Excerpt from: Appliance Trends: Show Focuses On Colors, Cooking Times By Karen Schwartz
Published by The Journal Times, April 26, 2016

AGA At KBIS 2016LAS VEGAS (AP) — Whether you’re Paleo, vegan or something in between, today’s luxury kitchen appliances are designed to let you individualize everything from color to cooking method.

“There’s a paradigm shift to personalization in the kitchen,” said Christopher von Nagel, president and chief executive officer of BSH Home Appliances Corp. North America.

BSH, which makes the Bosch, Gaggenau and Thermador brands, and more than 500 other exhibitors showed off their wares at this year’s three-day Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, held in Las Vegas. Walking through the crowd of more than 100,000 dealers, builders, architects, designers and suppliers, it became apparent that anyone shopping for a new kitchen should be prepared to make a lot of decisions, because the choices are overwhelming.

Among the highlights:

COOKING IN COLOR

AGA City 24 Cast Iron LemonWhile there’s still plenty of stainless, colored appliances are back in a big way.

Aga, owned by Middleby Corp., advertised a five-step “build your own” range with a choice of fuel types; options for two-, three-, five- or seven-oven configurations; and 15 enamel finishes, including British racing green, pistachio, duck-egg blue, aubergine and heather. One matching collection included a range, vent hood, dishwasher and refrigerator in dark red. For more details on AGA products, click here.

Customize Your Indoor Cooking Experience

Excerpt from: A High-End Grill Brand Goes Indoors—and Upmarket By Keith Barry
Published by Reviewed.com, April 14, 2016

48CaliberIndoorProRangeSuiteCaliber may be best known as a flagship brand for outdoor cooking, but the company’s new 48-inch ranges are headed indoors.

Of course, those doors won’t lead to just any homes. These ranges are only meant for the most exclusive kitchens—not just because they’re priced between $9,500 and $15,000, but because every Caliber range is custom built to each customer’s specifications.

Caliber-Ranges-Burner-LitLike a bespoke suit or couture gown, Caliber ranges are whatever you want them to be. Want four burners and a griddle? No problem. A French top that converts into a wok burner, with a wooden handle and an orange exterior? Caliber has you covered.
No matter which exterior color you choose, or which variety of wood or metal handle you pick, the quality remains the same. Multi-port brass burners direct gas flames to the bottom of your cookware, and cast-iron grates fit snugly into brass fittings.

The Caliber brand is the brainchild of two appliance industry veterans, Randy Rummel and Dan Nichols, who also co-founded the upscale DCS brand decades ago. Caliber started with high-end outdoor grills, and only recently moved into building ranges for indoor kitchens. For more details on Caliber products, click here.

The Refrigeration Experience

Excerpt from: A Chill Is In The Air By Stacey Ballis
Published by Polymath Chronicles (Blog), April 12, 2016

Big fridgeSo I figured the best way to handle the kitchen reno reveals, is to just remind you of the previous posts and then update you on how the choices are working out so far!

So today, we can revisit refrigeration! Remember the fridge post?  Well all three of the Marvel fridges are installed and loaded and ready for a full report.  And the report?  Is awesome!

First, the big boy…

We decided to inset the fridge between the food pantry and the kitchen library, so that it would not stick out into the room, much as you might do if you were installing it within your cabinetry.  We trimmed out the space with woodwork that matches the original woodwork from the house, so that it would integrate well.  And we chose the glass door on the fridge so that it would break up the look, and not create a wall of stainless steel.

Open fridgeHere is the fridge side, opened.  And yes, that awesome blue light is standard, and I just love it!  Ditto the stainless steel interior, which is both easy to clean and looks terrific.  You’ll notice that there are four deep drawers at the bottom, we have designated one of these for vegetables, one for deli meats and other easy lunch items, one for raw meats, and one for fruit.  The rest of the space is just open shelving, so I invested heavily in plastic trays and bins and organizers so that we could corral the rest of our stuff.

We bought this fridge because it is very deep, so it holds a great deal, and is amazing for large entertaining platters and such, but it does require some forethought on the organization side, especially when you have a small condiment hoarding problem as we do.  I have a tray for Asian ingredients, one for other condiments, one for salad dressings, one for pickles, one for jams and jellies.  We’ve got the whole top shelf for beverages, the second one down for dairy, and we keep the bottom shelf fairly open for leftovers or other prepped items.  I have to say, it has been a really amazing shift from our old small fridge to this one…everything has a place, and I don’t have to completely pull everything out of a shelf to add or remove an item.  Glorious! For more details on Marvel products, click here.
