The Evo Affinity 25E Cooktop is designed for indoor residential kitchens. An extremely capable cooking appliance, the Affinity 25E is ideal for warming, holding foods, and for low-to-high temperature preparations. Foods can be prepared directly on the cook surface and indirectly using and pots and pans like traditional stove top cooking.
The 25E has a 25” (635mm) diameter black seasoned steel cook surface heated underneath by a single dual-zone electric heater. Evo’s technology allows independent heat adjustment across inner and outer cook surface zones for managing a wide range of menu possibilities. Electric heaters deliver heat to each cook surface zone via separate inner and outer control knobs. Individual temperature monitoring is digitally displayed for each zone. Surface temperatures range from 150ºF to 525ºF (66ºC to 274ºC) from the center to the outside edge without the hot spots and temperature problems associated with traditional square griddles. The heater system is electronically controlled and engaged with an On/Off button.
The LCD display shows inner and outer set temperatures that correspond to each respective analog knob position. A display icon illuminates whenever a heater becomes active. A Mode selector displays actual momentary temperature at both inner and outer cook surface zones. A Hot Surface warning indicator illuminates when surface temperatures are above 150F (66ºC). Operating on 208V-230V, the Affinity 25E Cooktop is the perfect centerpiece for any kitchen. For indoor social cooking spaces, try designing your Evo into your kitchen island.

Maintenance Is Easy
Keeping your Evo well maintained will ensure that it serves you a long time. And fortunately, it is easy to clean! Below are a few tips on taking care of your Evo Flattop and keeping it presentable and functional.
First – Break the Bad Habit !
Growing up with open flame grills taught you that trying to clean them was futile, so you stopped trying. Evo appliances are different – you can get them remarkably clean with little effort. So don’t fall into the old habit of neglect. If you start the good habit with your new Evo of spending just a few seconds after every cooking to clean up, you will discover it is not only easy but quite beneficial.
Caring For The Cook Surface
Regular cleaning and care for your flattop cooking surface will keep your Evo looking and performing its best. Properly maintained, this cook surface will provide a lifetime of continual service.
The cook surface is designed to hold a fine layer of cooking oil on its surface, referred to as “seasoning” in the culinary world. This oil helps to prevent food from sticking and makes cooking easier. Oils with high smoking points (e.g. grape seed, extra virgin olive oil, canola, soy) work best because they won’t break down as easy during normal cooking cycles. Also, their taste may be neutral or preferred over others.
Evo’s cook surface is much like maintaining fine cast iron cookware. When the surface requires cleaning, there are a few basic cleaning techniques to use. For quick and routine cleaning between preparations, a metal spatula works for removing the majority of surface debris. For tougher areas where sugars or other debris glaze the cook surface, pour a small amount of oil on the soiled surface while the cook surface is warm and scrape the debris away with the surface scraper. Tip for sticky substances: heat the cook-surface to a high temperature and allow the sticky debris to become brittle. Once the debris is brittle, use the scraper to brush it away. Unless you are prepared to re-season your cook surface, you should avoid cleaning the flattop with soap and water (as it will obviously wash away the oil seasoning).
