ILVE has showcased a new Professional Plus freestanding cooker, alongside new gas and induction hobs, at EuroCucina.

The new Professional Plus style freestanding cooker with pyrolytic cleaning will be available with either a six-burner gas hob or six-zone induction hob. It is expected to be released in Australia in early 2023.

The addition of full induction on the 1200mm wide freestanding cookers respond to market demand. Previously, ILVE offered induction on cookers up to, and including, 1000mm. The 1200mm cookers with induction will be available to order later in 2022.

The new Professional Plus gas and induction hobs provide the benefits and aesthetics of the cooking surface of a freestanding cooker yet allow customers to opt for built-in ovens.

“EuroCucina 2022 was a great opportunity to return to face-to-face contact with our valued manufacturing partners after three long years. Energy and excitement was everywhere at the fair and it was a great reminder that relationships are such a key part of what we do and the success that we have doing it,” Eurolinx national sales manager, Tristan Peters told Appliance Retailer.
