Home' Abode : November 23 Contents THE HERALD
As a nation obsessed with good food and
dining, the much talked about "cocooning"
trend is providing budding Australian
cooks with the chance to blossom.
Glem Gas has released a new series of
state-of-the-art Italian cookers, the Glem
Monolith range. Built with Italian flair, the
range includes three wide-format upright
cookers and has been designed to offer
home cooks features that equal those of
"As a nation of foodies, it looks like a
recession will not diminish our obsession
with good food," says Emilia Glem gen-
eral manager David Gilmore. "The wide
range of cooking programs on television
is helping to inspire home chefs to cook
new and adventurous dishes, and to regard
cooking as more of a hobby than a chore.
"This, combined with the pinch of
rising costs, has led to more and more
Australians choosing to show off their
skills by wining and dining friends and
family at home, as opposed to the more
expensive restaurant option."
The stainless steel design and pro-
fessional appearance of the cookers
replicates a restaurant-style kitchen at
home. The cookers have high-perform-
ance 90 cm gas cooktops with flush
cast-iron trivets. Along with four burners
and an additional centre triple-ring wok
burner, the cooktop provides ample space
to cook substantial family meals with large
pans or woks, as well as smaller burners
for simmering and lower-heat cooking
tasks. The 116-litre capacity ovens offer
home cooks a choice between multifunc-
tional electric ovens or the exclusive Bi
Energyselect oven. This ultimate chef's
appliance, developed by Glem Gas in
Australia, offers home cooks the choice of
baking using either electricity or gas within
the one oven.
Roast meat can be cooked with the gas
oven, which seals in moisture, or dessert
cookies can be cooked with an electric
oven that produces dry heat, more suited
to cakes, pastries, bread and souffles.
Other features include triple glass panels
with a cool touch outer door, which are
removable for cleaning; full glass inner
door which is easy to wipe clean; touch
control digital programmer providing full
control over cooking times; single-hand
operation electronic ignition; and closed
door electric grilling.
The Bi-Energy Select 90 ML96GGESI is
$4999, the Professionista 90 ML96PROEI
$3999, and the Ceramica 90 ML96ECI

Convenient for lighter floor
cleans as well as hard-to-
reach spaces using the
unit, the compact and
lightweight Nilfisk two-
in-one stick vacuum makes light work of
small spills and incidental cleans.
With the benefit of non-marking
wheels to protect wooden floors, the
vacuum can be used to quickly run
over floors, collecting dust and grime.
Alternatively, the hand-held unit can be
used to clean more awkward spaces such
as car seats, furniture or tabletops.
Perfect for smaller mid-week cleaning
chores, the vacuum features a powerful
12-volt battery that can run for up to 20
minutes, allowing time to complete each
cleaning task. Without the burden of elec-
trical cables, the cordless vacuum can be
simply removed from its charging unit for
freedom to roam.
The vacuum uses a rotating brush
within the swivel-head nozzle to sweep
up dust, while turbo suction ensures
that any dirt and dust is collected into
the vacuum's container. The sleek, gun-
metal grey design is both stylish and
functional. Its slim-line profile allows
it to be stored in easy-to-access places
