We were recently at a home building show and saw a great demo of Electrolux's version of the induction cooktop. It was turned on and then a quart of ice cubes dropped in and we had boiling water in less than 2 mins.

Induction Stove top

Postby Josquin » Wed Nov 28, 2007 2:10 pm

Sure looks like an induction stove top. I didn't realize they had units in the 50s.

My family and one of my friends had induction stove tops in the 70s. My parents are still using their original, 30 year old, induction stove top.

Induction is an old technology that never caught on here in the States, although it is considered a more efficient method of stove top cooking. The Electrolux looks really good. I have a Kenmore 42800 induction stovetop.

I for one can't wait for the day when we have punch cards instead of cook books. Great find!

There is a better film of that kitchen at archive.org (narrated in English, and in color).
It was designed by Firigidare, then a division of General Motors. The whole film show some GM czrs as well.
