The kitchen is a major force for social networking – a place used for more than just creating meals. That’s why Electrolux has conducted a global search for kitchen anecdotes. The search provided all manner of unusual, intriguing and inspiring stories: a couple hearing their son saying his first words; playing host to 11 Latvian weight-lifters; demonstrating how to make orange juice at the Brazilian Embassy in Stockholm and sending out a live 24/7 webcast for three months from an Italian kitchen.
Electrolux, together with its brands AEG-Electrolux and Zanussi, ranked as leaders in its sector in the first annual ranking of prominent brands sold in the UK and their ambitions to cut carbon.
