Electrolux Aurora Induction Cooktop

Electrolux AuroraI think Australians have a different idea of low-profile design than we do here.  The new Aurora Induction cooktop from Electrolux is called low-profile but it stands two inches tall.  I think this makes cleaning more difficult but many people are excited about the look of the Aurora.

The  Aurora cooktop stands out from other cooktops with it’s LED perimeter lighting and case of white Corian.  The unit is controlled by a touch pad on the white patterned glass top.

The cooktop received an Australian Design Mark. It retails (in Australia only) for $10,000 AUD or approximately $7,050 USD.

Many descriptions I have read describe the Aurora as an appliance that is ideal for open design plans.  Even though the unit has a child safety lock, the installation shown is not considered safe for people walking past the rear of the island.  They could potentially be burned by steam or grease.

Another thing to consider before splurging on this cooktop is that Corian is not heat resistant. 

While induction cooktops are known for not putting out heat; you should be aware that after the food gets hot it will radiate heat to the pot. If the pot is warm enough and comes in contact with the Corian base, you could scorch it.
