Technology that works with the ergonomics of your kitchen

The kitchen is the central hub of your home, which is why the ergonomics of its design are so important.

As well as incorporating practical and functional worktops and cabinets, it makes sense to ensure your appliances are also chosen for their efficiency and positioned according to your height and working methods. Your kitchen layout should reflect your lifestyle and enable you to prepare, cook and serve food safely and in style.

Be comfortable when cooking

When it comes to cooking appliances, you have the option of built-in, built-under, double or single ovens as well as a wide variety of gas and electric hobs.

A double oven such as the AEG SurroundCook DUE431110M is ideal for when you’re cooking for a large family or frequently entertaining guests. Different dishes can be cooked at the same time, and heat is evenly distributed, so your food is heated all the way through rather than the back being burnt and the front undercooked.

We like this model as it has a sleek design, anti-fingerprint coating and a catalytic cleaning feature that makes cleaning easy as grease and fat is absorbed by liners and oxidising.

It’s important to remember that when choosing your oven, you need to be comfortable with its height. Your hob should be positioned to allow you to easily look down and see the contents of your pots and pans while your oven should be at a height that makes it easy for you to cook. You need to be able to see the contents of your roasting and baking trays too otherwise it can be dangerous when you’re cooking, especially with hot oil.

Must have a dishwasher

Whereas it used to be a luxury item, a dishwasher has become a necessity for most families. And if you don’t have a large family, you now have the option of smaller, slimline dishwashers that will cater for just one or two people.

With a choice of large capacity or slimline, semi-integrated or compact table-top, you can find a dishwasher that’s right for you – taking the hassle out of washing and drying up after meals.

There are also some innovative features on offer. For example, the Bosch Serie 4 SMV46GX00G integrated dishwasher has an ultra-quiet EcoSilence Drive Motor, a clever LoadSensor that automatically adjusts water and energy depending on the load size, and even a program for sparkly glassware.

Customise your fridge freezer

Whether you choose integrated, free-standing, separate or American-style, you can find leading brand fridges and freezers that are designed to work with the ergonomics of your kitchen workspace.

There are also some smart features available including humidity-controlled salad crisper draws to keep your produce fresh, inbuilt water dispensers for cold water on tap, and frost-free freezers to prevent ice build-up.

And there’s the CustomFlex fridge freezer from AEG that features CustomFlex technology that allows you to personalise the fridge's layout – as often as you like – so you can customise your fridge to suit your lifestyle.

Exciting new laundry aids

Laundry used to be boring, but some of the technology used in the latest models make it much more exciting with innovative features available across integrated and free-standing washing machines, including super silent cycles so you can wash at night.

AEG’s 7000 Series washing machines are for anyone who hates ironing. By using ProSteam® Technology you can finish your wash cycle with a gentle steam, so clothes need little or no ironing. Or select a short, gentle steam programme that removes odours and reduces creases in dry fabric – that way you can eliminate both ironing and dry cleaning.
