‘Attention to Detail’ was the theme for ASKO at this year’s EuroCucina in Milan, as the brand showcased its latest appliances and hosted live cooking and wine pairing events featuring Michelin Star chef, Tom Aikens, and World’s Best Sommelier award winner, Andreas Larsson, among others.

ASKO sales director, Rob Butchatsky told Appliance Retailer, “Overall, we were really pleased with our Eurocucina 2024 and are grateful for the time spent with our retailer partners and thank them for their support at the show.

“Eurocucina 2024 was very well attended by our Australian colleagues, therefore the event afforded us with a great opportunity to showcase our newly launched products that have been recently introduced into the Australian market or are close to launching later this year including our gas on glass and Duo Fusion cooktops, as well as our Titanium laundry range.”

‘Attention to Detail’ includes the careful choice of materials and how they are used to the way the products look and the way they care for people, their possessions and the planet. This attention to detail is combined with a natural Scandinavian desire to blend form and function to deliver appliances that are both aesthetic and functional.

Products on the ASKO stand included the DW60 dishwasher range featuring ASKO’s UV Cleanse mode that eliminates up to 99.99999% of bacteria, fungi and viruses even when using a low temperature program such as Eco mode. Energy consumption is further reduced by the brushless BLDC motor and new filter system that enables better water flow, while the Auto Dose system adjust the amount of detergent to suit the degree of soiling, water hardness and program type.

Eight of the most important components in ASKO DW60 dishwashers are made of high quality stainless steel rather than plastic. The ASKO DW60 dishwasher has the world’s tallest loading height and largest loading capacity on the market.

The ASKO Celsius°Cooking™ system was also on show, enabling home chefs to avoid undercooking, overcooking or overboiling. The system features one of ASKO’s Premium induction hobs or Elevate hood-in-hob with integrated extractor fan. It also includes the Celsius°Cooking™ Probe, the smart cookware Celsius°Cooking™ Chef’s Pot and the Celsius°Cooking™ Frying Pan. The hob, pan, pot and probe communicate with each other using Bluetooth to ensure the right temperature and the right heat at the right time.

ASKO Wine Climate Cabinets were also on display, demonstrating how they take care of wine collections by providing optimum light conditions, UV light protection, humidity monitoring, and are vibration-free. As fully connected devices with various software functions, they also include a camera, mobile Connect Life app and connection to the Vivino database.

The user interface is equipped with a camera, that can identify individual bottles using the Vivino database that includes 12 million different wines. After scanning and identification, the wine can be added to the inventory, along with information regarding tasting, storage, readiness to drink and more.

ASKO Wine Climate Cabinets are available in four variants – the freestanding Wine Climate Cabinet with three temperature zones for up to 190 bottles, the Wine Aging Cabinet which acts either as a companion to the Wine Climate Cabinet or as a standalone piece for up to 261 bottles, the Compact Undercounter with one or two zones, and the single zone Undercounter Wine Climate Cabinet can hold up to 44 bottles, while the dual zone model holds up to 38 bottles.
