Enjoy the freedom of using the FlexInduction surface. It can accommodate large roasting trays with big pots of boiling water, or turn an array of smaller pans into a manageable working space.

The secret is the FlexInduction’s auto-detection that accommodates the location and size of pots and pans as they are  moved around and generates heat only where it is needed. Enjoy maximum space and freedom by fitting each cooking implement on different zones of the cooktop. Your FlexInduction will simply adjust to your configuration.

The cooktop heats your pans by magnetic currents. Because the heat is focused on your cooking implements, your cooktop remains cool having only absorbed a little radiant heat. You’ll enjoy greater safety and energy savings, plus the benefit of preventing spillages and overflows from burning onto the cooktop surface. This clip clearly demonstrates the benefits of Neff FlexInduction.

Make the most of the FlexInduction space by cooking in bulk. Imagine getting ahead on the weekend by preparing flexible meals that can be used for lunches, dinners and snacks throughout the week. This quick and easy Corn Fritter recipe is a great start.
