Sofia is 100% handcrafted in Italy using only quality materials and designed with an impeccable attention to detail that produces a premium fit and finish like no other. Available in 30" and 36" widths and multiple fuel configurations such as gas, dual-fuel and induction, Sofia is a gem of a freestanding range certain to enhance any kitchen. Sofia's list of features and capabilities are sure to satisfy even the most demanding domestic chef. Sofia is crafted from high quality materials which include 304 stainless steel for the body, door and handle; aircraft aluminum for handle mounts and knobs; and glass for the door. For Sofia's oven, precise temperatures are achieved through a balance of a powerful 10 pass broiler element, a concealed bake element, both of which provide full coverage of the cooking area, and dual fan/dual convection ring elements. Any combination of these elements can be used to achieve the desired cooking environment from simply defrosting items, baking the most delicate delights or searing choice cuts of meat. Using them all together facilitates super- fast preheat times and effective self-clean functionality with minimal cleanup and odor. When it comes time to tend to the items being cooked, Sofia's full telescopic chromed rack and two additional chromed racks allow for easy access with their integrated hand holds. Eager cookie lovers will be able to watch the entire process take place with the superior, three lamp, halogen illumination in the interior and even press their hands and face up against Fulgor Milano's famous cool-touch, four-pane oversized glass door.

Brass burner rings provide consistent performance over their exceptionally long life and add a touch of elegance to Sofia's look.
