Finger swipe and glide to command GE's new Monogram induction range
Kitchen & Household
Hey guys, this is Brian Bennett and CNet and we are taking a first look at the brand new GE Monogram 36 inch induction cook top.
This very futuristic looking range actually has a ton of new features that GE is bringing into its product line-up in 2015.
First off, you're gonna notice that it uses induction cooking technology.
That sends a magnetic field around your pots and pans that are magnetic to heat them up with precision and lots of control and with lots of speed.
The other thing here that you'll see is.
It has these glide touch controls, which enable you to turn on each burner, just with a swipe of your finger.
Kinda like a smart phone or a tablet.
What's also cool is you can link these burners together.
So you can have two burners going at the same time.
Also pretty sweet.
Is a $150 accessory which enables [UNKNOWN] cooking.
It essentially is a thermostat or a thermometer that sits right here inside your stockpot.
You got water in there and it connects via bluetooth to the range.
And you're able to see the temperature readout of what you want the water to be.
So if you wanna get your hands on one of these induction cook tops, it isn't gonna be a impulse buy.
You're gonna have to spend $3100 dollars for the top of the line, 36 inch, monogram induction range you see here.
And prices will get lower if you say, go with a Profile or a Cafe product from GE.
Another thing is, if you want to get one of these in your house, you're going to have to wait until May of 2015, because that's when GE says these products are going to ship.
