Introducing ILVE’s 76cm Pyrolytic Electric Oven

76cm oven image

At ILVE, we’re known for our impressive collection of top-of-the-line products. We’re continuing this proud legacy by expanding our built-in appliance range with the release of the larger 76cm Pyrolytic Electric Oven. User-friendly and technologically advanced, this model is a perfect addition to any home!

The features of the 76cm Pyrolytic Electric Oven include a spatial capacity of 123L, giving you enough room to whip up any culinary delights you may desire. The double fan with heating elements also provides superior heat distribution in the generous oven space, creating a lack of oven ‘hot spots’ and generating ideal, multi-level cooking each time you use the oven.

Further taking advantage of the model’s substantial room, the full-cavity width grill utilises a heat reflecting surface that allows for the grilling of an oven that’s full of food. With six possible grill positions and 13 different oven functions, the 76cm Pyrolytic Electric Oven has got your culinary needs covered, from pizza to homemade bread. But it gets better: the low energy consumption of the 76cm Pyrolytic Electric Oven means you can cook practically guilt-free!

While the cooking functions of an oven are vital, the cleaning of the appliance is of the utmost importance as well. One of the most distinctive features of the oven is the pyrolytic cleaning function. For quick cleaning, simply set the pyrolytic cycle at the end of cooking. This function raises the oven’s temperature to 475°C, which incinerates any food residue on the oven walls. At the end of the cycle, just wipe the
oven’s walls with a damp cloth to eliminate any remains.

For easy cooking and even easier cleaning, say goodbye to heavy chemicals with harsh odours, and say hello to pyrolytic!

ILVE’s ILCO7613P 76cm Pyrolytic Electric Oven has an RRP of $4,999. For more info, visit www.ilve.com.au

Renovations Celebration

image

What better way to show off a renovation than with a celebration? To commemorate our recently refurbished Brisbane Showroom, we invited a select group of local journalists, interior designers and architects for an exclusive walk-through of our new space.

For a special reveal of our Showroom, we asked Brisbane-based media and industry professionals to view the new space, as well as check out our extensive array of ILVE products on display.

As well as showing off our new look, our guests were also treated to a retelling of ILVE’s history as a brand. Queensland’s State Manager, Mark Tebbutt, was on-hand to answer questions with his expert knowledge of all things ILVE, and he certainly didn’t disappoint.

To top off the afternoon, attendees were also treated to a product demonstration in the Showroom’s working kitchen. Our in-house home economist Steve Marsh whipped up lunch in an ILVE oven, serving up a delicious spread of roasted meats, salads, fresh seafood, hearty pasta, sweet desserts and plenty of wine.

The fun had to end sometime though, and to make the afternoon even sweeter, our guests were gifted with ILVE goodie bags, with extensive product information and a DVD featuring recipes by Giovanni Pilu.

With a walk-through this fun, we think we should renovate our showrooms more often!

ILVE Celebrates With Stellar Wine Cellar Collection

Screenshot 2014-11-28 15.07.42

The festive season has just gotten a little more exciting with the release of our new Wine Cellar and Beverage Centre collection!

Combining style and quality, the collection has been designed with ILVE’s trademark sophisticated aesthetic in mind. Functionally, each of the four products allows wine and beverages to be kept at their ideal humidity and temperature to guarantee their quality is maintained.

Created in collaboration with Vintec, the four-piece range consists of both a Single and Dual Zone Wine Cellar, and a Beverage Centre to accompany the built-in wine cellar.

Living up to its name, the Single Zone Wine Cellar facilitates the storage of up to 40 Bordeaux bottles at a single temperature, between 12 and 16 degrees Celsius and a humidity of approximately 70%. The Dual Zone Wine cellar allows for greater flexibility in the storage of wine with a temperature zone that can be set between 6 and 22 degrees Celsius, meaning you can create a perfect storage space for both red and white wines simultaneously!

Just in time for the festive season, the Beverage Centre has been created to house up to 100 beer cans or bottles – enough to cater any holiday party. This makes it the ideal product for saving precious fridge space when those summer gatherings roll around!

Summer provides ample opportunities for entertaining, so now is the time to invest in extra wine and beverage storage for your home. With Christmas just around the corner, ILVE’s Cellar Range presents fantastic gift ideas for budding sommeliers in the family – providing a home for an expanding wine collection.

ILVE’s Wine Cellars and Beverage Centre are now on display at ILVE Showrooms and selected retailers Australia-wide. For more info, log onto www.ilve.com.au

ILVE’s Piano Flush Cooktop: The Latest in Gas Cooktop Technology

ILFM905TC (1)

With style and safety both being a priority in ILVE’s designs, our new Piano Flush Cooktop is the perfect marriage of both! By using state-of-the-art and innovative technologies, the cooktop is perfect for any level of cook, from beginners to top chefs.

The ingenuity of the Piano Flush lies in its design, with four gas burners comprising of small, medium and large sizes, front sensor touch controls and cast-iron grills. The cast-iron grills are designed to be as level as possible, all while conserving the efficiency of the burners. The Piano Flush design utilises extra thickness of the grills at their external perimeter to ensure greater protection of solid work surfaces.

By using the latest technology in gas cooktops, the Piano Flush employs forward-thinking technology, like automatic re-ignition. This means that the cooking surfaces will make up to three attempts to re-ignite automatically if the cooktop’s flames are going out. In other cases, if the cooktop does not ignite, the protection against gas leaks (Gasprotekt) intervenes to rectify the situation.

The Piano Flush Cooktop provides a sense of confidence and ease when cooking with gas. The cutting-edge cooktop applies a sensor to identify the temperature of each burner when it is turned off, lighting the letter H on the relative digital display until the temperature lowers to a tepid level, allowing the burner to be cleaned.

The Piano Flush Cooktop exemplifies ILVE’s sophisticated and pioneering kitchen appliances, with its sleek design, tech-savvy features and, above all, by providing the latest safety features for gas cooking.

ILVE’s Piano Flush Cooktop is available in selected retailers and on display at ILVE showrooms nationally. For more information: www.ilve.com.au or call 1300 694 583.

Meat Free Week – a guest blog

If you haven’t heard about Meat Free Week, read on. Running March 18 – 24, it’s not about giving up meat forever – at ILVE we could never recommend this! – it’s about thinking about the amount of meat you eat and most importantly, where that meat comes from!

We think it’s a great initiative, and we’re lucky enough to have the Meat Free Week team provide us a guest blog, as well as a delicious meat free recipe from renowned foodie Belinda Jeffrey!

Meat Free Week – over to you… Buon appetito!

 

 

Asking people who love food to cut down on meat seems a bit of contentious issue. Yet with Meat Free Week we recognised the importance of reaching those who are passionate about food. Why? Because we believe that it’s “foodies” who can influence the way we view meat and specifically, how much of it we eat. And when we’re talking foodies, we’re not just talking chefs, we also mean people like you, because you’re most likely to be inspired to create delicious and exciting meat free meals, ones that expand our palette and are celebrated in their own right.

We also believe that change is needed. As our population and affluence have grown, so too has the amount of meat we eat. We’ve seen the tradition of eating meat every day, and often at every meal, become widespread and commonplace. We believe that modern farming and retailing has resulted in a disconnect between what we eat and where it comes from. It has also created the need for factory farming – the industrialised farming of animals, namely chickens, pigs, ducks, turkeys and rabbits.

Meat Free Week is not about encouraging people to become vegetarian or give up meat for life. Rather it’s an opportunity for people to sign up for the challenge of taking a seven day break from eating meat and discover some fantastic meat free meals. It’s also a chance to consider the impact excessive meat consumption has on animal welfare, the environment and human health.

We have secured the support of some Australia’s most celebrated chefs and home cooks who have donated delicious meat free recipes https://meatfreeweek.com/recipes. So whether you’re looking for an easy mid-week dinner or something a little more challenging, you can’t go past this great collection.

By understanding the benefits of eating less meat, we hope people will choose to make a commitment to reducing their meat consumption. And that when they do eat meat, only choose meat that is ethically produced and sourced.

We hope you enjoy this fabulous Saffron, Basil and Ricotta Tart from renowned foodie Belinda Jeffery.

Visit meatfreeweek.com for information on the campaign as well as delicious meat free recipes. Get involved by signing up for the challenge and in doing so raise funds for Voiceless, the animal protection institute. Thanks, Lainie & Melissa – Meat Free Week.

 

Belinda Jeffrey’s SAFFRON, BASIL AND RICOTTA TART

“At one stage in my career, I was very fortunate to work in a wonderful Italian restaurant in Sydney, called Taylors. I spent much of my time making desserts and antipasti, including this wonderful tart. It’s perfect for this time of year when lovely, fat bunches of basil appear in the markets. And with its gorgeous sunshine-yellow filling flecked with vivid green basil, it makes a fabulous main course with a tomato salad.” – Belinda Jeffrey.

P.S. Just remember to use the best ricotta that you can buy – I usually try to get it from a deli where they sell it fresh from the hoop colanders – as the flavour is all-important.

Ingredients – serves 6

-100ml dry white wine

-2 generous pinches (about ¾ teaspoon) of saffron threads

-1 pre-baked 25-26cm pastry shell

-3 x 70g eggs

-700g fresh ricotta

-100g freshly grated parmesan cheese

-¼ cup (about 15g) firmly packed basil leaves or 2-3 heaped tablespoons basil pesto, or more to taste

-Sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

-100g unsalted butter, melted and cooled

-Small basil leaves, to garnish

Method

-Before you do anything else, gently warm the wine (I do this in the microwave in a heatproof jug) and add the saffron threads to it. Mix well, then leave the mixture to steep for 30 minutes.

-In the meantime, preheat your oven to 180C. Sit the tart tin with the pastry shell on a baking tray.

-Pour the saffron mixture into a food processor. Add the eggs, ricotta, parmesan, basil (or pesto), sea salt and pepper and whiz everything together. With the motor running, pour in the melted butter. Mix it in, stopping and scraping down the

sides once or twice as you go, until the mixture is thick and smooth. (I use a large food processor for this, which will mix it all in one hit, however if you don’t have a large one, it may be best to do it in batches.)

-Scrape the ricotta mixture into the tart shell and shake it gently to even out the top. Pop the tray with the tart into the oven and bake it for 30 minutes or so, until it is puffed and a speckled dark-golden brown on top, and feels set when you gently press your fingers on the surface and jiggle it.

-Remove the tart tin to a rack and leave it to settle for 5 minutes or so before sliding the tart onto a serving platter. Garnish with a sprinkling of small basil leaves. Although it looks rather resplendently puffed when it comes out of the oven, I’m afraid it sinks as it cools, however the flavour is wonderful.
