The Arisit showroom in Dandendong South is a multicultural hub, home to Italian, French, American and Australian brands including Ariston (sold exclusively through Harvey Norman) and Scholtes and Sirius (available to the Narta buying group).

Inside are a number of design innovations and a healthy selection of funky rangehoods. Arisit has 12 brands in its stable, with more European names likely to be added in the future.

Colourful Genesi and Ascot ovens and cookers from Italian brand Steel are a recent addition to the Arisit stable.

Steel ovens in their conventional colours.

Steel’s ovens come in a more traditional stainless steel. The original stainless steel panels are replaced if a customer orders a colourful cooker, however the original panels come with the unit and can be installed at a later time if re-sale of a lime oven is an issue.

Pizza oven and BBQ

Under a massive pergola Arisit shows off its appliances for outdoor entertaining, including My Alfresco and Capital barbecues.

Planar gas cooker, Scholtes

An innovation in gastop cooking, the planar gas cooktop from Scholtes directs flames to the centre of the pan (rather than licking the edges) for more efficient heating.

Rangehood, Arisit

A Sirius rangehood could be disguised as a lamp over a kitchen island.

The design of Sirius rangehoods can be used as shelving.

Sirius Rangehood

Part mirror, part lamp, this rangehood from Sirius is sure to be a talking point.
