Arrange cookware however you like with this full-induction kitchen unit.

Siemens' subsidiary, Thermador, revealed its Freedom Induction Cooktop at CES 2012 earlier this year. Now, Siemens will design its own full-surface induction cooktop as part of its home appliances range. The unique stove will have 48 conductors to allow pots and pans to be placed anywhere on the flat ceramic surface. There would also be a touch screen that can detect and display the size, shape, and location of each cookware.

The kitchen unit will also be more energy efficient than traditional fixed stoves as it enables a continuous and even heat distribution. Siemens showcased a demo of the cooktop at Eurocucina 2012, a kitchen design exhibit in Milan, Italy.
