Hughes Electrical invests £50,000 in demonstration kitchen
Hughes Electrical has invested over £50,000 to create demonstration kitchen at its store on Hall Road, Norwich.
It has taken three months to complete and now features over 100 items of equipment ranging from induction hobs and built-in microwaves to wine coolers, from top brands including Neff, Miele and Leibherr.
“This is a first for Hughes,” said regional manager Mark Ferdani. “The built-in market is growing rapidly, while the kitchen is becoming an increasingly important part of the modern home. However, we realised people really don’t know what their new appliances will actually be like until they have them installed.
“Therefore we took the decision to invest in the demonstration kitchen area so customers can come and see for themselves how appliances operate, before making a decision on what best suits their needs.
“We are also planning to bring in top local chefs to give a series of cooking demonstrations for our customers.”
The demonstration kitchen was initially put through its paces by Norfolk’s award-winning chef Andy Snowling, who cooked skate, steak and monkfish dishes.
“It’s a really lovely area with all the very latest appliances and gadgets, which is just what chefs and cooks of all abilities want,” said Snowling.
