Each year, car manufacturers introduce new models of cars featuring updated body styles, additional gadgets such as GPS, snazzy conveniences such as push button start, and perhaps a few alterations to improve safety or the smoothness of the ride. Car companies are in a constant competition to provide the most luxurious, most innovative, most stylish vehicles because they know that beyond the basic functionality of their product lie a slew of emotional considerations.

The continual updates have us lusting after new models even if we have a perfectly functional vehicle sitting in the garage. It’s in our nature to want the latest and greatest, the most powerful, the fastest, the most technologically advanced, and perhaps it’s even in our nature to occasionally desire to inspire envy in those around us.

It’s a similar story in the kitchen. The top appliance brands continue to compete to provide the most powerful, the fastest, the most superior kitchen appliances. Thermador is one brand that’s pushing the envelope in the kitchen appliance world. The SGSX365FS Thermador 36” gas cooktop is the result of years of improvements and updates.

Thermador Masterpiece Cooktop
The center burner delivers 18,000 BTUs of heat, perfect for when you need to bring water to a boil quickly.

For example, the Thermador Masterpiece Cooktop is the fourth generation of Thermador cooktops to feature unique star-shaped burners. While visually distinctive, the five points on these burners ensure more even and more dispersed flame distribution over a greater area than traditional round burners.

Additionally, the sealed burners provide a large range of heat settings from the powerful 18,000 BTU center-mounted burner that gets water boiling faster and is ideal for stir-fry or other high-heat cooking methods to the low simmer of just 200 BTUs achievable on the four other star-shaped burners. (One BTU heats one pound of water by about 1°F.)

Illuminated Control Knobs
Control knobs illuminate when burners are on, so you always know what is going on underneath your cookware.

Thermador is able to achieve this controlled, slow simmer because of its ExtraLow burner design that holds the pot a little further from the flame for added control. The burner automatically cycles on and off to ensure a precise temperature as you cook delicate sauces or simply keep food warm until dinner time. At the same time, the continuous grate allows you to slide pots and pans from one burner to another for quick heat changes without requiring you to lift heavy pots of hot food or boiling water.

For a little extra convenience and added pizzazz, the SGSX365FS Thermador stainless steel cooktop has a glass and stainless steel control panel with die cast metal control knobs that illuminate to inform you when a burner is on a regular or ExtraLow setting. The Thermador 36” cooktop has a distinctive design that matches the other appliances in Thermador’s Masterpiece line.

When you take home your Thermador gas cooktop, you’ll be taking home an advanced appliance that goes beyond mere function to address your innate desire for new, distinguished and advanced.
