New British Cookstove Heats With Lightbulbs
"It works like gas but uses electricity," says manufacturers of a first-of-its-kind cookstove that uses "instant heat" high intensity tungsten halogen lamps to produce heat rather than resistance-type burner elements that take several minutes to heat up and cool down.
When turned off, the stove looks like a ceramic-topped electric stove. But when it comes on, the four narrow bulbs that run across the surface of the burner area becomes readily visible.
Cooking begins immediately and yet the rest of the stove top remains cool due to reflectors arranged below the bulbs which direct the heat. You can turn the bulbs down when needed and get an immediate heat response as with a gas flame. There are six different settings on each burner for precise control.
The stove, not including an oven, sells for $642.
