Surface Burner Ignition
To light the top burners, push and turn the appropriate control knob counter clockwise to the ‘HI’ position. You will hear a clicking noise–the sound of the electric spark igniting the burner. Once burner ignition has been achieved, then turn the burner control knob to adjust the desired heat setting.
NOTE: When one burner is turned to the ‘HI’ position, the burner ignition will spark. Do not attempt to disassemble or clean around any burner while another burner is on. Do not touch any burner cap, burner base, or igniter while the ignitor is sparking.
Simmer and Boil
A smaller flame will give the best simmer results. Small flames offer precise cooking
performance for delicate foods, keeping food warm, melting chocolate or butter, and
for cooking that need to cook over low heat for a long time.
The highest (larger) flame settings provide the maximum heat that is available on
your range. This setting should be used for heavy cooking loads such as water boiling
or pasta cooking.

Where are these ranges from? Kucht products are made with the finest sourced parts from all over the world. Italy, Spain, Germany, the USA, China are just some of the wide and varied vendors Kucht use in choosing the parts for Kucht ranges and appliances.
What are the standards for quality and security for your products? All Kucht models are CSA approved, meaning Kucht products are all well within Canadian and USA standards.

I see many of your competitors are using computer-driven displays and electronics in their ovens and ranges. Why don’t I see these on your models? Simple – they do nothing to help you cook and create delicious foods. They sometimes don’t give accurate readings, and they lock the user into a false sense of security. Plus, electronics and high heat don’t mix well. When the electronics stop working, you are basically left with a very expensive cooking dud on your hands. Fixing any problems is both costly and time-consuming as well.
Kucht ranges are made for cooking – not science fairs. If you look at any of the ranges professional chefs use in their kitchens, you almost never find electronic-driven models. That isn’t by accident!
Are Kucht ranges, ovens, and appliances easy to use? Yes, indeed! Kucht design products for the avid home chef – people who love to cook. They don’t want fancy gadgets – they want appliances that do the job, and do it well. In this respect, Kucht delivers!
Does simple design also mean no-frills when it comes to looks? Just the contrary! Kucht designed ranges and appliances to be both functional and fashionable. Kucht ranges all come with porcelain-coated ovens, as well as tops. Heavy-duty stainless steel, thick iron cooking grates… everything you expect in an upper-end appliance you’ll find in a Kucht. The moment you open your Kucht oven door you’ll instantly recognize the care Kucht put into each and every detail on Kucht ranges.
I see that your prices are remarkably lower than the other name brands – how can you offer such competitive prices? Great question! One reason is what Kucht mentioned above – Kucht use worldwide sourcing, and always strive to get the finest quality parts at the most reasonable prices. Now, this doesn’t mean Kucht look only at price. Kucht first and foremost want the parts and materials they use to be the best in class. Kucht then look for suppliers who can produce such quality pieces at reasonable and fair prices.
Another reason is that they’re not charging you extra for a designer name. Just because an appliance has a particular corporate brand shouldn’t mean you must pay for their “vanity” trademark. They price Kucht appliances to be competitive, not exorbitant.
Why haven’t I heard of the Kucht name before? Because they’re the relatively new kids on the block! Kucht first opened for business in 2007. Since then, they've used Kucht resources in building the finest professional-grade appliances Kucht possibly could. Frankly, that did affect the funds available for marketing purposes. However, now that Kucht line of products is ready, Kucht fully intend to make Kucht the name of choice for the upper-scale home kitchen!
Does Kucht offer different models? Yes, they do. For example, Kucht currently offer different models of kitchen ranges, made to suit the discriminating needs and tastes of even the most advanced and demanding home chef.
Bottom Line – why should I purchase a Kucht? A fair question! In a nutshell, here’s why:
Functionality – everything Kucht offer will work as promised!
Quality – each piece Kucht build will last, and last, and last!
Design – Your new appliance will simply look (and feel) great!
Affordability – For a price not far above standard kitchen appliances, you can now own a professional-class model that will give you years upon years of cooking enjoyment!
