Commitment to Sustainability
In 2002, SCHOTT introduced the first glass ceramic cooktop manufactured without toxic refining agents, arsenic or antimony - materials commonly used in the manufacturing of all types of glass. SCHOTT CERAN® glass ceramic cooktops primarily consists of quartz sand – natural resources found on earth in nearly inexhaustible quantities.
SCHOTT ROBAX® transparent glass ceramic is a key component of an EPA certified and clean burning heating appliance. Because the glass can withstand extremely high temperatures, it allows the fuel inside the unit to burn hotter and more complete. This equates to more heat transferred into the room, and less particulates into the air.
