Home Living : March 3rd 2009
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 3, 2009 Great entertainer HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE The open-plan nature of kitchens today has transformed the formal nature of dinner parties, with hosts cooking while entertaining guests. Cookware is now on show and fashionable, quality cookware has never been more important. Chef Inox takes professional-grade cookware into the home. The huge range of cookware-set collections includes: Anodised, Professional, Studio and Gravity. Each has a diverse combination of pots and pans.. Each piece in the Gravity collection has a 5mm base and a 3mm wall, providing optimal heat distribution and retention. Dupont Teflon offers a strong and durable finish with five different set variations, including a paella pan set and a wok and grillpan set. The Studio range has a sleek contemporary design and features heat-resistant cast stainless-steel handles, a stylish and functional steam-vented lid system, oven-safe to 230C and the option of Dupont Teflon Platinum non-stick or stainless-steel interiors. The Anodised range is ideal for those who like looking while they're cooking, featuring steam-vented tempered glass lids. The Professional range is for the home chef who takes their cooking seriously. Restaurant-standard cookware qualities include impact-bonded base technology, professional-style handles, high-polish steam-vented lids and mess- free dripless pouring rims. The range is available at David Jones and selected homeware retailers. Details: Visit www.tomkin.com.au or call 8665 4688. Install home insulation off your own bat If you don't have insulation, now is a great time to install it. The Federal Government's rebate program offers up to $1600 for ceiling insulation in owner-occupied homes. There is also a rebate of up to $1000 for landlords to insulate their rental properties. Ceiling insulation is the most effective way to protect your home from the elements all-year round, EnergyAustralia's energy efficiency expert Paul Myors says. ''Insulation can cut heating and cooling costs by as much as 30 per cent, which can be over $100 a year.'' he says. Two important things to consider when installing insulation are what it's made from and its thermal resistance (or R value). When it comes to the R value, the higher the number the better it will insulate. Around R3.0 is recommended in Sydney. The most common type of insulation is made from fibreglass batts. However other insulation options include rockwool, natural wool or polyester batts. Loose fill insulation can be made from cellulose fibre, natural wool or granulated rockwool. It may settle over time, so make sure the contractor quotes a settled R value. Details for rebates: Call 1800 808 571 or visit www.environment.gov.au/ energyefficiency .
