Induction, unlike a traditional range, does not use fire or electricity to heat up the cooktop. Instead, this innovative technology uses specific magnetic forces that only heat the pan, not the cooktop. One of the many benefits of using an induction cooktop is that spills don’t burn as they hit the surface, and can be easily wiped off. With four elements that boil faster, a six-minute quick preheat and true convection features, the Frigidaire Gallery Freestanding Induction Range will help busy families prepare every meal with ease. Furthermore, Frigidaire’s induction range has the Effortless™ Temperature Probe, where the oven sends an alert when the pre-set desired temperature has been reached. The oven then holds the desired temperature of the food by automatically switching to a keep warm function for better cooking results. In addition to this innovative technology, the range has a Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel exterior that resists fingerprints and is easy to clean, keeping its sleek look at all times.
