1. Bosch NES Cooktop with M-Twist Control. Available in September for $1,149 SRP. Manufactured in four- or five-burner models, this glass-surfaced, electric cooktop features an ultra-sleek and sophisticated style, accentuated by the unique M-Twist feature. With this feature, just one removable knob (held in place with a magnet) controls all the cooktop's functions. Selections are made via the touch-through-glass panel, while power levels are set with the M-Twist. Similar models are available with conventional controls.
