THERMADOR Expands The Limits On Cooktops!

During Design and Construction week in Las Vegas on January 20th, Thermador gave our #BlogTourVegas group a personal tour lead by Zach Elkin, Director of Brand Marketing. The brand offered a preview of its new Professional Grill, which will be featured on the Professional Rangetops, Pro Harmony® and Pro Grand® Ranges, along with a new trimless design option for the Freedom Induction Cooktop

This surface cooking feature boasts industry-leading design, featuring ceramic briquettes and grill grates that fully cover the heating elements to offer exceptional grilling performance and genuine smoky flavor. The Professional Grill features a wide variety of low to high temperature control for better taste, texture and quality – something not commonly offered on other indoor grilling products:

  • Two independently controlled heating elements that empower home cooks to place foods such as vegetables on one half of the grill at a lower setting, and meats or fish on the other half at a higher heat setting.

  • Intelligently designed grates that are placed in direct contact with the heating elements to produce fast preheat and excellent searing.

  • During each use, the ceramic briquettes collect juices that drip down from the grill plates to provide genuine smoke flavor, with excess drippings collected in a grease tray underneath.

  • The grill can easily be disassembled, with removable grill grates that are dishwasher safe and hinged heating elements that fold up so the dishwasher-safe ceramic briquettes can be removed for easy cleaning of the grease tray – a truly exceptional cleaning feature that is unmatched in the industry.

The Professional Grill is designed as an alternative to the existing Thermador electric grill and griddle plate currently featured on the Professional Rangetops, Pro Harmony and Pro Grand ranges. With its introduction, cooks now have more choices than ever when selecting their ideal cooking surface.

The first full-surface induction appliance with the flexibility of intelligently recognizing cookware size, shape and position to deliver heat without boundaries, allowing cooks to use pots and pans of any shape and size and place them anywhere on the surface. The cooktop boasts all the benefits of traditional induction technology, including instantaneous and precise temperature control, and also offers the PowerBoost™ feature that boils water faster than any other technology in its class. Maintaining a spotless surface is also effortless with the cooktop, as spills and boil-overs will not scorch onto the surface, and can be wiped off with just a damp cloth.  With more than 30 international patents, the Thermador Freedom Induction Cooktop is built with 48 individual 3-inch induction heating elements below the surface of the appliance. This translates to a 63-percent more effective cooking area on the surface by eliminating the conventional standard of predefined elements. Additional product highlights include:

  • A 6.5-inch, full-color touchscreen display that recognizes pot shape, size, and controls power setting and cooking time

  • Surface area to accommodate a 21-inch x 13-inch pan with the largest cooking surface in the industry

  • A range of 4,600-watt maximum power output with Boost feature and 15-watt minimum power output.

“Induction cooking continues to grow in popularity for many reasons, including its responsiveness and performance. We are proud that our Freedom Induction Cooktop is the most revolutionary of the induction cooktops on the market,” said Zach Elkin, director of brand marketing. “By adding a second design option, we are giving cooks more flexibility to select the style of this appliance that best fits their kitchen design preferences.”
Cheers to you Zach, for a wonderful lunch and making new friends! It was really great to go beyond the brand! Nothing beats making in real life and time connections!
