SCHOTT engineers revolutionized cooking in 1971 with a black glass-ceramic: CERAN®. Today, the rock star sets new standards for cooking in the future.
Make cooking smarter and more intuitive is the dream of many appliance designers. CERAN EXCITE® makes these dreams come true – and thereby wins the world-renowned iF Gold Award 2019.
The product portfolio based on special materials and coatings allow for LED light sources mounted under the cooktop to shine through particularly clearly and brightly. By enabling colored lighting in both the cooktop’s control and cooking zone, induction cooking becomes more intuitive. For the first time, it is possible to integrate lighting concepts in the cooking zone – which means in areas that heat up while cooking.
“With CERAN EXCITE®, we are taking yet another step further into a new era of cooking, which offers solutions with visual support for more safety, intuitive control and connectivity”, explains Dr. Jörn Besinger, Head of Product Management and New Business Development for CERAN® at SCHOTT. The jury states: These light solutions for cooktop-panels are a groundbreaking innovation. The intensity of the colors and size of the lighting are a stylish benefit for cooktop areas and offer enhanced usability and functionality. A highlight of the product is the bright white light in the control panel.”
