IKEA, a Swedish company, manufactures home comfort products and appliances, including the Eldig line of electric cooktops. As of 2011, the company offers two models with their major difference being color. You can purchase IKEA products from their online or retail stores.
The dimensions for the Eldig models 100.919.95 and 701.104.20 electric cooktops are 35 3/4 by 24 1/4 by 7 5/8 inches, and they weigh 35 lbs. The 100.919.95 model is available with a black finish, and the 701.104.20 model has a white finish. Both models are made of a combination of glass and ceramic.
Both models have four cooking zones. The largest zone is 9 inches in diameter, produces up to 2,500 watts of heat and is used for quickly bringing items to a boil, or frying or searing meats. The two mid-sized cooking zones are used for normal cooking duties, including cooking meats, vegetables and soups. The 8-inch diameter zone produces up to 1,800 watts of heat, while the 7-inch diameter zone produces up to 1,500 watts. The smallest zone is 6 inches in diameter, and produces either 900 or 1,200 watts of heat. This zone is used strictly for simmering foods or cooking delicate items, like sauces.
The Eldig electric cooktops comes with infinite heating settings, ensuring that your foods always cook properly. All cooking zones use a radiant (thermal energy) heat source, which cooks your food more evenly than standard convection heat. The surface of the cooktop is extremely smooth, decreasing the likelihood of knocking over an unevenly-placed pot or pan. The knobs on the cooktop pop up, allowing you to clean underneath them easily. Never clean a hot cooktop. Always allow it to cool first.
IKEA offers a five-year warranty on all appliances, which covers labor and materials. Your warranty is void if you use your product for any purpose other than normal household use. You must have your original receipt to qualify for warranty service. To repair your cooktop, you must take it to an authorized IKEA service partner or an IKEA location. Normal wear and tear, and consumable parts are not covered by this warranty.
