Fulgor Milano New Induction Ranges Provide Sustainability and Flexibility
Rosà, ITALY – Italian luxury appliance manufacturer Fulgor Milano launched their much-anticipated 48” Sofia Pro Induction Ranges during the 2022 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS).
One of the only 48” induction ranges on the North American market, Fulgor Milano’s 48” Sofia Professional Induction Range delivers precise and responsive induction power using professional-style control knobs one might expect on a gas range. Unlike many competitors who would use a digital touch control, this feature gives homeowners all the benefits of digital control but with the same look and tactile pro-style control expected on a traditional professional range.
With premium induction technology under an elegant ceramic glass surface, the range provides optimal performance with an efficient transfer of energy, providing a more sustainable heat source for cooking. These new products will also provide a premium non-gas option for those areas of the country looking to restrict the use of natural gas. The 48” induction range will be available in two models, allowing homeowners to choose between seven induction cooking zones, or five induction cooking zones and a dual-zone induction powered griddle, both of which emulate a traditional gas range setup.
“The 48” induction range is the perfect addition to the Sofia Professional Collection. In developing the range, our goal was to deliver professional cooking results using a sustainable heat source in an exceptionally designed product,” says Gianni Meneghetti, CEO of Fulgor Milano. “We’ve designed this new ultra-modern alternative to a gas or dual fuel range specifically for the North American market. Kitchen designers will be able to offer their clients a classic-looking, large format range where gas connections can be challenging or induction technology preferred.”
Meticulously handcrafted and assembled in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, Sofia Pro appliances demonstrate the best of Italian craftsmanship and attention to detail with hand-polished seams and welds. The fit and finish are perfected with precision-tooled parts using premium materials, including 304 stainless steel, aircraft quality aluminum, and tempered glass.
As with all Sofia Professional ranges, the new 48” induction ranges will come with a standard stainless steel finish; however, homeowners who purchase a Sofia range have the option to personalize the range with interchangeable door kits available in six matte and glossy colors including Venetian Red, Gondola Black (gloss black), Black Velvet (matte black), Palladio White (gloss white), Verona White (matte white), and Rialto Grey. This flexible and sustainable solution extends the design life of the ranges, ideal for real estate resale or a change in design preference.
