Appliance maker Sharp introduced the Insight Pro(TM) Cooktop+Microwave Drawer, a unit that combines the world's reportedly first Microwave Drawer(TM) with a glass-ceramic cooktop for a stylish and convenient cooking solution.

The introduction expands Sharp's Microwave Drawer line, currently available in Insight(TM) and Insight Pro Ranges and as a standalone unit. The 30-inch-wide, built-in ready Insight Pro Cooktop+Microwave Drawer is available in stainless steel (model KB-5121KS), black (model KB-5121KK) and white (model KB-5121KW).

The 1000-W Microwave Drawer, opens automatically with a touch of the control panel, and is large enough to hold a 9-inch by 13-inch oblong dish. Sharp says easy reach-in access eliminates the need to remove dishes from the microwave when stirring or checking food, and the large viewing window and integrated handle lend a state-of-the-art appearance.

The Cooktop+Microwave Drawer features front-mounted angled and lighted glass touch screen controls and Sharp's LCD touch screen technology, the companys says simplifies the cooking process with step-by-step instructions. Automatic cooking options for 36 food categories and defrost and reheat options for six food categories eliminate guesswork, and a selection of 16 delicious recipes can be followed step-by-step on the unit's touch screen. The Microwave Drawer has a "keep warm" function that holds foods for up to 30 minutes, creating a warming drawer inside the microwave.

The unit's electric cooktop features infinite heat and has one dual-use 6- or 9-inch ribbon-heating element, one 8-inch and two 6-inch ribbon-heating elements.

"The Microwave Drawer is the latest in Sharp's long history of cooking innovations, and when paired with a cooktop, provides tremendous functionality with a small footprint for the design-conscious consumer," said Christine Lewis, senior director of marketing for appliances, Consumer Electronics Marketing Group, Sharp Electronics Corporation. "The kitchen has become a hub for family activities and the Cooktop+Microwave Drawer offers consumers a practical and stylish design that maximizes usable counter space."

Model KB-5121KS will be available in January for a suggested retail price of U.S. $1,799.99; models KB-5121KK and KB-5121KW will be available in February for $1,689.99 and $1,749.99, respectively.
