Brand/Supplier: Capic (Grande Cuisine)
UK launch: March 2016
While the Capic two-burner gas top looks a lot like any other standard gas unit, its ingenuity lies in its Ecoflam technology which ensures that when a pan is taken off the heat the main burner switches off automatically, saving energy.
When a pan is replaced on the gas top, the flame reactivates, springing back to life in an instant. The system therefore introduces an ‘induction-style’ effect to the burner, ensuring that it only comes to life when a pan is in place.
Capic estimates that it reduces gas bills by around 30%, eliminates technical problems with the pilot light and thermocouple by up to 90% and doubles the life expectancy of the burner.
