Ho Ho Ho into our new Aussie style Christmas pudding

Traditions of Christmas are many, but for the most part they centre around the kitchen. Cooking, laughing, eating, talking and enjoying family and friends.

Famous are the recipes Mum and Grandma have passed down through the family.
Australia switching to decimal currency in 1963 saw the end of the days of the hot Christmas pudding with a sixpence hidden inside as a secret treasure.

Gone too are the days of the formal dining room as the current trend is for the kitchen to be the heart of the home, where we eat, play and enjoy life together.

Make Christmas cooking a joy with Kleenmaid’s clever appliance designs and innovations.

In our hot Aussie climate sweating over a hot cooktop and oven at Christmas can be very unpleasant but this is made totally enjoyable with Kleenmaid’s next generation cooking collection.
Boasting inspiring innovative features such as ovens which radiant very little external heat to the kitchen due to cleaver European engineering and materials which reduce heat transfer to the exterior of the oven.
Oven functions such as “boost” which cut the preheating time of an oven to one third of the time of an normal oven.

Heat free Induction cooking.

Induction cooktops too are remarkable in that it is the cooking vessel, the pot or pan that gets hot, not the cooktop. When you are done cooking there is no residual heat radiating from your cooktop.

Note here that it is the frypan that is getting hot and cooking the egg not the cooktop. The egg on the cooktop, yoke and all is uncooked as there is no heat in the cooktop.

Heat free Combi-Microwave, roast chicken and vegetables.

What about a fully roasted Christmas chicken and vegetables, done in 35 mins in the Kleenmaid Combi-Microwave. This marvel combines microwave cooking for the inside of the food with traditional convection oven cooking for the outside. Perfectly golden brown on the outside, beautifully moist on the inside. No heat in the kitchen and yes, 35minutes is all it will take.
