The press release below is a press release issued by LG Electronics Inc. during the IFA Berlin 2014 Consumer Electronics Fair. Please be advised that the availability of products and features shown at IFA are yet to be determined for Australia.


SEOUL, Sep. 4, 2014 ― At IFA 2014 in Berlin, LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing its Lightwave Convection Oven equipped with the cutting-edge Charcoal Lighting Heater™ for tastier dishes in the comforts of one’s home. With the double functionality of a microwave and an oven, LG’s Lightwave Convection Oven is easy to use and offers greater cooking flexibility than traditional ovens. The state-of-the-art microwave functions bring out the aspiring gourmet chef in even casual meal makers by giving meals a delicious, oven-cooked quality.

Convection Oven

The Charcoal Lighting Heater™ is a revolutionary innovation that helps to keep food tasting great. Using a charcoal filament, this LG technology emits a rapid flow of intensive heat deep into the dish, which not only makes cooking faster, but due to its fast heat dispersion, creates crispy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside dishes.


“The Charcoal Lighting Heater™ represents a big step forward in home cooking,” said Seong-jin Jo, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance Company. “In terms of cooking food, this technology really is a game changer. It helps to minimise nutrient-loss that can occur in traditional ovens during the cooking process. On top of that, the oven has a raft of convenience enhancing functions designed to make life a whole lot easier in the kitchen.”


LG is also showcasing its new grill and solo models equipped with its ease of cleaning technology at IFA. LG’s breakthrough EasyClean™ coating reduces much of the effort required to remove food residue. It also helps prevent grime from sticking to the interior walls, which makes keeping the oven clean much easier.


Visitors to IFA 2014 are encouraged to see LG’s unique Lightwave Convection Oven for themselves in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin from September 5-10.
