Five reasons why we love the new Excellence Line by Swiss premium luxury appliance brand V-Zug
To complement smart modern homes of today, Swiss kitchen connoisseur V-Zug is launching a premium line of ovens and steam cookers to give homemakers, design lovers and technophiles a completely elevated experience in the kitchen.
Recently awarded the ‘Best of the Best’ award for Product Design by Red Dot 2021, V-Zug’s Excellence Line, launching in Singapore this October, is setting revolutionary standards for new-generation kitchen appliances by offering a puristic design, interactive interface and perfect results. Here we take a closer look at the winning features of this Excellent line of cooking appliances, worthy of any proud chef, home and away.
Seamless integration with any kitchen aesthetic
The Excellence Line appliances are based on a streamlined, uncluttered concept where mirrored glass fronts pick up on the surrounding colours and materials, seamlessly integrating into the overall living space. The convenience level V2000 and V40000 appliances are available in Black and Platinum, while selected professional V6000 models are available in an exclusive Pearl hue. All of the panels and associated design elements are harmonised across all of V-Zug’s products, which means that you can combine the Excellence Line with any permutation of Coffee-Centers, dishwashers or WineCoolers. Together, they represent a self-confident, elegant product family formed from a single mould.
Futuristic appliance controls with intuitive app
The centrepiece of the Excellent Line is a TouchDisplay with CircleSlider digital knob, a next-level rotary-push system, elegantly carved into the centre of the display panel. To operate it, you simply trace your finger across the slightly roughened surface to set the cooking process. All settings are indicated on the high-resolution colour display, allowing you to see which meals they are best suited from a database of over 100 dishes using the EasyCook function. During the cooking process, the CircleSlider displays the progress or the relevant cooking phase. This means you always know how far along the meal is. For ease of use, you can view the applications in widget format or list-view and save frequently-used functions and settings as ‘Favourites’.
An innovative AutoDoor
Unique and new to the market, the Excellence Line also features the world’s first intelligent door that opens and closes when a user activates the TouchDisplay. This innovation is ideal not only for effortless operation, but also means you don’t have to check on your cooking so often. More than that, the appliance can also automatically open ajar to let moisture escape or, if required, allow the oven to cool at the end of the process. AutoDoor provides the option of doing away with handles altogether, fitting in perfectly with handle-free kitchens. But if you’re more comforting with handles, you will enjoy the new ergonomic designs milled from a single piece of anodised aluminium and finished by bead-blasting and colour-anodising.
Improved illumination from the inside
All Excellence Line ovens, combi-steam cookers and CombairSteamers are fitted with recessed lights in the sides and ceiling of the cooking chamber to give your better clarity, even when baking on multiple levels. The V2000 and V4000 models use halogen lamps, while the higher-grade V6000 appliances are fitted with LED lights which are more energy-efficient and offer long lamp life.
A smart way to cooking
All Excellence Line appliances are communications-enabled and can be networked via the V-Zug app using a smartphone or tablet. The desired operating mode or an entire recipe can be selected in the app and sent directly to the appliance. The app also allows you to retrieve information about the temperature, remaining cooking time, current recipes, and receive a notification when the programme ends if you wish.
