You Don’t Have to Push My Buttons

FrigProInd2Recently product info came across my desk that got me pretty psyched that there is another option for induction drop-in cooktops about to hit the market this fall. When these pieces hit the market they will be one of the few manufacturers to offer one very important feature in the drop-in induction cooktop category….knob controls. If you’ve shied away from tap and smooth touch controls in an induction cooktop, you might want to keep reading.FrigProLogo1

Frigidaire Professional series is coming out in the 3rd quarter of this year with their 30″ and 36″ knob controlled induction cooktop. The MSRP is $1949 on the 30″ and $1999 on the 36″ option, which is significantly lower than Viking and Gaggenau, but just a little lower than Big Chill (other brands offering knob controls for a drop-in, built-in induction cooktop).

The 36″ model boasts one 10″ induction element with a min/max wattage of 2500W/3800W, one 8″ induction element of 2300W/3200W, two 7″ of 1800W/2600W, and one 6″ of 1450W/2000W. When using the knob the control knob will allow you to adjust between high and low, as well as increments of .5 between 1.5 and 9. The screen above the knob will display the power level.

Having options on the market for a drop-in induction cooktop will open up this type of cooking to clients that are unable to use touch controls and/or may be looking for a more budget friendly choice with design elements that pair up well with the whole Frigidaire Professional kitchen suite.
