Outline

Opposed from conventional microwave ovens which appear as a mechanical unfriendly box, BALMUDA The Range was designed under the concept “restaurant” as a suitable tool for a creative and enjoyable kitchen. The top light in the handle resembles the lights used in restaurants to warm the dishes before being served, an appropriate staging to present homemade dishes. Unfriendly beeping sounds are replaced by a humorous drum and guitar sound ending with the “ENJOY” text shown on display. Operation is easy with only 6 basic modes to choose from and can be operated by a simple switch and dial. (“Range” means microwave oven in Japanese).
