Italian Manufacturer Bertazzoni Unveils Ingenious Modular Cooktop


You have to give it up to the Italians; they know design. Here’s an example of what I mean. Bertazzoni—a 130-year-old company that manufactures ranges, ovens, cooktops and ventilation systems—recently unveiled a built-in segmented cooktop you can configure with different combinations of gas burners, griddle, and two-zone induction cooking in three 12 inch segments. Each cooktop is factory assembled so the segments come in a seamless cooktop with a single cut-out for easy installation. The induction option is particularly cool. In case you’re not aware, induction cooking uses an oscillating magnetic field that induces an electric current in a pot. The technology produces resistive heating to cook food. Induction cooktops and ranges are pricey, but the Bertazzoni units allow consumers an entry point that is much cheaper. Cooktops come in 30- and 36-inch sizes.
