Quiet oven to come to UK
The Red Dot Best of The Best oven, Zen, from Amica, will be available from 1st January 2013. Amica Zen, pictured here, is an environmentally sound, technically advanced oven conceived for those who are searching for tranquillity and simplicity in their homes. The Zen is the antithesis of overwhelming technology. No illumination, alarms, ringtones or buzzing timers - nothing to attack the senses.
Whilst it offers the best of Amica multifunction cooking, it does not have a clock or a timer. The glass door is matt, non-reflective and the handle a smooth tactile choice of Birch, Ebony or Oak - both features add to its discrete presence.
Amica UK's country manager, Simon Freear, says: "The response to Zen via Twitter and Facebook, tells us there's a real interest and opportunity for a product that does not add beeps and buzzes to the general household hum.
"Zen amounts to the polar-opposite to what's available across the cooking market currently. It's ideal for those who cook from 'feel' and intuition and simply don't need reminders and alarms."
Zen, like all Amica built-in and freestanding appliances, is available through independent electrical retailers nationwide and is supplied with a comprehensive two year warranty on parts and labour.
