4 Cooktop Cooking and Design Features You Didn’t Know You Needed

by Waverly Wilde

As you continue to grow as a cook, having the equipment to keep up with you – and even push you – is rather helpful to improve your culinary skills. For this reason, having smart kitchen appliances with innovative cooking and design features can be of inspiration during your time cooking. So, when it comes to preparing food on your cooktop, we’ve picked out some superb features to be your sidekick while kicking butt in the kitchen.  

Get More Coverage 

There’s a reason why almost all professional chefs prefer gas over other types of cooktops: more precision and control over the heat. But while gas cooktops are efficient in this area, they are in no way perfect when it comes to heating the pot or pan evenly. But now, Thermador has created a burner that is arguably more flame savvy than any other cooktop on the market: the Thermador patented and exclusive Star® Burner . This statement piece of a cooktop creates a perimeter 56% longer than a round range burner of the same size, which means you can expect more even heating and less cold spots when cooking your favorites on this star shaped masterpiece! 

Be Safer 

Induction cooking is one smart kitchen appliance you’ll want in your cooking space, especially if you aren’t the most graceful when it comes to spills and burns. The elements on your induction cooktop uses electromagnetic technology to transfer heat directly to the magnetic cookware and not the surface of your cooktop. This means spills won’t burn into your elements and will only require a quick and painless cleanup. And because there is no actual heat emitted from the element when on, you can say goodbye to singed fingers that accidently graze the element in use! 

Customize Your Cooktop 

If you’re someone who cooks often and for a lot of people in the kitchen, having a commercial size rangetop may be more up your alley. Not only are they equipped with extremely powerful Dual-Flame burners, but they are also very versatile! Some even come with the Chrome-Infused Electric Griddle attachment for more flexibility while the BlueStar Platinum Series cooktop can be tailored to suit your personal cooking preferences for a unique customization. 

Get the Best of Both Worlds 

The design features of your cooktop also play a huge factor in your cooktop purchase. For example, a Wolf contemporary gas cooktop stuns with its flush-with-the-countertop design, cast-iron grates, and matte black porcelain finish – a very unique aesthetic! And just because it has beauty, that doesn’t mean it’s just a pretty face! This cooktop is packed with brawns: restaurant-quality sears, ability to boil large stock pots of water quickly, and more!
