  • Distinta is the evolution of traditional breakfast appliances design through new shapes and finishing. The contemporary Squircle design is the perfect fusion of square and circle. It epitomises De'Longhi's capability in treating raw materials - simplifying them by using a single raw material, and enriching them through the complexity of shape. Sophisticated matt-metallic finishings in trending colours, with chromed details, make the Distinta collection a showpiece for any designer kitchen.

  • The Distinta Variable Temperature kettle allows the flexibility to choose between 5 temperatures settings - 75C, 80C, 85C, 90C, and 100C - providing the perfect brewing temperature for tea infusions or coffee. A Keep Warm button keeps the desired temperature for 20 minutes. The kettle has been designed with a detachable 360 ° swivel base for easy maneuverability, while the base incorporates cord storage and non-slip feet for stability. Safety features include thermal cut-off and auto shut-off when boiled or lifted from base.

  • Created to enhance the user's breakfast experience, the Distinta Toaster has been designed with ease of use and functionality. The controls have been separated to allow two different uses simultaneously, while the progressive browning controls provide easy control for the perfect toast. Electronic controls for reheating and defrosting provide further control over cooking, and an 'Extra Lift' position makes it easy to safely remove smaller slices.

  • The Distinta Pump Coffee Machine has a compact design incorporating De'Longhi's traditional high quality thermoblock system. In conjunction with its stainless steel group head for durability, and professional barista baskets to accommodate for a variety of sizes and functions, coffee production is designed to be simple and reliable for every use. Operation has been simplified with a turn-dial control to switch on coffee or steam for texturing milk. The steam arm utilises a twin valve system, making it easy to deliver a perfectly textured milk solution.
