Perfect Results

From a gentle, chocolate-tempering warmth to the intense heat required to sear a perfectly cooked steak, our luxury appliances deliver precision and control right across the temperature spectrum.


Melting chocolate without it becoming grainy calls for a gentle approach, heating on the pan at a consistent temperature below body heat. Induction cooking is ideal for maintaining a perfect 89°F melt.


Broccolini is a subtle ingredient but, with the right cooking techniques, contributes a sweet, earthy taste. Steaming at 212°F for just a few minutes will accentuate the flavor of broccolini while retaining its nutrients.


Scotch fillet is a well-marbled cut, perfect for roasting. Our Roast function sears the meat before introducing a more gentle heat to cook the fillet to perfection. Placing meat fattiest side up will help create the perfect exterior without the need to baste.

Choosing steam gives a chef the ability to cook dishes that are full of flavor, while preserving vitamins, minerals and textures. As a conductor of heat, steam is around eight times more efficient than dry heat (convection), which means reduced cooking times and lower cooking temperatures. With combination steam cooking, you can balance convection and steam with exceptional temperature accuracy, ideal for perfect roasting and the creation of a centrepiece dishes such as a whole-cooked snapper or salmon.

Sous Vide

Choosing sous vide removes the guesswork from cooking, so you can create perfect flavor and texture consistently. While sous vide means "under vacuum", the real hero of this cooking method is not the vacuum sealing of food (made effortless using a Fisher & Paykel vacuum seal drawer) but the precise control and uniformity of temperature afforded by the combination steam oven. Seal and sous vide premium cuts of meat to your preferred degree of edge-to-edge "doneness". Prepare in advance and hold without overcooking until you are ready to sear and serve.

A quick sear over high heat adds to the appearance, flavor and texture of food. While traditionally gas has been the medium of heat preferred by chefs for searing and other cooktop techniques, today induction technology is increasingly popular for the efficiency, responsiveness and precision it brings to the kitchen. Whichever solution you choose, our cooktops provide fingertip control of temperature, so you can achieve a perfect high heat sear while limiting splitting and avoiding burning.

From very high heats to very low, the contemporary cooktop is a kitchen workhorse that often plays a key role in preparing ingredients or finishing dish components. From melting chocolate at the exact low temperatures required for perfect tempering, to slowly sweating and sweetening onions, garlic, shallots and other humble vegetables into a flavorful mirepoix, sofrito or passata, low temperature cooking is best undertaken with the control and accuracy of responsive heat.
