The need for safer cooking methods for the disabled and visually impaired is critical. The fact that every seven minutes someone in America will become blind or visually impaired is further evidence of this need. To provide the potential for a safer cooking experience for the nearly 10 million blind or visually impaired individuals in the United States, Diva de Provence is now introducing a tactile marking kit for its induction cooktops.

The tactile marking kit can be used with the Diva Induction cooktop and include your choice of either raised letters or Braille symbols as well as 3M Bumpons™ to help indicate the burners. Incorporating the tactile markings on the cooktop is easy. They are simply placed under the controls, which are activated effortlessly when a finger is slid in an upward motion over the control.

Available in three models (DDP-2, DDP-4 and DDP-5), Diva Induction cooktops utilize electromagnetic energy to heat only the cookware. The cooking surface remains cool to the touch, providing the safest cooking surface on the market and virtually eliminating the danger of burns. Additionally, Diva Induction cooktops deliver over 25,000 BTU's, making it the fastest, most precise and energy-efficient cooking method available.
