Cooktops is where ILVE shines, and their latest two releases are the perfect example of their thoughtful design direction, borne from a deep understanding of consumer behaviour and habits in the kitchen.
ILVE’s VERSA cooktop cleverly combines their Brass ‘infinity’ wok burner with a four zone induction cooktop, to cater for those who regularly cook with a wok, which is the only way to perfect many Asian recipes. The burner allows the heat to reach around the side of a wok, so ingredients can be cooked at the same intensity when stir frying, which allows for restaurant quality cuisine.
Induction is now hugely popular due to the power and precision of the technology, so ILVE has integrated both cooking functions into one clever appliance. This allows the cook to swap between low simmers, quick boils of induction and high intensity heat of gas, which is bang on with current trends of getting more features in one appliance.
ILVE FUSION cooktop is the second in their latest line-up which fuses together an integrated downdraft hood and cooktop. This high powered cooktop is induction and has 4 electronic cooking zones. Made from ceramic glass, it is super stylish and will make an impressive addition to any island bench style kitchen.
The most inventive attribute of this cooktop is the powerful built-in downdraft hood. With a simple tap of the black aluminium push-in catch panel, the hood is exposed and unlike any other conventional rangehood, pulls steam and odour down and in. This cooktop brings together two major kitchen essentials into one exciting appliance.
These latest cooktops from ILVE demonstrate how design is moving forward in a more integrated fashion with multiple functions and features within a singular high performance appliance.
