Exhibiting at the IFA tradeshow in Berlin this week, Miele unveiled the simple-to-operate but highly versatile FlexTouch induction hob (cooktop).

The IFA trade show took place Aug. 31 through Sep. 5, 2012.

Miele designed the 90 cm wide FlexTouch to be adaptive to the personal preferences and cooking habits of users. An intuitive user interface allows pots and pans to be placed anywhere on the ceramic cooking surface - 36 individual induction coils combine to form power zones. The cooktop recognizes the size and position of pots and pans automatically and shows their position in the display.

MultiMode covers most everyday needs: pots and pans can be arranged anywhere on the ceramic cooktop surface. Up to five pans can be used simultaneously, a feature that is deemed exclusive to Miele in the German market.

Solo Mode is designed for special occasions such as family gatherings - all induction coils under the cooking surface are united to form a single large zone. This makes it practical for cooking with several large pans at the same time.

Trio Mode allows cooks to work with several different temperature ranges. For example: while meat is kept warm on the far right, the central zone serves to simmer vegetables and on the left water for pasta is brought to a rolling boil.

The cooktops will be on sale at retail at the end of October 2012.
