Thermador Freedom induction cooktop

Thermador introduces its latest kitchen advancement that will again enable the culinary enthusiast to cook beyond convention – the Thermador Freedom induction cooktop. The new Freedom cooktop is the first full-surface induction appliance with the flexibility of a natural-mapping user interface that intelligently recognizes cookware size, shape and position to deliver heat without boundaries.

Thermador induction cooktop takes induction cooking to the next level by answering two questions,
– what if you could place cookware anywhere on the cooktop?
– what if you can use cookware of any size and shape on the cooktop
The Freedom induction cooktop offers all of the benefits of traditional induction technology – instantaneous and precise temperature control, making it as responsive as gas, safer cooking as the surface stays cool to the touch, and easier cleaning with its smooth and flush surface. At the same time, the new Thermador cooktop enables home cooks to place their cookware anywhere on the cooking surface, including specially shaped cookware such as griddles and oval-shaped pans.
The natural-mapping user interface of the Thermador cooktop empowers home cooks to move their cookware around during the cooking process, which is especially helpful as they add and remove different dishes during meal preparation Рsuch as sauces, boiling water, and saut̩ing Рso there are no limits on where to place the cookware.
With more than 30 international patents, the Thermador Freedom induction cooktop is built with 48 individual 3″ induction heating elements below the surface of the appliance. This translates to a 63% more effective cooking area on the surface by eliminating the conventional standard of predefined elements. Additional product highlights include,
– a 6.5″ full-color touchscreen display that recognizes pot shape, size, and controls power setting and cooking time
– surface area to accommodate a 21″ x 13″ pan with the largest cooking surface in the industry
– a range of 4.6 kW maximum power output with Boost feature and 15 watt minimum power output
The Thermador Freedom induction cooktop surface is made from transparent ceramic glass, which allows for the integration of the color touchscreen. In additional to the touchscreen interface showing the position of all cookware on the cooking surface, the touchscreen also performs live updates as cookware is moved to a different position, giving the home cook an intuitive cooking experience. Available July 2012 with a MSRP of $4,950. Thermador.
