Teamwork makes the dream work
ASKO is a Scandinavian manufacturer that specializes in high-quality kitchen and laundry appliances. ASKO products are developed by combining traditional craftsmanship, user driven innovation and a passion for design. For more than a decade WAACS has been developing appliances together with the in-house design teams at ASKO in Sweden and the Netherlands. In close collaboration we worked on washing machines, gas and induction cookers, hobs, hoods and refrigerators. In all projects user driven design has been the key success factor.

ASKO Celsius°Cooking™ is a line up of smart induction hobs and cookware with a unique precise temperature control and an interactive recipe app.
The system consists of an induction hob with an intuitive user interface, pans with built in temperature sensors, a probe and an app, communicating with each other wirelessly, to control the temperatures and timings precisely: heating oil till the right temperature to not exceed the smoke point, no burning of your steak and have unhealthy carbons; no over-boiling. In the app there are also video guided recipes with preset temperatures, which help you to create dishes that are both tasty and healthy.
