H&D Hotlist #081: New design products, furniture and home accessories
Cooking Made Easy
Samsung has rolled out the Colour Series Microwave Ovens that don’t just look chic but boast innovative features, too. Choose from a solo microwave (in black and pink) or a grill microwave (in white and mint), both of which have a glass control panel and six intuitive buttons. For the health- conscious, the Grill Fry function fries food evenly with just a dab of oil, while those with a sweet tooth can whip up desserts using pre-set recipes.
The Power Defrost and Bread Defrost are time-savers for busy home cooks, and cleaning up is painless too, thanks to a non-stick ceramic enamel interior that is certified to have up to 99.9 per cent antibacterial properties.
The Samsung Colour Series Microwave Oven retails at $249 (solo microwave) and $319 (grill microwave), available at the Samsung Online Store and major consumer electronics & IT stores.
Pretty in Pink
This edition of the Ruhens V water purifier, with its sleek contours and baby pink hue, is a far cry from its boxy impersonal counterparts. It offers five different temperature controls, so you can get iced water for a cold brew, or warm water for making tea. At just 16cm wide, it’ll fit easily even into the tightest of spaces.
The Ruhens V retails at $2,599 at Ruhens’ showroom.
Garden of Eden
Scent your home with the Thann Eden Breeze diffuser, which is formulated with jasmine and rose notes to uplift your spirits and soothe the senses. Pleasantly floral and light, the scent recalls a lush garden in full bloom.
Bring out your inner barista with the La Specialista, De’Longhi’s latest espresso machine that enables you to precisely handcraft your coffee just the way you like it. You’ll get a great brew every time, thanks to its sensor grinding technology and smart tamping station that deliver consistent results and less mess. Plus, there are separate heating systems for the water and milk, so you won’t have to wait for a cuppa!
The La Specialista coffee machine retails at $1,199 at all leading departmental and electronic stores.
