Power differences in induction hobs
Power connected to the number of hotpoints
The higher the number of hotpoints, the
Heterogenous power among hotpoints
Specifically, the power of an induction
Variable temperature build-up
The power of a hotpoint
Simultaneously, note that the maximum power of a hotpoint corresponds to the power generated when the hotpoint is used at full power. Generally, you can adjust the power at 9 to 15 levels.
The booster function
Some induction hobs offer a booster function. This function allows you to temporarily increase the power of one or several hotpoints. Still about the SCFI704S, the two 2,000 W hotpoints reach 2,600 W and with the booster on, the two 1,500 W hotpoints reach 1,800 W with the booster function on.
Electrical installation and consumption
Obviously, the power of an induction hob also determines its level of power consumption. The more powerful the hob, the higher the consumption.
Before you set up your equipment, you should consider this fact, as well as the characteristics of your electrical installation. Namely, you should make sure that it can take the power of your electric hob.
