LG has confirmed the launch of a range of cooking products including ovens, cooktops and rangehoods into the Australian market from around May this year. The product is made by LG featuring technology and that helps create synergies with other LG kitchen products such as refrigerators and dishwashers.

“We will launch a full suite of ovens available in matte black and black steel. The ovens are already available in some European markets, so we are taking learnings from the global launch so far,” LG Electronics Australia general manager of home appliances, Frank Malcaus told Appliance Retailer.

“There will be the Series 9 ovens with full steam technology in matte black and Series 7 ovens with steam assist technology in black steel at launch, which will be followed by the more affordable Series 5 ovens in stainless steel at a later time, with a more traditional look and feel such as dial controls.

“To complement the Series 9, Series 7 and Series 5 ovens, we will be launching a matching built-in microwave oven, offering a model to suit all needs.

“In typical LG fashion, when we launch a new product, we always do our best to provide consumers with more value for money. Our flagship Series 9 oven models offer a number of premium features including touch screen displays, full telescopic rails, soft close doors, meat probe, steam technology and pyrolytic cleaning.

“The blue interior seen across the entire oven range represents our Easy Clean technology. The interior coating has been made with a formula of minerals including cobalt to give consumers the ability to clean the oven interior a lot easier through a 10-minute cycle that uses a lot less energy compared to other traditional self-cleaning functions.

“With ProBake technology, the oven distributes heat faster and more evenly regardless of where the food is positioned in the oven – top, bottom or middle.

“We’ll also be launching a multi-function microwave oven with a warming drawer to again complement our refrigeration and dishwashers in terms of design. 

“Our InstaView refrigerators have been available in Australia for several years now, so it is a well-recognised and much-loved feature among consumers. We are now bringing InstaView technology to our ovens.

“We will also bring LG induction cooktops with downdraft ventilation and rangehoods to Australia at a later time. The induction cooktops will be available with three or four zones in 600mm and 800mm wide.

“We will also be ranging a full line-up of built-in dishwashers with the same technology available in our current dishwasher range.”
