Ovens and Microwaves - UK - November 2015

“Design of ovens and hobs is evolving rapidly with innovations that include sensor-controlled cooking, new functionality and easier cleaning. The cost of new technologies such as induction is falling, making this affordable to the mainstream and competing with gas for controllability and responsiveness. And Mintel is seeing style play a major role in segmenting the market as today’s consumers have more choices; built-in or stand-alone, a wider choice of sizes, and a bigger selection of colours and styling."

- Jane Westgarth, Senior Market Analyst
