International appliance giant Electrolux says its newly launched kitchen suite was designed for people who love creative cooking and are passionate about fresh ingredients.
Designed for the eco-conscious kitchen, the flagship 36-inch Induction Cooktop, Double Wall Oven, and French Door Refrigerator features technology to support culinary exploration and to keep food fresh longer.
“The Electrolux Connected Double Wall Oven and Electrolux French Door Refrigerator feature the sleek, elegant aesthetic expected from the Swedish brand, and introduce new food preparation and storage benefits for creative cooking,” the company says. “Backed by Electrolux’s sustainability leadership in the market, the new line is smartly designed to preserve fruits and vegetables longer and lock in natural flavors.”

Double Wall Oven
Offering “advanced cooking technology,” the EXWD3011AS double wall oven (with Electrolux Connect Technology) helps consumers explore their culinary creativity by integrating a variety of cooking technologies:
Air Sous Vide, which give cooks the elevated taste and juicy, flavorful results for meat, vegetables and more without a water bath. The Air Sous Vide setting uses precisely controlled heat and airflow to cook food by circulating air instead of water, holding temperatures from 100 to 205 degrees consistently; steam cooking Functions enhance the natural flavors of a variety of foods from meat to breads by creating a crisp, golden crust and a juicy, flavorful inside; and built-In Air Frying produces crispy vegetable chips, juicy chicken parmesan, and more without excess oil, the company says.
“The 2020 Electrolux Kitchen Line will mark the debut of Electrolux Connect Technology, which advances cooking and entertaining with remote control features,” the brands says in a statement announcing the line. “Electrolux Connect lets users entertain guests out on the patio and still serve a delectable meal without standing watch in the kitchen. With the Electrolux App on a phone or tablet, users can preheat the oven, monitor temperatures and cook times, and keep food warm until everyone arrives at the table.”
With Electrolux Connect Technology, the oven can be set, preheated, or monitored remotely through the Electrolux App. Users can get alerts when cook time ends, and switch to “Keep Warm-mode” so dishes are ready when family members and guests are ready to eat.
The wall oven features gunmetal chrome and stainless-steel handles, a full color touch display, and glass with subtle pin striping. It’s available in a single or oven/microwave combination.
Created to be a focal point of the kitchen, the ERMC2295AS fridge is engineered to keep produce tasting fresh, reduce spoiling, and keep leftovers lasting longer, Electrolux says.
“The counter-flush depth elevates kitchen elegance with the look of custom, built-in design, but with the flexibility of freestanding functionality,” the company says of the unit. “With flexible freezer space and adjustable shelves to make room for the week’s groceries or to store large platters, the new Electrolux French Door Refrigerator provides sustainable food storage ideas for the eco-conscious kitchen with advanced features.”
For example, a TempAdapt Drawer is adjustable from -6 to 45 degrees, allowing homeowners to keep all of your entertaining favorites—from cheese to wine to homemade sorbet—at the perfect serving temperature; TasteLock Crispers with Auto-Humidity Control preserve food freshness and keep produce lasting longer by removing excess moisture and blocking out dry air to prevent spoiling, shriveling, and mold; ExtraAccess auto-close doors offer access to 75 percent of fresh food just by opening one door to save energy; and LuxCool Plus Cooling System keep foods “market-fresh” with more consistent temperatures in both the refrigerator and the freezer.
“Knowing Electrolux consumers are focused on buying fresh produce from local farmer’s markets, the new Electrolux refrigerator was designed to keep produce fresher for longer so you can be confident stocking up on nature’s finest foods,” says Amie Guy, vice president of marketing, Electrolux North America.
Rounding out the collection, the 36-inch induction cooktop delivers faster, more precise cooking than electric and gas ranges, the company says. It includes precise temperature control with advanced sensing technology that continuously monitors pan temperature and automatically adjusts heat to ensure the pan maintains the exact set temperature. The product allows users to boil, sear, or sauté on the front burner and then Power Slide allows them to slide the pan to the back burner and the cooktop will automatically adjust to keep food warm and ready to serve. Finally, a Bridge Feature connects two cooking elements for even heat even when using larger pans or griddles.
“Electrolux’s new kitchen suite was designed to support sustainable living and culinary exploration,” continued Guy. “Matching the energy standards and aesthetic expected of our Scandinavian heritage and company legacy, this line brings new technology and features to help families enjoy getting into the kitchen while being mindful of their environmental impact. The Electrolux Double Wall Oven and the Electrolux French Door Refrigerator together support our mission to Shape Living for the Better and create a conscious kitchen by keeping food fresher, elevating natural flavors, and offering healthier cooking methods for inspired recipes.”
The ovens, cooktop, and refrigerator will be available in Q3 2020.
