LG makes inroads into the kitchen
LG Electronics is not content by winning over your heart in the living room – it wants to make its presence felt in the kitchen as well. In fact, the company has updated its kitchen portfolio by throwing in its first ever built-in ovens and cooktops which are pleasing to the eye as well. For those who are in Chicago anytime from today will the 13th, you will be able to check out this new range at the Kitchen/Bath Industry Show there. According to ohn Herrington, president of Digital Appliances, LG Electronics USA, Inc., “In true LG fashion, we are weaving award-winning design with technology to craft beautifully styled built-in ovens and cooktops that complement our current offerings. Our new cooking appliances appeal to those culinary enthusiasts with high-end kitchens who seek powerful performance and a sleek, contemporary look.”
The built-in wall ovens are pretty unique, featuring both single and double oven options that come with a special 7″ touch screen control system which boasts LG’s famous LCD technology. The intuitive display ensures that knobs and buttons are playthings of yesteryear, allowing consumers to wield the power of cooking and clean-up convenience at the touch of their fingertips. In fact, all cycles and cooking options including temperature setting, cooking time monitoring and more can also be performed.
The ovens even come pre-loaded with 100 gourmet recipes that are spread across ten food categories, turning even an incompetent cook like me into a chef. All you need to do is select the recipe you want to wow your guests with, and the oven will set the precise cooking cycle required automatically. Each oven boasts up to 4.7 cu. ft of capacity, making meal preparation a snap whenever you cook for the family or entertain a bunch of guests who drop by. With the inclusion of LG’s exclusive convection system, you will be able to obtain preheat times of up to 30% faster and more even heat distribution. Designed in a stainless steel finish, these ovens will be available sometime in Q4 2008, retailing between $2,199 and $3,399.
