Awards 2012 Special: The finalists Technical Innovation Award Large Domestic Appliances


AEG MaxiSight TFT induction hob AEG’s MaxiSight is Europe’s very first hob to feature a colour TFT (Thin Film Transistor) display. AEG recognised the potential of a TFT screen that allows advanced, intuitive interaction and control. This improves the way people will interact with this top-of-the-range induction hob. DirekTouch controls further enhance the precise temperature control of induction cooking. With DirekTouch, one selects the power level for each zone with a single touch, and then fine-tunes it with a slider. There is also a bridge function on selected models to control two zones simultaneously with the same accuracy.

FAX: ONLINE: Large Domestic Appliances Elica Elica Olympus cooker hood

Olympus is the new concept of cooker hood, a ceiling-mounted item that extends down towards the hob, offering lighting and air extraction. Wizard is a conical shaped technopolymer extractor hood. Its distinguishing profile makes it an innovative and appealing design item, concealing its dual function: when set to standby, it is a large lamp, designed to illuminate the surrounding setting perfectly, and when it is turned on, the cooker hob inside it comes to life with a telescopic motion. It is available in four different colours: white, black, silver and orange, and it is operated remotely, with a remote control featuring a similar shape to the hood itself.
