Gaggenau, has released an extraordinary new product - the CX 480 full surface induction cooktop. Marking a new frontier for the market and yet another visionary innovation from Gaggenau, the entire surface of the cooktop is one large zoneless cooking area.
Induction cooking is fast, precise and energy efficient. With the full surface induction cooktop CX 480 Gaggenau, the leading German brand for domestic appliances, introduces a new cooktop concept to the market. The intuitive controls are operated by an extra-large TFT touch display and the full cooking surface provides unlimited flexibility, convenience and ease of cooking.
The full surface induction cooktop CX 480 allows cookware of any size and shape to be placed anywhere on its surface. Up to four pots and pans can be used simultaneously. The cooktop recognises the presence of a pot or pan automatically and heat is only generated where the the cookware is detected. Should the pot be moved, the cooktop registers its new position and carries on heating at the same temperature. Another pioneering technology is the booster function, which dramatically cuts the wait time to reach boiling as the heat of the cooking zone temporarily increases by 50%.
A large TFT touch display with a unique operating and display concept makes easy work of selecting cooking zones and heat settings with the touch of a fingertip. Promoting ease of use, a key allows users to call up operating instruction hints at any time. Another outstanding feature is the automatic recognition of the shape, size and position of cookware when it's placed on the cooktop with heat production to that spot. And if the cookware is moved, to another position on the induction surface the cooktop detects the new position.
The GN 232 Teppan Yaki plate is a special Gastronorm accessory that gives extra choice about what you want to prepare and how.
Because the plate is made from a multi-layer material comprising: stainless steel, aluminium and alloys heat spreads evenly over the entire surface. Gaggenau's consideration of low maintenance has ensured the plate is dishwasherproof.
"Under the glass ceramic surface of the full surface induction cooktop CX 480 there is a closely-spaced, staggered configuration of 48 micro-inductors. Unlike conventional large induction coils, this structure transforms the entire cooktop into one large cooking area", explains Stefan Köhl, Director of Product Management at Gaggenau.
