What does the cooking space of the future look like?

We are always looking for new answers to this question. We look in every direction beyond the borders of glass-ceramic. Because we believe that there is a lot of space around cooking surfaces for interesting topics and new ideas. We call these FUSICS®:

unction – intelligent functional design that optimizes cooking

rbanism –
create the greatest cooking experience in the smallest space

ustainability – forward-looking and environmentally-friendly solutions

llumination – light as an effective resource for handling and ambience

onnectivity –
connected kitchen for more efficient cooking

ocial experience – kitchen as a place for family, friends, guests

A premiere: The FUSICS® Table Prototype.

Our ideas for the future cooking spaces have taken shape and became real. It is the prototype of a future-oriented SCHOTT CERAN® cooking block.

The interactive cooking application on a 4k multi touch display provides direct connection to a recipe database (by Kitchenstories) with tutorial videos and step-by-step applications.
The heartpiece of the cooking table is a 8-zone induction cooktop with scratch-resistant coating CERAN Miradur®. It can be operated from both sides. The illuminated LED bar is being activated by a proximity sensor.
Award-worthy innovation

Award-worthy innovation.

As young as it is, our free-standing cooking table prototype has already been awarded as “Kitchen Product Innovation of the Year” at the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards.  

The table features an interactive cooking app on a multi-touch display. A dynamic list of ingredients and matching tutorials turn cooking into an interactive experience. Another innovative feature is the Near-Field Sensor. This sensor uses built-in lights to mark cooking areas as soon as the cook comes near. Moreover, another achievement is concealed behind our FUSICS® table: an 8-zone bidirectional induction stove. Its surface reliably wards off daily challenges with our scratch-resistant CERAN Miradur® cooking surface.

The initiator of the awards has been the leading business magazine for kitchens and bathrooms for 30 years in the UK, kbbreview.

The material from which ideas are made.

SCHOTT CERAN® is more than a cooking surface. It brings innovative technologies, individual design, a modern lifestyle and more joy for cooking into the kitchen. And it is always fascinating to us, just how many possibilities are still hidden within this material.

We recently spread this fascination to people bringing SCHOTT CERAN® to the Design Fair in London. Here we spoke about the future of the kitchen with industry partners, with retailers and customers, with those interested in design and technology, with all of you. We discussed ideas and sound out possibilities together. Experience more in our event movie:
