An elegant glass design with bevelled edges on front side or on all sides. The ultimate in versatility, 'CookBridge' provides flexibility for pans of all shapes and sizes. By simply combining two induction zones you can create an extra large zone for big pots and pans. Auto heat control is simple yet effective, Sharp puts the most common cooking tasks at your fingertips, allowing you to boil, fry, melt chocolate and keep your food warm at the touch of a button. Sharp's induction boost allows maximum power in seconds for a speed-up heating and a cooking time reduction. When the hob is switched on, an independent timer (1 to 99 minutes) can be programmed for every cooking zone so that they switch off automatically. When the hob is switched off, you also have the possibility to set a minute minder.
