We invited to Midea kitchen appliances launch at OTKB better known as Olive Tree Kitchen & Bar.
With the kind of lifestyle homes are having now, it is just right to upgrade those old kitchen appliances. I admit that at home the only high-end kitchen appliance is the basic rice cooker that I bought when I was at Hongkong. Actually it’s a Midea brand and I am happy that I was able to replace our rice cooker here at home with this one.
We still use gas stove for cooking and the typical pressure cooker. We even boil our water with kettle and place at the gas stove.
Yes! Our home is one oldies that everything need of upgrading to help having such easy to use appliances and making life easy.
Common thinking that this new kitchen appliances are expensive to buy and expensive when it comes to electric consumption. Nevertheless, with Midea Kitchen appliances they pointed out that with Midea you do not have to worry about the price because they very affordable than the branded one. That they can deliver the same benefits of usage like the known brands.
“While meal preparation appears to be such a mundane part of our daily tasks, it actually has considerable weight in our way of life because it affects how we manage our time and, more importantly, our health and well being,” said Phillip Trapaga, General Manager of Midea Philippines during the product launch event.
According to Trapaga, there are three essential factors that are considered when cooking: meal preparation, nutritional value, and cost.
He added, “Midea’s new kitchen range presents solutions for each of these.”
Celebrity Chef Rob Pengson, a special guest during the event, shared some insights about his ideal kitchen.
He said, “A handy kitchen is composed of appliances that provide the best-tasting meals without compromising energy efficiency and affordability.”
He continued: “Most of the time, nutrition and affordability are sacrificed in favor of easier food preparation. But cooking is really more of an art. Once you’ve found the right tools, you can pretty much create whatever masterpiece you want without sacrificing quality. It is all about investing in the right kitchen partners.”
Included in Midea’s newest kitchen line are the microwave oven, induction cooker, multi-cooker, rice cooker, and kettles.
