Features of product awarded

G-LINE a series of "drop-in" modular-type cookers for high-end kitchens. Users can freely combine and configure multiple components according to their lifestyles. Due to the large number of high-rise condominiums buildings in city centers occupied by non-Japanese residents, the cookers have pictorial and parameter-based operating instructions rather than written ones. The glass touch-panel operating console looks sophisticated and is easy to clean. The stoves can be used in island kitchens in full view of living areas without detriment to esthetic appearances. The gas module uses full-cover burner grates to provide stability for all pots, big and small. And the IH module features a stylish design that looks great in kitchens filled with overseas products.
