Uniting Sophisticated Design with Powerful and Precise Smart Inverter Technology, High-performance Microwave Offers a Range of User-friendly Features


Combining a convenience-enhancing design with a touch of subtle minimalism and the latest Smart Inverter technology from LG Electronics (LG), the NeoChef™ takes culi-nary and microwave ovens to a new level. Implementing the latest design trends, the microwave is both minimalistic and accessible, instantly bringing a touch of class to any kitchen. The ergonomic NeoChef™ sports features a simplified intuitive control inter-face to streamline operation and a range of hygiene-enhancing features such as Anti-Bacterial EasyClean™ that help users keep their ovens as clean as possible.


The elegant LG NeoChef™ eliminates trim and parting lines with its sleek, unified tem-pered glass front. This minimalist, glossy front combines with a refined matte exterior to allow the NeoChef™ to seamlessly blend in with the decor of any kitchen. The ex-quisite contrast between the microwave’s unified tempered glass and metal give it a dis-tinguished, refined look. The ergonomically designed rounded pocket-style handle and diamond cut dial weds form to function to deliver the ultimate in precision and user-convenience. The NeoChef™ extends its usability enhancing features into input with its simple intuitive sliding touch control which simplifies operation.

Equipped with LG’s unique Smart Inverter, there’s no cooking job the NeoChef™ can’t handle. Using linear power control between 300 to 1,200 watts to evenly cook or defrost food all the way through, the Smart Inverter effectively preserves nutrients while locking in flavor. The Smart Inverter also boosts efficiency, as its 1200-watt maximum power output gives the NeoChef™ the ability to cook dishes more quickly than conventional models.


In addition, the NeoChef™ can be used for melting ingredients such as chocolate or cheese and precisely preparing a variety of foods with its specialized settings. LG’s ad-vanced microwave can even be used to make healthy, lactobacilli-infused yogurt more quickly than most home yogurt makers. The microwave’s Healthy Fry feature1 is even capable of preserving the distinct taste of each dish while making them healthier, with less oil and 72 percent less fat.2


The NeoChef™ also packs a number of features designed to increase cleanliness and streamline the cooking experience. The Anti-Bacterial EasyClean™ Coating makes cleaning the microwave interior simple and straightforward. The microwave’s interior can be thoroughly cleaned twice as fast and with half the effort3 required for conven-tional microwaves. In fact, it takes just three wipes to thoroughly clean the NeoChef™ while conventional microwaves typically require seven. The coating also makes it harder for dangerous contaminants to take root, eliminating 99.99 percent of harmful bacteria.4


Equipped with a number of convenience-enhancing features, the NeoChef™ makes it easy to prepare complex dishes. Its innovative hexagonal stable turntable offers in-creased stability to the turntable with its six points of support, solving the issue of pos-sible spillage when the food being cooked is not exactly centered. With energy efficient interior LED lamp that is three times brighter than conventional models, users can easily monitor the entire cooking process.5 While the NeoChef™ is the same size as its prede-cessor, it offers users greater interior cooking capacity. With its compact exterior size, the microwave is at home in any kitchen while it is still able to accommodate large and tall dishes with its increased internal capacity.


“With a minimalist design that appeals to consumers of all stripes, LG’s striking micro-wave oven represents the company’s dedication to creating appliances that can add both functionality and class to any kitchen,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG Electron-ics and Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company. “Powered by LG’s unique Smart Inverter technology, the microwave efficiently and effectively reheats and defrosts food, decreases cooking times and makes it easier than ever for users to prepare delicious, highly-nutritious meals.”
