New Alphason AV stands

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Alphason has been manufacturing for over 25 years, and as a result the company is now the UK’s leading manufacturer of TV Stands, AV Furniture, AV Brackets and AV Accessories.  Building on their successful AV ranges, Alphason have expanded into office furniture, and, most recently, into lighting.

Products are manufactured to the highest standards, using quality materials and the most up-to-date designs and technology. The idea behind Alphason products is that everything should function effectively, but also be pleasing on the eye. “Focusing on intelligent product design and development in line with TV panel innovation, we are constantly aware of new trends as they emerge. With an in-house design and development team, we are continuously designing and developing products to keep you ahead of the competition.” [Alphason Design website]

There are some new ranges that Alphason have recently launched, and we here at Go-Electrical are proud to say that we have them on our site ready for you to purchase. As always the prices are great, and with home delivery direct from Alphason on most items, your chosen piece could be with you within a matter of days.

Firstly, there is the new Arena series. The stand was designed with flat-screens in mind as it discreetly houses a 2.1 HD Sound upgrade, meaning better sound from your existing TV. The built-in speakers deliver brilliant sound quality and bass, but also do not look like speakers, which doesn’t spoil the overall appearance of the stand. The Arena stand is available in black or walnut and black, and is recommended for televisions up to 47” in size.

The Tensai series is another of the new additions. Available in three sizes the stands are suitable for televisions up to 40”, 46” and 55” in size, and feature brushed steel side panels, and stylish, highly reflective black glass floating shelves. A great focal point in any living room, the Tensai not only looks good but is very practical too.

Finally, there is the Yatai series. This ultra modern stand is all straight lines, and houses invisible push to open drawers, and aluminium DVD/game storage. The Yatai is available in two sizes, and comes in black or white, both of which have clear acrylic supports which add to the very contemporary look. Suitable for television screens up to 46” and 55”, the Yatai would be perfectly situated in a bachelor pad or a brilliantly stylish penthouse!

Keep your eyes peeled for further stands appearing on the Go-Electrical website. We already have information about several other new ranges that will be available shortly with names such as Gradino, Event and Contrast to name just a few.

Rangecookers from Rangemaster

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Rangemaster is another new addition to the Go-Electrical website. Part of the AGA Rangemaster group, Rangemaster is 180 years old and creates fabulous, top-end appliances to make any home special.

Other names you may have heard of that are made by the AGA Rangemaster group include La Cornue, Falcon, Rayburn, Grange, Fired Earth and of course, AGA.   Known for its longstanding heritage, technical excellence and innovation, these brands are now distributed worldwide, and are incredibly popular.

You may have noticed that we just have Range Cookers available on the website at the moment, but Rangemaster also manufacture dishwashers, refrigeration products, cooker hoods and splashbacks. Whether you like the traditional country kitchen style or, like me, the clean, sophisticated lines of a more modern kitchen, a Rangemaster range cooker will fit in perfectly and will be the focal point in the room.

Rangemaster created the world’s very first range cooker (‘The Kitchener’) in 1830, and the appliance was revolutionary. The cookers were, and still are, manufactured in Royal Leamington Spa using the innovative cast-iron technology that was originally used on ‘The Kitchener’. Obviously, in 180 years this technology has developed slightly but the result is still as impressive as it was in 1830!

Every Rangemaster is designed to make cooking a pleasure, not a chore, and each appliance is manufactured to the highest possible standard, and has a two year parts and labour guarantee. Whether you are a gas lover, an electric fanatic or desire a bit of both, there is a range cooker to suit you.

We at Go-Electrical particularly like the ‘Elan’ range. Available in dual fuel or all electric these range cookers come in a variety of colours – Gloss Black, Racing Green, Latte, Rose Taupe and Cream. They come in 110cm width or a more compact 90cm, but don’t worry if you don’t have room for the 110cm, the 90cm model does not sacrifice performance or any of the other fantastic features that the 110cm size holds.

The ‘Elan’ models have beautiful spiral handles and nice curvaceous doors. The control knobs are chunky to go with the overall look of the appliance, and there is a nice practical rail across the front of the range to hold your cloths, hand towels and oven mitts. ‘Elan’ ranges have two ovens, the left-hand being 69 litres in size and the right, 67 litres, and the appliance is recommended by the Energy Saving Trust. Other key features include; defrost, fan oven, fanned grilling, fan-assisted oven, conventional oven, browning element and base heat settings, cast-iron pan supports, a storage drawer, dual circuit electric grill and a programmable clock & minute minder.

Keep an eye on the Go-Electrical website for more Rangemaster products. If you happen to know that you want a Rangemaster, and you know the model name etc, drop us an email and we will be able to provide you with a quote –

New Cuisinart products, yippee!

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

You may know that some past blog posts have mentioned and discussed Cuisinart, because we at Go-Electrical believe that it is a brilliant brand which offers some great products. Well, we have just been informed that Cuisinart has added three new products to their range. Exciting stuff!

The first of these new products is a Fruit and Vegetable Juice Extractor (CJE1000U) which is very smart with its blue LED light and finished in stainless steel. The juicer is very quiet to use, and it features a 3” feed tube so that less chopping is needed. The juice container has a 1 litre capacity, while the pulp container is a large 2 litre and there is a five speed dial control. All removable parts are dishwasher safe to make life easier, and there is even a cleaning brush included so you can ensure that even the bits that can’t go in the dishwasher are nice and clean. The Fruit and Vegetable Juice Extractor is available to purchase now.

The second of the new products is a new kettle. Cuisinart already produces the ‘Perfectemp’ stove-top dome kettle, and the ‘Multi-temperature’ jug kettle, and now they have added an electric dome style kettle to the range,

The ‘Traditional’ Kettle (CTK17U) in brushed stainless steel holds 1.7 litres of water, and features two large windows so you can see exactly how much water you have and how much it is boiling. There is a nice, comfy soft-grip handle for ease of use and safety, and the on/off switch illuminates blue when the kettle is on. Personally, I prefer dome shaped kettles to taller jug styles, and this one looks quite cute (in a mushroom sort of way!)

The last of the new products is an Electric Spice and Nut Grinder (SG20U) which comes with two stainless steel bowls for grinding and storage. At only 19cm tall and 10cm wide it is nice and compact, and will fit in even the tightest of cupboards. The blades are stainless steel, and specially designed to grind up nuts and spices, and to keep the user safe there is a built-in safety interlock which keeps the lid securely in place while grinding. The grinder is easy to use with a ‘one touch’ control, and it is dishwasher safe, so no need to worry about odours or flavours lingering in the bowls.

The ‘Traditional’ Kettle and the Electrical Spice and Nut Grinder will be available the beginning of September, so keep your eyes peeled for them appearing on the website. All three new products have a three year manufacturer guarantee.

New Steam Cleaners from Polti

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Polti have added two new steam cleaners to their already extensive range, and of course Go-Electrical have them at a really great price!

The new cleaners are compact (only 34 x 34 x 32.5 in size) and look very cute. The Polti Vaporetto Edition is in a crisp white colour and produces 3.5 bar of pressure and up to 80g of steam per minute. It comes with a large floor brush, a small brush, and extension tubes so you can get steam cleaning right away.

The Polti Vaporetto Evolution, the bright green cleaner, produces 4 bar of pressure, and up to 110g of steam per minute. It has a little more oomph than the Edition, and it comes with a few more accessories too. Included is the large floor brush, the small brush and the extension tubes as with the Edition, but the Evolution also comes with a 120 degree tool for getting into tight spots and a window cleaning kit, which consists of a great squeegee to really get your windows sparkling clean.

Apart from the differences pointed out above the two steam cleaners are basically the same – they both have;

  • 4 castors for easy maneuverability
  • A low water level light indicator
  • A steam ready light indicator
  • A parking system for anchoring the brush to the appliance

Both the Edition and Evolution have a boiler volume of 1.7L, and the maximum power of the machines is 2250W, with the boiler power coming in at 1500W.

If you are looking for a reliable Polti steam cleaner that is more robust than the Vaporetto 950, the new Edition or Evolution could be the steam cleaner for you.

The Country Cookshop at Go-Electrical

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Have you visited our Cookshop pages? You should really take a look, it won’t hurt…well it may hurt your bank balance!

In our Cookshop we sell big names such as Joseph Joseph, Hahn and Le Creuset plus lots more. There is everything from ovenware to utensils, chopping boards to pan racks, kitchen scales to oven mitts. You will find things you never knew you needed, and things you have always wanted but never got round to buying.

The Maxwell & Williams products are great. There are potato peelers, measuring spoons and lots of other useful utensils. They come in red and black, and are designed to be comfortable and easy to use and to lessen your preparation time in the kitchen. They also do oven proof dishes – perfect for cooking a nice crumble in for after your Sunday roast.

If cast iron cookware is more your thing, we have some great Cuisinart items, and if you want to spend a little more then look no further than the well-known Le Creuset range. It is available in a variety of colours, and any one would make a perfect wedding or anniversary present. Our colour of the moment is ‘Cerise’, a lovely red colour, but this could be because the ‘Heart’ casserole dish is available in this colour!

For traditional tableware look no further than Fairmont & Main – recognisable by their cute spot design and available in blue or red. The cake stand is a must-buy and the butter dish is very sweet. For the more modern, design driven of you out there, Alessi are always the go to brand for quirky, designer products (just take a look at the ‘Mr Chin’ egg cup) but if you aren’t so into the ‘out-there’ Alessi products, take a look at Joseph Joseph. Bright, colourful and extremely practical their products are fantastic, and we love the ‘Hands On’ salad bowls because they are great for summer BBQ’s – if the weather ever picks up that is!

So, do you want your kitchen to really live up to its full potential? (It is the centre of every home after all). Well if you do, you need to make sure you have the right tools, so go on, visit the Cookshop and see what’s on offer.

KitchenAid free gifts

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

If you have read this blog before, you will know that here at Go-Electrical we are completely head over heels in LOVE with KitchenAid Artisan mixers. Well, because of a fantastic offer and some lush new colours now is the time to invest in one if you haven’t already!

At the moment, when a Kitchenaid Mixer is purchased (from £399.00) customers receive a great free gift in the shape of a fabulous, useful knife set and knife block. Also, by purchasing a mixer, customers automatically qualify for a free cookbook from KitchenAid, and an amazing KitchenAid utensil set, which are claim by redemption of a claim form direct through KitchenAid themselves. These three fantastic gifts total £126.00 in value, and will enhance your cooking experience no end!

The most recent colours released by KitchenAid are stylish and sleek, but as you would expect there are also some vibrant shades in the range too. The Raspberry Ice has proved very popular, and so has the Café Latte, which has sold out due to such high demand (don’t panic it will be back soon). There is a lovely bronze colour called Apple Cider, Electric Blue and a great new black colour with sparkly bits in named Black Storm. The very popular Candy Apple Red which was released to celebrate KitchenAid’s 90th birthday, has been reissued, but this time it includes a glass mixing bowl instead of the stainless steel one.

There are 24 colours of KitchenAid Artisan Mixers to choose from at Go-Electrical – go on, have a peek, you might find one to fit perfectly with your kitchen.
