Recently I had a customer shopping for appliances from Fairfield County, Connecticut stop by the Curto’s appliance showroom. He was putting together a kitchen and had a great idea as to what he wanted, however there was a question regarding his choice of a cooktop. He had been sold on the Wolf CT36G/S, but after some online research, he started to drift towards the Thermador SGSX365FS. Why?

The patented Thermador Star Burners.

Thermador touts that the Star Burner system is the most efficient gas burner design in the marketplace.

It boasts:

– A single point ignition that reduces noise when igniting.
Maximum BTU output of 18,000BTU/HR

Thermador states that the Star Burner’s shape creates a perimeter that is 56% longer and has more flame ports than a comparable round burner. So, what you get is a superior flame spread and reduced cold spot, which equates to faster and more even heating.

The Star Burner is a unique selling point for Thermador and as we continue to sell their products, consumers continue to give positive feedback on them. The one caveat is that when their simmer burner is set to the EXTRA LOW feature, which takes it to 275 BTU’s, it will make a clicking noise every minute. I have had a small number of customers complain about this. However, my view is that there aren’t many (if any) other burners in the marketplace that will allow you to go this low, so the click is worth it. Plus, you can take the regular Star Burners down to 350, so in effect they can act as your simmer burner without the noise.
