BENTON HARBOR, Mich., March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury appliance maker Jenn-Air has expanded its collection of cooktops to include new 36-inch and 30-inch 5-burner models making their debut at this week's Architectural Digest Home Design Show. Together with a recently introduced 6-burner model, these newest cooktops are designed for those who care equally about aesthetics and performance, according to Juliet Johnson, brand experience manager for Jenn-Air.
The low, near-flush profile of both models create a sleek, built-in appearance that transitions from cooktop to countertop with an exceedingly low profile of only 3 millimeters – less than the thickness of two pennies.
The newest 36-inch 5-burner gas model features a 19,000 BTU dual-stacked PowerBurner that provides power for high-heat cooking techniques, while a 6,000 BTU burner reduces to as low as 800 BTUs, ideal for simmering sauces at just below boiling. Aided by a wide melt cap, which shields and diffuses the flame, this lower powered burner is perfect for melting delicate items like chocolate or butter. The PowerBurner, located at the center of the cooktop, features two levels of flames, the lower in the form of an elegant ring encircling the burner.
"These new cooktops provide a high-level of precision and flexibility for cooking and entertaining," says Johnson. "And the combination of attention to detail and near-flush design makes them both elegant and unobtrusive."
The newest 5-burner models will be available in sleek Euro-Style stainless with Pro-Style® barrel knobs. All models are crafted using superior stainless and die-cast materials, minimal welding and hand polishing for a highly refined fit, feel and finish.
Other updated cooktop offerings from Jenn-Air include electric and gas downdraft cooktops with newly-designed knobs, and a gas downdraft model with an advanced, invisible Durafinish™ coating designed to resist staining and yellowing and extend the cooktop's like-new appearance.
Since the introduction of the first self-ventilated cooktop in 1961 and downdraft ventilated range in 1965, Jenn-Air brand has consistently grown its reputation as a technology and design innovator. Its selection of style options includes two distinct stainless steel collections and a cutting-edge Floating Glass finish in black or white. From downdraft cooktops, wall ovens and professional style ranges to dishwashers, refrigerators and such entertaining essentials as warming drawers, built-in ice machines and wine cellars, Jenn-Air brand offers a complete line of major kitchen appliances.
