The kitchen has slowly moved from a space reserved for simply cooking and preparing food, to becoming the entertainment hub of the home, and appliances used for cooking have now become a statement on their own.
PITT Cooking, the 2016 Canstar Blue’s Innovation Award Winner is a cooking concept made in Holland, where separate gas burners are directly integrated into the countertop for an integrated look. PITT might just put an end to the ongoing ‘electric vs. gas cooktop’ debate. Traditional gas cooktops are notoriously unattractive and difficult to clean, making them a less appealing option for many households.
The number of burners and configuration desired depends entirely on the homeowners' personal cooking style. A significant advantage of the PITT cooking system is the generous layout of the burners: in contrast to traditional stovetops, it is possible to use all burners at the same time, even when using large saucepans. The PITT concept gives households nearly unprecedented control over their kitchen design.
With all the technical parts hidden below the countertop, it enables burners to be placed further apart. The powerful, professional burners (30% more than traditional models) offer a professional cooking result in clients’ kitchens.
Suitable countertop materials are composite, granite, concrete, terrazzo, glass, ceramic, Solid Surface, Green Core, Tope Core and stainless-steel worktops. The PITT cooking system cannot be integrated into solid wood worktops or worktops with an HPL top layer.
The PITT burners have been tested extensively and deemed safe having received the official KIWA Gastec Certification. The temperature stays low and there is minimal heat transfer which means the burners do not affect the countertop. All burners consist of a safety valve.
