Bertazzoni Range: Hands-On Cooking Test

Bertazzoni Range: Hands-On Cooking Test

Hi this is John with Designer Appliances,
New Jersey and New York’s Premiere appliance showroom. A lot of our customers gravitate towards Bertazzoni
because of the beautiful design. The range is counter-depth so it won’t stick
out into your kitchen like all other pro-style ranges and it carry’s a reasonable price point
for a high-end appliance, especially if you are looking for a splash of color. However not much has been said about Bertazzonis
cooking performance, so today were going hands on to show you how these ranges perform in
the kitchen. Today we’re here with Chef Jonathan from ATP
Catering in Paterson, NJ whose going to help us demo this unit. So Chef Jonathan, what impresses you most
about the Bertazzoni range? Actually the first thing that was impressive
to me was the color. They have so many different colors I thought
it was a toy. Then when we came in I got to actually use
it – it kicks ass. Can I say kick-ass on here? Alright, this is great! But yeah, so for the most part we utilized
every kind of feature that we could today. We boiled pasta today under 12 minutes which
we really don’t even do in restaurants. One of the most impressive things that I found
about this was being able to use this dual burner system. Actually being able to simmer at one point
with a really low simmer and also having the ability to hug the bottom of the pan when
we turn the heat all the way up. As Jonathan mentioned, this range isn’t just
a pretty toy. It packs a ton of cooking power. With our first test we boiled water for our
pasta and were able to achieve a rapid boil in under 10 minutes. This is thanks to the 19,000 BTU power burner
featuring Bertazzoni’s unique dual ring design. The inner and outer flames work together to
maximize the surface area getting heated by the burner flames, allowing you to quickly
get a pan up to temperature for searing or in our case getting water boil quickly. For our test we were using the 6 burner Bertazzoni
gas range, and the large cook surface and continuous grates made it easy to move around
pots and pans as we managed the multiple dishes we prepared. In addition to high power output, Bertazzoni
gives you the flexibility for delicate tasks as well. For the pasta we prepared both a red and a
white sauce using the simmer power level and we were able to keep a steady low simmer going
while we prepared the rest of the meal. Similar to the cooktop, the oven also packs
a ton of chef inspired features. You’ll notice right away the beautiful edge
to edge glass door. The door gives you a clear view into the progress
of your meal. During our testing we learned the interior
light stays on during the entire cooking cycle, so your food will always be easy to monitor. Inside, Bertazzoni has a dual convection fan
system. The dual fans circulate air inside the oven
cavity resulting in even cooking across all racks. If you’ve been on the market for a range,
you may have heard that electric ovens are better than gas ovens for baking due to their
even, consistent temperatures. The reason for this is because most gas ovens
continuously cycle the flame on and off in order to reach the desired temperature. This cycling results in huge temperature swings,
which, for baking especially, can make or break the end result. Bertazzoni utilizes a variable gas flame in
the oven that is automatically adjusted to maintain temperature instead of cycling on
and off for a more precise control over the oven temperature. To really show off the chef inspired design
of the Bertazzoni, we tested the gas infrared broiler. Unlike other smaller broilers that are an
afterthought, Bertazzoni designed theirs with home chefs in mind. The full width design gives you even results
across whatever you are broiling. We tested this with both chicken and with
lamb, and the results speak for themsevles. For the chicken, each piece has the same level
of sear regardless of where they were sitting in the broiling pan. The same goes for the lamb. The lamb rack was seared evenly across it’s
entire surface. One last thing we wanted to highlight was
the unique safety features found on the Bertazzoni. With a high powered gas range there is always
a concern of what happens if the flame gets blown out. A common occurrence in my home is i’ll boil
pasta and walk away for a few minutes just to come back and the water has boiled over. On most ranges, this would extinguish the
flame and gas would continue to pour into your kitchen creating a serious hazard. Bertazzoni has a unique safety valve that
will turn off the gas after 7 seconds when no flame is detected as seen here… Another nice safety feature, especially if
you have kids, is the triple glass oven door, which was cool to the touch even after we
were cooking for over 2 hours. After spending a few hours in the kitchen
with the Bertazzoni range we were really impressed by the performance. Let us know if you have any questions in the

  2. Looks good. One thing I've noticed when looking at ranges, especially the Miele, is they seem to be taller than the countertop as opposed to flush?
