I want that cooktop

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.

  1. This is absolutely GREAT Ann!

    Just think. In those tight kitchens, we could do an 18″ deep counter with no upper cabinets and a shallow, chimney style hood.

    Thanks for pointing it out to me. I hadn’t seen it.
