NEW TECHNOLOGY TECHNOLOGY ON MENU KITCHEN STYLING EMBRACES DIGITAL AGE New kitchen technology sees key information projected on glass doors. RIght: Electrolux's fully hidden integrated oven INNOVATION is playing a huge role in the kitchen with digital technology having a major impact on the development of appliances. The latest mobile phones and tablets are increasing con- sumers' expectations of their technology, and this is impact- ing kitchen appliances. Electrolux senior design man- ager Lyndon Craig says some of the latest kitchen devices show- cased at the recent EuroCucina 2012 in Milan indicated that seemingly contrasting design goals can be combined through innovation. ''Appliances of the future will enhance our experi- ences through digital tech- nology while becoming more eco-friendly,'' says Craig. Digital Experiences Many manufacturers displayed colour screens and advanced interfaces. Similarly, many tal- ked about connectivity between different appliances and the in- ternet. This allows products to be controlled remotely, and for recipes and other information to be collected by the product. Other innovative ways of dis- playing information included several uses of projections. Dishwashers which project the time remaining in a cycle are all part of new trend in kitchen technology. COOKTOPS' ABOUT FACE Electrolux's Ultra-Minimalist cooktop WHILE the bulk of products on display at a recent design-trend show in Milan were still based on a professional stainless steel look, many others were taking aesthetics in new directions. Ultra-minimalist black glass cooktops have graphics and controls that disappear when the product is turned off, and come to life by lighting up when it is turned on. Matching black ovens, with displays that are hidden until lit, work with the same mini- malist theme -- some of the ovens don't even have oven windows. Low-profile gas burners are being set flush into cooktops, with extremely low, minimalist pan supports giving an open, streamlined appearance. At the other extreme were some extremely brightly coloured appliances, including both cooktops and ovens.
