The Rinnai user

Last February 26, Rinnai invited handpicked homemakers to try its appliances first hand. TV host and mom Bambi del Rosario-Young lead the event with a cooking class that showcased the power and flexibility of Rinnai stoves. Within a short span of time, Bambi was able to cook three dishes simultaneously: Beef Gyudon, Parmesan Herb-Crusted Salmon, and Steamed Asparagus and Mushroom.

Prior to the event, Bambi spent weeks testing the stove. And the verdict? “It is innovative.  For a small sized stove, I am pleasantly surprised by its three-in-one function. It is a griller, oven, and stove, all at the same time. For busy moms like me, this is a game changer.”

John adds that Rinnai delivers the best products, thanks to the continuous improvements using Japanese technlogy, “Rinnai is used by people who want long-term relationships with their appliances. Through innovation, Rinnai is able to come up with everyday products that are dependable, safe, and long-lasting.”
