Typically on gas stoves, hot air escapes from under the side of the pot, reducing heat transfer, and slowing your cooking.
To improve this, metal fins are added onto the bottom of the cookware to increase heating surface area.
As a result, the Turbo Pot's advanced heat sink technology captures more heat, reducing energy waste.
