Kitchen Trends #5 | Kitchen Design Innovations for a smarter and greener life
1 | Saving energy with the new smart ovens
Today you can cook by using only steam. The total steam cooking function by Bertazzoni, in fact, uses water vapor to cook food: thanks to this feature food is healthier and cooking is faster, so you can save energy when cooking and helping the environment. With the Steam Assist system, also, it is possible to set three different levels of steam intensity in combination with more traditional cooking modes.
In addition to this, the new ovens bring many new smart functions, such as the pyrolytic cleaning system: an ecological process based on cleaning the high temperature oven cavity that does not include the use of detergents.
Last but not least, these ovens have the wider oven cavity of the reference category, with a capacity of 76L and 5 oven levels. This means that you can cook at the same time many different dishes, by saving energy (and time, that is always precious as well nowadays!)
2 | Kitchen design innovations: the new fridges
Another key kitchen appliance is the fridge. Choosing the right fridge can have a high impact in our energy consumption and, as a consequence, also in saving energy and helping the environment. Efficient fridges are built with high quality materials and with details that guarantee a perfect insulation, combined with the latest chilling technologies.
Bertazzoni French Door refrigerator has a dual air–cooling technology and independent Total no frost systems for the refrigerator compartment and freezer, to maintain the optimal temperature in both. The Super Freeze mode, thanks to a variable speed compressor, guarantees a 20% faster cooling cycle for fresh foods. The two stainless steel doors together with the tempered glass shelves with sealed edges guarantee a top insulation, avoiding any energy dissipation.
3 | Quality over Quantity
Last, keep always in mind the concept that, the easiest way for living a more environmentally-friendly life is avoiding waste. This can be achieved by choosing always quantity over quality, that’s to say furniture and appliances that will last over time.
