- 02, 22 2017
SINGAPORE, February 22, 2017 — A microwave oven that can bake pottery? Yes, that is the NeoChef™ by LG Electronics (LG). Acclaimed ceramic artist Daniel Les puts the oven to the test, and found that the impossible is possible. With LG Smart Inverter’s uniform and carefully controlled heating that reaches up to 1,100 watts, the microwave oven can bake something as delicate as glaze-on handcrafted pottery.

Combining LG’s Smart Inverter technology and ergonomic design, the new NeoChef™ brings microwave ovens to a whole new level by implementing the latest innovation and design trends that will instantly add a touch of class to any modern kitchen.
Smart Inverter Ensures Even Heating and Quick Defrosting
Thanks to LG’s unique Smart Inverter technology, the NeoChef™ is able to prepare a wider variety of dishes with better results, using its linear power control between 300 to 1,100 watts that can 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 1,100-watt maximum power output gives the NeoChef™ the ability to cook dishes more quickly than conventional models.
Tempered Glass Design to Complement Any Kitchen
The elegant LG NeoChef™ eliminates trim and parting lines with its sleek, unified tempered glass front. This minimalist, glossy front combined with a refined matte exterior to allow the NeoChef™ to seamlessly blend in with the decor of any kitchen. The exquisite contrast between the microwave’s unified tempered glass and metal give it a distinguished, refined look. Marrying form and function, the ergonomic pocket-style handle and diamond-cut dial promise precision and user convenience.
Hexagonal Ring for Increased Stability
The NeoChef™ makes it easy to prepare complex dishes. Its innovative hexagonal stable turntable offers increased stability to the turntable with its six points of support, compared to conventional microwaves with only three points. This solves the issue of possible spillage when the food being cooked is not exactly centered. With an energy-efficient interior LED lamp that is three times brighter than conventional models1, users can easily monitor the entire cooking process.
Healthier Treats with the Oven’s Nifty Features
In addition, the NeoChef™ with its specialized settings can be used for melting ingredients such as chocolate or cheese and preparing a variety of foods. LG’s advanced microwave can even be used for fermenting to make healthy, lactobacilli-infused yogurt more quickly than most home yogurt makers. The microwave’s Healthy Fry feature2 is capable of preserving the distinct taste of each dish while making them healthier, using less oil and 72 percent less fat.3
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 effort4 required for conventional 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.5
Compact Size, Bigger Capacity
While the size of NeoChef™ is almost similar to its predecessors, it offers users greater interior cooking capacity6. This means that with its compact exterior size, the microwave can easily fit into various kitchen while still being able to accommodate large and tall dishes due to the increased internal capacity.
Easy-to-use Touch Function for Maximum Convenience
The NeoChef™ extends its usability enhancing features with its simple intuitive sliding touch control which simplifies input operation. The advanced microwave has received multiple world-renowned design awards including the 2015 PIN UP Design Award and the 2015 Good Design Award.
“With a minimalist design that appeals to consumers of all stripes, LG’s striking new microwave oven represents the company’s dedication to creating appliances that can add both functionality and class to any kitchen,” said Jay Yang, Home Appliances Product Director of LG Electronics Singapore. “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.”
The NeoChef™ microwave ovens come in three models: 25-litre solo unit (S$299); 25-litre grill unit (S$399); and 39-litre convection unit (S$969). They are available at Audio House, Best Denki, Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman, Mega Discount Store and other LG authorized retailers.
