The X-Max Gas Stove is a powerful hob with distinctive X-shaped pan supports. These are specially tailored for use with a wok and for pan-cooking, which makes the appliance primarily designed for Asian consumers. The flame size is regulated precisely in seven stages by means of a new control system; each setting is shown on a display. As the pan supports are screened at the front and back, the heat is more strongly concentrated. This also prevents the operating knobs from heating up.
