The EGO Twist® electronic cooking zone control system is now available from the company. The company describes the technology as similar to the TouchControl, except it utilizes a magnetically fixed rotary knob that doesn't require a hole in the glass ceramic surface. The system is reportedly resistant to dirt collection and wearing due to magnetic detection of the rotary motion of the control knob. Features such as intuitive general switching off and childproofing are activated by removal of the control knob. Illuminated versions of the Twist knob, which are powered by inductive energy and data transfer from the cooktop, are available to indicate set cooking stages.
