Like all induction cooktops, the ultraquick, flame-free Thermador Freedom heats cookware using safe electromagnetic energy. Unlike the rest, its 36-inch surface senses where items are placed so you don't have to segregate pots and pans on single burners. A touchscreen shows their location and lets you control temps.
