LED+Clear view in blue, red, and green
Plus for total control of dishwasher operation! Special LED lamp installed on the lower part of the dishwasher door constantly indicates the current stage of the dishwashing program. Blue light stands for the beginning of the program and informs the user that it is still possible to add dishes to the machine without compromising on the final effects. Red light goes on when the detergent has been released. In this stage, adding items or otherwise interrupting the washing program is no longer desired. When the green light appears, the washing cycle is over. Completion of the program is also signalled by a short beep, while the green light remains lit for two hours. LED lamps are extremely power efficient and have a long useful life.
Gorenje is launching a new exclusive collection of the Gorenje Pininfarina series, the Gorenje Pininfarina Steel which represents a perfect symbiosis of technological perfection and inspired design. With everything superfluous taken away, what is left is sublime elegance, without buttons or handles. Genuine materials buttress the character of the collection that succeeds three top-selling superiorly designed and technologically advanced collections resulting from Gorenje's cooperation with the renowned Pininfarina design studio. Gorenje Pininfarina Steel Collection was unveiled at the 2010 IFA fair in Berlin; this time, it is showcased for the visitors of the LivingKitchen fair in Cologne. The collection will be available in most markets as of this spring.
A collection with a timeless air of perfectionDesign that lasts. The alluring, refined and clean cut design makes the Gorenje Pininfarina Steel Collection an unquestionable design icon.
Gorenje Pininfarina Steel Collection materializes the urban trends of interweaving materials and colours; metal and glass. A surprising combination of textures is enchanting and alluring, and the straightforward use is convincing and exciting. No exceptions, no compromises. The collection comprises an elegant fridge freezer with an innovative window allowing immediate view of the interior; a built-in oven; SliderTouch glass ceramic hobs and induction hobs with unique MultiSlider electronic touch control developed at Gorenje; innovative gas hob with a glass ceramic plate and advanced electronic touch control; s cooker hood; and decorative panels for the dishwasher and the microwave oven.
High tech harboured behind the reflections of genuine metalGorenje Pininfarina Steel Collection features several innovative technological solutions. HomeMADE oven excels with user-friendly DirecTouch control and the innovative arched interior that yields, in combination with the patented PerfectGrill two-level heater placement, excellent results as it mimics the traditional wood-fired ovens. Perhaps the most striking novelty among hobs is the gas hob on glass ceramic plate with specially designed cast iron support grid and advanced electronic TouchControl feature. An upgrade to the TouchControl feature on gas hobs is the automatic timer - an original novelty in gas hob control - which allows accurate setting of cooking time independently for each burner. If the flame goes out, electronic regulation will take care of automatic restart while clearly laid out control modules will allow monitoring the status of each burner.
In addition, the slide control function for induction hobs was upgraded as a result of Gorenje's in-house R&D. MultiSlider innovative slider control technology allows perfect control of power, cooking time, and other functions for each cooking zone separately as every field features a dedicated program timer and a slide control module.Prestige and timeless elegance
The bold lines of the new collection, following the idea of outstanding design, will blend seamlessly with the ambiance and complement it in a perfectly organic manner, elevating its true value.

The new collection is a symbol of comfortable life sought and cherished by modern consumers that will only settle for the best as their lifestyles set new trends.
The collection was designed by Paolo Pininfarina, a globally renowned figure in the world of design, the icon of the Pininfarina Extra Company and – since 2008 – the president of the entire Pininfarina Group. His vast portfolio includes the legendary Ferrari, while his most resounding project that carved out his name in the history of design, was the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics torch. www.pininfarina.com
Following the cooperation with the famous Italian design studio Pininfarina and the keen French designer Ora-Ïto, Gorenje is now betting on the talent and boldness of prolific designer and undisputed king of colour, the man who made pink masculine: New York-based designer star Karim Rashid, creating a brand new collection Gorenje designed by Karim Rashid.
The touch of lightTeaming up with Gorenje was a perfect opportunity to pursue a desire Karim has had for ages: to introduce design into simple, everyday objects such as household appliances, to marry his imagination to advanced technology, and to create a top-class collection of appliances that will provide a memorable experience for all senses. “I have wanted to design appliances for ages. It was a great exercise in rethinking the banal. Too often we are relegated to tired archetypes. Design is about shaping contemporaneity. Design is critical to our environments, to our daily experiences, our products, our everything.” comments Karim Rashid and adds: “Everything needs to be designed, from our airplane interiors to our shampoo bottles to our money. We need to beautify this planet in every aspect, in every corner of the earth.”
He has designed products ranging from vacuum cleaners to furniture, children’s toys to luggage, television sets to perfume bottles and lighting fixtures. As an interior decorator, he has also designed several famous hotels and clubs; and now on Gorenje household appliances which, incidentally, he is using himself: “Over the past years Gorenje has proven to be a company that has a strong interest in contemporary design. I have been following and appreciating their successful collections. When they contacted me to design the new Gorenje collection it took very little discussion to get the project started. I knew the company also because I do a lot of work in Eastern Europe and have an apartment in Belgrade with Gorenje appliances.”
Gorenje is equally thrilled about the collaboration with Karim. They are impressed by his charisma and the daring colours featured in his designs. To evoke the appearance of colourful elegance, they decided to employ LED technology, regarded as an innovative lighting solution of the future. “Hence, Gorenje is the first home appliance manufacturer to offer a solution that allows the users to change the colour of their appliances, using the innovative MoodLite technology developed by Gorenje. The vertical LED light stripe allows several colour versions, providing the option to adjust the appearance of the appliance to one’s current mood, or indeed one’s lifestyle", commented Mr. Aleksander Uranc, Gorenje marketing director.
MoodLite Technology. A touch of light and colour. Day in, day out, yet differently each day. It allows a play of colour, and affords endless freedom to the inspiration and emotions of each moment.

White is the colour for people with a colourful imagination; it is a platform that offers endless possibilities of play, advancement, and development. It is the colour that never fails to make the fashion trends; in interior design, its unquestionable convenience, adaptability to any style and the capacity to disperse and reflect the light make it simply eternal. White has been, is, and will remain the colour of kitchen equipment as its chic is timeless. White is also the favourite colour of the French designer Ora-Ïto who, following his successful collaboration with Gorenje two years ago when he designed the Gorenje Ora-Ïto Collection of black kitchen appliances, painted the kitchen white this fall. Meet the Gorenje Ora-Ïto White Collection.
A reflection of light in your kitchenJust as minimalist, elegant, and refined as its black predecessor, Gorenje Ora-Ïto White Collection combines the technology and quality with the design talent of the globally renowned French designer of the young generation, Ora-Ïto. Minimalist elegance and the bold distinctive design are forged into a world of coexisting complexity and simplicity – "simplexity" – as Ora-Ïto dubbed his style. Overwhelmed with creative inspiration, Ora-Ïto revealed that to him, white is a magical and timeless colour that gives objects a dimension of modernity. "In my eyes, white is much more than just a colour. It is the symbol of my vision of the future which is my main source of inspiration... White is the colour that best represents the light. White actually has the magical capacity to become light by reflection. It has the power to transfer light by reflection, creating a sense of brightness that optically enlarges the space... Hence, white is much more than a colour or a hue: it is becoming matter, owing to the light it radiates, inviting us to taste today the days that are yet to come ..."
The Gorenje Ora-Ïto White Collection includes a freestanding fridge freezer, a multi-function built-in oven with electronic controls, a glass-ceramic induction hob, a cooking hob with gas burners on glass surface, an elegant chimney hood, and decorative panels for the dishwasher and microwave oven that round up the harmonious design of the entire collection. The appliances of the Ora-Ïto White Collection rank in the highest "A" energy classes and feature all modern user functions. They are distinctive for the harmonious appearance of their front panels which are covered completely in white glass, and handles made of brushed aluminium in stainless steel colour.
The Gorenje Ora-Ïto White Collection is refreshingly fashionable and amazingly eternal. It is like a well-tailored white shirt made of high-quality cotton, which never disappoints. It is eternity caught in simple lines, high-quality materials, and superior technology. Such a combination is always in fashion.
Gorenje is introducing a new line of household appliances for kitchen and bathroom. In addition to the technological perfection, these appliances also deliver simple and logical operation using a single control dial. Appliances of the Gorenje SIMPLICITY Line offer an array of carefully and deliberately selected preset programs that the European users, in years of experience, have found the most convenient.
The line is intended for both the beginners and the advanced users who know exactly which functions and features of each appliance they truly need and actually employ. Hence, users of these appliances – all of which are rated in the highest energy classes A, A+, and A++ - will only pay for what they truly use.
The Gorenje Simplicity Line is tailored to the modern user who feels that making repeated decisions between a plethora of programs and functions is simply superfluous and wishes instead for a simply way of controlling the home appliances. A single twist of the dial is enough to select the preset program, indicated with the corresponding symbol, and the intelligent UseLogic© technology takes care of everything else.
Hence, these appliances actually make life easier, save time, and relieve the users of tiresome browsing through the instruction manual every time they want to select a program on their oven or washing machine. Simple and logical, without redundant additional choices that end up confusing the users and impose additional burden both on them and on their budgets.
The combination of glass and metal materials appears pure and simple, yet elegant and sophisticated. The ergonomically designed dial, a hallmark of the collection, and a polished aluminium handle endow the entire collection with a sense of unity. The appliances are available in two colours, white and black. Light and Night.
Efficient, economical, and simple operation of Gorenje's appliances of the Simplicity Line will simplify your lives and leave you with more leisure time for fun and pleasure.
Living a simpler life has become a trend, a motto pursued by many across the globe. Although it may be difficult to sail against the wind, it can still be perceived that money and social status have conceded position on the top of our priority lists to values such as health, happiness, social accountability, and living a fulfilling life. In the words of one of the pioneers of a different lifestyle, the author of the book "Voluntary Simplicity & The Living Universe", and numerous articles and lectures, Duane Elgin, "... living a life that is outwardly simple yet inwardly rich."
The efficiency and simple operation of the Gorenje Simplicity line make our lives easier, offering us more leisure time, more pleasure, and more joy.
Gorenje Simplicity ovens
Using a Gorenje Simplicity oven will be a breeze even for the perfect beginner. A single turn of the ergonomically designed dial is enough to select the preset program while the UseLogic© technology takes care of the rest – without tiresome studies of the instruction manuals and countless choices and decisions. Trust the technology to set the temperature and cooking mode, and use your time for something more pleasant! Pizza delivery? No problem: at your home, with a single twist of a dial.
Gorenje Simplicity multifunctional ovens have an operating capacity of 60 L and enable cooking at three levels at a time.

Excellent door insulation, paired with special reflective films on the glass improves oven performance while reducing power consumption. In addition, the glass door enables excellent insight into the oven interior while the ergonomically designed handle made of polished aluminium offers a safe and firm grip.
Gorenje Simplicity cookers
Gorenje Simplicity cooking hobs are available with induction and hi-light technology as well as with gas burners. The key advantage of the Simplicity cookers is the simple touch control. The control area with large and intelligible symbols is positioned centrally, thus being equally friendly to both left- and right-handed people; above all the optimum choices are always right in front of the user's eyes. The brushed edges of the glass ceramic cookers enhance the appearance of the appliance and allow simple cleaning, while the durable cast iron grid on the gas cookers give the impression of a professional kitchen.
On today's cooking hobs, cooking is a matter of a gentle touch, inspiration, aesthetics, and innovative ideas. Technological perfection of Gorenje cookers adds its own distinctive touch to this trend: through plain and simple operation, it turns even the most challenging culinary endeavour into an act of effortless and playful creativity.
Casting the spotlight on the induction hobs, these are among the most power efficient, modern, and safe cooking appliances in the market. Up to 30 percent faster heating and up to 40 percent lesser power consumption are only the two perhaps most convincing arguments supporting the decision to opt for an induction hob. Adding to this the simple cleaning using nothing but a wet cloth – even during cooking, as the hob surface remains cool – there should hardly be another reason to hesitate. As the cooking hob will both heat up and cool down rapidly, you will not only save power but also your time as your food will be ready sooner.
The prompt response to any change in the temperature settings will please the seasoned chefs as it allows perfect control required in some more tricky procedures such as melting chocolate for delicious frostings, and other sensitive culinary adventures.
Gorenje Simplicity washing machine
The pure and simple operating principle employed in Simplicity appliances is based on years of experience of the European users. The logical dial includes several icons representing the most commonly used preset programs: Cotton 60°C, Mix 40°C, and Delicate 30°C.
These are the most often used programs in European households, representing as much as 80 percent of all washing requirements. The innovative and intelligible logical program layout on the large centrally positioned dial further facilitates the choice of the most suitable washing program. Leave the washing to a true expert.
The Gorenje Simplicity washing machine boasts the AAA rating that witnesses the optimum power efficiency, washing, and spinning effect delivered by the advanced and steadfastly reliable UseLogic© technology. Power consumption is 10% lower relative to the standard of the A class indicated on the energy label, while washing and speeding effects meet the criteria of the A class.
This, however, is only the beginning: the same technology also allows simple and straightforward operation where the desired washing program is activated by a single twist of the logical dial, without superfluous selections and choices between temperatures, quantity of water, and spinning intensity. The washing machine will do that for you! If, however, you prefer to take control of the washing procedure, you can do so via a sleek LED display that indicates spinning rpms for the selected program, duration of the program, and the time remaining until the program completion.
Washing machines of the Gorenje Simplicity Line enable several other ways to save time and energy: for example, the machine can be loaded whenever you see fit, but the start of the washing can be delayed by up to 42 hours, allowing you to wash during the lower power rate periods.If you wish to devise your own programs, the three function keys will allow you to reduce the spinning speed for easier ironing (the EasyIron feature), include additional rinsing e.g. for children's clothes (AntiAllergy), or shorten the duration of the washing cycle by selecting the EcoCare feature. Less spinning will allow easier ironing, additional rinsing will be a welcome option for the allergy-affected, and shorter cycles will suffice for less soiled laundry.
And the large items? The 33-cm opening and the door that opens to an angle of 183 degrees will allow you to effortlessly load and empty the drum. Hence, loading large items such as blankets, pillows, and other bedclothes will no longer be a complicated endeavour.
Gorenje Simplicity combined fridge freezer
The key assets of Simplicity refrigerators are the caring selection of materials and elegant design. They share the distinctive appearance of the other appliances in the collection, featuring the ergonomically designed control dial and the convenient vertical handle made of polished aluminium, offering comfortable opening.
Gorenje Simplicity Line offers two combined fridge freezer models in black or white. The combined appliance with a net volume of 312 litres only consumes 209 kWh of power per year, thus reaching the top A++ energy class. The combined fridge freezer with a volume of 305 litres and NoFrost Absolute technology is ranked in the A+ class. Both models feature superior thermal insulation, improved door sealing, and state-of-the-art refrigeration system components that reduce power consumption to a minimum.
The cutting edge No Frost Absolute technology prevents accumulation of frost on the food and interior walls. Thus, it will save you from the tedious waste of time, which is cleaning and defrosting the fridge. In addition, it allows optimum operation and space usage in the freezer compartment. Another notable feature is the Cool'n'Fresh drawer. A fan directs the cool air directly into this vegetable crisper and fruit or meat bin, prolonging the freshness of your food and helping it retain the natural aroma. Now, you will have more time to use it all and throw nothing away.
Owing to the luxury of space in the deep shelf of the refrigerator door, the dilemma of how to store the large, up to 2.5-litre bottles, is a relic of the past; the refrigerator can accommodate everything. In addition, the anti-bacterial treatment of interior fittings and accessories, and appealing halogen lighting are two further convincing points.
Hence, the spacious refrigerators of the Gorenje Simplicity line, with optimum shelf and drawer layout and the efficiency of the highest energy classes A+ and A++ will surely meet any standard and requirement of modern consumers.
Gorenje simplicity dishwasher with decorative panel
The offer of Gorenje Simplicity appliances also includes the fully integrated dishwasher with AAA washing, drying, and power efficiency rating, total AquaStop protection and a clever selection of the most commonly used presets. Hence, five programs are available for washing up to 12 settings at a time. The programs are adjusted to various types of dishes and the level of soiling. Top three programs by popularity include the Sensitive program for delicate dishes, Super programs when heavy duty treatment is required, and the Normal program for moderately soiled dishes.
The AAA rating is a result of the dishwasher's optimum energy efficiency, efficient water management resulting in a minimum water consumption of 12 litres, and excellent drying process that is also A-rated in terms of energy class.
Dishwasher interior is made of stainless steel, which makes cleaning simple and the appliance useful life longer. The heater is concealed in the appliance bottom. This leads to optimum usage of space which is further enhanced by the adjustable upper basket. Setting it to a higher position, it will allow washing oversized plates and tall stemware. Very simple and very efficient!
Ergonomically designed handle made of polished aluminium complements the minimalist glass façade which merely hints at the complex technology installed behind it. The trendily designed decorative panel of the Gorenje Simplicity Line, with the appealing centrally positioned control dial – the hallmark of the entire collection, can adorn any existing fully integrated dishwasher of any 60 cm model, thus endowing the appearance of the entire line of kitchen appliances with a sense of coherence.
Gorenje Simplicity extraction hoods
When shopping for an extractor hood, contemporary consumers no longer pay attention solely to the technical characteristics and performance indicators; they have come to appreciate the additional functionality and appearance. The cooker hood of the Gorenje Simplicity line features a splendid combination of glass and metal. Furthermore, like other appliances of the Simplicity line, it is distinctive for its centrally positioned ergonomically designed control dial.
This dial allows simple settings of the intensity of ventilation and lighting. Turning the dial to the left will activate the ventilation and the lamp; turned to the right, the dial will only engage the ventilation, without the lighting. The hood is also easy to maintain as its detachable metal grease filter are dishwasher safe. Quick and simple.

Operating 24/7, 365 days a year, refrigerators and freezers consume the most power of any appliance in the average household. Choosing an A+, A++, or A+++ energy class appliance will considerably reduce both power consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
The latest freestanding and built-in refrigerators and freezers of the A+++ energy class, presented by Gorenje, owe their efficiency to some remarkable technological improvements: improved insulation systems, innovative solutions in system components, and highly-efficient compressors combine to reduce power consumption to a minimum.
The majority of refrigerators and freezers currently rank in the A+ and A++ energy class. Appliances of the most efficient, A+++ energy class, which offer users power savings of up to 60 percent over the A energy class, are scheduled for this year.
New over oldThe most wasteful appliances today are those manufactured ten years ago and earlier. These can consume up to 65 percent more power than new models. Gorenje's study of annual power consumption has shown that an average Gorenje appliance from 1995 consumes about 400 kWh per year; appliances from 2000 consume 320 kWh; from 2005 about 240 kWh; and appliances currently produced only consume 170 kWh per year. Given the fact that 40 percent of power consumed in households is used by home appliances, it’s very important to use those that are energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Moreover, the fact that power rates are almost constantly on the rise is another reason to consider organising our households in a manner that is economical and responsible to the environment in which we live.
Smart features, smart behaviour
Additional savings are made possible by numerous functions like the economy program, holiday program, and the rapid cooling program recommended after major shopping trips. Today’s contemporary consumer living the fast life will also appreciate the simplicity of use and the functional design that provides high-quality food storage and saves some time. One such function is undoubtedly the NO FROST system, which prevents accumulation of frost and ice in the freezer, allowing for optimal use of space and thus saving power.
Furthermore, there’s a lot we can do ourselves. For example, we can make sure the temperature in the refrigerator is at an optimum of about 4 °C, and avoid opening the refrigerator door too often in order to reduce escape of cool air. We should also make sure that only dried and cooled food is stored in the refrigerator and the freezer, in order to prevent the formation of ice which increases power consumption.
One thing to note when choosing a new refrigerator or freezer is the energy efficiency which is indicated by the manufacturers using designated energy classes. Power-efficient Gorenje appliances are additionally labelled with the green Gorenje ECO CARE label.
Hence, offering technologically advanced and environmentally friendly products is one way in which manufacturers team up with customers to preserve the environment for generations to come.
In the past decade, technological development of home appliances saw remarkably fast progress, bringing numerous innovations including some that lead to substantial energy savings. Power consumption was thus more than halved which has contributed to lower carbon dioxide emissions and lower costs. Parallel to the rapid technological development, user conduct and needs are also increasingly changing as consumers act more responsibly with respect to the environment and look for environmentally friendly products.
Ecology is among Gorenje Group's key strategic activities. Consistently with the principles of sustainable development, environment protection is integrated in all corporate processes and decisions. New products are planned consistently with the requirements of environmental design which comprises the entire life cycle of a product, ranging from development, through manufacturing and use, to waste handling following the expiry of the product's useful life. In the development stage, up to 80 percent of the product's effects on the environment during its life cycle are determined. Any negative environmental effects are mitigated by the choice of materials and components to meet the most stringent environmental standards, by environmentally friendly manufacturing, by designing environmentally friendly products, and by responsible waste management. Choice of materials includes the use of ecologically soundest materials that allow simple disassembly and recycling after the end of the appliance's useful life. This involves using as few different types of plastics as possible, and as many standard elements as possible. Environmental effect also depends on the manner and frequency of use of the product. Activating special appliance functions can lead to additional power savings. Gorenje home appliances are built in a manner that allows fast and simple disassembly and they are made of at least 90 percent recyclable materials and components which can be reused in various subsequent production processes.
Aware of the fact that 40 percent of electricity consumed by households is used to power home appliances, Gorenje has been focused on development of energy efficient and economical equipment. The most recent washing machine models used 17 percent less power and 13 percent less water per washing cycle compared to the appliances manufactured ten years ago; power consumption is up to 60 percent lower than ten years ago in refrigerators and freezers, and up to 25 percent lower in ovens.
Constant improvements in power consumption of major appliances resulted in the last five years in the need for a revised standardization of appliance energy efficiency since the A energy class has become too low for the newly attained efficiency ratings. Inadequacy of the existing standards was resolved by adding extra signs to the A class, leading to A+, ++, or even +++ classes. On December 20th 2010, the new official European energy label was adopted which introduces universal communication through pictograms. The labels are effective for refrigeration appliances, washing machines, dishwashers, and TV sets, while other home appliances will follow soon. Gorenje's extra power efficient home appliances are additionally labelled in the stores with the green Gorenje ECO CARE label.
Today, induction is considered the cutting-edge cooking technology with considerable advantages over other technological solutions: speed of operation, energy efficiency, and simple maintenance. Due to these properties, it is also increasingly popular with the consumers.
People are becoming increasingly dependant on technology to make tasks more convenient. Induction hobs can do just that, especially as they are almost twice as fast as gas equivalents when it comes to cooking. Speed has been king for a long time, in many different aspects of everyday life, and now there's an improved method to allow for quicker cooking, saving more time in general life. Induction hobs are also said to be considerably more energy efficient than gas hobs, using up to 90 percent of the energy produced in comparison to 55 percent, making them more economical.
Meet XtremePower Induction
However, induction has found room for improvement. With several innovative development solutions, Gorenje further upgraded the functionality of their hobs to place them at the pinnacle of induction technology. Their development experts paid the most attention to issues of cutting the time required to heat liquid to boiling point by supplying more power, how to make control even simpler and operation even quieter, while optimizing the usage of the cooktop surface. With even greater heating power and numerous innovative functions that make cooking simpler, the new induction is even more convincing.
Ultimate Cooking Comfort
The XtremePower induction hobs offer incredible power! When the PowerBoost function is activated, high-performance induction coils made of state-of-the-art materials, and two cooling fans with double operating power will kick in to supply extra power to the hob. Thoughtfully devised electronic switching between cooking zones distributes the power between built-in inductor coils to enable cooking with the highest power setting on all cooking zones simultaneously.
XtremePower induction hobs also offer more space, simpler cookware handling, and better control of the cooking process. The new hobs are available in widths 60, 77, 90, and 110 cm.
Numerous convenient featuresBoilControl system can be activated or deactivated at any time to automatically keep the cooking zone at desired temperature and prevent the food from boiling for too long, or even boiling over.
If, however, the food does boil over, the StopGo function will take control of the situation even when, for any reason, the cooking process is interrupted. This function instantaneously turns off all cooking zones while saving all current settings; a simple touch will restore the cooking process. Hence, if the food boils over, the StopGo function can be used to let you clean up and simply continue as soon as you are done.
One remarkable advantage of XtremePower induction cookers is accurate and convenient control of the cooking zones. Each cooking zone has its own module and a touch-controlled program timer, while modern easy-to-understand symbols enhance the clarity of controls. Some models of XtremePower induction offer a unique advanced Sliding touch control – a feature developed in Gorenje. Temperature is set and controlled simply by sliding a finger across the control slider surface which is discreetly integrated into the black background.
SuperSilent and extremely fast operation
Gorenje XtremePower induction hobs operate very quietly, even when all four cooking zones are engaged simultaneously at full power! Intelligent switching between induction coils and use of state-of-the-art components decrease the buzz characteristic of induction hobs.
XtremePower induction is also extremely fast. The Powerboost feature further enhances the performance of the induction hob. So the power of heaters with the new generation induction cookers is boosted by up to 20 percent comparing to its predeccesors and over 50 percent faster than are traditional gas hobs or you coffee will be ready twice as fast.
FishZone Oval HeaterXtremePower induction hobs are fitted with a cookware sensor to deliver optimum cooking zone usage. Ample offer of induction hobs also includes a model with a special oval heater, particularly handy for cooking or frying fish or large chunks of meat.
SoftMelt and StayWarm functionsWith the SoftMelt function, the cooking zone maintains a constant temperature of 42 °C, allowing you to melt honey, butter, and chocolate without any additional hassle. The Staywarm function will keep your cooked food warm at the optimum temperature of 70 °C. Food retains its flavour and stays warm to be served later. An excellent addition to your cooking options!
What is the purpose of a table? Gorenje is changing the answers to the seemingly simple questions by approaching them in an innovative fashion. Particularly notable among the solutions resulting from such an approach is the SmarTable, an innovation on a global scale, which introduces new dimensions of versatility. SmarTable is a unique prestigious table with a remotely controlled refrigerator.
At first sight, it charms with superior select materials. The brilliance of the glass, massiveness of the stone, warmth of the finest wood. Inside, it keeps and cools exquisite champagne, wines and other drinks, delis, fruit, and cold hours d'oeuvres, which immediately bring a new side to your business and social meetings, as well as private moments of enjoyment. The SmarTable's fundamental value is in freeing the appliance from its direct environment of the kitchen, in the common sense of the word, and in paving the way for its placement into any room of choice. You decide where its value is materialized, and that is the true sense of prestige.
Its clear message of innovativeness and business excellence makes SmarTable highly appropriate for official venues and business premises, as it can transform the working environment into an opportunity for relaxation, snack, or a toast, in any moment. With the SmarTable, you can always be an excellent host who never fails to surprise the guests or business partners. The prestigious conference table can be converted into a cocktail table by a single touch of a remote control button, which will allow you to celebrate major business achievements in style.
SmarTable is unique, and stands out wherever it is displayed. The concept saw its debut in 2006 at the 100 % Design Fair in London. As observed by the Financial Times in its Superior Interiors supplement: "The only one of its kind in the world..." A year later, SmarTable impressed the audience and the expert community alike at the Foire de Paris where it was nominated for the Le Grand Prix de l'Innovation. This year, it won the audience award at the Observeur exhibition of the Cité des Sciences, Paris.

Enhanced and enriched interior design
Two meters tall black beauty with 26,000 crystals with improved interior design is a member of the Premium Touch family that boasts cutting-edge technology of touch screen control and the highest energy class, A+. The interior was conceived by Gorenje designers consistently with the guidelines that led the interior design of the Gorenje Pininfarina appliances. The refined stress is given by the introduction of fine materials, thus natural wood, aluminum, coloured tempered glass, and compact plastic materials are now employed in the appliance interior. Hence, the new series of refrigerators Gorenje Starry Night with 26.000 CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements offers the admirers of sparkling crystals yet another innovatively conceived, technologically advanced, and perfectly designed appliance.

Both drawers are a perfect fit and match for the convex door shelves. They are located at the bottom of the refrigerator unit in the so-called Zero'n'Fresh Zone, with temperature just above the freshness-retaining 0 °C, thus ensuring prolonged storage of vegetables, fruit, and meat. Another captivating feature is the convenient retractable In'n'Out shelf, made of dark natural wood, sturdy aluminum, and glass; it can be used as an elegant serving tray.
