Home Living : April 27th 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, April 27, 2010 7 HOMELIVING Be a 21st century cook » ADVERTISING FEATURE With the cool months upon us, the hottest thing in the house is in the kitchen. Blanco's Platinum Range of induction cook tops are smart, stylish and sophisticated, delivering fast, safe, economic and precise cooking. Using magnetic technology, induction coils transfer energy from under the surface to the cast iron or steel pan to generate heat. Food is cooked by the heat generated directly on to the pan and, with no flames or heat transferred from the surface, there is a faster cooling down time -- an important safety feature for families with children. Induction cooking takes half the time of conventional electric cook tops to boil water. Using about half the energy of gas and being 45 per cent more energy- efficient than conventional electric cook tops, induction cooking takes less time to heat, meaning more money in your pocket. A flexible temperature range allows home chefs to whip up masterpieces. Be able to do an assortment of cooking, from gently melting chocolate on the lowest heat setting to cooking a great stir-fry on a higher heat. Style meets substance with the black continuous touch-sensitive surface that is easy to use and easier to clean (with no knobs to clean around). Say goodbye to burnt spills -- cleaning is as simple as a wipe of the sponge. Details: blanco-australia.com Easy fireplaces » ADVERTISING FEATURE They're stylish and eco-friendly, and they open up a whole new world of affordable home fireplace design ideas and installations. They're Blu Box Fireplaces -- the latest versatile collection from The Fire Company. Launched at designEX 2010, Australia's premier design and architecture event, Blu Box Fireplaces are chimney free, easy to install and simple to operate, enabling you to enjoy the beauty and warmth of an open fire in any room. With Blu Box Fireplaces, there's no smoke, no odour and no harmful emissions -- no mess and no fuss. Denatured ethanol (or methylated spirits) is an eco-friendly, clean-burning renewable liquid fuel, which means there's no need for a chimney or complex gas or electricity connection. Simply fill the burner with the fuel and ignite. And at the end of the night, just flip the lid closed with the provided rod to extinguish the flame. ''Interior fire design has never been this easy and our new range offers a style to suit every taste," says Stephane Thomas, director of The Fire Company and creator of Blu Box Fireplaces. ''Relaxing and entertaining in front of your very own open fire has never been easier." Details: bluboxfireplaces.com.au ...............................................
