What Do We like about the Tramontina induction cooking system?

It has 10 power levels which allow it to be used for a varied range of cooking. It also has a flat surface which makes it easy to clean and maintain.

There are touch controls which makes it easy to operate. Heat can be adjusted with touch buttons. There is good temperature control which adapts to changes quite swiftly.

Only the circular part of the cooktop (which gets in contact with cookware) is heated up leaving the rest of the area unheated and safe to touch. It also has a built-in timer which tracks the cooking duration. It switches off cooking once the time duration is over. It also cools down instantly as soon as it’s shut off.

In case you remove the pan, the induction cooktop automatically turns off in 10 seconds. This makes it safer than gas and electric cooktops. There is also installed overheat protection. This makes the induction shut down automatically in case it gets overheated.

The size of the cooktop is big enough to cook with large sized cookware which can be used for boiling, saute, sear or fry.

After cooking the LED will display hot or cool and the fan will run for 1-2 minutes depending on the how heated up the element is. This is a safety feature for the consumer.

There is a lock button on the cooktop which is a safety feature which when activated will ensure the procedure of cooking goes on uninterrupted if children are around. The display setting will remain active and locked. All the other features and functions will also remain locked. For reasons of safety, only the power button will work. This is to avoid accidents in case lock feature gets jammed or stuck.

The cooktop senses non-induction friendly cookware beeps and shuts down in 10 seconds. It can also sense if no cookware is kept on it and shuts down.

The package of two pans with induction means there is no worry to purchase induction friendly cookware as cookware comes along with the induction. Tramontina four-piece induction cooking system comes with high-quality cookware and cooktop at affordable price.

There is no heat leakage to the atmosphere so the kitchen stays cool during cooking

The color combination of steel and black makes it attractive to the eyes.

The handles of the pan are silicon-based which ensure no heat is transferred to the handles. They are ergonomically shaped for ease of operating.

The cookware that comes in this 4 piece set has a durable exterior finish of enamel which is pleasing to the eyes. The smooth finish also ensures no ridges or pronounced edges and hence does not scratch the cooktop surface.

The interior is non stick which will ensure no sticking and burning of food.

What’s not so great?

With the Tramontina four-piece induction cooking system, heat is not evenly distributed due to aluminum present in the cookware. Heat is more in the center and slightly less in the edge of the pan when measured by some consumers.

Frying pan has no lid over it which is needed for certain cooking styles.

There is a big gap in heat increments. There are 35-degree increments between settings and it starts at 140. For those looking for specific temperatures, it might be an issue like for gourmet cooking, etc.

Being portable and compact, the distance to be maintained to avoid EMF exposure of a minimum of 1 foot by ICNIRP can be overlooked. Always place the cookware first and then switch on the induction to avoid stray radiations.

It cannot work in voltage fluctuation and shows error and needs to be shut down.

How Tramontina Induction Cooking System Works?

Tramontina induction cooking system is compact and portable. It has a coil below the smooth surface. When the cookware is kept on top of the cooktop and cooktop is plugged in and switched on, an alternating current is passed through the coil creating a magnetic field.

This magnetic field induces electric current generation inside the vessel through electromagnetic induction. The heat energy produced by this eddy electric current is responsible for cooking food.

The heat generated inside the cooking vessel remains inside. Nothing outside the ferromagnetic vessel and the cooking zone below are affected by this electromagnetic induction process.

This is why the rest of the area remains cool to touch and is safer.

After the power is turned on select the power required for cooking from 1 to 10. Use the + and – button to adjust power levels. For temperature, select the temperature button and then press + and – to adjust the temperature.

The timer feature allows you to enter a selected cooking time for a specific dish. After the time has lapsed, the induction will power off indicating the time is over.

After pressing the timer button, the numbers will blink on the LED. Press + and – accordingly from 1 minute to 3 hours. Consistently holding down the plus and minus button will adjust the time in a gap of ten minutes increments.

As soon as cookware is removed cooktop automatically beeps and shuts down in 10 seconds. Always lift the cookware and do not slide it. You can also use the power off button and then remove the cookware.

Caution when using the Tramontina four-piece induction cooking system

Wait for the hot sign in the LED display to turn into cool and the fan to stop before cleaning the induction.

There is a proper way of cleaning the induction cooktop. Never immerse or clean it in running water. That can damage the cooktop.

Always place the cookware on the cooking zone to start the process of cooking. Placing it outside or unevenly can hamper the cooking process.

Make sure the air vent and the air inlet are not blocked.

How To Use Tramontina Induction Cookware?

When using the pans for the first time hand wash with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly.

You can also season the pan by rubbing light cooking oil and heating it on medium temperature for 2-3 minutes. When cooled, hand-wash again with warm soapy water and dry.

Avoid using metal or sharp spoons with the cookware. Use nylon, bamboo or wooden spoons if possible. This will protect the non-stick layer and avoid damage to the cooking surface.
