Electrolux Professional has unveiled its Molteni Caractère premium cooking stove, a customised range for the luxury end of the market.
Created to blend traditional cooking heritage with contemporary design, all units are handcrafted to the exact specifications of each chef. Every range is constructed with an AISI 304 stainless steel chassis, with what are said to be with a compact surface and stylish finishing which can be personalised in several combinations.
The Caractère range can incorporate cooking functions including induction plates, charcoal lava stone grill, static ovens, heated, chilled and neutral drawers and cabinets, as well as bain maries and pasta cookers.
Further bespoke additions include round or square control knobs forged from ergonomic stainless steel, as well as a tailor-made plaque bearing either a bespoke logo or the classic Molteni logo.
Available in a variety of matte or gloss enamelled colour finishes, chefs will also have the option to incorporate the Molteni Decor finish. This includes top and side panels which are claimed to offer durability and be resistant to scratches, abrasion, stains, heat, fire and UV.
Steve Wooldridge, fine dining segment manager at Electrolux Professional commented: “The exclusive, hand-crafted design of the traditional, premium cooking range has made Molteni a go-to solution for high-end kitchens around the world. Now, we’re in a position to widen our offer and present those with a passion for design, the perfect combinations of quality with style, and tradition with innovation.
“The new Molteni Caractère range embodies our excellence in blending established heritage with a 21st century aesthetic. The result is a real integration of the classic and the contemporary; a design concept that combines the classic appearance and cookabilty expected from a premium cooking stove, with an as-yet-unseen level of customisation for the UK’s fine dining scene.
“With functionality, durability and longevity all at the heart of the new Molteni Caractère, it is undoubtedly a game-changer for UK chefs wanting to take the stove to the pinnacle of quality.”
