Mainz (Germany), July 9, 2013 – The international technology group SCHOTT is the only manufacturer of glass ceramic cooktops to offer three different white cooktop panels from standard production. With its newly available product variations CERAN ARCTICFIRE® snowy and CERAN ARCTICFIRE® icy, the innovator from Germany has pulled off a real coup. Now, numerous design options are possible. In addition, all types of heating systems from radiant to gas to induction can be used.

The CERAN ARCTICFIRE® snowy cooktop panel represents a special design version, because its color shade is both a cold and shiny white at the same time and this gives the product a unique selling point. No other manufacturer is currently able to offer as pure a shade of white, and this cooktop panel can be used with all types of heating systems.

The product variation CERAN ARCTICFIRE® icy features just a touch of grey, is translucent and has a shiny surface. It can be used with the red 7-segment displays that are ideal for use in induction cooktops that feature display optics.

White cooktop panels CERAN ARCTICFIRE® in their classic variety have been on the market for more than ten years. They are found mainly in cooking appliances that are based on radiant heating elements. “White in all of its many nuances is clearly a fashionable color. We see a trend towards white kitchens that expresses clarity and objectivity and yet these white kitchens have a modern and luxurious look,” notes Stefan-Marc Schmidt, Head of Sales and Marketing for CERAN®.

The upper surface of all three white cooktop panels can be printed with designs using the popular decorative colors white, grey, brown, and black. Whether it’s the high-contrast black-and-white versions, white-on-white or softer color shades, this set of three white cooktop panels with decorative color accents clearly offers a wide range of design possibilities.
