Stove of the future?

Showy chefs can demonstrate their uncanny dexterity with Rendezvous, a table that doubles as a rangetop.

This design concept uses new technology that's just about ready for the mass market: induction electronics, arranged in random cooking zones.

No plugging in for you — just place a blender or electronic frying pan on its surface and it magically soaks up the electricity, cooking in no time.

Its slide-out drawers can be warming trays or refrigeration units. And check out those radical controls embedded in the side. Once you're done cooking or mixing, it's ready to perform its other function as a spacey-looking kitchen table.
