A hidden induction cooking unit is the best part of this modern, tech-savvy kitchen!

This kitchen’s secret sauce is a flexible, hidden, induction cooktop – and it is flexible! Lapitech, an Italian company, created a cooking system that could be fully concealed under a modern sintered stone kitchen counter! It is activated by a technological cooking mat and the innovative system features an electrothermal part developed in collaboration with the University of Padua. Lapitec Chef was brought to life after years of research and is patented.

The induction cooking system is seamless and very easy to operate. All you have to do is place the Lapitec Chef silicone mat on your worktop to activate the touch controls and switch on the system. The mat is key, without it the induction unit and controls will be inactive and the worktop is like any other kitchen counter only distinguished only by small engravings that align with the mat’s controls.

Lapitec Chef allows for easy cleaning and storage so the counter can be used for other activities like preparing food, plating dishes and hosting social occasions. Interestingly, Lapitec is a 100% sintered stone and it is also non-porous, non-absorbent as well as resistant to chemicals which makes it ideal for both indoor and outdoor kitchens. You can choose to have either two or four cooking rings for your induction system.

The one-of-its-kind cooking mat looks like a normal silicone mat but comes equipped with magnetic sensors and a hidden coil. Lapitec Chef is compatible with all induction cookware and the best part is that it is also dishwasher safe! For additional safety,  it can be configured to work in bridge and child lock mode. You can choose from different finishes to match the induction system with your kitchen’s aesthetic while integrating the technical potential of sintered stone to elevate your cooking game!
