Gorenje, the Slovenian manufacturer famed for its creative and technologically advanced appliances, has won three prestigious Plus X Awards for the iChef and RedSet washing machine, including Product of the Year.
The Plus X Award is the world’s largest contest for innovative technologies, sport and lifestyle products. Held in Germany, the awards are judged and presented by a jury of renowned industry and media representatives from across Europe. In order to win a Plus X award a product must be selected as the best in its group, in the European market, in at least one of the following categories: innovation, design, high quality, user-friendliness, environmental friendliness, functionality, and ergonomics.
Gorenje’s outstanding iChef oven with electronic control module was declared Product of the Year in the ovens category. It also received a second award for innovation, high quality, excellence of design and ease of use, thanks to the superior full-colour slide control which affords an advanced user experience similar to that offered by other modern consumer electronic products.
Gorenje’s RedSet washing machine won the third Plus X Award, for excellence of design, simplicity of use, and environmental friendliness. The awards jury was highly impressed by the product’s appealing appearance and environmentally friendly performance. The RedSet washing machine boasts an ‘A-10%AA’ rating for energy, washing and spinning, ranking the appliance among the most efficient current available in the market.
Ruth Ferguson, Gorenje’s Marketing Manager, says: “We feel very honoured to have received three such prestigious awards, which recognise our dedication to producing innovative appliances that continually push the boundaries of design and technology. The Gorenje iChef in particular has attracted considerable attention since its launch, and can truly be seen to represent the future of cooking.”
