Bosch presents GlassProtect, the induction cooktop with a special coating developed by their partner Schott that’s especially resistant to unsightly scratches caused by sand or sponges. Abrasive sponges often used to remove dried-on food from the cooktop can also behind scratches, as well as fine grains of sand can do. In addition, all types of metal objects pose a threat to the flawless surface of every glass-ceramic cooktop.
Not even GlassProtect can prevent all scratches, but it can prevent most of them. The special coating developed by the glass manufacturer Schott is approximately 95 percent more resistant to scratches caused by sand and about 70 percent more resistant to scratches caused by abrasive sponges than conventional glass-ceramic cooktops with no special coating.
The appliance with the GlassProtect surface is being presented as part of the Bosch carbon black product family in two versions: one model with the timeless ComfortProfile and one flush-mounted model for installation into the countertop. Both models are 80 centimetres wide and have a multi-purpose FlexInduction zone and three standard cooking zones.
DirectSelect Premium operation epitomizes modern operating standards. And with the Home Connect app, the extractor hood can be conveniently controlled via the cooktop, so there’s no more going back and forth while cooking. Moreover, the PerfectFry frying sensor ensures healthy frying thanks to its reliable temperature control that preserves vitamins and is gentle on cookware.

The new Bosch Series 6 ovens presents the Hotair 3D technology, which activates both the fan and the circular electric heating element located on the rear wall of the oven. Working in synergy, the fan quickly and evenly distributes the heat produced by the heating element which, expanding throughout the oven cavity, heats the cavity at 360° with a three-dimensional effect. “In this way – the company says – it is possible to cook different dishes on different levels, without any mixing of flavours and aromas, achieving perfect cooking results every time: whether it is a question of cooking a dish from the beginning, or regenerating, using the special function, dishes that have already been prepared or prepared the day before”. The new Bosch 6 Series ovens with steam pulses have a 220 ml removable water tank that can be easily refilled. The intensity of the steam pulses can be set manually, as required, or automatically. “Those who are new to the kitchen or want to simplify their daily cooking routine can let themselves be guided by the AutoPilot function – the company adds -. Thanks to the 30 pre-set automatic programmes, all you have to do is put the food in the oven, enter the weight, press Start and let AutoPilot do the rest: from choosing the most suitable function, with or without steam, to the temperature and duration, right through to turning the oven off when it is cooked”.
BSH Australia has appointed Andrew Jones as managing director, effective October 2021.
In April, BSH advised that current managing director, Philipp Walter will be taking on a new global role as operations manager for dish care based in Germany.
Bosch presented its new collection of dishwashers, which includes built-in and freestanding models. The numerous washing programs, designed for every need, together with the EcoSilence Drive brushless motor and new functions, guarantee an efficient use of water and energy. In addition, the models have the PerfectDry system with Zeolite, a mineral that absorbs the moisture to transform it into heat and lasts for the entire life of the product, regenerating itself during each cycle. This technology is completed with the 3D air flow, able to evenly distribute the heat generated by the Zeolite inside the dishwasher. Other pluses of the new dishwashers are: the Extra Clean Zone for intensive washing and the third Extra Space basket. Finally, the dishwashers can be connected via Wi-Fi to the Home Connect App to easily control and manage the functions directly from a smartphone, tablet or smartwatch and have some additional functions, available only via the app. Among the functions that can be managed remotely, there are: Favorite, Silence on Demand (to reduce the noise level), Easy Start (which guides user in choosing the most suitable washing program for the type of dishes loaded) etc. Thanks to the connection to the most popular voice assistants, it is possible to manage the dishwasher with voice control.
