Baking and cooking with the Hot Air Eco from Bosch: minimal energy consumption with the widest selection of models
Hot Air Eco: special temperature control minimizes energy waste
It's ideal for cooking on one level: for baked goods, casseroles or meat dishes
More than 30 appliances feature the Hot Air Eco technology and the "A-minus-30 percent" energy efficiency class – even the ones with pyrolysis
Munich – Baking and cooking with Bosch ovens and stoves is now even more efficient. Available in August, Bosch presents its latest heating feature, Hot Air Eco, a particularly economical hot air technology that will be available in increasing numbers of appliances, including those with pyrolysis. One year ago, Bosch introduced the first built-in ovens and stoves with the outstanding "A-minus-30 percent" energy efficiency class. This corresponds to electricity consumption that is 30 percent less than the maximum permitted value for energy efficiency class A. Now the company has expanded its selection of ovens and stoves to more than 30 models. This not only means environmental protection, but also automatic budget savings in more households.
The principle: constant temperature control
The idea behind the Hot Air Eco program was a response to consumer habits: According to a household test carried out by Bosch in 2009, hot air is the most common method for heating ovens. Furthermore, most consumers bake or cook on one level, even though it is possible to use multiple levels when cooking with hot air. Hot Air Eco is based on the simple concept that constant and precise temperature control is designed for cooking on one level. Using this technology, the cooking conditions in the oven not only remain constant, but no energy is wasted due to temperature fluctuations.
Consumers can now choose from a much wider variety of appliances featuring the best category in energy efficiency, "A-minus-30 percent". Hot Air Eco will be available as of August in numerous Bosch built-in ovens, and starting in autumn it will be available in premium freestanding appliances. To improve recognizability, dealers and customers can keep an eye out for the "GTi" label: The sticker (or Green Technology inside card) identifies new appliances with their savings potential.

Company founder Robert Bosch, who would have been 150 years old in 2011, was already committed to the guiding principle that still applies today, of producing "technology for life".
