Spacious, innovative and stunning in appearance, Hotpoint Openspace is a worthy winner


The secret of the Hotpoint-Ariston Openspace oven lies in the choice of giving technological innovation an environmentally friendly value: excellent performance which guarantees a remarkable saving in resources. Openspace is part of Ecotech, a selection of the eco-sustainability “champions” of the historic brand. A selection where the excellent performance of a higher technology guarantees a remarkable resource saving. In fact, Openspace is the only 60 cm oven with a 70 litre capacity which allows 30% energy saving compared to a standard oven. Still retaining a 60 cm external oven dimension and the traditional built-in model, it provides consumers with many benefits: with 20% extra capacity, 70 litres of great versatility, Openspace is the biggest oven on the market within its category. Thanks to a special insulating divider the oven can be split into two independent ovens (20 and 48 litre capacity) allowing for the cooking of two different dishes at the same time and with no heat loss.
