chose it for its purity of design, assiduous attention to detail, or for both of these reasons—you'll find that your Profile
cooktop's superior blend of form and function will delight you for years to come.
This cooktop contains several new features such as pan detection and pan sizing. The touch controls give you precise
control of the surface units. You can quickly switch between a steady low heat and full power or any setting in between.

control or cooktop surface because
it can scratch the glass. The glass is
scratch-resistant, not scratchproof.
About the radiant surface units...
