Thermador Stars Its Professional Series
Thermador is now rolling out Professional Series gas cooktops and dual-fuel ranges that feature its new gas burner technology--the Star Burner. Since the Star Burner is shaped like a five-point star, the flame travels the perimeter of the burner, allowing more even heat distribution and directing heat toward the center of the pan. Thermador reports a strong initial reaction to the burner. "People are buying it without seeing it," Jennifer Capasso, senior marketing services manager, said a month before shipments began. The company has plans to take the Star Burner to gas cooktops that are not part of the Professional Series some time in 1999, probably at the Kitchen and Bath Show in April, Capasso said.
