LAS VEGAS, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics is reinventing style at home and helping consumers elevate their culinary skills with the chic design and professional-grade features of the new LG Studio Series™ suite of built-in cooking and counter-depth refrigeration kitchen appliances.
LG's new suite of premium appliances brings together ranges, wall ovens, warming drawers, cooktops, hoods, microwave ovens, refrigerators and dishwashers, as well as home laundry innovations – in an impressive new design package that will make a bold statement in any home.
In addition to its sophisticated style and energy efficiency, the Studio Series line represents the very best kitchen appliances that LG has to offer, featuring LG's unique core technologies including Linear Compressor™, UltraHeat™ and InfraGrill™. The Studio Series line will be on display at the 2011 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in the LG Hausys booth (#C6702), April 26-28, 2011.
"The introduction of our Studio Series line gives consumers the opportunity to experience LG's cutting-edge core technologies packaged with award-winning style and design," explains Sam Kim, president of Home Appliances, LG Electronics USA, Inc. "Studio Series represents LG's most premium appliances and offers an uncompromising approach to design and function that will create the ultimate kitchen experience in any home."
All LG Studio Series appliances come with a premium stainless steel finish, including distinct door handles that add a unique, sophisticated look.
LG's Studio Series counter-depth refrigerators are available in 4-Door, 3-Door, and Side-by-Side configurations in order to meet consumers' space and organization needs. ENERGY STAR® qualified, these models combine energy efficiency, stylish design and advanced technology.
All LG Studio Series refrigerators incorporate LG's extra-tall ice and water dispensing center. With an easy-access water tap and a slide-out pitcher rest, the water dispenser area is the industry's tallest measuring 12.6 inches, making it convenient to fill uniquely shaped and assorted sized pitchers and glasses. Select LG Studio Series refrigerators feature the company's innovative Slim SpacePlus™ ice system that provides more usable shelf space and makes way for additional door bin space. For an ultra-premium design, Studio Series Side-by-Side refrigerators feature unique horizontally-brushed stainless steel lines, presenting a brighter, more attractive finish that easily matches other stainless steel appliances.
Every LG Studio Series oven boasts a brilliant blue interior cavity for an added touch of sophistication, and features some of the largest oven capacities available. The line includes both single and double oven ranges and built-in wall ovens. The double oven models enable consumers to cook different meals, at different temperatures, at the same time and feature the industry's tallest upper oven, measuring six inches high, allowing home chefs to bake and broil tall items such as a Bundt cake or a rack of lamb without having to preheat the larger oven.
LG's built-in wall ovens feature LG's exclusive Convection System that delivers the ideal temperature and airflow for faster preheating and uniform cooking with four convection options – Convection Bake, Roast, Crisp and Healthier Roast. A 6.3-inch intuitive LCD control system delivers added cooking convenience and greater ease of use including access to a pre-loaded Gourmet Recipe Bank that lets users scroll through recipe choices across ten food categories: breakfast, appetizer, salad, soup, meat, poultry, seafood, vegetarian, meat and dessert.
Studio Series represents the very best appliances that LG has to offer and features LG's unique core technologies. All Studio Series appliances are backed with a two-year warranty.
In many homes, the refrigerator could be listed as one of the top three items for energy consumption. To achieve maximum efficiency in its ENERGY STAR-rated Studio Series models, LG redesigned the refrigerator’s compressor, which is the element that uses the most energy. Typically, the refrigerator’s compressor is either running at full capacity or off completely. LG’s Linear Compressor varies output depending on need, leading to fewer temperature swings and saving consumers eight to 17 percent in energy usage versus previous models with conventional compressors. Because the Linear Compressor motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor separately with a 10-year warranty.
LG’s unique InfraGrill™ system is one of the first oven technologies to utilize infrared heating elements – the same technology as premium outdoor grills – keeping food juicier than traditional thermal cooking. These sophisticated heating elements enable the oven to reach broil temperature more quickly, cutting cooking time by 30 percent for popular foods like hamburgers and chicken breasts.
High Heat Cooking
UltraHeat™ is one of the most powerful burners available on a freestanding range. At 19,000 BTUs, this burner enables consumers to bring large amounts of water to a rapid boil, resulting in faster cooking time. Home chefs will enjoy the flexibility to cook gourmet meals on heat settings that range from 5,000 BTUs for a slight simmer to a 19,000 BTU UltraHeat center burner, making it easier to achieve great cooking results.
Studio Series Laundry Innovations
The LG Studio Series also includes an advanced line of washers and dryers that offers superior performance and energy efficiency through LG technology. Such innovations include TrueSteam™ Technology that provides outstanding cleaning performance along with steam-specific cycles that help reduce wrinkles, odors and allergens; LG's TrueSteam offers 21 percent more cleaning power than other leading brands' steam cycle. LG's 6Motion™ technology also helps get clothes cleaner with six different wash motions that work to remove dirt while still being gentle on fabrics. The intuitive control panel on these ENERGY STAR washers allows for quick and easy programming thanks to the large color LCD display with touch control buttons which provide instructions and diagnostics, while offering updates on the cycle status and time remaining.
