Induction Ranges

Induction Ranges

Hello internet shoppers! This is Steve Ziegler, product expert at the WEBstaurant Store, and today we will be going over the basics of induction cooking. Induction is a very safe, responsive, and cost effective form of cooking that’s used the world over. And of course, if you buy your induction equipment at the WEBstaurant Store, it will save you money. Before we begin in earnest, I want to mention that today we’re going to be demonstrating on Vollrath’s Mirage 1800 watt induction range, but we also have this entry-level induction range. Now on the internet you’ll find a few ranges that are cheaper (not many, but a few), but they’re also less wattage. The problem is that, just like microwaves, the wattage effects cooking times. So while this entry-level unit may not have the same features that make this Vollrath Mirage great for high end and high volume applications, with the same 1800 watts of power, it cooks every bit as fast. Now here at the WEBstaurant Store we have induction ranges that run the gamete from counter-top units like these, all the way up to drop-in units and units that have up to 3500 watts of power per burner. But what is induction cooking? Very simply, it’s the process of exciting the atoms in, in other words heating, the pan itself. For this to work you need a pan that can be magnetized, so you’ll need to use a pan made out of materials like cast-iron, stainless steel, and enamel wear works great. What you don’t want to use are pans that are all aluminum, copper, or made out of glass. Those will not work on an induction range. Now you can use pans like I’m using today, which are stainless steel with an aluminum-clad bottom. They work just fine, and are very inexpensive here at the WEBstaurant Store. By just heating the pan, induction ranges have some excellent advantages. The first one being safety. You can see that I can put my hands right here where this is heating, and it is not even hot. Now you have to be careful, because the pan itself heats the unit, but it’s not hot enough to hurt my hand at all when my hand is waving right over top. You don’t want to do this on a gas or electric range. This advantage really comes into play when you’re catering or if you’re in a buffet type situation. You know, those butane burners are great until some tipsy conventioneer trips into your sauté station and catches his jacket on fire. Besides the safety factor, the fact that induction only heats the pan means that it’s very efficient. In fact, it’s 90% efficient. Gas is only 50%, which means that while 50% heats your pan, the other 50% of that heat energy is going to heat your room. And who wants a hot kitchen? Okay, one last advantage of induction: instant adjustability. If you’ve ever worked with an electric stove or halogen range, you know the annoyance of having to wait until the burner warms or cools off. That’s why so many of us love cooking with gas. Induction cooking is the same as cooking with gas in that way. Remember, we’re just heating the pan with an electromagnet, so we can adjust that energy as quickly as we want. We can also bring this down to a very low simmer, which is also very useful. Well now that you know a little bit more about induction cooking, explore our site! We have an induction range that will suit anyone’s need. Thank you for watching! If you have any questions please feel free to use our live chat button.

Vollrath Mirage Pro vs. Mirage Cadet

Vollrath Mirage Pro vs. Mirage Cadet

Richard: Welcome to Vollrath University, Vollrath's education center for the food service industry. My name is Richard Rupp and today I have with me, John Wojcik, the director of equipment marketing here at Vollrath. Today we're going to talk about induction cooking, and we have two models that John will talk to you a little about the features and benefits, and a little later we'll show you some uses for these two models. John: Hello. Today we'll be talking about new products from Vollrath, the new Mirage Pro and the new Mirage Cadet. At Vollrath we feature in-house design, in-house development, and in-house manufacturing, which ensures the highest quality products in the induction industry. In addition, we partner with top customers, top chefs, and top culinary schools to put together the proper specs to make this a practical food service piece of equipment. Let me tell you about the new Mirage Pro. The new Mirage Pro features the new G4 engine. The G4 engine has four IGBTs or four switches which gives it incredible temperature control and incredible durability, so durable that there's a two year warranty on this product. The way that the unit works is you turn the unit on. The display will say, add pan. So you would add an induction-ready pan to it, it'll sense the pan and then you'll actually see a value. This value is the temperature which is 80 degrees Fahrenheit. We've increased the range to the lower range of 80 degrees for tempering chocolate or for actually keeping chocolate warm. It also has a timer that you can actually very quickly turn the temperature up or down, a rotary timer with indents so that it actually is a very high quality feel and it's easy to turn quickly. When you take the pan off, it'll say, add pan again. A unique new feature to this is if you have a non-induction ready pan, which is an aluminum pan, place the pan on the unit and it'll immediately say, bad pan, indicating that this is not an induction-ready unit. So some nice new features for the new Mirage Pro, including the new G4 engine with a two year warranty. Now let's talk about the new Mirage Cadet. The Mirage Cadet has a new G1 engine, which has one IGBT. It's a more limited feature item than the Mirage Pro. You actually have, if you turn the unit on, you have 20 settings versus 100. You don't have a rotary knob. You basically have up, down, push button control. So this is going to be used for more limited menu items, like an omelet station. Something that doesn't require all the cooking techniques of the Mirage Pro.

Details

Make your fajitas sizzle with the Vollrath Mirage 59500F fajita induction heater! Featuring a low-profile, compact design, this completely portable induction heater is designed specifically for heating cast iron, induction-ready skillets to sizzling temperatures, so you can then add oil or water to create the alluring sizzle effect.

Combining form with functionality, its durable 18 gauge type 304 stainless steel casing looks sharp and, along with the vitro ceramic top, is extremely easy to clean. Its digital controls offer easy one-touch, push button operation of pre-programmed heating settings for simple operation, while rubber feet prevent slipping for added safety.

This heater generates magnetic fields to directly heat the pan for quick and safe heating. A room temperature pan can be heated to 450-550 degrees Fahrenheit in as quickly as 120 seconds, while a "HOT" warning displays if the unit is still hot when turned off.

This Vollrath 59500F fajita skillet induction heater comes equipped with a variety of other safety features, too! Auto shutoff prevents overheating when the pan is empty or absent from the range for a determined amount of time, while the small article detection feature eliminates the risk of heating objects such as watches and jewelry that may come in contact with the heating surface.

The unit comes with a cord and NEMA 5-15P plug. NSF, FCC, and UL Listed. Please consult the Specification Sheet for further installation requirements and electrical details.
