Cooktops are gaining in popularity these days, thanks to the flexibility they offer homeowners. When designing your kitchen space, you can choose whether to place your cooktop on a countertop, an island, or above an oven. One manufacturer that should be on your list as you consider your cooktop options is Bertazzoni. Their premier, Italian-made appliances add a touch of class to any kitchen. To help you in your quest, we've put together this expert-picked list of the best Bertazzoni cooktops of 2021.
This 24-in. electric smoothtop style cooktop from the Professional Series comes with four ceran heating elements, with a maximum output of 1,800 W. Boil, sear, and sauté with ease at this unit's highest settings, or take advantage of its lowest settings to gently simmer your delicate sauces. When using the most powerful element, you won't need to worry about your pots boiling over, thanks to this unit's handy boil over sensor.
A glass ceramic surface creates an elegant look while also being easy to wipe clean, and the hot surface indicator light enhances safety by alerting you that the cooktop surface has not yet cooled. Integrated front touch controls also contribute to a sleek design, while also enhancing safety by keeping you from having to reach over hot pots and pans to change settings.
Finally, thanks to this ADA compliant unit's double zone element, you can maximize heat delivery to your pots and pans while saving on energy costs.
This 30-in. natural gas cooktop from the Professional Series comes with four sealed burners, making it easy to clean up any spills. Bertazzoni's exclusive dual power burner in cast brass can range from a low simmer at 750 BTUs all the way to an impressive 18,000 BTUs of full power, with best-in-class heat up time. Elegant cast iron grates make it easy to slide pots and pans across burners. Metal knob controls and a one-touch ignition make it quick and easy to start up the burners.
Safety is key with this cooktop. It includes a child safety system to prevent accidental ignition. What's more, this cooktop's thermocouple safety system automatically shuts off the gas if the flame is extinguished--even if the power goes out.

Thanks to a maximum burner output of 17,000 BTUs, searing, boiling, and sautéing your favorite foods is quick and simple. This unit's brass burners are particularly capable of withstanding the heat associated with such activity, meaning you'll never need to worry about them warping over time.

Safety is a priority with this unit as well. It employs 100% failsafe thermocouple technology to immediately shut off the flow of gas should a flame be extinguished.
What should I look for when buying a cooktop?
When buying a cooktop, considerations of space are important, as well as questions of budget. Electric has the advantage of being more energy-efficient than gas. However, for gourmet cooking, gas tends to be more popular than electric, thanks to the ease and speed with which one can control the temperature.
