How a cooktop panel becomes a smart design object

Who says cooktop panels have to be black?
Bright colors, large surface areas and especially connectivity within the kitchen are what consumers are after these days. SCHOTT’s latest CERAN® glass-ceramic design is the answer to these trends. It is transparent and can become an innovative surface thanks to color printing and large LED displays.

Innovation

Traditional gets a design makeover

SCHOTT has taken the traditional black cooktop design and made it transparent.
With this breakthrough, we can now offer variety, the ability to mix and match as well as customization to meet any lifestyle needs in the kitchen. Regardless of what technology is used for cooking now or in the near future not to mention the trends shaping the kitchens of tomorrow.

Achieving total design freedom

Multi-colored layers underneath meet with trendy decorative colors “on top.”
A transparent glass-ceramic layer is sandwiched in between. The result? Individual designs in warm or cool tones that provide something truly special: in stainless steel look, a matte finish or 3-D effects. In fact, there are more than 5,000 combinations waiting to be discovered.
After all, no two dream kitchens are alike!
