It was too hard to think of a good title, since it's not really a standard flush cooktop, so I gave up :biggrin:

Yeah, the burgers and sandwich meats they fry up at my local burger joints & sandwich shops are awesome on them! I've seen electric flat-top ranges, induction flat-top ranges, but I had been searching for one like this - just needed the right keyword, thanks haha.

Cuz it is not a range. It's range + cooking surface :biggrin:


you know there are like small electric griddle you can buy right?

Yeah, I've got a small electric Presto model, as well as a Lodge cast iron griddle for the burners & grill, but the big one would be pretty cool. Especially since it's just a giant, flush-mounted cooking service. Flat stir-frys, pancakes, eggs, tortillas, etc. would all be easier when cooking large quantities. I've been doing a lot of make-ahead cooking & freezing lately, as well as living closer to family now, so the little griddles are no longer sufficient!

you need some serious range hood exhaust if you plan to install this. and warning signs on hot surface :whiste:

I'm sure you could get it really hot and lure an unsuspecting cat into walking across it with a little catnip on the countertop.

If you could sear it fast enough, you wouldn't have to deal with the normal routine of using the cat sticks or ropes.

I don't see a practical means of cleaning it when your done, where's the oil and grease from cooking a burger going to go?

you have to clean the surface. There should be a drip channel, I don't see it in op's picture.

Not much different than a Japanese Steak House where they cook the food in front of you on a large metal flat cooking surface. The grease and liquids just sort of burn off and then you just scrap the surface clean. No need for a drip pan. It is still not amazing and basically just a hot griddle which can be had for about one tenth the price.

You could just use cast iron instead? Cast iron browns meats better than SS.

This. While I do enjoy griddle cooked foods but I would never put one in as a permanently installed appliance. In any event, there is no shield/border between the countertop and the cooking surface. I can imagine that cooking on this appliance will be messy. Do people actually buy this thing?

According to the faq on the website these are designed to shallow out towards the center when heated making them kind of a hybrid between a teppan and a wok. I guess it's somewhat interesting. You could make onion volcanoes to entertain the kids while cooling steaks on the grill.
