Bertazzoni has unveiled its latest kitchen appliance innovations at this year’s Eurocucina in Milan.  

The Bertazzoni Professional Series Air-Tec 90cm freestanding cooker is the world’s first three-in-one appliance combining an electric oven, an induction cooktop, and a 10-speed built-in downdraft ventilation system.

The oven has 11 functions including convection, baking, grilling and fast preheat and features a triple-glazed cool touch glass door and soft close hinges. The cooktop has four zones with multi-zone technology to combine two zones into a single zone to accommodate larger pots or a griddle plate.

The integrated ventilation has 10 speeds including an automatic function to adjust the suction power according to the power level of the cooktop. The downdraft vent cover features the Bertazzoni logo in brass, the brand’s signature design feature.

Air-tec cookers are available in Stainless Steel, and a selection of luxury car automotive paint colours including Black, Red, Orange, White, and Yellow, plus a special new colour, Carbonio. Air-Tec will be sold through display stockist retailers only.

Bertazzoni also confirmed that it is manufacturing new induction cooktops in-house with two models available, Premium and Super Premium. The latter offers a TFT touch display and Bertazzoni Assistant smart technology which selects the sequence of cooking functions, temperatures and times for perfect results.

Four new freestanding cookers will also come with induction cooktops. Select models will be available in the exclusive automotive paint finish in the Professional Series and two colours in the Heritage Series range. There will be single and double oven options available in 90cm and 100cm, as well as a triple oven configuration in 100cm, anticipated for launch in September 2024. 

The Bertazzoni Heritage Series will be available in a new Chrome Gold finish from the second half of 2024 as the Copper finish is phased out. Chrome Gold will be available across all Heritage built-in ovens as standard with the option to customise Gold, Copper or Titanium on Heritage freestanding cookers and matching canopy rangehoods.

“At this year’s Eurocucina, we showcased Italian design presenting new concept colours, textures and finishes in gold, chrome and coloured stainless steel. We believe design trends are changing and customers are looking for alternatives to black and stainless with texture and personality. We’ve certainly filled that brief beautifully,” Bertazzoni Australia managing director, Mark Tragear said.

Bertazzoni Australia will be exhibiting at the Kitchen + Bath Show in the ‘Innovation Gallery’ at the ICC Sydney in June, with the Air-Tec cooker on display.
