Attention to Detail Encapsulates the ASKO Experience

Scandinavian design, responsibly-sourced sustainable materials, high-quality craftsmanship, and user-driven innovations are all integral components of what goes into making ASKO’s minimalist appliances a great choice for any kitchen. Made with a better future in mind, every detail – be it design, user experience, or culinary expertise – is carefully considered to elevate the final result and add to the appliances’ lengthy lifespans. This level of attention to detail ensures that you’ll have years of carefree ownership and an unlimited amount of delicious memories made possible through ASKO’s functionality, timeless clean lines, and concern for the environment.

ASKO is currently the market-leading Scandinavian brand of premium kitchen, laundry, and professional appliances. The design and production facets focus on saving energy, reducing emissions, and increasing recycling and reuse. Lifespan is a leading factor in turning this approach into a realistic part of ASKO’s sustainable strategy, and only one reason why attention to detail is deemed so important. Products undergo rigorous testing and follow strict quality, design, and environmental guidelines, reflecting the brand’s mission in every kitchen and laundry appliance that goes out the door. Proof in point: all ASKO washing machines, tumble dryers, and dishwashers are tested for a 20-year lifecycle. The long lifespans of these machines are only improved by their timeless aesthetic appeal.

Offering an innovative way of cooking through the use of precise temperature control, the Celsius°Cooking™ system helps to avoid under- or overcooking, as well as not creating more food waste.

The ASKO Elevate Hood-in-Hob uses a downdraft vent to get rid of cooking fumes with a unique tower that brings the vent closer to the pans for more efficient, quieter use. When not in use, the tower retracts back into the cooktop as if it were never there.
