LG SOLARDOM HELPS CUT COOKING TIME TO MAXIMISE SUMMER FUN

With daylight savings and summer just around the corner, LG encourages you to move outside and enjoy the fresh, summer evenings with the convenience provided by the SolarDOM Light Wave Oven – the three-in-one countertop cooking appliance that helps you cook fast and tasty meals without spending hours in the kitchen.

Sydney, 8 September 2008: With daylight savings and summer just around the corner, LG encourages you to move outside and enjoy the fresh, summer evenings with the convenience provided by the SolarDOM Light Wave Oven – the three-in-one countertop cooking appliance that helps you cook fast and tasty meals without spending hours in the kitchen.

This stylish Oven, Grill and Microwave unit allows cooks to achieve the rich taste provided by a conventional oven, except at the lighting speed of a conventional microwave. This means that cooking time is reduced and thanks to the high temperature, moisture and nutrients are contained within the food resulting in nutritious, tender and juicy meals. Irena Stojceska, Category Manager Cooking Appliances LG Electronics, says the LG SolarDOM is ideal for last minute dinner parties and fuss-free entertaining.

“Summer is the perfect time for alfresco dining and people want to entertain their friends and family without slaving over a hot stove. Specifically developed to save time, the LG SolarDOM features revolutionary technology that not only conserves nutrients in your cooking, but offers economical benefits thanks to its quick cooking times,” she said.

The compact light wave oven utilises light waves created by a combination of different type of heaters - Halogen, Sheath and Ceramic, each with different heating depth ensuring that food is cooked evenly. Heat is circulated more efficiently because of the round cavity and the light reflector, which concentrates light waves on the food. Using Halogen heating, generates heat quicker, therefore eliminating the need for preheating.

The SolarDOM (MP-9483SLA) also includes the following features:

• 34L Capacity: Large capacity to cater for unexpected guests or dinner parties

• 3-in-1 cooking appliance: Combining three cooking functions (oven, grill and microwave) for quick and tasty cooking

• Five Speed Combis: For better cooking control

• Round Cavity: For easy cleaning This summer, spend more time doing the things you love with the innovative SolarDOM and tasty alfresco entertaining recipes from LG.

The LG SolarDOM is available nationally – RRP $1,249.
