The Block is back, serving up all the reno inspo along with the year’s hottest appliance must-haves!

As a proud supplier to Australia’s favourite reno show, The Good Guys has teamed up with Kinsman Kitchens and home appliance icons Fisher & Paykel to kit out The Block Contestants Steph and Gian with all the winning-edge appliances they need to nail their kitchen and laundry makeovers in House 4 – and outshine the competition on auction day.


“Fisher & Paykel are known to deliver luxury appliances with considered designs that not only look beautiful in any home, but also deliver exceptional results every time. For their appearance on The Block this year, that included  washing machines that can sense and respond to each load, fully integrated fridges with variable temperature zones, and Double DishDrawer™ Dishwashers that can be used independently with separate wash programs" says Peter Simic, The Good Guys Buyer – Refrigeration & Laundry

Steph and Gian’s design inspo? This young Sydney couple is gunning for a Japandi style for their 1950s bungalow makeover – a modern mash-up of Scandinavian design and a Japanese aesthetic. That called for purposeful appliances rooted in minimalist design principles. Cue Fisher & Paykel with a suite of pitch-perfect kitchen and laundry products, poised to score big points across the board.

From true multi-function ovens finished in elegant black glass and integrated fridges that fit seamlessly in to kitchen cabinetry and, a laundry suite delivering exceptional fabric care, we reveal the Fisher & Paykel appliances that create the complete appliance suite.

Kitchen Perfection

What is the essential kit for any pair of sociable newlyweds designing their dream kitchen renovation?  Home kitchen appliances designed to work together seamlessly to transform ingredients into cuisine, chores into beautiful experiences and routines into rituals.


“Fisher & Paykel bring together a cooking suite that gives the Blockheads freedom of expression whilst giving them cooking combinations to suit their lifestyle” says Tania Grillinzoni, The Good Guys Buyer – Cooking.


For Steph and Gian, their absolute must-haves included a combination steam oven with 23 functions to deliver exceptional cooking performance; an innovative induction cooktop with in-built ventilation (perfect for creating that pared-back Japandi style); a combination microwave oven with a choice of nine cooking modes and a vacuum seal drawer for effortless preparation of sous vide


“To give an entertainer’s kitchen the edge, Fisher & Paykel’s combination steam oven gives precise temperature control to ensure food is cooked gently and evenly. Perfect for entertaining, you can sous vide proteins such as steak and salmon before guests arrive and simply sear ready to serve,” says Tania.

Refrigeration To Care For Every Food

The best refrigeration gives you the control to set the right temperature with the right humidity for your food and Fisher & Paykel helped Steph and Gian create the ultimate entertainer’s nirvana at 20 Charming Street.

In their show-stopping, new main kitchen, the column refrigerator and freezer feature Variable Temperature Zones which ensure optimal storage and convenience. Choose from Fridge, Pantry or Chill on the refrigerator, adjust zones for maximum everyday convenience, or change modes to provide additional chilling capacity for special occasions. Also look out for stylish wine cabinets with dual zones for storing wine of any variety, and an oh-so-handy cooling drawer to house all that dinner party overflow.

Freedom From Routine

Great dishwashers do not simply clean dishes, they can be placed to suit your patterns of use and lifestyle, whilst blending seamlessly to create your dream kitchen.

Fisher & Paykel’s Double DishDrawer™ dishwasher keeps the bench space free from dirty dishes, with one drawer cleaning while another is ready to be loaded; each drawer holds a true half load for guilt-free small washes and fast turnaround. With minimal installation gaps to match your cabinetry, Integrated style DishDrawer™ Dishwashers can blend seamlessly with the kitchen materiality, or contrast with stainless steel panels and handles.

“As The Block’s first architect contestant, Steph knew better than most that to impress the judges, their anchor appliances had to be both beautiful to look at and beautiful to use, so going with Fisher & Paykel in House 4 was a no-brainer.” Peter Simic, The Good Guys Buyer – Refrigeration & Laundry
