Our Three Summer Essentials

Our favourite festivities are coming up quickly, and we couldn’t get through them without these key essentials from ILVE.

With summer upon us, it’s time to get ready for the always-hectic holiday period. The festive season often brings holiday hosting commitments, and unfortunately, organising this can take the fun out of the most wonderful time of the year.

However, with these three cooking essentials from ILVE, you can ensure that you’ll get through the season of sharing, creating and cooking with plenty of joy, and food, to spare!

WINE FRIDGE

First things first, we need a drink to keep us company while we prepare our most impressive festive dishes!

Keep your reds and whites temperature stored to perfection in the ILVE Wine Cellar, an essential summer asset that consists of a single zone wine cellar, a dual zone wine cellar and a beverage centre to accompany the built-in wine cellar.

Designed with ILVE’s sophisticated signature aesthetic in mind, the four products in the Wine Cellar range allow wine and other beverages to be stored at optimum temperature and humidity settings to ensure their finest quality is maintained.

Perfect for any scorching summer day!

MAJESTIC FREESTANDING OVEN

ILVE’s Majestic Freestanding range encompasses some of our most deluxe and technologically advanced models. With a classic-come-contemporary look, the Majestic Freestanding models are kitchen centerpieces that are sure to demand attention, all while cooking a Christmas roast meal to perfection.

With several innovative configurations for added kitchen safety – from the cool touch athermic door handle, triple-glazed glass for cooler exterior door temperatures helped by an integrated twin cavity cooling system – ILVE creates a carefree cooking experience – even throughout the holidays!

Cleaning can be a serious interruption to holiday cheer, but worry no more with an ILVE freestanding oven. Adding to the models’ practicality is the no-fuss cleaning features.

Self-cleaning catalytic liners and roof panels are paired with a non-staining vitreous enamel interior for a low-maintenance cleaning practice, while the oven door is constructed with dismountable inner glass for easy removal.

There are five available sizes in the Majestic (70cm, 90cm, 100cm, 120cm and 150cm) with a selection of up to 8 striking colours, making it a perfect fit for any home.

It’s going to be a hot one, so if you can’t stand the heat, get into the kitchen!
