(ELUX) Research shows that consumers spend an increasing amount of time cooking, eating and entertaining outdoors during the summer. The new product category Outdoor kitchens from Electrolux will allow consumers to enjoy cooking with the same high quality equipment regardless if it is indoors or outdoors. The outdoor kitchen range includes a series of stainless steel grills for families of all sizes.
“During the summer period, the kitchen and living room area is extending outdoors, the garden and patio have become another room of the house,” says Henrik Otto, head of design at the Electrolux Group. “We know that consumers want to be with their family and guests, not run back and forth from the kitchen to the patio. We have a full range of products that allow them to take care of their guests and be with them.”
The Electrolux outdoor kitchens allow consumers to enjoy cooking with the same high quality equipment Electrolux has been providing to indoor kitchens for generations. The outdoor kitchen range includes a series of stainless steel grills for families of all sizes, with a cooking surface ranging from 65 to 130 cm.
The grills offer easy-to-clean cooking surfaces, stainless one-piece hoods and convenient side shelving. Every model features 304 stainless steel construction and electronic ignition. Select models encompass state-of-the-art features like infrared burners that deliver heat in 6 seconds, a side burner to handle additional tasks such as stir frying, and side burning gas ports.
The Electrolux Outdoor kitchens will be available in stores in spring 2005 in USA, Canada, and Sweden.
