Hey Appliance Fans,
Thermador keeps innovating, don’t they? New to the Thermador appliance lineup is their 30-inch wide Pro-Harmony range with five burners. That’s right, appliance fans. Instead of other manufacturers that produce their 30-inch ranges with 4 burners, it’s possible to get five pots on a 30-inch range from Thermador.
Want a dual-fuel 30-inch range? No problem. Model PRD305PH features a self-cleaning, convection oven with natural gas surface cooking. While the dual-fuel unit ships ready to connect to natural gas, Thermador includes a propane conversion kit with the unit. Need all gas? You’re covered. Model PRG305PH runs on natural gas with a manual clean, gas convection oven. And for you liquid propane junkies, model PRL305PH is factory set to be used with propane.
What Thermador hasn’t changed is their signature star burner. The star shaped design, with the gas portals being staggered throughout the outline of the star, focuses more flame on the bottom of the pot or pan. Side note, if you’re cooking and you notice that the flames are spilling out of the sides of pan, you’re wasting energy. Turn the flame down so it’s focused under the pot.
The center burner’s output is powerful at 15,000 BTUs. If you want more power, use the front right burner at 18,000 BTUs. The left front rates at 10,000 and the back two burners’ output is 8,000 BTUs. Power aside, Thermador is known for their XtraLow simmer burners. The back left and front right burners have the XtraLow feature. When the XtraLow setting is engaged, the flame on the burner ignites for about 10 seconds every 60 seconds. It’s difficult to put into words just how gentle this is, but it’s absolutely possible to melt chocolate chips on a paper plate when using the XtraLow setting. Maybe you won’t ever try it, but at least you won’t have to break out the double boiler when it’s time to melt chocolate, right? And when you spill that chocolate on the range’s surface, it’s easily cleaned thanks to the porcelain coating Thermador puts on the cooktop.
Whether you’re baking, roasting, or broiling, the range’s convection oven is ready for the job. With 4.4 cubic feet of interior space, most anything will fit inside including the big `ol 25-pound turkey. Another side note: instead of cooking a 25-pounder, roast two 13-15 birds. You’ll get a much moister bird. Think about it, heat has to penetrate deep inside a large turkey and the outer portions tend to dry out. Oh and brine, your turkey. Trust me. By the way, the PRD305PH (dual-fuel 30-inch range) has the industry’s fastest self-cleaning cycle at two hours.
Get a FREE Dishwasher with a Thermador Range
Who doesn’t want a free dishwasher!? Now until December 15th, when you purchase a 30-inch Thermador range (or any Thermador range for that matter) you’ll receive a dishwasher for free. A value of $1,299 and available with a stainless steel door (model DWHD440MFM and DWHD440MFP) or ready to accept a cabinet front (model DWHD440MPR), the Emerald series dishwasher from Thermador is absurdly quiet at 48 decibels. It’s so quiet you might not know it’s running so the Emerald dishwasher shines a blue light onto the floor so you know it’s on. It holds 15 place settings and has four different wash cycles and four wash options. Washing dishes is the bane of my existence and I’m sure you feel the same way. So let Thermador’s Emerald dishwasher do the job for you.
If the Thermador brand was good enough for Julia Child and the Brady Bunch’s kitchen, it will be fantastic in your kitchen. So stop in to our Lansdale, PA showroom so we can show you all the goodness that is Thermador. Until next time, America!
