ISO 9000 Certification

The manufacturing facility that produces the True Induction product line has its ISO 9000 Certification. This certification is obtained by following a defined set of management standards defined by the International Organization for Standardization. As an industry leader, we hold our suppliers to these high standards and more for optimal quality assurance. In fact, dedication to quality is reflected in factory visits and quality testing checkpoints.

Detailed Product Testing

Prior to selecting the single and dual burners currently offered by True Induction a detailed product testing was undertaken with a sample/display unit. We wanted to make sure that the products would withstand normal cooking applications and perform as indicated by the manufacturer. As a result of testing the single and double burners in real life situations we are able to assure that the product's specifications are in fact applicable to the modern day household.

Additionally, further testing revealed that True Induction cookers will perform successfully in small to medium traffic restaurant settings. As we continue to expand our product line we'll consistently test and re-test product reliability for quality assurance.
