Don’t worry, the Ilve Fusion cooktop doesn’t come with a recipe for sashimi lasagne. The sleek 90cm cooktop combines many features: an integrated downdraft hood to clear away steam and food odours, and four electronic cooking zones using state-of-the-art induction technology to make mealtimes simpler. $7,999. ilve.com.au
