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.
