What's new in kitchen appliances

For all of you out there who enjoy cooking, or maybe just spend a lot of time in the kitchen, we'll be keeping you up to date with interesting new innovations and technologies that are being released that make a real difference to your cooking. No gimmicks, no spin, just the features that will make your life in the kitchen easier!

Move over Stainless Steel, meet the Versa cooktop from Ilve

Ilve ads always catch my eye - that italian passion for food and cooking mixed with fashion photography, flavoured with the wit of a food stylist - they jump from the pages. Other than great visual campaigns, Ilve also designs beautiful kitchen appliances.

The latest in the line up is a handcrafted black glass, gas cooktop collection called Versa. Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding cook & an equally discerning aesthetic eye, the Versa moves away from the traditional stainless steel cooktop, and replaces it with the sleekness black glass - its bringing the future of design into the kitchen.

At 90cm wide, the Versa delivers a four zone induction cooktop which delivers evenly distributed heat perfectly when flat based pans are used. Induction cooking is perfect for low simmers and quick boils. For those who love asian style cooking, in particular wok based dishes, a powerful gas burner is necessary.

This is where the Versa really stands out - it combines a gas burner perfect for wok cooking with four zones of induction cooking. Shop the Ilve range.

New Cooktops from Bosch - Flame Select

For our first installment, we are looking at the new Flame Select Cooktops from Bosch. First up - disclosure - I prefer cooking with gas. But even though I'm a convert to gas, that doesn't stop me from being frustrated when I'm trying to adjust the heat on our current cooktop. Turn the dial a tiny bit and the heat output shifts significantly. It makes it hard to judge, and has resulted in some interesting meals (read - slightly burnt!).

So when I heard about this new feature from Bosch, I could see why it would be really helpful. Flame Select means that as you turn the dial, you get an exact and precise amount of heat. So there are nine clear heat settings, that go up incrementally. It makes cooking with gas more predictable, probably more efficient, and definitely much easier to know that you're using the right temperature setting.

If you're in the market for a kitchen upgrade, and you like cooking with gas, but would like some more precision in your heat settings it would definitely be worth considering the Flame Select range.
