Imagine being able to cook directly on your kitchen countertop, without the risk of getting burnt

The world of kitchen design is constantly evolving, pushing the boundaries of innovation to create spaces that are both visually stunning and highly functional. In this pursuit, the integration of invisible burners into Dekton worktops has emerged as a game-changer. This groundbreaking combination offers a seamless and minimalist aesthetic while providing unparalleled cooking performance. In this article, we dive into the world of worktop cooking, exploring cutting-edge features and how this technology promises to transform the interior design landscape.

  1. The Art of Discreet Cooking: This technology takes kitchen design to the next level by discreetly integrating cooking elements into the overall aesthetic. Say goodbye to bulky stovetops and prominent ventilation hoods; as the burner unit is designed to blend seamlessly with cabinetry and countertops. Interior designers can now create sleek, unobstructed kitchen spaces that enhance the overall harmony and visual appeal of a home.
  2. Unleashing the Power of Induction: Induction cooking offers rapid and precise heat control, and when combined with Dekton, the cooking experience is taken to the next level. The high thermal conductivity of Dekton ensures efficient heat transfer from the cooktop to the cookware, resulting in faster cooking times. Moreover, the uniform heat distribution provided by induction technology eliminates hot spots, enabling consistent and even cooking results across the entire surface.
  3.  Seamless Integration and Easy Maintenance: One of the most fascinating aspects of this technology is its ability to seamlessly transition between transparent and opaque states. When not in use, the cooktop surface remains virtually invisible, allowing the focus to be on the beauty of the Dekton worktop. Once activated, the cooktop comes to life, showcasing its advanced functionalities. This transformative feature enables interior designers to create dynamic kitchen environments that adapt to the needs and moods of the residents. Additionally, Dekton’s non-porous nature makes it highly resistant to stains, making it easy to clean and maintain. With worktop cooking, spills and splatters are easily wiped away, leaving the Dekton surface looking flawless and pristine.
  4. Enhancing Safety and Ease of Use: Interior design is not just about aesthetics; it also focuses on functionality and user experience. This cooking technology incorporates cutting-edge safety features, such as intelligent heat sensors that prevent accidental burns and automatic shut-off mechanisms. Additionally, the intuitive control interface ensures a seamless cooking experience, making it a perfect fit for households with diverse needs and skill levels in the kitchen.
  5. Unlocking Creative Possibilities: With the discreet cooktops, interior designers are no longer limited by traditional kitchen layouts. Its versatility opens up new possibilities for innovative kitchen designs. Whether it’s integrating the cooktop into a central kitchen island or showcasing it as a stunning feature against a backsplash, this technology invites designers to explore imaginative approaches that redefine the heart of the home.

The worktop cooking technology represents a leap forward in kitchen design, offering interior designers the opportunity to create stunning, functional spaces that seamlessly blend cooking technology with aesthetics. Its ability to disappear when not in use and provide a captivating presence while active presents a new paradigm in kitchen innovation.

FAQ’S About Our Worktop Integrated Burners

Q: What is an worktop integrated burner? A: It’s a product line of  cooktops, that are designed to be integrated within the countertop, providing a seamless and hidden cooking surface.

Q: How does it work? A: The cooking system utilizes induction cooking technology, which uses magnetic fields to directly heat the cookware. The cooktop itself remains cool to the touch, and heat is generated only in the pan or pot placed on the surface.

Q: What are the advantages of this technology? A: Some advantages include its sleek and seamless design, as it is integrated within the countertop without any visible edges or knobs. It also offers precise temperature control, energy efficiency, and easy cleaning due to the smooth surface.

Q: Can any type of cookware be used with the burners? A: This technology requires the use of compatible cookware. Induction cooktops work with ferromagnetic materials, such as cast iron or stainless steel. Non-magnetic cookware, such as aluminum or copper, will not work unless they have a magnetic base.

Q: Is it easy to install? A: Installing the cooktop typically requires professional installation. The process may involve cutting the countertop to fit the cooktop, ensuring proper electrical connections, and potentially making adjustments to the kitchen cabinetry.

Q: Can the burners be integrated in any worktop? A: No. It’s important to ensure that the countertop is suitable for this type of cooktop. The countertop material must be Dekton in 12mm thickness, which is compatible with the installation process, as there should be enough space for proper ventilation and electrical connections. Induction cooktops generate intense heat in the cookware through electromagnetic induction. Dekton contains no plastic or resin(unlike quartz and most granites) and can withstand high heat without warping or cracking, ensuring the durability and longevity of the countertop.

Q: Is this technology more expensive than traditional cooktops? A: The cooktops can vary in price depending on the number of units per burner(you have the option of two, three, four and five burners) but they generally tend to be more expensive than traditional gas or electric cooktops due to the advanced technology and sleek design.
