Gas Water Heater [淼]: Innovative Technology, Comfortable Experience

The overall pure appearance of Wanxiang series of gas water heater [淼] are inspired by water. The combination of flowing water shape and visibly light materials creates this shining right-angle curved-screen water heater, which realizes the naked-eye 3D effect on the appearance, can be well integrated into the modern home environment, and has the practicality of easy cleaning.

During bathing time, users care most about the water temperature. Only when the water temperature with almost zero-fluctuation, it can give users a more comfortable bathing experience.

In 2008, Macro pioneered the “zero cold water” technology in the industry, and the Wanxiang series of gas water heater is equipped with an upgraded version of the “zero cold water heat cruise system” which ensures heat preservation. People can enjoy hot water anytime at home.

People are also very concerned about the water flow when using water heaters. Wanxiang gas water heater uses a “flying-flow supercharged engine” to maximize the water flow rate to 100% of the common water flow rate. Even for users who live on higher floors or using water at peak hours, they can take a comfortable bath.

Stove [焱]: Even Temperature for Delicious Stir-Fried Dishes

When people are cooking, if the stove cannot control the fire very well, the bottom of the pot will be unevenly heated, which means that the dishes won’t be tasty and the pot are easily got burnt.

Wanxiang series of stove is inspired by fire and flame. The overall design is about dynamic and simple modern style. The unique “cornice design” of the outer ring fire cover enables to gather the central fire better to meet the users need of stir-frying with even temperature.

Through technical upgrades, Wanxiang series of stove has up to 5.2kW of thermal load and 65% of thermal efficiency, which are higher than the national first-level energy efficiency standard. It saves energy and gas.

Hood [飍]: Take Away Cooking Fumes, Keep Delicious Smells

Long-term inhalation of cooking fumes during cooking is not good for health. In order to quickly and effectively remove cooking fumes, the Wanxiang series of hood uses Macro’s unique patent “double arc smoke-guiding structure” in design, and cooking fumes automatically flow upward along the curved arc surface.

After optimizing the structure, the exhaust volume of the hood can reach up to 22m³/min in maximum. The cooking fumes can be exhausted right away. Even cooking in an open kitchen, the kitchen will be still very clean after cooking.

When people are focusing on cooking, they just need to wave their hands to turn on/off the hood or adjust the exhaust level.
