Together with our research and development colleagues in our on-site laboratory, we constantly hunt for new technology as well as new manufacturing methods and materials so that we can continually improve our products, including finding ways for our products to be more energy efficient so they are cheaper to run, or quieter so that they are not intrusive in the kitchen, or faster so that they get the job done quicker.
