Control Induction are experts in Induction & Plancha cooking, with Plancha cooking being a special passion due to the incredible results possible, often improving the quality of food that a restaurant produces.

We took a client to visit a Control Induction suite at MICHELIN Star Lumière restaurant in Cheltenham. Jon Howe the Chef, who is, with his lovely partner Helen, proprietor of Lumière would have been someone who we would have said doesn't actually ‘need’ a Plancha. Although that statement still stands, what Jon showcased was that a great chef can have an easier life, with less things to go wrong, if their equipment gives them amazingly consistent results.

Something we noticed while on our visit was just how good Jon’s suite looked after 8 months of use (2nd image below), a true testament to good engineering and high hygiene standards in the Lumière kitchen.
