Individuality also plays a major role in the new hobs from Küppersbusch. The company will be presenting a large number of new hobs – in classic black, in discreet grey and in pure white – at this year's LivingKitchen in Cologne. What is more, all new hobs can now be fitted flush-mounted. There are also versions with stainless steel frames or bevelled edges.
Controls for Küppersbusch hobs are simple and intuitive to operate. The controls for selected hobs in the Profession+ series are also displayed in white to match the new ovens and compact appliances. Depending on the series, customers can choose between glideControl, selectControl and dialControl. The size of the cooking zone can be adjusted to meet requirements for hobs with full-surface induction. Small pots and pans use the conventional cooking zones, while each of the cooking zones at the front and the one behind it – or all four cooking zones – can be combined to form one big area for larger pots or roasting pans.
A major safety feature is provided by the integrated stop-and-go button. With this button there are no unpleasant surprises when the doorbell or the telephone rings unexpectedly. All it takes is a light touch on the stop-and-go button and all of the activated cooking zones will be cut off at the setting that has been made. On return, all it takes is a press of the button again to restart the process. All cooking hobs are fitted with a child safety lock. When this is activated, it is not possible to switch on the hob or turn up the setting.
Hobs with integrated cooktop extractor
Küppersbusch also offers three hobs with integrated cooktop extractor in its range: the EKID 9940.0 induction hob, winner of the German Design Award, the KMI 8500.0 induction cooktop extractor from the Premium+ series, and the new VKM 1800.0 for the VarioLine modular system, where high-end individual elements can be assembled to form an individual cooking and work area.
For all those who prefer to cook with gas, Küppersbusch also offers a wide range of gas hobs. Customers can choose from a wide selection ranging from the award-winning GMS 9751.0 model to the entry-level gas hob.
The controls for the KI 9810.0 induction hob are displayed in white to match the new ovens and compact appliances from Küppersbusch .
The discreet grey of the KI8800.0 perfectly matches the light work surfaces and the new “Shade of Grey” series.
