Kitchen and laundry appliances from Fisher & Paykel Appliances were showcased recently on Channel Nine’s The Block show.
Channel Nine’s The Block: Fans vs Faves had more than two million people tuning in to watch for the big kitchen reveal. Brad and Dale’s kitchen and laundry featured Fisher & Paykel appliances.
While the judges were critical of the lighting in Brad and Dale’s kitchen, Kara May, Marketing Manager for Fisher & Paykel commented that the duo had used Fisher & Paykel appliances very effectively, including placing a DishDrawer in a ‘butler’s pantry’ with the cleaning area hidden from view.
According to Kara May, Fisher & Paykel designs products so they can be distributed where the homeowner wants them, rather than in a traditional work triangle. Kitchen appliances such as the CoolDrawer and DishDrawer in particular, accommodate this new way of thinking about kitchen design, allowing complete design freedom.
The kitchen showed the audience how Fisher & Paykel appliances were specifically designed to match, with consistency across all design touchpoints such as handles, finishes and added details such as a sleek stainless steel strip, which looked stunning in the kitchen.
Brad and Dale’s kitchen featured a Fisher & Paykel CoolDrawer, DishDrawer Tall, a 60cm pyrolytic oven, steam oven, combination microwave oven, gas on glass cooktop and 90cm French door ice & water refrigerator.
Fisher & Paykel’s laundry appliances proved to be a big winner for the boys in the guest bathroom/laundry reveal, which featured the stunning new WashSmart Front Loader designed to perfectly match Fisher & Paykel’s new AeroXL 8kg Condenser Dryer.
The new Front Loader employs the unique Vortex Wash, which is a new washing action that uses the force of the spinning drum to force the sudsy water through the clothes to enhance wetting, cleaning clothes quicker.
The Condenser Dryer uses condensing technology so water is collected instead of being vented out meaning there are less allergens and moisture going into the home resulting in a healthier environment, particularly for those with asthma or other respiratory illnesses.
Fisher & Paykel appliances have featured in Block kitchens and laundries for a number of years.
