Above the Benchtop

These parts are visible when you’re using the Pitt and directly interact with them:

  • Pan Support/Trivet: This holds your cooking pans or pots in place, ensuring stability while you cook.

  • Knobs/Scales: Used to regulate the intensity of the flame, offering precise control over your cooking temperature.

  • Flame Distributor: Available in brass, black brass, and aluminium, this component ensures even flame distribution for consistent cooking.

  • Heat Shield: Designed to protect surrounding areas from the heat emitted by the burner, ensuring a safe cooking environment.

  • Food Grade Silicone Ring: Specially crafted for spill control and heat mitigation, this ring adds an extra layer of safety and cleanliness to your cooking process.

Together, these components ensure that every time you use the Pitt, you get a safe, efficient, and enjoyable cooking experience.

Under the Benchtop

Hidden beneath the surface, these components form the backbone of the Pitt cooking system:

  • Substructure/Chassis: This is the main framework that holds the entire assembly together. It’s designed for durability and long-lasting performance.
  • Heat Conductor: Responsible for directing the flame upwards and ensuring uniform heating. It plays a crucial role in providing efficient heat transfer to your pans or pots.

With this breakdown, you can appreciate the thought and engineering that goes into every Pitt cooking system, ensuring you get the best cooking experience every time.

4. Installation Procedure: An Innovative Methodology

The Pitt cooking system adopts a pioneering installation technique, distinguishing it from traditional methods. Detailed below is an elucidative overview of our signature approach and the inherent advantages it bestows.

Under-the-Bench Installation:

  1. Preliminary Overview: Before initiating the installation, ensure the under-bench area is accessible, devoid of obstructions, and prepped for the procedure.

  2. Positioning: Instead of the customary drop-in from the top, the Pitt system is maneuvered from underneath the bench. This atypical methodology is delineated in the accompanying GIF.

  3. Design Considerations: Given the under-the-bench installation, it’s paramount that the design allocates adequate space for all Pitt components. This ensures an unhampered access during installation and maintenance.

  4. Advantages:

    • Aesthetic Superiority: The absence of top-drop ensures a seamless integration with the countertop, enhancing the visual appeal.
    • Ease of Installation: By working from underneath, the installation is streamlined, reducing potential surface damage.
    • Maintenance Accessibility: Post-installation maintenance becomes more manageable due to the unhindered access to components from below.
