Aussie families and BBQ lovers across the nation can now enjoy smoke and noise free alfresco dining with family and friends this summer thanks to Schweigen, pioneers in silent rangehoods and one of Australia’s leading kitchen appliance brands.

Whether you’re hosting a BBQ or cooking and entertaining guests in your outdoor kitchen area, Schweigen’s outdoor silent rangehoods let you experience smoke-free, odour-free and noise-free conversations around the barbie.

Schweigen’s signature silent rangehoods will impress guests as the unit’s German-made IsoDrive motor system is externally mounted on the roof and not in the canopy. Schweigen silent rangehoods allow the homeowner to enjoy entertaining guests without having to sacrifice peace and quiet.

Schweigen Managing Director, Anthony Fletcher, said the key to the ultimate outdoor kitchen experience and summer entertaining requires attention to detail not only with food, drinks and music, but also with the environment you’re entertaining your guests in.

“We all know that the key issue with rangehoods is the excessive noise they produce during operation. With current trends seeing the rangehood as a centrepiece in its own right in and outside of modern homes, it is more critical than ever to tackle this problem,” he said

Mr Fletcher said more and more Australians are discovering that their outdoor kitchens are fast becoming the most commonly used room in their house, particularly during summer time.

“When you’re indoors, you have a rangehood to extract smoke, odour and grease. It’s just as important to have a rangehood in your BBQ or outdoor kitchen area. When you cook outdoors the smoke and odour are not difused quicker or more effectively. Rather it lingers and penetrates clothing, hair and skin leaving your guests smelling like BBQ,” he said.

Schweigen Brand Ambassador and Award-winning kitchen designer, Mal Corboy said it’s only natural that outdoor kitchens are becoming more designed focus.

“Consumers are wanting outdoor appliances that perform just as well as they do in their indoor kitchens and the Schweigen Alfresco Rangehood range fits the bill perfectly! Schweigen’s rangehoods are not only silent and powerful, but also innovative and stylish – perfect for conversations around the barbecue,” he said.
