HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2010) -  Bosch home appliances, the appliance manufacturer known worldwide for quality and efficiency, is proud to announce that its Electric Cooktop with AutoChef (NET8054UC) and Evolution® Gas Range (HGS7052UC) have been recognized as Consumers Digest Best Buys. The designation recognizes products for several key attributes important to consumers, including performance, ease-of-use, durability, warranty, efficiency, styling and maintenance requirements. 

"We are honored to receive Consumers Digest Best Buy recommendations for our Electric Cooktop with AutoChef and Evolution Range," said John Farley, Senior Brand and Environmental Marketing Manager at Bosch. "Recognition by this consumer publication reflects Bosch's commitment to providing families with top-notch German-engineered cooking appliances at a great value."

Electric Cooktop
The Bosch 800 Series electric cooktop is engineered to make meal preparation convenient. AutoChef sensor cooking technology works with nine pre-programmed meal options -- cutlets/chops, poultry, steak medium rare, steak well done, fish, frozen food, French fries, pancakes and omelets/eggs -- to measure the temperature from the bottom of the pan and apply only the perfect amount of energy. The result is precise cooking, every time, and without waste of energy. The cooktop's sensor technology is complemented by sleek European design -- SteelTouch controls operate with a soft touch and replace bulky control knobs with a clean, modern stainless steel strip that lies flush within the cooktop's stainless steel frame.

Evolution Gas Range
The Evolution Range embodies the sleek European style that defines Bosch, while offering a wealth of performance and convenience features. A master of powerful boiling performance and gentle simmering, the Bosch Evolution Gas Range boasts a 16,000 BTU power burner (PowerSim®) and extra low simmer (OptiSim®) capabilities on all four burners. All Bosch ranges offer Touch & Turn® Oven Control, an easy-to-use touch control and electro-mechanical dial that controls up to 11 cooking modes and a convenient self cleaning mode.
