DESCRIPTION
A kitchen is worth sharing. In your kitchen, everyone is part of the cooking process. Whether they're offering an idea to stir things up or the first to volunteer a taste test, your friends and family are always invited to join you. That's why you take special care in choosing appliances that help shape the heart of your home. KitchenAid appliances showcase thoughtful design elements and responsive performance features that blend seamlessly to create a unique cooking experience.

The new Architect Series II suite introduces consistent design features across the line such as redesigned handles that are easier to grip, soft blue lighting and their SatinGlide System. These easy-to-use features extend seamlessly from the refrigerator to the oven to the dishwasher creating a suite of appliances that are designed to work together.

What is Induction Cooking
Induction cooking is an advanced cooking technology that uses electromagnetic energy to generate instant heat to the cookware. This provides faster heating times while using less energy that a conventional cooktop. With induction, the ceramic-glass surface stays cooler because heat is transferred directly to the cookware - not through the cooktop surface. Induction technology provides immediate response so heat can be increased or decreased quickly.

The Proof is in the Performance. KitchenAid induction cooktops are so responsive that they can quickly go from boil to simmer. Induction technology provides a more time and engery-efficient cooking method than gas or electronic cooktops. Induction technology helps make the ceramic-glass surface easy to clean - spills don't burn onto the cooktop. Sleek, integrated touch-activated electronic controls offer nine heat-level settings from keep warm to performance boost.
FEATURES
° Induction technology offers incredible speed, precise control, and enhanced energy efficiency
° 9 heat-level settings provide various levels of heat to achieve precise temperatures for optimal cooking results
