Seamless Kitchen Cooktop Systems

The Gaggenau 'Flex' Induction Cooktop is Sleek

— October 4, 2022 — Art & Design
The Gaggenau 'Flex' induction cooktop is a seamless kitchen appliance system built with functionality and style in mind to support the modern chef. The cooktop is engineered with an all-in-one design that incorporates the induction cooktop itself with two cooking zones, which can be unified for a seamless functionality. The center area on the cooktop is accented by a ventilation grid to capture exhaust during cooking, which will activate automatically to save energy and also reduce noise.

The Gaggenau 'Flex' induction cooktop is accented with black stainless steel knobs that light up around the base with an orange ring to communicate that it's in use. This also acts as a branding aesthetic for Gaggenau and provides a touch of digital intrigue for consumers to admire.
