Biggest ever Berlin showcase of smart and stylish solutions for the home

 

 

 

Berkshire, 02 September 2009 – This year at IFA, LG will showcase its biggest ever range of innovative and stylish home appliances including large volume washing machines, limited edition refrigerators, high-performance vacuum cleaners and intelligent cooking appliances. Connecting all products on show is LG’s approach to product design and innovation, centred around real consumer insights and embodied in the company’s ‘Simply Living’ ethos.

 

To see the entire product range, visit the LG booth at the IFA exhibition in Berlin 4 – 9 September [Messe Berlin GmbH. Hall 1.1, stand 103].

 

  Washing Machines

As a world’s first and in line with consumer attitudes towards laundry LG is launching its 11kg drum washing machine, the largest capacity washing machine with a standard sized footprint. Officially named the LG F1443KD and available in Q4 2009, it represents the top-of-the-range product in LG’s range of award-winning Direct Drive washing machines. 

 

The machine features an 11kg wash load and 78 litre drum volume in a standard 60cm footprint, offering total efficiency for extremely heavy-duty loads. Using LG’s patented ball bearing technology, the machine reduces vibration to less than 30ohms and drops the noise level to only 54dB, almost 20dB less than standard machines, making the washing experience less intrusive.

 

See separate release for further information.

  Cooking Appliances

 

LG will showcase its new Steam SolarCUBE (MP9289GST), whose light wave technology offers tasty, healthy, easy cooking without losing moisture and taste.

The Steam SolarCUBE offers the flexibility of an oven, grill, and microwave - its Speed Cook option combines all three cooking methods along with halogen light technology to cook up to three times faster compared to conventional ovens. The new model also offers high energy efficiency and its compact and stylish design looks great in any kitchen.

It is equipped with a bar that vibrates more than 3,000 times a minute to shake dust mites to the surface of the fabric, where they are removed by the vacuum action of the Compressor Plus.  The Sani Punch even helps to eliminate a significant amount of dust from below the fabric surface.
