RANGEHOODS MIELE HAS IT COVERED INSPIRED DESIGNS Janita Singh Miele rangehood with the wow factor. Visit miele.com.au ONCE regarded as a dominant feature in commercial kitchens, rangehoods have come a long way by taking a huge leap right into our domestic space. Today, rangehoods not only remove cooking fumes, they form part of the kitchen design and can make a bold statement. Considered one of the most essential kitchen appliances in modern age, rangehoods can add to your house value, can be a remarkable centrepiece and can give your kitchen a nice, stylish touch. Not too long ago, fixed, retractable and canopy styles were the only options. Today, with our increasing appetite for everything stylish, designers have delivered beyond expectation. Miele's Aura island rangehood is a winner of the 2012 Australian International Design Award. More than 200 products were judged against a criteria focusing on innovation, form, function, quality, safety and sustainability. The winner was all about the ''wow'' factor. Managing director of Good Design Australia, Brandon Gien, said there was wow factor in design detail, innovation and creativity. Miele category manager food and beverage preparation, Rudi Niemoeller said Aura was an outstanding showpiece. ''Aura island rangehood is an ideal solution for apartments or kitchens where ducting is chal- lenging,'' says Niemoeller. ''With its sleek, stylish elliptical design, the rangehood is sus- pended by four virtually invisible wires and features the ultimate in recirculation technology for the effective absorption of unpleasant odours. It is certainly a design standout in the kitchen.'' The judges recognised the ex- ceptional technology and design attributes and Aura was a winner. SMEG'S HOOD A TRUE BEAUTY Visit smeg.com.au THIS is a quiet achiever. The LIFT by Smeg (above) is a piece of beautifully stylish and technical wizardry that takes rangehoods to a whole new level. A single touch of an electronic button and it rises silently from the depths of the workbench. A second touch and it begins to quietly remove all cooking odours and grease-laden fumes from the pans bubbling away on the cook- top. For many kitchen installa- tions the conventional rangehood, mounted above the cooktop, is not ideal because of lack of space. This new concealed telescopic downdraft rangehood takes up no visible space and is installed in the benchtop either to the rear or one side of the cooktop. The LIFT Downdraft is raised from the benchtop only when needed. Features of the LIFT in- clude whisper quiet air extraction, four speeds and a powerful motor.
