Be inspired by Designer kitchens

Every year, the Jones Family Business (Applico – Stand 460 in Hall 4) work with the New Zealand design community to develop the latest in kitchen chic. This year, they are featuring five distinct kitchens to provide inspiration to their customers, including three designed by top New Zealand kitchen designers: Rebecca Banks of Inside Vision, John van Doormaal of Innovative Kitchens and Sarah Burrows of Sarah Burrows Design.


Sarah Burrows brings a taste of the orient to a new kitchen, designed to bring to life ASKO’s new Volcano Wok – a solid brass piece creating the same authenticity as a Chinese restaurant. Featuring black and metallic tones, Sarah’s kitchen is designed as a demo kitchen to showcase the new appliances from ASKO, and you can see regular demonstrations of authentic Asian Fusion cooking throughout each day from Vanessa Baxter and other prominent chefs.
