Based in the ancient northern Italian city of Modena - home to balsamic vinegar and car makers Ferrari and Lamborghini- Glem Gas has produced high quality cookers since 1959.
Emilia Glem is the Australian subsidiary of Glem Gas SpA, a family-owned company.
Glem Gas is still in the business of manufacturing cooking appliances in its own factories and today exports to Europe, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Asia. All Glem Gas factories have ISO 9000 Quality Accreditation.
The 2011 range of Glem cooking appliances is a new line of cooking appliances for passionate cooks. Made with characteristic Italian design flair and quality components, combined with leading manufacturing technology for today’s kitchen, Glem appliances are designed to provide cooks with more control over their cooking results.
One of the biggest decisions in purchasing an oven is whether to choose gas or electricity; the efficiency and environmental benefits of gas versus the convenience and ease of electricity.
Why choose gas?
Commonly used in commercial kitchens, gas also suits environmentally conscious households due to its clean, economical and fast heating features. Gas cookers cut cooking energy costs by half1 and have the added advantage of the lowest carbon dioxide emissions of any fossil fuel with only 1/3 of the greenhouse gas emissions of electricity2.
Aside from the environmental benefits, gas produces a moist heat which minimises drying out and shrinkage, perfect for roasting meats. Gas also heats the oven cavity twice as fast as electricity and gas cooktops have the advantage of rapid heat response when the flame is adjusted.
Glem gas ovens achieve even heat distribution through fan assistance, eliminating cold spots and allowing baking on more than one shelf at a time.
Why choose electric?
For homes not connected to the gas supply, electric ovens provide an efficient alternative. Electric ovens are known for producing a dry heat, suitable for baking pastries and biscuits and giving a crisp result.
Glem electric ovens have the added advantage of programmability, enabling them to be switched off and on at a pre-set time. Most Glem electric ovens have more than one cooking function allowing heat to be applied from the top, centre or bottom. Electric cooktops have improved with faster heat up and cool down times. With their high efficiency and enhanced design features, the Glem electric ceramic cooktops and for 2011 induction cooktops are a great alternative to gas.
