ASKO Appliances (Australia) announces that its Pro Series Duo Fusion cooktop has been awarded a Good Design Award in the Domestic Appliances category. A cooktop innovation in the Australian market, Duo Fusion combines two energy sources – induction cooking and gas – in a single unit.

Featuring a minimalist design with simple graphics that blend into the background, ASKO’s Duo Fusion cooktop offers a wok burner with one simple dial made from Zamak. The understated appearance of Duo Fusion is aligned with ASKO’s Swedish brand heritage.

The new ASKO Fusion Volcano wok burner on the Duo Fusion allows the user to focus on wok cooking while relying on one of the auto programmes on the induction side of the cooktop to provide the flexibility of using two methods of cooking in the same unit. Home cooks can experience true wok cooking alongside the speed, safety and precision of induction cooking.

Expressing their delight at the win in the recent Good Design Awards, ASKO’s Marketing Director James Vogdanos said that Duo Fusion combines the best of two worlds with the dual energy sources. He added that the development of a new type of cooktop makes ASKO a worthy recipient of this award.

Key features of Duo Fusion cooktops also include a 57cm electric cooktop with four induction zones and a 33cm gas wok burner, combined into one piece of 6mm ceramic glass; and flexible Bridge Induction enabling the bridging of two cooking zones to create one large cooking zone, allowing optimisation of the cooking space through the use of each induction zone separately or together for larger pots and pans.

The Pro Series is available nationally through selected stores.
