Gaggenau launches the Essential induction hob for Cosentino Dekton® surfaces

Cosentino, a world leader in the production of sustainable surfaces for architecture and design, and Gaggenau, the luxury brand of professional-quality domestic appliances, are launching the innovative Essential induction hob set commercially from this May in Europe, Turkey and the Middle East, which will also arrive in Australia and New Zealand from September. After several years of research and collaboration between the R&D teams of both firms, this invisible cooktop integrated in the ultra-compact, carbon-neutral Dekton® surfaces is now available on the market.

A hob and worktop that are perfectly combined in a single unit, resulting in an architectural and highly designed piece. The result is a uniform surface without barriers, frames or gaps. The high performance and properties of Dekton®, in its 12mm thickness, together with the proven technology and superior performance of Gaggenau, brought to one point, one surface, one control, and nothing else. A piece that integrates in perfect harmony in any environment to enjoy a high quality experience in the kitchen with the maximum freedom to explore and experiment.

Given the relevance of this innovation, the Essential hob together with a spectacular Dekton® Domoos worktop presided over the installation that Gaggenau presented a few weeks ago at Villa Necchi, as part of Milan Design Week. Under the concept “The elevation of Gravity”, the firm presented a monumental experience in which the invisible force of gravity was made tangible through Gaggenau’s upcoming launches. In this sense, the Essential induction embodied the concept of gravity, creating a magnetic force to redefine modern living and design through the art of reduction.

Available for purchase from authorised Gaggenau dealers, this solution is highly versatile, covering any design idea thanks to the wide range of Dekton® surface colours and finishes, complemented by Gaggenau’s high-precision stainless steel or black control knobs. Two different sizes of high-performance induction modules can be combined under the surface. The standard 21 cm module accommodates pots and pans between 10 and 21 cm in diameter, while the large 28 cm module is designed for pans between 15 and 28 cm in diameter.

The induction modules are activated via improved surface protectors that are magnetically connected to the cookware. Last but not least is a guide light. A subtle light that links the control unit to the cooking zone that is switched on. It not only serves as an indicator for the positioning of the cookware, but also, by varying its intensity, colour and status, allows the user to recognise whether the module is switched on or whether there is residual heat. When it is not being used, it automatically switches off and the surface becomes a free space for preparing, serving or eating directly, making the room a place to enjoy family or social life.

Apart from the markets mentioned above, availability may be extended to other regions in the future as demand evolves.
