surface. It allows instant control of cooking energy similar to gas burners. Other cooking methods use flames or red-hot heating elements; induction heating only heats the pot. Because the surface of the cook top is only heated from contact with the vessel, the possibility of burn injury is significantly less than with other methods. The induction effect does not heat the air around the vessel, resulting in further energy efficiencies. Cooling air is blown through the electronics but emerges only a little warmer than ambient temperature.


The Smeg SAI64 60cm induction cooktop has four induction cooking zones, two of which feature Smeg’s Surface Share technology - they can be combined and operated with a single control. Smeg’s Surface Share zones are the largest available and rectangular in shape, ensuring that every part of the zone to the edge is usable, without any cold spots. You can use pans of different shapes - long, large, irregular or rectangular; and any number of pans on the single shared surface.


Zones which do not feature Surface Share are delineated by a cross where the zone’s horizontal crossbar is the maximum recommended diameter of the cooking utensil’s base and the vertical crossbar being the minimum diameter. Only the base area of the pan is activated by the electromagnetic field within the cooking zone so there is no wastage of power.


For precise cooking control, each zone is operated by an ergonomic slide control where you can choose to touch directly or finger swipe up and down the 1 to 9 power levels with no ‘tapping’ required.


There are three pre-selected options to take the guesswork out of cooking – keep warm 42°, simmer 70° or rolling boil 94°C.


After switching off the cooktop, it’s also possible to reactivate all of the previous settings.


Each zone can be programmed for automatic cooking, where the zone heats to full power and then automatically reduces to the level you have selected. Stop-cook timers can also be activated for each zone. The STOP & GO function means you can pause the whole cooktop, and return to your previous settings if you need to leave the cooktop unattended for any reason.


For safety, Smeg’s SmartSense cooktops feature automatic spillage stop, touch control locks, child safety locks and residual heat indicators. Cooling fans ensure the temperature beneath the carcase is tempered and protects the electronic controls. And because boil-overs will not burn onto the surface, SmartSense cooktops are very easy to clean simply with a damp cloth.
