Panasonic hopes to revolutionize the way you cook with its new Countertop Induction Oven, the world’s first. It combines proprietary induction and double-infrared heating technologies to cook food faster and more efficiently.

The oven requires little to no preheating, and can grill, bake, toast, and reheat food. It features preset menu options and adjustable temperature control for flavorful, perfectly cooked dishes, according to a release. The direct induction heat and sealed, compact interior are key to producing these results.

Lisa Knierim, vice president of Panasonic Home Division, says, “Our new, one-of-a-kind Countertop Induction Oven will change the landscape of the consumer's kitchen. The CIO is an example of innovation at its best. It delivers a quick, yet high-end and healthy cooking experience to consumers in a compact, easy-to-use design.”
