ControlInduc means no more overheating. Even at maximum power, the skillet regulates the temperature (485 F). Many consumers and chefs often have problems finding the correct temperature for frying meat or fish or for making pancakes. When the food is overheated, it burns and sticks to the bottom of the pan. A product with a non-stick layer prevents the food from sticking, but at specific high temperatures, the coating will disintegrate and lose it's non-stick properties. Demeyere produced the first pans with the ControlInduc system that limits the maximum temperature to 485 F using induction cook tops. Even at full power, the skillet will regulate the cooking temperature. These products are available with non-stick coating (ControlInduc) or without coating (ProControl). Up to 425F, the product with the ControlInduc system will heat up normally, as any other pan would, but above that temperature the transmitting energy of the inductors will gradually decrease and stabilize somewhere between 475-485F. Then, it automatically adjusts itself as to how much power is required to keep this temperature and also compensate for any heat lost in the air o the food.
