Thermador Elevates Performance with the Next Generation Star® Burner

Patented, Iconic Burner Delivers More Power and Precise Control

(New York, NY – October 6, 2009) – Eleven years ago, Thermador changed the shape of gas cooking forever with the introduction of the Star® Burner. This dramatic re-imagining of the typical, circular gas burner allowed the most even flame and heat distribution of any cooktop or range on the market. And now, Thermador's Star rises even higher, with an elevated burner and increased output that fuels performance and allows for quick and easy clean-up.

"Thermador's elevated brass Star® Burner and solid black maintop sets a new industry standard in both performance and design," said Zach Elkin, Director, Luxury Division (Builders, Contractors, and Designers Group), Thermador. "Thermador now offers the greatest flexibility in cooking with burners that deliver a maximum power of 18k BTU and a delicate simmer of 375 BTU. For a true cooking enthusiast, even the most challenging recipes and techniques can now be more easily mastered."

The new Star® Burner will shine on Thermador's redesigned counter-depth Pro Harmony™ Ranges and Professional Series Rangetops are available now.

All Pro Harmony Ranges and Professional Rangetops can be configured with multiple Star® Burners and/or a 12" electric griddle.

The new Star® Burners feature an elevated Quick Clean Base™ to allow for effortless cleaning.

Two ExtraLow® burners electronically cycle the flame on and off at 375 BTU/hr for precise simmer control. ExtraLow can easily simmer a delicate sauce at 100 degrees all-day with no scorching.

Pro Harmony dual-fuel models offer an exclusive two-hour, rapid self-clean cycle—the fastest on the market. A complete cool down period is included in this two-hour cycle.

All Pro Harmony models feature Full Access® telescopic racks with an integrated easy-grip handle.
