Perfect Kitchens For Entertaining

  
  
  
  
  

Social Entertaining Party Kitchen Dining

Sunday brunches. Weekday dinners. Drinks and nibbles before party. Always something happening at your place? Then you must be an awesome entertainer, and likely a good cook too!

For those who take entertaining seriously, have you considered designing your kitchen around your party and guests? At the heart of a perfect social kitchen are conversation and food, plus of course having good looking appliances never fail to amp up hosting scores!

Check out our top tips on creating the perfect kitchen for entertaining:

Layout

When it comes to design, opt for open plan space. The lack of physical separation between cooking, dining, alfresco and living area will encourage a seamless interaction, and it also gives your guests more room to move around. Besides, there’s probably nothing worse than chopping onions alone in one room, and hearing your guests’ hearty laughter over clinking glasses in the next room.

Island Benchtop

A kitchen island is an effective way to increase your bench space and it can also be used to house a sink and dishwasher or even a cook top. Not to mention, having a few bar stools around the bench gives everyone a spot to relax and chat while visiting the cook. This way you won’t miss out what Jono recently got up to or the Smiths’ latest adventure in the outback while you babysit that risotto.

Refrigeration / Beverage Centre

If you really love to cook and entertain, you shouldn’t settle for anything less than a Sub-Zero fridge. Sub-Zero hand makes top-of-the-line refrigeration where they combine amazing design with unrivalled functionality. Their unique technology enables fresh food to stay fresher and frozen food to be preserved longer which means you can cut down on grocery shopping. We also love the french door design with a generous space to put everything - perfect for big pots or left over wide platters!

Additionally, no entertaining kitchen is complete without a wine storage or beverage centre. Have one next to your fridge for your guests’ easy access to cold beers and drinks.

Warming Drawers

This comes in handy for the avid entertainer to keep food warm and ready to serve at the right time. Wolf’s built-in warming drawers can go up to 93oC, making it a perfect alternative oven to slow roast meats and vegetables before serving.

Social Entertaining Kitchen Host (5)High-end Espresso Machine

A high-end coffee machine like this Rocket Giotto Evolution is often a great conversation starter. It also gives you an excellent opportunity to show off your barista skills by making beautiful cafe quality espresso for guests in your own home. Extra points if you mastered latte art!

Social Entertaining Kitchen Host (6)

TV

For footie nights and season finale parties, having a TV in the kitchen means you can bring the action to where the food is. It’s a casual way for everyone to get engaged and involved without being too engrossed.

Social Entertaining Kitchen Host (7)
Dishwasher

After hosting family and friends, the last thing you want to do is make an even bigger mess when it's time to tackle the aftermath. Consider getting a high performing dishwasher such as Siemens for your overwhelming post-party dishes and glassware.

There you have it, the essentials of a perfect entertaining kitchen. For five decades, E&S Trading has been a home entertainer’s paradise.

Unmistakably Miele, The New Generation H6000 Range

  
  
  
  
  

Miele H6000

Miele. Immer besser, or forever better.

This is the tagline and philosophy Miele had lived up to since the German company was founded in 1899. Being better means constant innovation, something that Miele has proven time and again their uncompromising commitment to.

More recently Miele established a new benchmark in kitchen appliances with the launch of the new Generation H6000. Designed with passion and the user in mind, H6000 represents excellence in technological advancement and design aesthetic.

Miele Gen6000 pure line

Miele Generation H6000

H6000 range comprises over 200 new appliances, from conventional ovens and steam ovens to coffee machines, cooker hoods and microwaves. The collection comes in two distinct styles – Pure Line and Contour Line – each created to complement different kitchen design.

Pure Line comes in a range of stunning new colours including Obsidian Black, Brilliant White and the unique Mink brown. With a high proportion of glass used in the appliance façade and a stylish, clean look, Pure Line stands out as an outstanding range for the contemporary kitchen. Contour Line on the other hand integrates best with a traditional kitchen aesthetic. The interplay of glass and stainless steel gives it a timeless elegant look.

Besides style and colour, H6000 also offers a choice between rotary or the new M-Touch control. Interface reminiscent of a smartphone, the M-Touch display is self-explanatory and intuitive in operation. Browse the menu much like your iPhone by simply swiping or scrolling with the tip of a finger.

Miele H6000 m Touch

When it comes to combination options, the built-in appliances offer a flexible arrangement. Whether you like to stack things vertically, spread them out in a horizontal array, configure in a block of four or T-shape, H6000 appliances are designed to look completely harmonious.

Miele H6000 configuration

All built-in kitchen appliances are of the same height. Various and customised combinations are possible

Miele have also included some brilliant new features to make preparing food easy and efficient. On the microwaves you’ll find selections of automatic programmes and even a one touch popcorn button. The new PyroFit technology in ovens has us jumping for joy now that we no longer have to remove side racks and telescopic runners during pyrolytic cleaning process. Plus the coffee machine is an absolute joy to use with its built in sensor which detects the height of your coffee cup and adjusts the coffee spout height accordingly.

Miele products are manufactured with the highest quality and workmanship. No parts are sourced from anywhere else other than a Miele factory, which is probably why a Miele last for years and years!

Scholtès Induction Hob

  
  
  
  
  

In 1979, Scholtès revolutionised the art of cooking by inventing the first induction cooktop. While a marvellous innovation at that time, the technology and resources required to manufacture one costed an arm and a leg. Fast track three decades later, today Scholtès is able to bring forth the beauty and benefits of induction technology to professional chefs and domestic cooks around the world. Their celebrated range of induction hobs has established a new benchmark for the industry.

One of the best things about using induction cooking is the superior performance compared to traditional forms of cooking. For example 2 litres of water takes only takes 4.5 minutes to reach 95oC, compared with 9 minutes for traditional glass ceramic –  that’s 40% faster! If you’re tired of waiting for big ol’ pasta pot to boil, Scholtès induction hob will be your new best friend.

scholtes induction hob cooktop (2)

Unique to Scholtès is the automatic pot detection feature when you place cookware on the cooktop. The hot plate will only switch on when in contact with a pot or pan with a magnetic field. This built-in safety feature also prevents the hotplate from activating when small metallic objects such as garlic crusher or pepper grinder are accidentally placed on the cooktop.

When you need to bring food to high temperatures quickly, the booster function will give you the extra power needed. Boost works by drawing power from other zones to the selected hotplate for 4 minutes, before resetting to the original selected power setting. Especially useful for bringing water to boil if you need to make that hot tea right away.

scholtes induction hob cooktop (3)

Two other practical features that we love about Scholtès induction hob is the residual heat indicator and spill sensor. The unique residual heat indicators give you a heads up by displaying a “H” if the cooktop glass is still considerably warm to the touch, or a low cap “h” if the cooktop has already cooled down considerably. Spill sensor as the term suggests will switch off the hob power automatically if a spill is detected, putting a stop to food burning into the cooking surface.

Scholtès induction hob is perfect in every respect and detail, from elegance in design and materials to the technological innovation. For a more interactive demonstration, check out the video below by Manu Feildel, brand ambassador for Scholtès.

E&S Trading is the exclusive retailer for Scholtès appliances in Victoria. Visit our showroom today and talk to us about the most suitable Scholtès induction hob to suit your unique needs.

Neff 2013 New Range

  
  
  
  
  

Neff Kitchen

In 1877, Carl Neff founded his coal oven plant in Bretten, Germany, with a revolutionary idea – his kitchen appliances will not be focused on technology, rather on the people who use them. His commitment to creating quality products which are uniquely customer-centric enabled his company to grow very quickly, and today, Neff has cemented its position as a market leader in Europe.

Neff ovens are exceptional. Their latest 2013 range sees an improved comeback of their trademark Slide & Hide ovens, as well as the unique VarioSteam ovens. The B46E74N3AU Slide & Hide oven is a top-of-the-line model to look out for if you’re passionate about cooking. The 67 litre cavity comes with over 12 cooking functions including their innovative CircoTherm cooking mode. This unique cooking technology allows the oven to heat up rapidly and needs little, or no preheating.

Neff Oven Slide & Hide Single (1)

CircoTherm works by drawing air in from the oven via a powerful fan. The air is heated and forced right back into the oven cavity through strategically placed ducts in the rear wall. With this system, a complete 3-course meal can be cooked at the same time on the three shelf levels without transfer of flavours. This method of forced air cooking continues to be the benchmark for all fan ovens.

Neff Oven Slide & Hide Single (2)

B46E74N3AU also boast the unique Slide & Hide door, one of the favourite features of a Neff oven. Never have to worry about the door getting in the way when you reach into the oven; spills on glass door are a thing of the past. Neff has come up with a clever solution of retracting doors right under the oven, making the access to the oven cavity completely uninhibited. No other brand in the market has this brilliant design.

When it comes to steaming, Neff has the B46C74N3AU VarioSteam combi-oven to satisfy the most demanding professional chefs and domestic cooks.  Their unique VarioSteam technology pumps hot vapour into the cavity, giving your dishes the much needed moisture and humidity. Adjusting the intensity of the steam is as easy as a touch of the button. You can alternate between three steam settings to create a more succulent and tender dish.Neff B46C74N3 VarioSteam Oven

Neff’s ovens are coated with TitanEnamel making it scratch and acid-resistant to food acids. A quick wipe with a damp sponge and a little detergent is sufficient to keep the oven clean after normal operation.

To see a full range of Neff ovens, visit any one of our showrooms today. Open Monday to Sundays, our friendly E&S sales consultants are ever ready to answer all your Neff questions.

Siemens New speedMatic Dishwasher & freeInduction Cooktop

  
  
  
  
  

Siemens speedmatic dishwasher 01

Siemens stands for outstanding engineering achievements. Having been around for more than 160 years, Siemens has mastered the qualities of precision, perfection and creativity, and brilliantly integrated them into their appliances. With their extensive list of unique innovations and technological advancements, it’s little wonder that Siemens is Germany and Europe’s number one brand for built-in appliances.

Whether it’s integrated ovens or full-size fridges, Siemens products all boast superior innovative features. Their latest innovation - the new range of speedMatic dishwashers are no exception. Siemens has come up with the world’s most energy efficient dishwasher with the discovery of Zeolith drying technology.

Siemens speedmatic dishwasher 04

Zeolith, a class of naturally occurring minerals has the astonishing ability to absorb water molecules and then release them as energy. And who better than Siemens geniously thought of integrating that into a dishwasher! The results? Dishwashers that dry dishes effectively in less time, and using less energy. Even better, the minerals are completely self-renewable and will not wear off for the lifetime of the machine. Big tick for environmental sustainability!

Siemens speedmatic dishwasher 02

Another feature we love about speedMatic dishwasher is the interior mood lighting that is cleverly designed to turn on when you open your dishwasher door. The LED emotionLight bathe the interior of the dishwasher in beautiful blue light so you can show off your sparkling clean glassware to guests who come wandering into your kitchen.

Siemens speedmatic dishwasher 03

Because speedMatic dishwashers are so quiet, sometimes it’s hard to tell if the wash is done. That’s why Siemens developed the timeLight for fully-integrated models which beams the remaining time and programme information onto the floor. This simple yet elegant solution provides the finishing touch to the remarkable design.

One other notable feature about speedMatic dishwasher is the introduction of the new varioDrawerPlus. Unlike most ordinary cutlery drawers, varioDrawerPlus has a v-shape design and drop-down sides, perfect for chucking in soup ladles, salad servers and similar long untensils.

Siemens dedication to product research also extends into their new range of cooktop – freeInduction. If you have already switched from gas to induction cooking, good on you! If you’re still wondering what the hype is all about, Siemens freeInduction cooking will open your door to a whole new and better cooking experience.

Siemens freeInduction 03

With freeInduction cooking, there is no open flame. When cookware with a magnetic base is placed on the cooktop, the coil below the ceramic glass surface creates a powerful magnetic field, inducing a current and generating heat instantly and directly to the pan.

While most other induction cooktops comes with predefined cooking zones and pot size limitations, Siemens freeInduction gives you the freedom of arranging up to four cookware pieces any one time without restriction. The innovative surface induction automatically detects pot size, shape and position, leaving you with maximum freedom in your cooking.

So this means for dinner you could be boiling pasta in one pot, making the sauce in another, and cooking your veggies next to them; all these cookware can sit anywhere on the freeInduction cooktop. You could also pick the pans up and move them around without needing to reprogram the settings.

Siemens freeInduction 02

When it comes to controls, Siemens understands most of us are cooks, not mechanics. They have kept the controls and setting as simple and straightforward as possible. A simple touch or swipe on the full colour interface allows you to select the cookware, adjust heat level or set a timer. And that is pretty much all there is to do because everything else is automatic.

If you need to move your cookware around, the power transfer settings technology will automatically detect the shift of the cookware including the power and timer settings. What’s more, the cooking status is always displayed throughout the entire cooking process so you know you are constantly in control.

Siemens freeInduction 01
freeInduction cooktop not only looks great and functions remarkably, they are easy to clean. Because the ceramic glass surface is only heated by the residual heat from your cookware, you never have to worry about spills baking and burning on the surrounding. Simply wipe away the splatter while you cook.

With a tradition of continuous technological research and relentless innovation, Siemens is dedicated to bringing beautiful, high performing appliances to the passionate home and professional cooks of Australia.

Siemens home appliances are exclusively available at E&S Trading in Victoria. To find out more about Siemens products, speak to one of our sales consultants today!

What’s New From SMEG

  
  
  
  
  

 

SMEG 2013 new kitchen cooking appliances product  launch

Based in Guastalla, Italy, Smeg is one of the most innovative technology brands when it comes to kitchen appliances. They have devoted a great deal of time in pursuit of design excellence and ever-improving cooking techniques.

Recently, Smeg has been brewing up a whole new kitchen evolution with their release of innovative products and cutting-edge technology.  With their introduction of new oven control interface, launching the world’s first freestanding pyro-cooker with induction hob, and rolling out domestic dishwashers with 16mins cycle, Smeg has clearly outshined the competition and left other brands trailing in their dust.


S-Logic Digital Display Takes The Guesswork Out Of Ovens

S logic Smeg SFPA140 (2)

Let’s start off with ovens. Smeg’s reputation for technological advancement doesn’t stop at Thermoseal. Their latest innovation is the S-Logic digital displays, launched with a new generation of built-in smart ovens.

S logic Smeg SFPA140

S-Logic interface makes oven simple to understand, logical to use and delivers pin-point accuracy to any dish. Everything you need to see and know is now displayed on the screen. Function-selection, cooking time, temperature, shelf position and pre-heating have become either automatic or self-explanatory. And with the extra large one-touch control animated display, you can even skip the reading glasses altogether!

S logic Smeg SFPA140 (3)

S-Logic displays are available in Smeg’s latest Classic and Linear range. The beautiful SFPA140 model in particular spots a mirror-finish and is available with pyrolytic cleaning function. Although assembled in Italy, SFPA140 has been configured to Australian culinary tastes. Popular fish varieties have been included in the menus and the oven understands Australian definitions of rare, medium and well-done. The oven also boasts 18 oven functions and includes memory space for 10 user recipes.


Stunning 90cm Pyrolytic Oven

Smeg’s new 90cm built-in pyro-oven is undoubtedly in a class of its own. Right now in the market, there are only a handful that offers you a roomy 90 litres in oven capacity with the self-cleaning function.

SAP3900X

The new SAP3900X has a perfectly-controlled and stable cooking environment thanks to Smeg’s unique Thermoseal system. Temperature fluctuations are greatly minimized during cooking which means your food gets cooked quicker, using less energy. With 10 cooking functions including proofing, defrosting and food warming, plus 50 ‘smart sense’ programs and 10 additional personal programs, SAP3900X makes it easy and possible to whip up any gourmet dishes.

Similar to other Smeg oven models, the door comes with cool door technology and is safe to the touch even during the pyrolytic cleaning process. This makes it safe for families with young children, and helps your kitchen remain cool and comfortable throughout the usage.


Smeg’s Double Oven Now In Pyro

Smeg’s classic 60cm double oven has been given an upgrade and now features pyrolytic cleaning function.

dospa38x med

The DOSPA38X still retains its former good looks and perfect proportions but is now quadruple glazed in the main oven. In just ninety minutes, Smeg’s pyrolytic cleaning function can heat up the main oven cavity to 500oC, instantly melting away grease and waste.

Smeg’s double oven features a 79 litre main oven plus a smaller 42 litre auxiliary oven, giving you great cooking flexibility.


Meet The New Victoria Kitchen

Inspired by Smeg’s very first “Elizabeth” cooker produced in 1948, the new Victoria range captures the essence of classic 1950’s style aesthetics. 

Smeg Victoria kitchen timeless classic gas cooker (2)

The Victoria cooker not only looks beautiful, it features state-of-the-art cooking technology – combining vintage style with modern-day convenience. Measuring 110cm in width, this SMEG cooker is the perfect investment for anyone who adores cooking.

Multiple dishes are easy to prepare with the seven gas cooking zones (including a high-power wok burner), and the double oven configuration means you can be cooking a roast in the main oven, while a chocolate muffin bakes away in the other. Dinner and dessert – too easy!

Smeg Victoria kitchen timeless classic gas cooker (3)

Each oven has a roomy 68 litre capacity, and six cooking functions including eco fan-forced baking, convection, a baker’s function, and an electric grill. Both ovens reach full heat within ten minutes and deliver accurate and consistent temperatures. And for people who love pizza, an integrated SMEG pizza stone profile has been built into the base of each oven.

The oven interior of the Victoria cooker is treated with an Ever-Clean enamel surface and comes with Vapour Clean function. It also features triple-glazed doors with removable glass.

Smeg Victoria kitchen timeless classic gas cooker (4)

And now on to the cooktop; the seven-zone gas hob features an ultra powerful wok burner, and each burner has been fitted with a flame failure device for maximum safety. We also love the fact that a Teppanyaki plate can be placed over two of the burners to create a high-heat griddle for meat, seafood and vegetables.

Smeg Victoria kitchen timeless classic gas cooker (5)Originally available in traditional cream and black, Victoria appliances are now offered in silver, and a variety of pastel shades which further enhance the high-quality materials and exclusive design of each Smeg product.


The World’s Only 16min Domestic Wash

Besides cooking, Smeg also offers a coveted range of dishwashers. Smeg has released its revolutionary new semi-pro, high-speed dishwasher that is capable of completing a full wash in 16 minutes using just 12 litres of water.

Smeg fastest dishwasher DWAFIP364

The new Smeg DWAUP364X Domestic Pro is a genuine step up in terms of technology with no other domestic dishwasher brands able to compete with. The breakthrough behind the superfast wash is the innovative Dual Core system.

The system utilises two motors – similar to existing Smeg models – but the wash motor is a larger 2,000 watts, capable of operating at variable speeds. It also comes with two 1,800 watt inline elements to heat the water, twice the industry norm. With all these supercharged power and energy, Domestic Pro is able to mirror the high speeds and standards of Smeg’s commercial grade dishwashers and lend you a big hand when you need a load washed in a hurry.

Additionally, Smeg also introduced a new feature to the dishwasher - the FlexiDuo basket. This upper basket provides an unrivalled degree of versatility to the appliance as it’s able to split into two sections and have either section slide under the other. If you entertain often or own very tall-stemmed glasses, you will understand and appreciate this brilliant innovation of freeing up space for the basket below.


Smeg’s New Outdoor Grill – Packed With Power & Precision

And for those of you who love a relaxed Aussie barbie, Smeg has got a power-packed outdoor BBQ to give you even cooking results with minimal flare-ups.

Smeg outdoor BBQ BIBQ1205AF (1)

Smeg took their craft of creating beautiful, high-quality kitchen appliances outdoor and put together a marine-grade stainless steel and rust-free BBQ range. This is one of the most powerful barbeques on the market, giving you a total of 67.5 Megajoules per hour over its five burners.

The grill comes with a hotplate and also features an integrated clean oil collection system. You will find the excess fats and grease drain into a reservoir at the side of the unit, making the grill so easy to clean and maintain.

Smeg outdoor BBQ BIBQ1205AF (2)

Choose from two designs: the BIBQ1205AH model which features a double-insulated hood, or the BIBQ1205AF model which has a sleek lid (in place of the hood) that doubles as a splashback when the barbeque is in use. The laser-etched control panel for both models are located on the right, perfectly blending into the clean, sophisticated design and also ensuring it will not wear off over time.


Smeg’s range of new products will be available in our showroom later this year. For more details, speak to one of our consultants at your nearest E&S Trading showroom.

Scholtès MultiPlo - The Most Versatile Cooking Appliance

  
  
  
  
  

We all want that dream kitchen - filled with every remarkable cooking appliance money can buy, you can easily serve up dishes steamed, roasted, deep fried, boiled or even teppanyaki style. But let’s face it, most of us either don’t have the luxury of space or lack the ambition to invest in more than a few essential cooking appliances.

So wouldn’t it be nice if we could afford just one appliance that did everything? Combining the functions of an oven, cooktop, deep fryer, steamer, slow cooker and turn it into one outstanding equipment?

The answer is the Scholtès MultiPlo.

Scholtes MultiPlo (2)

This award winning product is exclusive from Scholtès and harnesses the power and control of induction cooking to allow up to 5 different types of cooking - deep frying, roasting, boiling, steaming and slow cooking.

With two separately controlled zones, the innovative MultiPlo gives you the option to cook two different dishes simultaneously. This means you could be steaming fish on one side, and deep-frying fritters on the other. The two zones can also be used together to create a large cooking area for bigger dishes.

Scholtes MultiPlo

Multiplo also comes with an inbuilt cooking plate for your teppanyaki steaks. The plate can reach up to 240 degrees in temperature and has a specially designed channel that catches juices as not to stew the food.

The best part about Multiplo is the cleaning; afterall what good is anything if you can’t chuck it into the dishwasher? All vessels, baskets and components are made from dishwasher-safe stainless steel, and the touch controls need only be wiped with a damp soapy cloth to keep them looking like new.

Scholtes MultiPlo with Manu Feildel

If you need some ideas on MultiPlo cooking, celebrity chef Manu Feildel can show you a recipe or two as he cooks up a storm using Scholtès appliances. Manu have signed an exclusive sponsorship deal with Scholtès that will see Manu use and promote high performance ovens and cooktops. Follow the video below and see how easy it is to serve up a roasted lamb shank with creamy potatoes and green peas using MultiPlo.

MultiPlo is exclusively available at E&S Trading in Victoria.
