Electrolux Professional is bidding to usher in a “new era” of luxury cuisine after unveiling the latest incarnation of its iconic Molteni cooking stove.
The custom-crafted premium cookline is aimed at top restaurants, hotels and private residential homes, and has been created to blend traditional cooking heritage with contemporary design.
Each Molteni Caractère fuses ultra-modern, high tech materials – including a AISI 304 stainless steel chassis – with a compact surface and stylish finishing, to deliver a number of seamless, contemporary combinations, according to the brand.
Steve Wooldridge, fine dining segment manager at Electrolux Professional, said: “The exclusive, hand-crafted design of the traditional, premium cooking range has made Molteni a go-to solution for high-end kitchens around the world. Now, we’re in a position to widen our offer and present those with a passion for design, the perfect combinations of quality with style, and tradition with innovation.”
The Caractère range incorporates a host of different cooking functions depending on the requirements of the chef. These range from induction plates and a unique charcoal lava stone grill to classic static ovens, heated, chilled and neutral drawers and cabinets, as well as bain maries and pasta cookers.
Further bespoke additions include round or square control knobs forged from ergonomic stainless steel, as well as a tailor-made plaque bearing either a bespoke logo or the classic Molteni logo, which has adorned ovens across the world’s finest kitchens for nearly 100 years.
The equipment is available in a variety of matte or gloss enamelled colour finishes, while chefs will also have the option to incorporate the Molteni Decor finish. This includes top and side panels which offer durability and resistance to scratches, abrasion, stains and heat.
