LG built-in appliances: new collection combines energy efficiency, functionality and design

ficiency, functionality and design are the hallmarks of the new line of built-in appliances for the European market presented by LG Electronics at IFA 2023, the leading consumer electronics and home appliance fair in Berlin from 1 to 5 September.

The range includes InstaView™ ovens, QuadWash™ dishwashers, induction hobs, combi refrigerators and microwave ovens. With this new line-up of built-in appliances, which complements the ultra-premium Signature Kitchen Suite built-in product brand, LG aims to enrich its product portfolio to consolidate its position in the European built-in market and in the home appliance market as a whole, with the stated goal of positioning itself among the top five brands in the industry.


LG InstaView Oven: Aesthetics and Functionality

The LG InstaView built-in oven has an energy efficiency rating of A++ thanks to enhanced insulation features and optimised temperature control. The four panes of glass in the oven door minimise heat loss while InstaView technology allows you to easily look inside by simply knocking on the glass, without the need to open the door.

Utilising the uniformity of heat and the ProBake Convection™ technology feature, the oven can provide customised cooking modes such as steaming, vacuum cooking and air frying.

Thanks to EasyClean™ technology, the oven can be cleaned after use in just 10 minutes, without the need for detergents, using the power of steam.

The LG InstaView oven perfectly combines aesthetics and functionality: the refined matt black finish with intuitive full-touch controls and an ergonomic handle are important details that have won it several prestigious international design awards including the iF Design Award 2023 and the Red Dot Design Award 2023.


LG QuadWash Dishwashers: Optimising Energy Consumption

The LG QuadWash dishwasher has an energy efficiency class A rating and uses LG's innovative Inverter Direct Drive motor to optimise energy consumption during each cycle.

The QuadWash technology uses the multi-directional rotation of its four spray arms to remove stains, grease and food residue from dishes while LG's exclusive TrueSteam™ technology uses a jet of hot steam to reduce germs and bacteria ensuring excellent cleaning results.

The stylish dishwasher is also equipped with an easy-to-read LED display and Wi-Fi so it can connect to the LG ThinQ™ app to conveniently control and monitor its operation, download new cycles and troubleshoot minor problems with the Smart Diagnosis function.


Induction hob: innovative and minimalist design

LG's new induction hob is an innovative appliance with a downdraft ventilation system and a hood located in the centre of the cooking surface. The system, which efficiently draws in cooking fumes and vapours, uses mesh filters and offers variable speed settings to ensure precise air extraction. Touch controls provide a simple, minimalist look.
