Munich, Germany. Scratches on a car are painful. So are scratches on a
glass-ceramic cooktop, especially if its jet-black colour and gleaming
surface are among the highlights in an open kitchen. Even if the “hearth”
at the heart of the kitchen is in daily use, there’s no reason to see
scratches. With GlassProtect, Bosch presents the first induction cooktop
with a special coating developed by their partner Schott that’s especially
resistant to unsightly scratches caused by sand or sponges.
The fight against scratches
In many households, abrasive sponges are used to remove dried-on food
from the cooktop. They generally do the job but can also leave behind
unsightly traces. Ugly scratches can also be caused by fine grains of sand,
which are all around us and can impact the cooktop when they come into
contact with cleaning utensils or when pots and pans are shifted across
the surface. In addition, all types of metal objects pose a threat to the
flawless surface of every glass-ceramic cooktop. Not even GlassProtect
can prevent all scratches, but it can prevent most of them. The special
coating developed by the glass manufacturer Schott is approximately 95
percent more resistant to scratches caused by sand and about 70 percent
more resistant to scratches caused by abrasive sponges than
conventional glass-ceramic cooktops with no special coating.
Two impeccable versions
Bosch is the first major home appliance manufacturer to offer an
induction cooktop with a special coating. The appliance with the
GlassProtect surface is being presented as part of the elegant accent line
carbon black product family in two versions: one model with the timeless
ComfortProfile and one flush-mounted model for seamless installation
into the countertop. Both models are 80 centimetres wide and have a
multi-purpose FlexInduction zone and three standard cooking zones.
DirectSelect Premium operation epitomizes modern operating standards.
And with the Home Connect app, the extractor hood can be conveniently
controlled via the cooktop, so there’s no more going back and forth while
cooking. And speaking of cooking: The PerfectFry frying sensor ensures
healthy frying thanks to its reliable temperature control that preserves
vitamins and is gentle on cookware.
Perfect results, lasting aesthetics
The cooktop with the GlassProtect surface from Bosch is the ideal
inspiration for a new love of cooking and helps bring perfect results to
the table on a daily basis. It’s also recommended for all kitchen aesthetes
who don’t want to compromise on their cooktop. The high gloss of the
easy-to-clean surface can quickly be restored after each use and will
continue to look practically brand new for years to come.
