Following the launch of ‘Marion’s Test Kitchen’ last year with Marion Grasby, Panasonic is extending its partnership with the Australian cook for a second year.

The Test Kitchen will make a return in 2022 with six new episodes each featuring recipes created using Grasby’s signature cooking methods and trialed with Panasonic’s home appliance range. Grasby will test various models of Panasonic microwave ovens, rice cookers and bread makers and demonstrate handy tips about how everyday meals can be made easier.

This year will also introduce a new four-part series, which shows Grasby taking on culinary challenges using Panasonic refrigerators and convection microwave ovens to promote the versatility of these kitchen appliances.

Panasonic Australia home appliance category and marketing communications manager, Charissa Sano said, “Marion’s Test Kitchen series impressed last year and showed Australian consumers the true versatility of just some of our appliances. From her easy to make One Pot Honey Soy Chicken and Rice made in the Panasonic Rice Cooker, to cooking an entire pork belly in the 3-in-1 Convection Microwave, the traditional was always turned upside down.

“Recipes that you would think to make in the oven, or on the stove, were re-imagined in our multi-function kitchen heroes. The exact same delightful flavours were achieved in our appliances, which were created so that all Australians can be chefs in their own homes. We are now thrilled to be collaborating further with Marion on an educational series for all cooking enthusiasts.”

Commenting on the partnership, Grasby said, “I’m thrilled to be partnering with Panasonic for a second year of fun, exciting and most importantly, delicious, content. I loved testing out my Panasonic appliances last year in my Marion’s Test Kitchen series.

“That series allowed us to build an authentic brand partnership with experiments and recipes our audience loved to watch. But I’m also going to be throwing down some challenges this year in an exciting new series that will push my skills to the limit.”

All new episodes will be launched across Grasby’s Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube channels.
