The latest induction cooktops from Jenn-Air brand offer a level of design and performance that may compel more American home cooks to consider this cooking technology alternative. In addition to sleek, understated design, these luxury cooktops offer the most powerful induction element available for the home kitchen, along with other high-performance features not found in restaurant models.
The cooktops are currently available in 30- and 36-inch models in black or black with a stainless trim. The 36-inch models feature five induction elements, including the industry’s most powerful 12-inch/9-inch Dual Zone Induction Element with a maximum output of 5,000 watts and the flexibility of two element sizes in one position. A Sensor Boil feature automatically brings water to a boil with the touch of a button and lets the cook know when the water reaches the boiling point, adjusting the power level to reduce the possibility of boiling over.
Two bridge elements on the 36-inch models and a one bridge element on the 30-inch models connect two elements, creating one large cooking surface that can accommodate a griddle, oblong or larger rectangular pans. All elements feature timers along with hot surface indicators and a control lockout for added safety.
Additional features include 13 heat levels to maximize control with specific settings for simmer, melt and Keep Warm™.
