Hoover has unveiled its first major new cooking collection for over two years with a range of smart, pyrolitic and steam ovens, as well as gas and induction hobs. Collection 3 comprises a total of 53 products, and features a distinctive new look with black glass or stainless steel finishes, LED display and varying design elements including handle composition, trim configuration and panel shape.
The ovens are available with 65litre to 78litre capacities and in single or double configurations, and offer multifunction cooking, with steam, pyrolitic or catalytic cleaning functionality. Some of the models are WiFi-connected, offering remote control, voice activation and access to 200 recipes.
In addition, the collection offers 20 gas and induction hobs ranging from 60cm to 75cm in width with four or five cooking zones. The gas products feature cast iron or enamel pan supports and wok burners, while induction models are either 60cm or 80cm wide, and have boosters or flexi zones. Two are WiFi connected offering remote control, pre-set functions and step-by-step recipes, and via the hobs' MyChef function, users can set specific modes.
"We've spent considerable time and resource ensuring Collection 3 meets both current and future consumer trends," said Nick Platt, Hoover's business director for built-in appliances. "As a leader in smart appliances, we wanted to build this tech into our new models to offer connected appliances that not just provide great performance but are at an accessible price point too. We know that people were cooking more during lockdown and our latest products mean that even the most amateur or nervous cooks can impress with their culinary talents thanks to support and guidance available through the accompanying app."
