The distinctive design feature of this microwave oven is the marsala-red leather element next to the grey door handle of anodised metal. The purpose of the design was to provide the microwave oven with a luxurious and unusual appearance to assure its entry into the premium segment of the market. In the interior, several sensors are located which determine the weight, humidity and temperature of the food to be heated, and adjust the cooking time automatically. The oven can also communicate with a smartphone and has six cooking modes with microwave, grill and steaming function.

Statement by the Jury

Integration of leather next to the door handle is innovative and catches the eye. Craftsman convinces further with intelligent, sensor-based functionality.
