The debate between electric and gas cooktops is endless among kitchen experts. But, for flame lovers, there are already options that fit the size of the kitchen or the needs of each one.
Whether it’s the classic multi-burner cooktop and built-in oven, or the state-of-the-art workstations that combine gas with electric panels, Gaggenau and Thermador have alternatives that will satisfy the most demanding tastes.
Classics never go out of style
The typical propane gas cooktops allow the cook to have that close encounter with the fire that everyone dreams about. Having the power to regulate the intensity of the heat of the live flame and controlling cooking times on the stove, are conclusive evidence of expertise in the kitchen.
Perhaps that is why gas cooktops will never go out of style for those who love to have this contact with fire at home. And for them, Thermador has an excellent proposition: the 36-Inch Pro Grand Commercial Depth Dual Fuel Range.
This range is much more than just a gas cooktop. As usual when it comes to Thermador, technology and quality merge to provide a state-of-the-art product. It has six burners with the characteristic Star technology of the brand, which are 56% larger than any circular burner and allow a greater distribution of heat, four of them with Extra-Low Simmer technology that offers an accuracy of 100°F for dishes that must be cooked for a long time.
Also, the 36-Inch Pro Grand can be operated from a full-color TFT display panel from which you can manipulate all the settings of both the cooktop and the oven, which in turn, can connect via Wi-Fi with the Home Connect app for notifications, diagnostics and make custom controls remotely.
The best of both worlds
But if you’re one of tho
se who refuses to give up any of the options, you don’t have to. With Gaggenau you can have the best of both worlds: an induction cooktop combined with a gas cooktop with ultra-precise temperature.
We are talking about the Vario 200 Series, which can be custom-made based on the space available and the user’s needs. Regarding the gas wok cooktop of the Vario 200 Series, it comes with a solid brass burner with multiple concentric rings up to 12″ wide, whose heat distribution can be controlled from a 9-level mechanical panel. Operated through a knob that features an illuminated ring as a residual heat indicator, with marks for specific temperatures, it provides greater safety in terms of its use and control over the stove. All this by means of the one-handed operation of the electric ignition system.
The gas wok cooktop can be added to any induction cooktop station from the same Vario 200 Series line to achieve a harmonic complex that combines the different cooking options in one single station.
No matter what side of the debate you take, the market offers these two splendid options to satisfy the most demanding tastes with the highest standards of quality and safety.
