outer space to oven-connected: SCHOTT CERAN® reforms cooktops for modern kitchens

the kitchen has always been more than a place to prepare food; it is a social rather than solely functional space. this emphasis has been accentuated during the pandemic as people spend a lot more time at home, transforming living spaces into offices, classrooms, kindergarten or even an online restaurant, bar and café. SCHOTT recognizes the increased aesthetic and functional requirements for the modern kitchen, especially with the specialized glass ceramic surfaces CERAN®. the cooktop, specifically, must be safe and sustainable as well as tough and durable.

SCHOTT CERAN® – a specialized brand from the german glass innovation company SCHOTT – began in space. its original black glass-ceramic material was used to protect spaceships from the heat when they re-entered the earth’s atmosphere. its innovative qualities were transferred by SCHOTT engineers to revolutionize cooking 50 years ago in 1971. it has since offered a clean and safe material with timeless aesthetics and standards. these have been continuously refined over the years for digitalization, personalization and sustainability aspects. as well, the product family is constantly expanded to push the possibilities of cooking further.

the scratch-resistant glass-ceramic cooktop surface is twice as resistant as conventional cooktops

 

 

the list of requirements for cooktops are extensive and demanding. they are heated to extreme temperatures, knocked by steel pans and plates and splashed with food, before being cleaned with harsh chemicals and abrasive scourers. SCHOTT CERAN miradur® cooktop enhances the highly beneficial, world’s first scratch-resistant technology. as the only scratch-resistant glass-ceramic cooktop panel, the surface is twice as resistant as conventional cooktops and almost as hard as diamond. it adds superior hardness for a long-lasting shine in your modern kitchen.
