Gasland chef comes with a good timer function. It can be set as a minute reminder or to turn off a cooking zone after a set period of time. The timer can be set for anything between one and 99 minutes.

What we like about the Gasland chef IH90BF induction cooktop

The heating elements are spaced evenly ensuring no overlapping of the burners. The control panel is located right in front of the induction making it easy for the consumer to operate and control cooking.

The cooktop is touch-sensitive and responds quite well to mild touch. You don’t need to apply any pressure.

There is a safety feature of automatic pan detection in Gasland chef induction. No heating will take place unless there is an induction-compatible pan on the heating zone.

The cooking zone will automatically shut down after one minute. It will also shut down if no pan is detected or the pan is lifted away from the heating zone for one minute. The cooktop will shut down after two minutes.

The cooktop has a child lock feature. All keys will be locked once this feature is activated except the on/off button.

This is to switch off the induction in case of any emergency. However, once you switch the induction back on, you will have to unlock the induction first in order to begin. It prevents accidental activation or change of settings.

The cooktop comes with an inbuilt temperature sensor. In case the cooktop starts overheating due to excessive temperature, the induction cooktop will stop the operation automatically.

The cooktop comes with a double function on the timer feature. It can be used as a minute reminder and can also be used to turn off the cooking zone after a set period.

The induction has a good sensor that has a small item detection feature. Incase small items are detected on it, it automatically goes into a standby mode in one minute.

Another safety feature is the residual heat setting. It makes the chef aware that the cooktop is hot to touch. Once the heating zone has cooled down, the indicator disappears.

With just a glance the chef knows that the cooktop is ready to clean. This is a great safety feature preventing accidents.

What’s not so great

The control panel is placed too close for comfort near the middle heating element. water droplets may fall on the control panel.

The controls are highly sensitive. The cooktop needs to be locked for smooth operation to avoid an unnecessary change of settings. Even a thin film of water droplets makes the controls difficult to operate.

Gasland chef induction does not work on all cookware. It needs ferromagnetic and flat based diameter having a diameter of the heating element or 1 inch smaller or larger. Any other measurement will lead to improper cooking.

The front and rear elements are too near each other for comfort. The handle of one cookware on the heating zone can disturb or lodge into the handle of cookware of another. Long handles can also be a problem.

People with a pacemaker or similar medical device should stand at least 1 foot away from the cooktop. It becomes difficult to operate the induction from such a distance.

There is no pause button. The pause button is a great feature to hold cooking or delay cooking according to convenience.

The induction takes up quite a bit of space. Choose the cooktop only if you have good space. Installing it is not very easy in cramped places. Secondly, it is a built-in cooktop. If used over the counter, it may not be very stable.

The induction is prone to making a buzzing sound on higher temperature settings.

Wiring and installation would require professional help. If the cooktop breaks down, it will require professional help as well due to the complex nature of induction.
