03 Aug 15 Fisher & Paykel ActiveSmart 36″ French Door Refrigerator


Introducing the next generation in Fisher & Paykel refrigeration. With new flush-fit design and the ability to easily slide into existing kitchen spaces or be integrated behind kitchen cabinetry, these family-size refrigerators offer a seamless look to the kitchen while providing excellent food care with ActiveSmart technology.

ActiveSmart consists of a microprocessor, interior temperature sensors, independently controlled variable speed fans and multiple air ducts. The microprocessor controls how the refrigerator operates based on changing patterns of use. The sensors continuously send information to the microprocessor, which analyses and adjusts the fan speed and compressor operations accordingly to deliver a consistent and stable temperature. Continuous feedback means that ActiveSmart adjusts to the way you live. Its ability to respond to daily use means that it only uses the energy needed to keep your food fresher for longer.

Contemporary kitchens are living spaces. Part of this evolution is increasingly refined design, flush fit cabinetry and appliances that enhance ergonomics as well as provide options to either showcase through crisp stainless steel or combine through custom panel finishes. Our built-in series is designed to be seamless.

The Humidity Control System, together with the cool and consistent temperature delivered by ActiveSmart Technology, creates the perfect microclimate for your produce.

Sensors constantly record changes to fridge and freezer compartments, including when the doors are opened and when new items are introduced, ensuring temperature in each compartment is kept constant.

Independent variable-speed fans control airflow through multiple air ducts to all compartment as well as rapid chill and freezing to ensure food safety and maintain food quality. Fisher & Paykel.

12 Dec 14 Fisher & Paykel 36″ flush gas on steel cooktop


The new 36″ Flush Gas on Steel Cooktop from Fisher & Paykel offers a seamless design for the integrated kitchen, with 5 burners sitting below the countertop for a smooth line. This cooktop is subtle, unobtrusive and designed to match the family of Fisher & Paykel kitchen appliances. The power levels are for cooking everything from a slow simmer for sauces, to an intense heat for steaks and stir-fries.

The 5 burners are designed to provide the utmost cooking flexibility and include
– 3,800 BTU auxiliary burner
– 8,500 BTU semi-rapid burner
– 8,500 BTU semi-rapid burner
– 9,500 BTU rapid burner
– 18,500 BTU dual wok burner

The brushed stainless steel offers a modernist aesthetic with design for durability, matching the rest of our family of kitchen appliances. And by turning the dials for the auto-ignition system, the flame ignites quickly and safely. Fisher & Paykel Innovalve technology allows you to adjust the flame with 180 degree gas valve rotation compared with 70 degree in most gas cooktops for accurate temperature control.

The control knobs glow red when on, and white when off, showing at a distance which burners are lit. The auto-reignition system means you don’t have to hold down a dial while burners ignite and if a burner goes out, it is automatically relit at the original flame setting.

The Fisher & Paykel 36″ flush gas on steel cooktops are designed as a single piece of laser cut stainless steel with quick component removal for easy cleaning. Durable and easy to clean, cast iron trivets provide a safe and stable cooking surface. Rubber feet prevent the trivets scratching the cooktop. Available in the United States and Canada in January 2015. Fisher & Paykel.
