I want that cooktop

Amazing Cooktop Design | KitchAnn Style

Luna Cooktop Fisher & Paykel debuted their Luna Project last year at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Chicago.

The Luna  cooktop features burners that serve as the cooking grate and retract when not in use via a patented lifting mechanism leaving a smooth surface.

The Luna has three burners with spark-less ignition and instantaneous flame delivered by the patented Aero burners offering precise linear flame control and glow ignition to ensure the desired heat level is achieved. The 36″ x 16″ cooktop boasts a minimalist style.  Fisher & Paykel  states the cooktop has ergonomic benefits too since the single row of burners eliminates the need to reach over a burner in the front to get to the back burner.  Their own consumer research reveuals that 2.1 burners are used at any one time. The Lunda was designed to be a global cooktop and as such will be released first in Australia, Asia and Europe, followed by the U.S. when the power requirements are reconfigured.  I have not seen a final release date but I am hopeful it will be soon.

The “Kitchen Client” software will extend the Windows operating system and integrate with current and future Windows Live services.  The software is expected to include a family calendar, recipe center, entertainment features and a shared bulletin board. The Kitchen Client  will encompass both customized user interface and middleware that will allow developers to further customize the environment with their own products and services.

Silver Recycled Glassware

It seems these days the buzz is all about Green Designrecycle glasswarerecycle glasswareProducts from flooring to bath towels are made of bamboo.  Napkins and coffee filters are made from hemp.  Recycled glass is everywhere.  It is incorporated into countertops, tiles, hardware and serveware.  I absolutely fell in love with this glassware from VivaTerra because it doesn’t look recycled.  It is very sophisticated.

What could be better than being stylish and environmentally friendly?
