Electrolux, Europe's No.1 professional and domestic cooking producer, is proud to have been working with Tetsuya for over three years, sharing with him his passion for cooking and creativity in the kitchen.
Not only will you find products designed and created by Electrolux in the commercial kitchens of Tetsuya’s award-winning restaurant, but he also chooses the company’s domestic appliances for his home.
Electrolux and Tetsuya work closely together, drawing upon the heritage and expertise of Electrolux in appliances, while tapping into the chef’s unrivalled hands-on experience in the kitchen.
Ongoing, Tetsuya regularly liaises with the Sydney-based Electrolux Regional Design Director, Lars Erikson, continually giving feedback on his usage of the appliances and discussing his thoughts and ideas on design. This relationship helps Electrolux continually evolve and advance each new generation of its appliance. Key to Electrolux’s offering is to ensure that the domestic and commercial chef is always at the forefront of every appliance design.
In 2005, Tetsuya visited the Electrolux Professional cooking appliances plant in Porcia, Italy, where he spent a day with the company’s design team analysing new innovations and trends in the cooking field, looking at how it can continually advance its products to meet new customer needs.
Tetsuya also runs a series of exclusive Masterclasses at the restaurant’s Electrolux Gallery private kitchen and dining room, whereby a select few invited guests are treated by the maestro himself to a cooking class. During the occasion, Tetsuya always takes the time to demonstrate the wonders of Electrolux’s induction cooktops, a personal favourite of his.
“Electrolux products excel in leading commercial kitchens worldwide. What is unique about the company is that it continually uses the feedback and learnings from the use of its products in these extreme commercial set-ups to innovate and advance the domestic appliance market, with its products always offering thoughtful design, premium quality and complete reliability. At work and home, I always choose products manufactured by Electrolux,” said Wakuda.
