Enjoy the ease, speed, and safety of induction cooking with Summit's selection of energy efficient induction cooktops. The SINC5B36B is a 5-zone induction cooktop designed for use with 208-240V power sources. It comes in a popular 36" width that fits commonly sized 34 5/8" W x 19 5/8" D cutouts. This unit requires professional installation (cord not included). Smooth black glass made by EuroKera creates an attractive, easy-to-clean surface. All five elements include a "booster" setting to maximize cooking power. The center 2300W zone (3000W at boost) features an extra large 11" radius, perfect for woks and other oversized cookware. The front left and rear right elements are sized at 8 1/4", ideal for boiling large pots of water or cooking with woks and other large cookware. They can function at a maximum of 3000W for up to 5 minutes when using the "booster" setting, or 2000W during regular operation. The 6 1/4" rear left and front right elements reach 2000W at the booster setting, or 1500W in normal operation. The smart burner layout helps provide plenty of room so that larger cooking vessels are spaced apart, making it easier to use all four elements without cookware colliding. Centered upfront for convenient use, the touch controls allow intuitive operation, with a slider control panel that makes it easy to adjust your heat. The digital display shows which elements are in use and their power setting. Audible beeps sound when the touch controls are activated. This cooktop is equipped with a child lock that allows you to disable the controls to prevent unintended heating. A "stop & go" function allows you to immediately turn both zones off if needed, with the last settings resuming when reactivated. This unit also includes a timer function that lets you program a power level and cook time (up to 99 minutes) that can either turn the unit off when complete, or serve as a visual countdown with an audible alert when the set time has been reached. Safety features include automatic shutdown, overheat protection, and overflow protection, which will temporarily disable the power if boiling liquid touches the control panel. With its ideal size and advanced safety features, the SINC5B36B is the perfect cooktop to ensure intuitive, safe cooking in a variety of small kitchen settings.

NOTE: Induction cooling utilizes magnetized energy that starts inside the cookware, meaning the temperature of the actual cooktop surface does not get nearly as hot as traditional gas or electric elements. Most of the heat is retained inside your cookware, making induction technology the most efficient heating method for your kitchen. Because induction cooking requires magnetic energy, your cookware must be made of cast iron, steel, or magnetic stainless steel. Materials that will not work include aluminum, copper, and non-magnetic stainless steel. Many of your current pots and pans may already be induction-friendly. In order to determine if your cookware will work on an induction surface, simply place a magnet (such as one hanging on your refrigerator) on the bottom of the pan. If the magnet sticks, the pan will cook. Summit also offers an induction cookware set for purchase.
