Well-equipped kitchens


The style and appearance of a kitchen may help to make time spent in it more pleasant, but without good appliances and equipment the culinary results will be disappointing.

The professional in-house designers employed by kitchen appliance specialist Fujioh continually refine the form and function of appliances to meet the demands of today's consumers. Advantage Resources is the distributor of Fujihome and Fujioh products including cooker hobs, hoods, ovens, wine cellars, upright freezers, water purifiers and food waste disposal units.

The F1 series of stainless steel hobs is a new range that's been released by Advantage Resources. Two models have three gas burners, another has two burners, and all have a built-in, battery operated ignition system.

Hoods to match the hobs are especially designed for Asian cooking where the use of oil and spices can create greasy vapours. Fujioh cooker hoods have a high-frequency centrifugal fan with multiple blades. The hoods emit less than 50 decibels of noise and a silicon-coated aluminium filter captures and retains oil from cooking, keeping the kitchen ventilated and free of oily vapours. As a safety feature, an alarm in the hood buzzes if heat over a safe level comes from the stove. All parts of the hoods, which are made from rust-proof steel, are washable.

Advantage Resources also offers a range of ovens, including the Fujihome FH906 SS, which has seven different multifunctional settings. The oven has a light, electronic timer, digital clock and a mirror finish door. Its self-cleaning device operates at only 13 amps.


Safety is paramount in the designs. The oven doors are made from triple thickness glass so the surface and handle do not heat up, and a turbo fan inside the oven distributes the heat evenly.

Another Fujihome appliance, the induction hob, has an overtime detector as its primary safety feature. If a pan is left on an element for more than 30 minutes without being stirred, or once a pan has been removed from the top for 60 seconds, the cooker will automatically shut off.

Fujihome's latest upright freezer has an aluminium finish that doesn't show fingerprints or smudge marks. It also includes a self-defrost system.
