why cooks choo Now nearly 40 years since its introduction to the UK, Neff’s CircoTherm® is still the gold standard for fan cooking systems. CircoTherm® saves time and energy and produces perfect, evenly cooked food every time.

efore CircoTherm® British cooks relied on the rather hit and miss, hotter at the top, cooler at the bottom principle offered by conventional ovens. CircoTherm® arrived as a new, versatile, exciting idea that delivered evenly cooked food at lower temperatures in less time and with no transfer of flavours - perfect for both traditional UK meals such as the roast dinner and for more ambitious cookery.

THE EXPERT VIEW

How it works

C

ircoTherm® works by drawing air in from the oven via a powerful fan. The air is heated up by an element and forced back into the oven through strategically placed ducts in the rear wall. By continuously circulating hot air around the oven, the selected temperature is reached more quickly and heat is more evenly distributed than in a conventional oven, saving time and energy as cooking temperatures and times are lower and there is no need to pre-heat. Because the hot air is focused directly on the food being cooked, the heat is evenly distributed on shelf positions 1, 3 and 4 while shelf 2 has a slightly lower temperature. This means three dishes can be cooked at the same time on three shelf levels without the flavours intermingling. The lower temperature setting means there is less splashing and spitting when cooking foods such as a roast joint, making the oven easier to clean. The other major benefits for lovers of the traditional UK roast is that the way and speed at which heat is delivered by CircoTherm® seals the meat very quickly, retaining juices and reducing shrinkage. CircoTherm® is at the heart of a multi-function cooking system that offers many different ways to produce perfect dishes. CircoTherrn® grilling, for example, means that chops, steaks and sausages don’t need to be turned as the hot air circulates around them to give a perfectly browned finish. Neff’s valuable online Cook’s Corner answers users questions about using the system - valuable support for new CircoTherm® owners. CircoTherm® is available across a wide range of Neff single and double ovens and is offered in both cavities on the U16E74 double oven.

“CircoTherm® is the original forced air fan cooking system that is an integral part of every Neff single and double oven. Neff introduced it to the UK almost 40 years ago (next year!) and it remains the original and the best fan system around. Generations of home cooks have relied on CircoTherm® to guarantee their cooking results and Neff has never let them down. Whatever their culinary expertise or experience, Neff owners can be confident in the knowledge that the CircoTherm® system is perfect for cooking all kinds of foods, from roasts and roulades to poultry and pies. There is no guess work involved and no complicated technology to understand. Simply turn to the CircoTherm® setting and the task is complete. That’s why customers keep coming back to Neff each time they move or re-fit their kitchen. It’s also why dealers continue to recommend Neff to their customers, time after time” Mike Jarrett Sales Director, Neff

Today he is MD of East Coast Fittings Ltd, one of the UK’s largest suppliers of furniture components, with an impressive headquarters in excess of 100,000 sq ft, a £17 million turnover and exciting plans for further growth.

ow did East Coast Fittings grow from early days as a supplier of fasteners to its present position as a premier supplier of components? “It all began in June 1980, when I left my previous employment to set up business as East Coast Fasteners Ltd,” recalls MD Derek Goodman. “Although I started the business from home, by November that year I was able, with my assistant Glen Coleman, now our Sales Director, to move into our first, modest, premises.” “Although the business was essentially engineering fastener based we did have the chance to deal with Leicester based Sharps Bedrooms and this led us into the supply of various bedroom furniture components such as handles, hinges and hanging rails. This enabled us to supply bedroom manufacturers elsewhere and created many new stock lines. At this stage we had very little to offer the kitchen industry. “When recession hit at the end of the 80s it was apparent that the business needed more volume and valuable items to survive and subsequently grow. Having become a distributor of Blum products we

were able to focus more onto the kitchen industry and new product lines followed quickly. Our hard work has been helped by good intuitive decision making, good fortune and being in the right place at the right time. This is exemplified by our entry into the made to measure door market. We had a customer in financial trouble whose business was manufacturing bedroom doors. By taking their doors to offset the debt we not only cleared the amount outstanding but also made a strong entry into the market by supplying these doors to our customer base. Mitre Framed doors followed soon afterwards and were subsequently manufactured in house. The addition of vinyl wrapped doors had made East Coast Fittings Ltd the premier distributor and manufacturer of made to measure doors in the UK market. "After some time away from the business, Glen Coleman returned in 1996, bringing with him valuable experience in the supply and manufacture of handles so the formula was now complete to build and grow the business we know today. The company changed its name to East Coast Fittings Ltd

in 1997 to better reflect its activity and the board was completed with Glen Coleman and Christopher and Victoria Goodman." Product innovation has always been a key element in the ethos of East Coast Fittings – as Derek explains. “Storage solutions have become a major item in new kitchens. Thanks to the numerous TV makeover and house moving programmes, the profile of kitchens in modern lifestyle has been raised considerably. Customers now want quality accessories, drawers and storage with soft closing motion essential. ECF can adapt rapidly to bring the latest quality components to the market. Our wide product portfolio enables us to offer the smaller kitchen and bedroom studios the opportunity to access the same quality components to compete with the big names in the industry.” Despite the tough economic times that are on everyone’s mind, Derek is far from downcast. “When the financial world unravelled in 2008/9, things were really tough but, as they say, that’s when the tough get going. The staff at ECF were superb. With everyone making the required

sacrifices we came through and were all stronger for the experience and have subsequently been able to repay everyone." Battening down the hatches in the face of adversity does not sit comfortably with Derek. “Standing still in business is not an option. We are always looking to develop new product and our open mind to new opportunities is a huge strength. We research the market place, identify weaknesses and deal with the issues. Our strategy is to continue to provide high quality components backed by great service throughout the business. Quick turnaround and reliable delivery dates are a must for our clients.” Growth is still very much on the agenda for East Coast Fittings Ltd with significant investment in IT and Machinery already under way. “With exciting new product ranges already in advanced development and plenty of market share to target we expect to breach the £20 million barrier any time soon, certainly a long way from the old Ford Granada," Derek concludes.

Handles are big business for East Coast Fittings Ltd. The range includes an extensive choice of styles and finishes.

MAGNETIC MAGIC Are consumers really convinced by induction? It certainly seems so, as most manufacturers are reporting improved sales – but that of course is from a low starting point as induction has only gained ground comparatively recently. Most industry experts agree that once a customer has tried induction there is no going back to older technology. Prices have fallen too and the introduction of continuous zones and other developments have brought a boost at the top of the market. Bill Miller of ATAG says induction sales have now overtaken traditional ceramic and represent around 40 percent of all sales – an interesting statistic from a company that is very strong in gas. At the top end he has seen growth in interest in products that offer something special – such as the HI1217S Panoramic induction hob. The long, narrow shape makes this hob very easy to use, as there is no need to reach across for pans at the back.

The HI1271S Panoramic four zone induction hob from ATAG has touch controls. 0208 247 3993 www.atag.co.uk

The famous Honeycomb hob from Kuppersbusch is now available in induction. It has four zones, nine power levels and touch controls. The standard set includes five honeycomb units made up of four induction zones and one control panel. 01235 861916 www.kuppersbuschuk.co.uk

Simona Bara, Product Marketing Manager Built in at Whirlpool also sees a bright future for induction. “The hob induction market is certainly a very exciting one in comparison to the general market trends. According to Gfk data Jan-Dec 2010 vs Jan-Dec 2009 the general hob market is still 2.4 percent negative, but the induction hob sector has shown very positive growth both in volume and value over the last three years and forms an important and mainstream sector of the hob market. Induction hobs have a 9.3 percent share of the total hobs market. From January to December 2010 induction has grown 29.3 percent versus the same period last year. This is extremely positive in the challenging market conditions of late and shows the tremendous enthusiasm in this sector of the market. This certainly presents an excellent opportunity that the retailer should grasp, with sales volumes of induction hobs likely to continue to increase in the future.”

Whirlpool has introduced a new induction hob (ACM 751) that has the additional high-end benefit of a modular induction surface with a Flexible Zone. This function links two zones together to provide a large cooking zone for pasta pans or a fish kettle. This is a feature with a very tangible benefit that adds value to the appliance and encourages trading up. 0208 649 5000 www.whirlpool.co.uk

De Dietrich has a long history in induction. The latest introduction is The Piano, which features totally zoneless induction technology with intelligent and intuitive options and a full colour touch screen control panel. The 250,000 pixel TFY touchscreen guides the user through the various options available including Expert, Piano and Solo cooking modes. Expert utilises the entire cooking zone and allows use of up to five differently sizes pans. Piano converts the hob into three separate cooking zones – so the user can, for instance, use the left zone for high temperature cooking, the right zone for simmering and the central zone for very gentle processes such as melting butter or chocolate. Solo features a single temperature across the entire zone. The Piano hob is endorsed by the triple starred chef Pierre Gagnaire. 01256 308067 www.dedietrich.co.uk

Metris is the top end offer from PWS and includes many interesting design ideas. The new Contour Curve uses flowing lines to create a wide peninsula unit that provides extra working space. Other new features in the range include a curved wall unit and curved internal drawer packs. Contour Curve is shown here in luxurious Matt Sand with striking blue granite worksurfaces. Key to the new concept is the wider curved system that gives space to integrate statement appliances and increases storage areas. Despite this, the idea will work in a relatively small footprint and has been designed with the typically small UK kitchen in mind. 01325 505555 www.metriskitchens.co.uk

Organic, natural colours were everywhere at the recent LivingKitchen show in Cologne. Pronorm showed Cubanit, where a touch of grey and some pearlescence has been added to a base green tone to give warmth and depth. It is shown here on Pronorm’s Y Line range, giving a softer look to this very modern style. “The way organic colours are now being interpreted for the home means that they combine modern styling with a timeless look to give customers a kitchen they will be happy with for a long time. Our Sterling Grey has a similar colour direction,“ says Jason Grinton of Pronorm. 07801 862691 www.pronorm.de

“A kitchen becomes luxurious when the materials used to create it are sleek to the touch and beautiful to the eye,” says Graham Hopper, UK Sales Director for Leicht. “The colour of the kitchen defines luxury – calm, muted colours give a feeling of elegance and transform the kitchen into the haven in the home. Size can also be equated to luxury. The Ermantingen kitchen has a huge island supported by just two weight bearing elements. It is finished in white eggshell lacquer and has a made to measure stainless steel worktop. Floor to ceiling cupboards create a cool glossy white wall surface and act as the only room divider in the whole living area.” 07802 402921

CLASSY COLOURS

The Blancozenar XL sink shown in Tartufo, Blanco’s new earth shade for 2011, part of the extensive range of high quality coloured Silgranite® PuraDur® sinks available from Blanco.

New for 2011, the Blancostrato Pro IF has a profile that sits almost flush with the work surface. Other features include a generous draining area, a raised tap ledge for storage at a slightly higher level, a capacious bowl with a contoured base and an optional silver coloured sliding glass chopping board.

blanco

The Blancolinus tap in Tartufo is just one of a choice of taps designed to co-ordinate with the ten colours in Blanco’s range of Silgranit® PuraDur® sinks.

The Blancozerox IF is part of Blanco’s hand finished Steelart collection. It has zero radius corners and is available in a wide variety of sizes.

A customer who has spent a lot of money on a fabulous kitchen does not want to spoil the finished effect with a low price, badly designed sink.

"

S

ervice from the retailer and the style of the furniture and fittings are the dominating factors in the design and supply of a luxury kitchen,” says Mike Heath, Marketing Manager at Blanco UK. “The relationship with the retailer is the key to the whole project – the customer has to feel secure. It is a very special bond and the bigger the investment in the kitchen, the more the bond is absolutely essential. Of course, the brand name is also valuable as long as there is a pedigree behind it. Companies like Blanco have a tried and trusted history stretching back to 1925 when the company was set up by Heinrich Blanc. He had a determination to manufacture high quality products which has never wavered.” Sleek, low profile IF flat edge sinks from Blanco sit almost flush to the worktop, giving consumers and designers a stylish alternative to undermounts. Now available across a large range of Blanco sink designs, the IF flat edge adds a touch of designer style to laminate worktops and looks just as good fitted into more expensive granite, composite or solid wood tops. The new low profile edge also offers genuine hygiene and maintenance benefits as there is no potential grime trap around the sink. The IF flat edge is a step in a design story that draws on over 80 years of product development where innovation and functionality go hand in hand. It is a story that includes many unexpected twists and turns, including triangular corner sinks that make the most of every square centimetre of worktop, round sinks with innovative accessories to maximise available space, square sinks with zero radius corners and a huge selection of rectangular sinks that answer the day to day needs of the modern household.

A wide choice of colours and designs makes the Blanco Silgranit® PuraDur® range the choice for customers looking for a luxury alternative to stainless steel. Tartufo, a subtle mushroom tone is the latest soft earth shade to be added to the range. It joins a palette that already includes the rich tones of Coffee and Cognac, soft Sand, Champagne and Jasmine and cool monochromatic Alumetallic, Anthracite, Silk Grey and White. There’s a choice of over 50 coloured sink designs in the Silgranit® PuraDur® collection, including both inset and undermounted models. It is a range that has drawn on the company’s heritage as leaders in high quality stainless steel sink design to attract a new audience of customers who want to introduce accent colour with the assurance of durability and easy-care qualities. Silgranit® PuraDur® has a satin smooth surface and the look and feel of natural stone. The surface repels water so limescale and stains can’t cling. The material is highly resistant to abrasion, impact, heat (to 280oC), acids and household chemicals and is 100 percent hygienic for food preparation. 0844 912 0100 www.blanco.co.uk

The sleek handleless Arosa range is from the Prime realm of the schüller.C collection. Designed to appeal to consumers looking for a combination of quality and sleek design, Arosa has a contemporary, streamlined feel with open end shelving, high gloss copper pearl fronts and innovative horizontal grip edge handles. This is a range that can be used to unite kitchen and living areas with style.

one for all The NX850 features individually configured flexible storage options. The solid dyed laminate door fronts feature red dot award winning letterbox handles. Banks of units with sliding doors provide a sleek look that conceals ample storage space.

Kitchen retailers face many challenges – and one of the biggest is selecting and offering a comprehensive portfolio that caters for consumers with very different aspirations and needs.

E

volving a collection with maximum appeal was a challenge that Schüller began to address in 2007. At that time the family-owned German manufacturer offered the Creativ and NX ranges. Creativ was the biggest seller, taking around 65 percent of production, but the ranges were close to each other in terms of design and price. At this point, Schüller had the option of two distinct choices. The first was the time honoured route of separating out the best products from the mid-market range and transferring them to the upmarket range to balance production. What this does is to sabotage one range and make it a more difficult proposition for retailers who then need to stock both ranges for maximum consumer appeal. Schüller chose a more unusual route by looking at NX and deciding to build one of the most comprehensive mid market ranges available. The end result was the schüller.C collection which included many of the top of the market ranges from NX. This was not a decision that was taken lightly. Schüller researched consumers and from the results came up with what they like to call "realms" that appealed to specific needs. These are Living, Prime, Image, Start and Feeling. Wayne Dance, MD of InHouse (the exclusive UK suppler of Schüller), says this was a brave step to take but was one the UK market was crying out for. "There really wasn’t a comprehensive range on the market where retailers could cater for everyone from those buying their first kitchen to those who wanted the ultimate dream kitchen." The NX range was relaunched as the next125 and handleless nextline – all made possible by a £6 million investment in new production lines. This allowed many ranges in the schüller.C collection, next125 and nextline to be built in a grid system. The next125 and nextline ranges became upmarket, competing against companies such as Poggenpohl and Siematic – but in line with the Schüller family’s belief that good design should not just be limited to those who can afford it, pricing remained reasonable. Schüller also firmly believes in the use of sustainable materials and green production – leading to the Design in harmony with Nature and Price strapline. The cover of this magazine and the advertisement for Schüller show the brand identity for nextline and next125. Those picturesque goats make a lasting impression and emphasise the design in harmony with nature message. 01661 842304, www.inhouseuk.net, www.inhousecaribbean.com, inhouseheadqtrs@aol.com KITCHEN JOURNAL JUNE 2011 • 23

perfectly fo An impressive S-shaped island created by Four Seasons Interiors makes a stand out style statement in this striking luxury kitchen. The designers used doors by Parapan® and DuPont ™ Corian® solid surfacing to give the curvy counter its sensual shape. 24 • KITCHEN JOURNAL JUNE 2011

L

arge spaces need a creative approach to transform what can be a bewilderingly vast area into something that is both beautiful and useful. This fabulous island unit is the perfect example of how to use advanced materials to successfully meet the creative challenges presented by a big, empty space. Any large, featureless area is a challenge for the kitchen designer. Long runs of countertops can be uninspiring and possibly difficult for the end user to live with – as Ian Sandford, MD of Four Seasons Interiors explains. “We deliberately introduced curves to draw the eye away from the harshness of the room. The organically shaped furniture beautifully softens the rectangular shape.”

It was the unique qualities of seamless thermoformable Corian® and high gloss acrylic Parapan® that allowed Ian to achieve this stunning result. “I chose these advanced materials because they offer the flexibility to be formed into a variety of shapes and have an exceptional quality of finish,” he explained. Cream White Parapan® was thermoformed into sensuous curves for the door fronts and Platinum Corian® was fabricated to reflect the same shape for the countertops. To provide contrast in colour and texture, Iroko hardwood was used for the elegant leaves of the island, resulting in a beautiful combination of top quality materials. "Despite the detailed nature of the curved door design and the micro

Designed by Four Seasons Interiors, this five metre island uses luxury materials from CD UK including Parapan® for the curved door fronts and Corian® for the worktop. Kitchens made using Parapan® cost from £20,000. 0113 294 1414 www.4seasons-design.co.uk

Hygienic, hard wearing and easy to maintain, Parapan® is available 18mm thick for cupboard fronts and drawers and 4mm for panelling and splashbacks. It can be thermoformed into any shape and comes in a choice of 23 UV stable colours including brights, pastels, white and black.

formed measurements involved, the Parapan® sections were spot on when it came to fitting,” Ian recalls. “Another plus was that with Parapan® all the doors could be fitted with invisible finger pulls. Handleless doors are the only option for such a sleek design. Imagine how different it would look if it was peppered with handles!” “Corian® also offered us a lot of creative scope.” he adds. “It was the only material we could have used to achieve this result. The five metre curved worktop just would not be the same if it had unsightly joints. The seamless sweep really is very impressive.” 0113 201 2240 www.cdukltd.co.uk www.parapan.co.uk

THE FINISHING TOUCH Sleek and contemporary, extractors from Air Uno are exactly what is required for a modern kitchen. Air Uno is another top quality range from CD UK and includes many designs that follow the current trend for extractors that are part of the overall decorative scheme. Air Uno’s F-Light range of hoods by Faber, including the Zoom shown here, are designed to look like elegant pendant light fittings and cleverly rise up when not in use. The range includes seven models in glass and stainless steel. 0113 201 2240 www.airuno.co.uk

Perfect fit with Pullboy The best selling Pullboy Z waste bin system for Blum Tandembox is available in most popular cabinet widths and heights, allowing kitchen designers to incorporate the bin into a cabinet without disrupting the clean lines of the layout.

Double for hinged doors A classic choice for hinged door cabinets, this bin has two 15 litre compartments and is designed for use in a 300mm wide cabinet. The internal compartments hang from a floor mounted frame and the bins slide out on full extension ball bearing runners for easy access.

Space saving Slim-Line The Wesco Slim-Line bin is door mounted so can be used where there is limited internal depth. It is perfect for use in under sink units and other small cabinets as the depth is just 210mm. Despite this, the bin has a 19 litre capacity. The outer case of the bin is available in stainless steel, white or grey. It is attached to the door and simply lifts off the bracket for emptying.

DL Components Ltd is the largest UK distributor for leading German waste bin manufacturer WESCO and currently offers over 80 different types of built in bin. Established in Germany in 1867 the WESCO brand stands for innovative development in built in waste bin technology to meet the highest standards of quality and functionality. The company produced the first ever classic round bin for built in cabinets – a model still popular today but now equipped with cam opening and an Antibloc system to protect the door. Despite the cuts, many local authorities still demand that rubbish should be separated for recycling. As refuse is generally sorted in the kitchen, it makes sense to have an easily accessible separator bin close to hand. Built-in bins are the ideal solution as they are out of sight (and out of reach of children and pets) but quick and easy to access.

Larger capacity bins

Worktop wonder Food waste can be scraped straight from the preparation board into the handy Ergo-Master worktop mounted bin from Wesco. Ideal for use with solid surface worktops, the Ergo-Master fits unobtrusively into the worksurface, leaving just the fixing ring and stainless steel lid visible. The ring is mounted into or onto the work surface and fixed in place with adhesive. It holds the plastic 15cm diameter bin below, which has a capacity of 11 or 13 litres and can be used for organic or household waste. The inner soft rubber ring slopes towards the centre so even wet organic waste can be pushed from the worktop straight into the bin. A tightly fitting stainless steel lid with a recessed, easy grip handle gives a flush finish and ensures that odours cannot escape.

Kitchen designers have struggled in the past to find a large capacity integrated recycling bin as an alternative to a big single bin as the largest available have been 40 or 50 litres. Now with the Wesco Pullboy Z range, LDL can offer bins for 450 and 500mm depth cabinets in 300600mm widths in capacities from 36 to a massive 84 litres. The bins run on Blum Tandembox soft close runners so they close smoothly and gently and maintain the clean lines as the rest of the kitchen. New for 2011 is the Servo-drawer bin that incorporates the Pullboy Z bin. This is effectively the same bin combined with the touch control electric drawer than can be opened by a light touch on the front with the hand or knee – perfect when your hands are full or dirty.

More information: TAKE A PEEK AT PEKA LDL is also the sole UK agent and distributor for PEKA, the Swiss manufacturer of high quality wirework storage solutions and associated accessories. New for 2011 is a round large capacity bin that takes a bin liner and is suitable for under cabinet applications.

The bin top has a hollowed top shelf that can be used for storing detergents and sponges. 01780 753407 www.thesourcebookdirect.co.uk

Bin systems from the Naber Selecta Cabby and Cox ranges are quick to install and easy to remove for cleaning inside the cupboard.

get organised Essetre’s new sink base drawer system makes great use of a space that can otherwise be a disorganised mess.

E

ssetre has re-engineered its high under sink drawer into a single structure, which is easier to install. The sponge holder high drawer is a metal structure with plastic partition trays to hold small items such as pan scrubbers etc. The rear part can be accessorised with two plastic trays with stainless steel covers that can be positioned to avoid the drain from the sink. The new Essetre waste bin high drawer comes complete with bins and trays to hold cleaning materials and other household essentials. Combining the sponge holder high drawer and the waste bin high drawer make the sink base a useful storage element in the kitchen. 07764 776825 or 01845 578210

The under sink high drawer has a divided tray for smaller items and two lidded sections.

The bin drawer has a section for cleaning materials plus lidded bins for separating waste.

ESSETRE ADVANTAGES ● No wooden or chipboard elements so no danger of water ingress. ● The metal back has been eliminated so does not cause problems with the U-bend from the sink. ● The new sponge holder has trays that can be fitted to the rear part and positioned depending on the size of the drains. ● The new waste bin high drawer has been rationalised to make better use of space. ● Installation costs are reduced. The only element that has to be handled during the assembly phase is the sides.

WASTE NOT WITH WHIRLPOOL Designed to keep food fresher longer the CoolDeluxe range from Neff features base installation. This allows an A++ energy rating without losing capacity (normally thicker insulation is needed for higher energy ratings so capacity is reduced). Neff has also changed the interior design of built under fridges. A recessed vegetable container, additional full width pull out drawer and deeper drawer trays mean that consumers benefit from more storage space. 0844 892 9033 www.neff.co.uk

playing it cool Reducing food waste and saving energy are key issues in cooling and freezing. Bosch has unveiled a brand new collection of energy efficient frost free refrigeration with A+ and A++ ratings. Key appliances in the new collection include the GIN38A55GB tall built in upright frost free freezer with electronic controls, five drawers and two flaps with glass shelves in between. A matching fridge is available to create a large cooling centre. The Logixx GIN32A55GB is a new frost free built in fridge freezer with SoftClose doors. The Logixx range has had an interior design upgrade with LED lighting and an A++ energy rating. 0844 892 8979 www.bosch-home.co.uk

Hotpoint and Indesit are launching a brand new range of freestanding, no frost 60cm fridge freezers incorporating advanced new technology that extends food shelf life, provides more internal storage space and saves energy. The new Hotpoint appliances incorporate Air Tech Evolution technology that pushes cool air into the fridge through multiple apertures that run across the full height of the cabinet. This extends the storage life of fresh foods. New Indesit appliances incorporate an Air Flow system that acts in a similar way. The range includes many A+ rated and the A++ Ultima FFUL1820 and FFUL2023. 08000 921922 www.hotpoint.co.uk www.indesit.co.uk

Whirlpool has put serious thought into energy saving and reducing food waste. Research carried out by the company for its Pocket and Planter Survey reveals that, although consumers say the environment is important, this concern does not always translate into sales. ● Only 39 percent are replacing old appliances with new, lower energy models even though an old fridge costs twice as much to run as a new one. ● Only 10 percent switch the fridge off when they are on holiday. Whirlpool is tackling this with innovations to improve energy saving. Selected models will have new integrated front positioned LED lighting on both built in and freestanding models. The company has also been looking at food conservation. Extending the quality and lengthening storage times is the aim of 6th Sense Fresh control technology, which has been achieved through strict control of temperature and humidity levels in the entire cabinet, rather than in just one drawer. If humidity is too low, food loses weight and valuable nutritional elements and if it is too high mould will grow. Whirlpool says that 6th Sense Fresh Control will keep ham fresh for four days longer, spinach for up to three days and pears up to 17 days – worth considering in these days of rising food prices. There are some interesting statistics to support their savings claim. According to WRAP the average household wastes £420 worth of food per year. Around 46 percent of this is fresh or minimally processed. Whirlpool claims that its Green Generation fridge freezer will cut the amount wasted and bring savings of up to £193.20 a year. 0208 649 5000 www.whirlpool.co.uk.

The WBC 3546 A+ rated fridge freezer from Whirlpool has 6th Sense Fresh Control technology to reduce food waste and an anti bacterial filter with Microban. The frost free freezer section has useful door storage.

Carron Phoenix has agreed to be the official sponsor partner for Everything But The Kitchen Sink, who will be raising money via a cycling marathon for the MS Society Cymru. As well as a corporate donation, Carron has given two of its Contessa stainless steel sinks, which the fundraisers will strap, to their bicycles for the 500 mile trip from Cardiff to Amsterdam. The six fundraisers will divide into two teams and race against each other to raise a target sum of £10,000. Last year the team raised £7,500 for Water for Africa by hiking from Cardiff across Europe to climb the Atlas mountains in Morocco. Despite their name, the fundraisers have no connection with the kitchen industry. Fundraiser Vincent Bailey said, “None of us has done any cycling since we were 15 and we have yet to work out the right way to fix the sinks to the bikes, but it is a challenge and we are all about the unconventional. The sinks are a quirky yet meaningful visual metaphor for us to carry around and we are delighted to have support from Carron Phoenix.

Celebrations for Beko

Bosch and Siemens refrigerators and freezers are correctly labelled, claims BSH after pan European testing carried out by CECED and the EU. In contrast, numerous competitor appliances were found to be incorrectly labelled. CECED initiated and implemented the ATLETE project together with the EU in 2009. The aim was to improve market surveillance in the member states of the EU and increase the awareness of energy efficiency as a selling point. The results were presented during the EU Sustainable Energy Week in Brussels.

Beko has celebrated 21 years of trading in the UK with a three day event at Five in Farnborough and the launch of new designs in refrigeration, home laundry and cooking. Opening with an introduction from keynote speakers including new UK MD Ragip Baciolglu, guests were escorted into Beko Square where roomsets showed various new products. Beko showcased a fresh look across its entire portfolio. The latest design style includes new crystal clear interiors on cooling and freezing appliances, easy to use ergonomic control panels for washing machines and tumble dryers and a new platform for cooking that includes larger ovens with excellent energy ratings. “We have achieved so much in the last 21 years and we would like to thank all of our customers for their on-going support,” commented Ragip Balcioglu. “I am very proud to have worked for Beko for the past 14 years and have seen the progress the brand has made, achieving the number one position in both cooling and freestanding cooking as well as the number one spot in washing machines."
