STEEL world first

The STEEL Mistral is the first stove in the world, in which an oven, induction hob and cooktop extractor is combined. The brushless high-performance motor, has an extraction capacity of 700m3/per hour spread over four positions with a maximum noise level of only 63dB. As a result, cooking air is extracted very effectively and silently.FLEXzone induction technology can of course be operated by extremely solid solid steel control knobs, which are of course placed at the front of the stove. These are not only easy to operate the induction zones, but also provide more space on the induction hob.

The Mistral is standard equipped with carbon filters, suitable for plasma technology and air extraction directly to the outside.

The multifunctional convection oven has a net capacity of 91 liters and is equipped with the new and patented INNVENT ventilation technology. Two fans rotate in opposite directions, ensuring perfect hot air distribution over the entire surface on all levels.

The oven has a maximum temperature range of 315°C. The full color TFT screen is also electronically adjustable by means of control buttons and displays the core temperature of the dish if desired. The soft-close door hinges ensure a silent door closing.

Steel is an Italian company with a long family heritage. Situated in Carpi near Bologna and founded in 1999, it is owned and run by the Po family, who are the third generation to be involved in the production of range cooking equipment.

The original company was set up by Angelo Po in 1922 and his craftsmanship in stainless steel helped produce the first hand made stoves and later, the production of high quality appliances for restaurants.

Today Steel has come to the forefront of the manufacture of range cookers and hoods for the domestic market. Innovation and functionality are the byword for Steel’s aesthetic designs and professional approach to kitchen products.

As Steel has grown, so has the importance of their own brand names such as Genesi, Ascot and Sintesi and there is also a range of semi-professional barbecues and out-door cooking equipment.

High-speed hairdryer unveiled by Laifen

The Laifen Swift hairdryer features a typical vortex-style jet architecture with a brushless motor that spins at 110,000 RPM at airspeeds of 22m/s – more than six times the air pressure of traditional hairdryers.

To prevent severe heat, each heat setting is also thermo-controlled and checked 100 times every second.

The engine has a 1,000-hour life cycle and should last about 15 years, Laifen explains. This, according to the company, is four times the normal lifespan of a brush motor, which is around 250 hours.

The hairdryer includes clever heat controls, meaning the thermal sensor changes the temperature of the air it blows out 30 times per second to prevent overheating and damage to hair

Depending on the mode, an LED ring surrounds the outside of the hairdryer. Blue light indicates cool air, the orange light indicates warm air, and a red light indicates maximum heat, which is ideal for quick drying and styling.

The air filter is located on the handle of the hairdryer and is magnetically attached, making it extremely easy to remove fluff and dust. Because of its positioning and tiny air filter pores, this also prevents hair from being sucked into the hairdryer.

The handle has two buttons: one for turning it on and toggling between the two-speed settings, and the other for switching between cool, warm, and hot modes. A nozzle that magnetically mounts to the front of the hairdryer is included for more focused airflow.
