DESSERTS AND COCKTAILS - SMEG BLITZES IT ON SUMMER TREATS!
Bench top appliances are no longer the clunky kitchen work-horses prided on their routine efficiency! Designer style, high-end technology and a jelly-bean mix of authentic retro colour are all key to the very latest must-have appliances – and Italian brand Smeg is leading the pack.
Smeg's retro-style blender - awarded the international Red Dot Design Award 2016 - and stand mixer, just two fo its more than six benchtop appliances, will take pole position in this summer's menu of spectacular desserts and luscious cocktails.. Not only will they introduce eye-catching style to any kitchen but they take the effort out of even the most complicated recipe.
Smeg is predicting frozen cocktails, Daiquiris and Berry Bursts will top the drinks list while Coconut/Mango Popsicles and fruit and nut Bliss Balls will tantalise our taste buds. Desserts will be luscious and fruitful - think Earl Grey and Chocolate Vegan Cheesecake and Mixed Berry and Coconut Layer Cake.
The message is “Don’t be fooled by the labour-intensive-sounding name”! The more exotic the name the faster it can be to make – with the right appliances, says Smeg.
Frozen cocktails and fruity popsicles are whipped up in the Smeg blender in a matter of seconds – use the unique ice crush function to reduce large cubes to a cocktail crush and then add the other ingredients. The Smoothie function on the blender will sense the consistency of the contents and adjust its speed accordingly – creating a smooth, perfectly mixed cocktail. The soft start feature meanwhile, will ensure no splatters and very even blending and mixing.
The Stand Mixer, a picture of sublime design, is also a highly awarded design icon having won the iF International Design Award and the GOOD DESIGN Award from the Chicago Athenaeum in 2015.
This mixer sets new benchmarks in terms of power and versatility and ensures any dessert recipe is within even the most rank amateur’s reach. Attributes of the stand mixer include 800W high torque motor, 10 speed variable power and the all important soft start (no more splatters when starting at a high speed) and a planetary mixing action to ensure all areas of the bowl are reached. There is also a low-speed front attachment hub for optional attachments such as pasta roller and cutters.
So layer cakes, cheesecakes and teacakes are……… a piece of cake!
Smeg small domestic appliances – kettle, stand mixer, toasters and blender – are available nationally from David Jones, Myer and Harvey Norman. Appliances are available in a choice of Pastel Green, Pastel Blue, Pastel Pink, Red, Panna (Cream), Black and Silver.
