Stoves unveils new built-in collection and switches production back to UK
Leading cooking appliance manufacturer Stoves has unveiled its new built-in collection of ovens and hobs and has moved production from Europe back to its Merseyside base.
The new offering, consisting of nine single and double ovens and 13 hobs, is available in a choice of black or stainless steel finishes.
The portfolio of ovens includes 600mm, 700mm and 900mm heights with the same aesthetic applied to both the gas and electric models.
The collection consists of fanned and multifunction, with all electric ovens A rated for energy efficiency and all gas appliances fully FSD compliant.
Other features include telescopic shelves, programmable timers and halogen flood lights that provide up to 36% more light from 20% less energy.
Within the collection Stoves has launched a stunning selection of 600mm and 700mm wide hobs, including gas, electric sealed plate and ceramic models, plus a range of five ceramic induction hobs.
Amongst the most innovative of the products is the SEH600i13AMP - an electric ceramic induction hob with touch controls. It comes complete with a 13 AMP plug, which means that no hard wiring is required when fitting and makes it an ideal product for the replacement market.
Every product in the new built-in collection will be labelled 'Made In Britain' and will be manufactured at Stoves' Prescot base. Sales of the products will be backed up by the brand's award winning UK- based customer care centre and team of dedicated product engineers.
"Bringing the production of our new Stoves built-in range back to the UK is an important step in fulfilling our commitment to Made in Britain, explains Steve Dickson, Commercial Manager of Stoves. "Approximately 85% of all of our cooking products are now manufactured in Prescot.
"The range itself includes some great additions with the user-friendly telescopic shelves and the plug in induction hob, but we also believe that offering the same aesthetic in both the gas and electric models is going to prove to be really popular."
