Modular Options. If no single cooktop arrangement seems to satisfy, why not assemble your own? Homeowners can decide whether to break up the cooktop into separate stations around the kitchen, assemble a monster array of all six Integrated Cooktop modules, or combine two or more most-used modules to suit space and cooking requirements. Modules include two-element gas or electric burners, a steamer, deep fryer, grill, and multifunction (wok) burner. Gas burners include a high-low, dual-flame option for searing heat or fine simmering control. Estimated retail prices vary by dealer and region but should run between $1,000 and $1,600 per module.
