Consider the hours of work put into the home over Ramadan. Breaking the fast with family and friends isn’t as effortless as the finest hosts make it seem. While we all may enjoy the fruits (and dinner, and dessert) of the labour that is so lovingly put into preparing meals and the home over this time, let us consider what this represents.
Hours of chopping, slicing and whipping that goes into each and every dish which is then baked, grilled or fried for our delight and delectation. And the person who cooks should not clear up after as well, so what happens with the mess and the huge pile of dishes left over? All the table linens that need to be washed and dried ready for the next day? Bosch to the rescue and with plenty of discounts too!
Bosch has been finding solutions to make your life easier for over 130 years. In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” located in Stuttgart, but you don’t have to travel that far to see for yourself exactly how this expertise is evident today.
Exclusively distributed by Ali Abdulwahab Al Mutawa (AAW) the expansive Bosch Kuwait showroom can be found in Al Dajeej. It is as immaculately fitted as any well-designed living space, with dedicated sections colorfully accessorized so you can perfectly imagine fitting out your home with Bosch, the winner of numerous Industrie Forum or iF Design Awards over the decades.
As you enter the pristine showroom you are immediately presented with four rows of counter tops, each one laden with appliances ranging from food preparation and beverages and breakfast to floor care. There’s a quote on the wall about Bosch vacuum cleaners which reads, “Power you can see, not hear” which for those many of you residing in apartment buildings is a useful thing to learn. Silence is golden but sometimes you just have to get rid of those dust-bunnies before you leave for work, forget that not everyone living in the building around you gets up at the crack of dawn!
Good to know that Bosch prides itself on thinking of ancillary solutions too; quieter vacuum cleaners, energy saving washing machines, and refrigerators with smoothly opening doors. There is a Bosch After Sales and Service center located Shuwaikh Industrial Area too, so you can maintain your Bosch products in tip top condition at all times, ensuring the promised reliability continues beyond the typical warrantee.
Bosch says, “Our products and services are designed to spark enthusiasm, improve quality of life, and help conserve natural resources. We want to deliver top quality and reliability. In short: we want to create technology that is ‘Invented for Life’.” One of the best ways to witness this is to see the products in action, and a visit to the showroom allows you to experience this yourself. There is a live kitchen demonstration area in the “Cooking & Baking” section, with a back wall of ovens that has to be seen to be believed.
Opening the door of one behemoth of a built-in oven, it is the seamless way it opens that brings a smile to your face. Reach in and pull out a baking tray and it’s reminiscent of the smoothest of gear changes in a manual sports car; you can feel the precision mechanics behind the experience.
It’s not just this attention to detail that makes Bosch appliances easy to use, but safer too in a busy home. Bosch puts its products through hundreds of thousands of stress tests, so you can be sure that they will survive life every day in your home. Because we don’t all live in huge homes with massive kitchens, you must take a look at the wonderfully compact oven in the featured display wall immediately on your left as you enter the store.
You may even decide that this is the size you want to go for, if only so that you can fit other built-in appliances too! The built-in coffee maker is clean, quick, instant and consistent, ideal for giving your family and guests exactly the kind of coffee they require at the end of an appreciated iftar gathering, all at the touch of a button.
Exploring the showroom further, there is a fitted section which displays how compactly the essentials of the home fit together. Side by side there is a refrigerator, dish washer, washing machine and dryer. Plus, the section has been accessorized so you can imagine a complete utility room perfect to do the ironing in using your choice of Bosch steam irons.
There are also shelves dressed with small kitchen appliances so you can see how easy it is to store and put away these products when not in use. You may want to keep your appliances on display however, as they are as beautifully designed aesthetically as they are mechanically.
This Ramadan, Bosch makes it simple and easy to survive the stresses of the season giving you solutions to food storage, cooking and cleaning. This leaves you more time to enjoy and appreciate your friends and family, or sit back and relax watching those wonderful Ramadramas! Let the experienced staff at Bosch demonstrate for you exactly how Bosch appliances can fit into your busy life. Plus, they can give you more details on the amazing deals to be found this Ramadan on all the products at the Bosch Kuwait showroom. See you there!
