i-Cooking gas hobs in 4mm stainless steel worktops

i-Cooking ICG403 gascooker in 4mm Stainless Steel worktop


As mentioned before the main idea behind the i-Cooking system consists of two components:

  • The flush mounting of a gas burner system into a worktop.
  • The burner positions can be adjusted to the needs of the user.

These two principles are reflected in the i-Cooking concept developed for 4mm stainless steel worktops.

One with the worktop

3-pits-animatedroostersWith the traditional gas hobs the burners are usually mounted on top of a metal dripplate or glass ceramic sheet. Because of this construction method it is very difficult to flush-mount them into a worktop. Usually, they are just mounted on top of the worktop. A common complaint on these cooktops is that all corners, seams and crevices are difficult to clean. With a i-Cooking cooktop these problems are gone forever. Through a unique, patented mounting principle the dripplate is removed and thus all edges and seams where dirt can accumulate are gone. It also gives a unique look to the worktop, because it becomes part of the worktop instead something that is just added to it. The disadvantage of this solution is, however, that it is only applicable in 4 mm solid stainless steel. For all other materials 1mm Stainless steel, stone, composite see our ICGX solution

Optimized configurations

To give you an idea of what is possible with i-Cooking cooktops we have a number of predefined formats. The starting point for the design was to get the most useful working space between the burners. The limiting factor in this is the kitchen cabinet that usually sits under a cooktop, a cooktop often cannot be larger than that cabinet size. A second factor is the depth of the worktop. For a worktop with a rear mounted wall the pans need to be at a certain minimum distance from the rear so the wall won’t get to hot. This limits the depth of the cooktop. The predefined cooktops are suitable for cabinet widths of 900, 1000 and 1200mm and a worksheet depth of 600mm with a 20mm rear wall mounted on top it.

See the KOONAKA gashobs as some examples of possible configurations. All KOONAKA setups can be transferred 1 on 1 to a 4mm stainless steel worktop.

Flush mounting

The predefined KOONAKA hobs have a solid 4 mm dripplate and can be flush-mounted or mounted on top of a worktop. For the flush-mounted cooktop a 4mm deep slot should be milled in the worktop. The mounting method is the same as with a classical cooktop.

Customized Cooktops

We also offer the possibility to order customized cooktops. We regularly get this question if people are renovating there kitchen or if for instance the current cooktop is broken and there is no replacement cooktop that fits in the hole in the worktop. Instead of a new cooktop + worktop you can then design your own custom-made KOONAKA cooktop adapted to the cut-out in your current worktop.

Customised configurations

Usually the predefined setups will do but you have also the possibility of a customizing your i-Cooking solution. The number off burners, the types and the position can be changed to your liking. In consultation with the experts of ABK InnoVent you can design you own optimal cooktop or worktop. More information can be found under the chapter technical info.
