Here at Home Beautiful, spoiling friends and family with delicious meals is one of our most favourite things to do. But even the most seasoned entertainer can appreciate a little help in the cooking and cleaning department. We have put together our top three courses with a few tips in the tech department for you to try at your next soiree.

If these recipes sound like a bit of a challenge, let us introduce you to your own personal sous-chef: the Schweigen IN. Multi-function Oven. The stunning model from Schweigen’s latest range features a touch sensitive display as well as traditional dials. Its 10 heating functions mean your roasts, pastries and cakes are cooked to perfection every time and the rapid preheating function will achieve the desired temperature in a very short time. The temp probe measures precise internal temperature of food and will automatically switch off when it is reached so food won’t overcook. We love when a single appliance can meet all our different needs.


Another product we love is the Glass Undermount Rangehood by Schweigen IN. The sleek opaque black or white glass finish will integrate seamlessly with your kitchen and offers an easy to clean surface with the power of Perimeter Aspiration. Plus it features their latest silent motor system so even when you’re cooking, you can hear your guests.
