The new modular Fisher & Paykel CoolDrawer allows you to customize your refrigeration. For example, at -13 F it can can be a deep freezer, while at 53 F it can be used as a wine drawer for long-term storage.

Appliance technology continues to advance in leaps and bounds. What may have seemed state-of-the-art a year ago can often be surpassed by new developments, so it pays to think ahead when choosing new appliances.

Fisher & Paykel's latest offerings are designed to future proof your kitchen. Laurence Mawhinney, vice president sales and marketing, says the new OB30 oven is indicative of the futuristic technology now coming on stream.

"This 30-inch model, which was released at this year's KBIS Show, is not your typical oven. With its accurate and intelligent electronic temperature controls, the oven can adapt and determine the precise temperature required to deliver a consistent cooking result."

Mawhinney says the OB30 was built with the cook's needs in mind. The oven has numerous user-friendly features, nine cooking modes and a high-tech True Convection system for even heat distribution. It also has a large, 3.5cu ft capacity so you can cook several dishes simultaneously.

The easy-to-use controls incorporate illuminated color rings around the knobs. These change from red to white when the desired temperature has been reached.

Refrigeration is also in the spotlight. Fisher & Paykel's new CoolDrawer is a natural extension of the company's renowned DishDrawer concept. This modular drawer refrigerator allows you to customize your refrigeration, and position it exactly where you need it. Mawhinney says the CoolDrawer helps streamline meal preparation and has clear ergonomic benefits stored items can be reached easily without bending.

"But, most importantly, the refrigeration can be personalized at the simple touch of a button. The drawers can be programmed to freeze or chill food or wine at the desired temperature."

The drawers are available in stainless steel, or they can be fully integrated into kitchen cabinets for a seamless look.
