Over the coming weeks, I am going to introduce you to ILVE'S incredible appliances, including range cookers, built-in ovens and their fabulous range of professional style hobs.
Let me start with their gorgeous range cookers. ILVE make range cookers in four stunning designs. I'm going to share with you the great features in each range! In this blog, let me start with the incredible Milano range cooker.
The Milano collection is a traditionally styled range, reflecting Italian heritage and comes with beautiful, intricate, door handles and control knobs. There are 9 rich colours that come as a standard choice, all of which are gorgeous, or you can choose from over 200 RAL colours. Once you have chosen your colour, you can then pick your finish; classic Chrome, warm Bronze, a classic Brass, or, brand new this year, Copper (which is more like a rose gold, so popular for kitchens this year!). This cooker isn't just stunning but an incredible appliance to cook with, keep reading to learn about my favourite features.
The Milano cooks just like a professional range cooker. ILVE have added the best functions to help ensure your meals are cooked to perfection. This range cooker has an incredible 15 different oven options! There is no more waiting around for your cooker to heat up, ILVE's quick start function gets up to 200°C in just 6 minutes. With ILVE there is no more guesswork selecting the temperature, the Milano uses the cutting edge E3 precision temperature control so you can accurately change the heat from 30°C right up to 300°C in 5°C increments. The handy steam release function which is super easy to use lets you either keep the oven moist or releases steam if you want dry heat.
The 120cm Milano is my personal favourite. I just love this bold, beautiful cooker, packed with features, loads of space and it comes with one huge 97-litre oven and a smaller 43-litre one which is perfect for cakes and rotisserie chicken!
Batch cooking in the big oven is a dream, I just pop it on to the baking function and can cook 2 extra-large trays of muffins at a time ( my favourites are double chocolate chip and salted caramel). The 2020 models are brilliant as they have 2 lamps in the oven at different levels so that you can see your baking as it browns rather than having only part of the oven light up.
If you buy an ILVE range cooker, it’s like having a professional cooker in your home. There’s a great choice of hobs too! You can choose from classic gas burners, which are a lovely matt black colour 9 over solid brass and you can add a stainless-steel fry top griddle( for healthy frying or waffles and pancakes) or you can opt for one with the amazing French styled coup de feu. If you like induction hobs, the 100cm Milano is great as it comes with 6 zones instead of the standard 5 which most other brands have.
There are 6 different sizes of the Milano, from the compact 60cm up to a huge is 150cm, so you are certain to find one perfect for your home. The choices are endless…
Come back to my blog next week where I will introduce you to the Roma, ILVE’s modern and ultra-sleek range cooker.
