disagree  Roland Grefer: it could be a glass ceramic cooking field in a marble counter top with a protective oak handrail in front of it.

vitralite cooker


Explanation:
From my own personal experience, glass-ceramic top cookers are known as vitralite cookers in the UK. I am not sure how the "marble with oak railing" fits int here? Are we talking about a cooker at all?

ceran stove or ceran cooktop


Explanation:
In the US, Glaskeramikherde go under the name "Ceran". It's the smooth ceramic cooking surface into which the burners are integrated (no spaces between the stove top and the burners, and the stove is thus much easier to clean (believe me, that's a very important consideration!).

As has been pointed out before, Marmor mit Eichengeländer has nothing to do with the stove; I get the impression you have a list there - maybe a real estate listing that enumerates the various advantages of a house or apartment?
