Thermador's Silver-Mirrored Induction Cooktop and Drawer Hood each have been selected by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design as recipients of Good Design Awards, which honors commitment to innovation and superior design.
The induction cooktop also offers a set of safety features, including an anti-overflow system that sounds an alarm and shuts off the unit if liquids boil over, preventing fire/burn hazards or disruptive messes; an automatic stop system that turns off the elements if they are inadvertently left on and the controls are untouched for long periods; a residual heat indicator that warns if an element may be warm to the touch; an anti-overheating sensor that shuts the unit off if the surface reaches more than 300° Celsius; and a child lock to prevent unintended use. Additionally, a cookware detection system alerts users if there is no pan on the element or if it is not made of suitable material, while an alarm switches the cooktop off if there is a metal object, like a small kitchen utensil, placed on the cooking surface.
Thermador's chimney-style Drawer Hood has a squared canopy that smoothly slides out and extends up to an extra 12 inches, for 45% more coverage of the cooking area. The doubling of the filter area ensures maximum and efficient extraction of odors and grease at up to 600 CFM (cubic feet of evacuated air per minute). It also gives consumers greater flexibility and control over their ventilation needs.
