Thermador 48" Professional Series Rangetop with Grill or Griddle Option
When you select a Thermador rangetop, you know that you're getting top-notch, trusted professional grade construction and performance. Exclusive to Thermador are their patented Star Burners. The exclusive, sealed 3-in-1 Star Burner's unique five-point design offers a reduced cold spot, faster time to boil and the ExtraLow feature. The coverage area allows for more ports and more flame distribution than a round burner. The ExtraLow feature is perfect for simmering sauces or delicate confections. It cycles on and off to maintain temperatures as low as 100°F; another exclusive trait of Thermador's excellent cooking appliances. Don't think that these ExtraLow burners can't handle tough jobs. These same burners are capable of boosting up from the ExtraLow setting to a powerful 18,000-BTU level which is great for boiling. And if that's not enough, these burners reach boiling point point over 50% faster than leading competitors. After all of this fantastic cooking, if you accidentally made a small spill, clean-up is hassle-free. The grates and grill/griddle lift off easily, and the porcelain maintop and teardrop emboss under the burners will require just the simple swipe of a damp cloth.

- A minimum of 2 3/4" clearance is required between the bottom of the rangetop and the top of the warming drawer.
- A backguard must be installed when there is less than a 12" horizontal clearance between combustible materials and the back edge of the rangetop.
- The Thermador Low Backguard must be ordered separately and installed at the rear of the rangetop.

Natural Gas or LP
- Thermador Professional Rangetops are shipped by the factory to operate on natural gas.
- They must be converted for use with propane.
- Verify the type of gas being used at the installation site matches the type of gas used by the appliance.
- If the location/job site requires conversion from natural gas to propane (LP), order PALPKITHC.
- Field conversion must be done by qualified service personnel only.
- We strongly recommend that a Thermador Professional Wall or Island Hood or Custom Insert be installed with all Thermador Professional Rangetops.
- Downdraft ventilation should not be used.
- Do not install a microwave-hood combination above the rangetop, as these types of units do not provide the proper ventilation and are not suitable for use with Thermador Professional Rangetops.
