I promised I would share my favorite Thermador Appliance!
Did you guess which one it would be?
When I visited the Thermador Test Kitchen in Irvine, California as guest of Thermador and Traditional Home Magazine in honor of their Great Kitchens Getaway Online issue, I had the privilege of cooking on Thermador's 36" Masterpiece Freedom Induction Cooktop. This might look like ceran cooktops that were popular in the 80's, but let me tell you, it's no where near the same appliance for many reasons. To equate the two would be like trying to compare a Rolls Royce to a Volkswagen.
Here are the features that set this appliance apart from the competition:
1. Can place up to four pots or pans anywhere on the cooktop surface
and it creates a burner for it. Note I said anywhere, it will find the pot!
2. It has 48 induction elements that deliver more than 63% usable cooking
surface in any configuration!
3. If you pick a pot up to move it over to make room for another pot, it will transfer the programmed settings to the new position without you lifting a finger.
4. Love and adore the touchscreen! So easy to use! To set the temp you simply touch the screen and scroll to the setting you want. No more messy knobs to clean! Just wipe off the panel if your hands are greasy from cooking.
5. It's so fast!!!! Induction cooktops heat 50% faster than traditional gas cooktops.
6. With 4,6000 W PowerBoost, this cooktop allows you to boil water faster than any other cooking technology.
Anti-overflow system - If any liquid over flows there is a feature that shuts off the element and sounds an alarm to let you know your pot is boiling over!
. Child Safety Lock- so little hands cannot turn the cooktop on!
Pan Recognition - Cooktop will only turn on if a pan is placed on the cooktop. Small objects will not allow the cook top to turn on.
In the test kitchen, Nadia and I seared tuna on this cooktop and let me just tell you, it got the job done perfectly! Just a few minutes after turning the appliance off, the heat dissipated. That is an especially nice feature if you don't like your kitchen to get hot. Also, nice if you are limited with countertop space because it can become countertop when you aren't cooking.

Why I say the Thermador Freedom Induction Cooktop is best for messy cooks or people who don't like their kitchens to get dirty from cooking? No more splatter to clean with this cooktop! Why you say? You can actually cover the cooktop with paper towels,then put your pans on the paper towel covered top to cook. The paper towels won't catch on fire because the pan is the heat inducer. After cooking, simply remove the paper towels and voila you have a clean cooktop!
Now do you see why I love this cooktop?
Not to mention ....it's sleek and sexy!
