The kitchen has really become the center of the modern home – far more so than formal dining rooms or even dens or family rooms of the past. Today, the modern kitchen isn’t just for utility, it’s for entertaining. Along with the trend toward cooking big meals and entertaining in, American kitchens have gradually been trending toward professional quality equipment to go with comfortable, everyday decor. Nowhere is this more evident than the kitchen range, with European style convection ovens and restaurant-style gas ranges quickly becoming the norm. Bertazzoni offers this and more, combining a culinary-quality oven and cooktop with a sleek, modern Italian flair for a kitchen range that’s as fun to look at as it is to use.
If there’s one thing people are on the lookout for these days, it’s high powered gas cooktops. While there is some debate, these are by and large the preferred cooktop of chefs and are now, maybe unsurprisingly, one of the hottest new kitchen trends, and Bertazzoni gas ranges have some of the better ones. First, their gas burners come in multiple sizes – this is nothing unique, but it allows you a lot of versatility in terms of what you can cook. More importantly, their burners are dual burners, meaning they have a ring of fire on the inside and the outside of the burner. These can be controlled independently, heat up quickly, and offer a huge range of heating power, from 6,200 to 18,000 BTUs, even on a smaller range like this 24 Inch. The burners are also sealed, which makes them remarkably easy to clean, and have electric ignition which makes them both more efficient and safer to use.

One of the main attractions of these deluxe Italian ranges are their inclusion of European-style convection ovens. These are available in either electric or gas, and use special fans to help circulate heated air. This both makes the oven heat up faster and cook more evenly. Convection ovens allow you to cook food faster at a lower temperature, reducing both cooking time and the amount of energy you use. For those unfamiliar or uncomfortable with convection cooking, both their electric and gas models can be used in traditional mode as well. Better still, Bertazzoni’s range ovens have precise digital controls and can produce a wide range of temperatures, from about a hundred to over eight hundred degrees Fahrenheit, meaning the oven can be used for everything from defrosting and dough-proofing to high temperature grilling and broiling. Some even come with two full sized ovens, so you can cook multiple dishes at different temperatures at the same time.

“Professional style” kitchen equipment is all the rage these days, but what exactly that means can be a little more nebulous. Stylish kitchen faucets and stainless steel ranges certainly look like they might have come right out of a professional kitchen, but to Bertazzoni “professional” is more about usability than aesthetics. That’s why, in addition to offering the high-powered gas ranges and convection ovens desired by chefs, all their Pro-Series ranges, including this 48 Inch Range, are also designed to accommodate industry-standard sized catering accessories, containers, and dishes, while others come with their own add-ons. Even if you aren’t a professional chef, Bertazzoni makes it possible to cook professional quality (and quantity) food in your own home.

Sleek Italian Inspiration
Bertazzoni is a company that’s extremely proud of both it’s Italian heritage and it’s family origin, and their products definitely reflect this. In fact, many of their kitchen ranges, like this Yellow Pro Series, come in the bright, bold colors associated with their native Parma region of Italy – bold red, blue, yellow, and green in addition to the more conventional stainless steel and black. With a nod to the fashion and auto industries in Milan, many of their products are not only rounded out with sleek chrome detailing, but the colored finishes are actually done with the same technique used on luxury Italian cars. This ensures that the finish is acid and heat resistant, and can be easily cleaned even if common kitchen substances (like oil or water) are left on the surface for extended periods of time.
Designed By Chefs For Chefs
But if Italy is a design hub for the world, it’s even more so a center for cooking and the culinary arts. So it’s no surprise that a cooking appliance made in Italy is going to be designed with good, home cooking in mind. It’s for that reason that Bertazzoni’s ranges aren’t just sleek, showy (though this Traditional Range is definitely that!), and packed full of luxury technology. The convection oven is designed for responsive, precise control, a moist cooking environment, and healthier food. The gas burners produce a high, even heat with a surface that’s easy to clean. And with fully integrated touch controls that allow you to save multiple preferred cooking settings, and as many as eight fully adjustable shelves in the oven, Bertazzoni makes it easy to customize your kitchen range and use it exactly the way that works best for you.
A Green Choice
Finally, one of the best things about Bertazzoni’s kitchen ranges is that they’re a purchase you can feel good about. With a whole host of environmentally friendly features – like three or more layers of super-insulating glass, energy-saving convection ovens, and more efficient gas burners that produce a negligible amount of CO2 and heat up faster – Bertazzoni is a great part of a green home that’s both luxurious and functional. Plus, their mostly-stainless-steel ranges, including this 36 Inch Range, are 99% recyclable, and are often made of recycled materials to help further reduce their overall footprint.
If you’re looking for a luxurious, professional quality kitchen range for your next kitchen remodel, Bertazzoni is an option you definitely don’t want to overlook. What are you looking for in a new kitchen range? Are you most interested in the cooktop, the oven, the style, or something else?
