Abstract in different language: In recent years, domestic induction hobs have become very popular due to their excellent performance, easy cleaning process, safety and high efficiency [1]. Currently, most induction hobs are placed inside a hole dug into the kitchen countertop. This approach, which is mandatory for traditional gas cooktops, can easily be avoided by installing the induction hob under the countertop. In fact, induction heating appliances transfer power to the pot via electromagnetic coupling and the heating of the magnetic steel bottom is achieved through the circulation of eddy currents. This way, the surface of the cooker is heated only by the pot and usually reaches relatively low temperatures. A key factor in the design of this type of solution is the choice of material for the countertop, which should have good mechanical and thermal properties in order to endure the typical temperatures reached in the cooking process. Many different materials have been taken into account, such as marble, quartz and granite [2]. In this paper, a popular material used for synthetic countertops, Corian© manufactured by DuPont, is proposed as a possible solution for the use of the induction cooker under the kitchen counter.
