【本報訊】進駐香港約二十年的日資家電專門店「BEST」全面撤出香港家電零售市場,「BEST」現存三間分店由於業務轉移,六月一日起將由「蘇寧鐳射」接管,購買了「BEST」現金代用券的市民可兌換回現金,送貨及保養安排則可致電熱線查詢。據了解,「BEST」約有一百名員工,最終有多少員工能過渡至「蘇寧鐳射」,昨未能取得兩間公司回應。

「蘇寧鐳射」接手

在香港譯名為「最好電器」的「BEST」一九五三年在日本成立,其後在台灣、馬來西亞、新加坡及印尼等地開設分店,為日本第七大家電零售店,上世紀八十年代後期進駐香港,全盛時期有八間分店,目前僅餘九龍灣旗艦店以及大角咀與屯門分店。

記者昨前往「BEST」九龍灣旗艦店及大角咀分店了解,發現兩店均拉上大閘,有員工在內整理文件及執拾電器,不少貨架已空無一物。其中一間分店職員透露,「BEST」將於後日轉移業務,原址轉由另一大型電器零售連鎖店「蘇寧鐳射」營運。雖然「BEST」昨仍運作,但主要為員工盤點貨品及解答客戶查詢,實際零售業務已於上周五(二十七日)傍晚停止。

根據「BEST」分店張貼的告示,該公司會繼續向參加五項全面保用計劃的客戶提供服務,保養、維修及送貨事宜亦設熱線供查詢。由後日起,持有有效且未過期現金代用券的消費者,可到「BEST」九龍灣寫字樓兌換回現金。有業界人士稱,「BEST」香港零售點放盤消息年初已傳出,因此估計未必與三月日本大地震有直接關係,租金高昂才是主因。

「蘇寧鐳射」前身為「鐳射電器」,內地家電巨頭「蘇寧電器」○九年成功收購後,「鐳射電器」改稱「蘇寧鐳射」,管理層曾指計劃把「蘇寧鐳射」分店增至五十間以上,洽購「BEST」在港零售業務可能只是併購行動的其中一部分。

電磁爐選購的4要素及使用的5要決

電磁爐選購的4要素及使用的5要決

體積小巧、外形美觀的電磁爐一直是許多家庭的最愛。不提高廚房溫度,沒有對人體有害的微波輻射,食物加熱,煎、炒、煮、蒸、烤可直接進行,與傳統灶台相比功能可是樣樣不少,大有成為廚房主力軍的勢頭。

  選購電磁爐4要:

  一要:選擇知名品牌。生活中所有的電器都會產生輻射,電磁爐也不例外。雖然電磁爐本身輻射較少,但選擇高品質的電磁爐會更好地保障你的安全。

  二要:功率適當。為避免不必要的浪費,選擇符合你家庭使用的電磁爐。像一般的三口之家,購買800瓦的電磁爐就能滿足要求,如果人數較多,可選擇1000W-2000W的高功率電磁爐。

  三要:爐面外觀平整無損。現在市場上出售的電磁爐的爐面,大多是採用耐熱晶化陶瓷製成的。在購買時,要注意爐面的平整度。如爐面有凸、凹或某一側有傾斜,會影響熱效率的正常產生。

  四要:親手檢驗。購買時,可以把電磁爐翻過來晃動,看風扇的扇葉與軸、軸與軸承間是否存在間隙與鬆動;通電後,電動機應無明顯的雜訊或摩擦聲,扇葉的轉動應平穩、無失圓或搖擺旋轉等現象。保養電磁爐3要:

  1. 剛購買回的電磁爐為防止控制面板的覆蓋薄膜使用時間長後脫落,要用透明膠、塑膠薄膜等材料覆蓋或粘貼在控制面板上,這樣就可起到保護控制面板的覆蓋的作用。

  2. 電磁爐使用完畢,要把功率電位器先調到最小位置,然後關閉電源,再取下鐵鍋,這時面板的加熱範圍圈內切忌用手直接觸摸。

  3. 清潔爐具要得法。電磁爐同其他電器一樣,在使用中要注意防水防潮,並避免接觸有害液體。不能用溶劑、汽油來清洗爐面或爐體。另外,也不要用金屬刷、紗布等較硬的工具來擦拭爐面上的油蹟污垢。正在使用或剛使用結束的爐面不要馬上用冷水去擦。

  使用電磁爐5要:

  1. 放置要平整。放置電磁爐的桌面要平整,特別是在餐桌上吃火鍋等時更應注意。如果桌面不平,讓電磁爐一腳懸空,鍋具的重力會迫使爐體強行變形甚至損壞。另外,桌面傾斜也容易使鍋具滑出而發生危險。

  2. 使用電磁爐時一定要選擇鐵磁性材料製作的鍋具,如鐵鍋、不銹鋼鍋、搪瓷鍋,並且鍋底保證有一定的平面與電磁爐充分接觸。

  3. 鍋具不要過重。電磁爐不同於磚或鐵等材料結構建造的爐具,其承載重量是有限的,一般連鍋具帶食物不應超過5公斤。如果需要對超重超大的鍋具進行加熱,最好對鍋具另設支撐架,然後把電磁爐插入鍋底。

  4. 食物容器要放置在電磁爐中央。當容器偏離中央時,可能造成無法平衡散熱,產生故障。

  5. 電磁爐加熱至高溫時,要避免將食物容器拿起再放下。瞬間功率忽大忽小,容易損壞電磁爐機板。

Overdone it Sylvester? Topless Stallone shows off his array of colourful tattoos, against his sagging skin on set of new film

Overdone it Sylvester? Topless Stallone shows off his array of colourful tattoos, against his sagging skin on set of new film

He may be old enough to qualify for a free bus pass and be on the verge of collecting his pension, but Sylvester Stallone isn't too old for inkings.


The Rocky actor showed off his colourful array of tattoos on the set of his latest film Bullet In The Head.

At 64, Sly is no spring chicken, but the New Yorker did display his impressive biceps as he walked around topless in New Orleans.

While Stallone has sported the body art on his shoulders for several years, the back picture appears to be from a new visit to the parlour.


The portrait of Jennifer Flavin, his third wife, is painted on his right shoulder and upper arm.


Stallone went under the needle in 2007 to honour his tenth wedding anniversary to the former model.


Three roses are dotted around her face to symbolise their three daughters Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet - each of who has the middle name Rose.


Running down his spine was a dagger that pierced a heart bursting into flames, but the bright colours looked out of place next to his sagging skin.


Fellow tattooed A-listers David Beckham and Angelina Jolie should take note to be careful of future etchings as age threatens to send skin south.

Considering his back catalogue, it's no surprise that Sly's latest project is an action film.


The story follows Stallone as he teams up with a young detective after they are brought together by two vicious murders.


The duo then embark on a high-stakes investigation and are willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge.


Walter Hill, who produced all of the Alien films, will direct.

Meanwhile, the film has been shrouded in a race scandal after US actor Thomas Jane claimed to be sacked from the production for being white.


Warner Bros recast his role with a 'more ethnic' actor to appeal to a wider audience, announcing that Sung Kang will co-star with Stallone instead.


Jane said: 'Well, Joel Silver (producer) came onboard the project and said that he has a quote-unquote "formula" for these quote-unquote "buddy movies" and it has to be a white guy and a quote-unquote "ethnic guy".


'And they relieved me of duty and basically paid me off, which I was really upset about. I didn’t get a call from Stallone. I was a little upset about that.


'Maybe they didn’t want anybody on the movie with a bigger d*** than him.'
