With the launch of the Global Cooksafe Coalition and commitment from major property group, Lendlease to end gas in kitchens in new developments by 2030 and all-electric retrofits of existing properties by 2040, Appliance Retailer reached out to major appliance brands for their view on the phase-out of gas.

“We all have a responsibility to do everything we can to ensure a brighter, more sustainable future. Here at Miele, we are continually working towards sustainable innovations that will make a difference in the world,” Miele Australia marketing director, Michele Laghezza told Appliance Retailer.

“For the past few years, one of our key business initiatives has been focusing on promoting the benefits of induction cooking because there is still a lack of awareness among consumers.

“Intrinsically efficient, incredibly quick to come to temperature and equipped with an array of built-in safety features, induction cooktops are the way of the future. Seeing the formation of Global Cooksafe Coalition and their contribution towards driving awareness around how induction cooktops can help to minimise power consumption within the home is exciting.”

Electrolux has seen the technology of its induction cooktops continue to rise over the years as an efficient, reliable, and precise way of cooking.

“We see induction growing in popularity with consumers as we continue to focus in developing new cooking experiences linked to induction technology,” Electrolux director product line – taste, Hass Mahdi told Appliance Retailer.

“Our commitment to Shape Living for the Better includes opportunities for emissions reductions in our product range, with induction being the most relevant technology in our future developments. We’re looking forward to hearing more as this conversation develops.”

The direction towards electric cooking is high on the agenda for Bertazzoni S.p.A.

“We have been doing a lot of research and development in this space to offer cookers with induction hobs and integrated vent solutions combined. With induction hob technology developing in leaps and bounds, we are keeping up with industry benchmarking with plans to expand the range for the Australian market in 2023,” general manager of sales, George Alikakos told Appliance Retailer.

Eurolinx has a comprehensive range of induction and Vitro ceramic cooktops from 60cm to 100cm, accommodating built-in and freestanding cooking categories. “Our plan is to expand on this range in the coming years to best cater consumer trends toward electric cooktops,” marketing manager, Daniel Bertuccio told Appliance Retailer.

More to come.
