Designed for true cooking enthusiasts, the new KitchenAid line of 6 professionally inspired gas cooktops offers a new level of premium aesthetics and performance. The cooktops are based on almost 100 years of iconic design, innovation and craftsmanship, KitchenAid is known for.
Designed to meet a wide range of cooking needs, these latest KitchenAid gas cooktops are equipped with a variety of burners ranging from 5,000 to 20,000 BTUs. Depending on the model, all-purpose Multiflame or Professional Dual Ring burners allow cooks to go from a boil to a simmer without changing burners. For more control of the flame at the lowest setting, a diffuser plate incorporated into an Even-Heat Simmer Burner allows for more precise simmering and melting of sauces, butter, chocolate and other delicate ingredients.
To help protect the cooktops from spills and stains that may occur with high-temperature cooking, and to ensure they will look clean and bright longer, the new models feature CookShield, a permanent finish that makes it easy to wipe surfaces clean without harsh chemicals.
The new KitchenAid gas cooktops, available in 30″ and 36″ models, combine professional-style design with a number of sleek and practical touches more suitable for the home. Each features Multi-Finish Knobs with a unique barrel design for precise dialing, a non-slip brushed metal surface, sleek chrome highlights, and an easy-to-clean satin texture. In certain models, the knobs incorporate LED back lighting that glows elegantly from the bezel, both for visual effect and to indicate when the cooktop is turned on.
All models feature full width cast iron grates, electronic ignition and LP conversion kits for use with LP gas. Two models offer a removable, non-stick griddle. Prices are from $1,100 to $1,900. KitchenAid.
