With retail support.

As the exclusive supplier of home appliances for this season of The Block, BSH has been able to showcase the latest state-of-the-art appliances from its brand stable: Bosch, Siemens, Neff and Gaggenau.

BSH Home Appliances head of marketing communications, Jacqui Howard said, “Being able to offer four premium brands with award winning design, The Block is the perfect platform to showcase our portfolio of home appliances. Our brands cater for various target groups which is a great fit for the different apartment styles on the show that present our appliances in a real-life setting and inspires viewers for their own kitchen design.

“We are really excited to be able to extend The Block campaign to our retail partners. Now that the kitchens have been revealed, we have seen great advertising on our four brands in-store, in retail catalogues and digital platforms,” she added.

Appliance Retailer was taken through an exclusive tour of The Block apartments in Melbourne to see the appliances installed in each kitchen from the BSH brand portfolio.

The appliances used in this kitchen are by Neff and feature an array of innovative features including: The Slide&Hide door on the pyrolytic ovens that tucks under the oven cavity, and the CircoTherm feature, which allows users to cook, roast and bake on all levels simultaneously with completely different dishes.
