Technology Collides With Appliances In Siemens’ iQ700 studioLine Range

Combining compact design with technological innovation and intelligent features… this is the studioLine by Siemens.

Is it possible to have appliances with high-quality, minimalist design while being packed with leading technology? That is exactly what Siemens has set out to achieve with its latest range of products – iQ700 studioLine.

The range will appeal to those with a design eye, as its sleek style will integrate seamlessly into the slickest of kitchens. But more than just good looks, each of the new appliances in the range feature unique automation and intelligent cooking technologies.

Proving the outstanding quality and functionality of the Siemens studioLine range is the fact that it was recently awarded an iF Design Award 2018.

So what is the new technology exactly?

One new feature is the varioSpeed, which makes the iQ700 studioLine ovens with integrated microwave a truly flexible time management tool. This works by activating the microwave alongside hot-air cooking, speeding up the cooking time by up to 50 per cent, all without losing any of the flavour or nutrients.

Another outstanding feature is the coolStart function. With this, you can simply place frozen food or meals straight into the oven and coolStart will condense the whole process into a single cooking session.

Other functions include a full mix of pre-loaded cooking type options, which allows the oven to automatically optimise the heat for the best results possible, while sensor technology controls the baking process by monitoring moisture levels in the oven.

Add into the mix the latest in pyrolytic self-cleaning and the Siemens iQ700 studioLine range is an inspiring and innovative option for the kitchen.
