The KBIS 2012, the industry’s top kitchen and bath show with more than 550 exhibitors, opened its doors on April 27 2012. During the show’s week, Bertazzoni which was the oldest family owned manufacturer at the show, won the prestigious “Best of Show Award” for one of the company’s newest products: the segmented cooktop. The award is given to the product that exhibits the best in functionality, quality/durability, flexibility, aesthetics/style, and innovation.
The Bertazzoni Segmented Cooktop combines the power of gas, electric griddle, and induction cooking in one product platform to transform surface cooking for good. The low profile design fits the standard cut-out for a 36” cooktop and each cooking surface is designed with three 12” segments per fuel type.
Nicola Bertazzoni, Vice president of sales and sixth generation family executive for Bertazzoni, was there to accept the award: “When we set out to create the Segmented Cooktop we recognized that people are more and more aware of the advantages of induction, gas, and griddle cooking surfaces and would love to be able to combine them without having to choose just one.”
Bertazzoni’s segemented cooktop is part of the much wider Built-in line which was launched in Fall 2011. This line of products was designed to offer homeowners unparalleled style and performance
