  • Description

    A new cooking stove has been introduced in the united States which can cook through ice -- without melting it. it works on magnetic principles. When the cooker is switched on its electronic circuits affect the magnetic field within a metal saucepan, thus producing heat. But the surface of the stove stays cool, and it is even possible to put materials between the pan and the stove which remain unaffected by heat.

    The stove costs 1,500 dollars now, but within three to five years mass-production could bring the price down to a level comparable with conventional cookers.

    SYNOPSIS: It looks like a conjuring trick -- but actually this is a demonstration of a new cooker which uses electronics to cook filet mignon, or warm backed beans. The pan gets hot but the stove doesn't -- and you can even fry over a block of ice if you want to show off the your friends.

    It's all done by electronics -- this little gadget affects the magnetic field in the frying pan.

    The pan gets hot -- but the cooker stays cool. And its extra safe -- There's less fire risk and mother can even remove the power unit to stop the children from switching it on. The revolutionary cooker has been put on sale in America for about six hundred pounds. But the manufacturers estimate that within three to five years they'll be able to bring the price down to the same level as ordinary stoves.
