French Door Ovens

French door refrigerators have been a popular choice for several years, but French door ovens are starting to gather steam in the industry. Not only is the design modern and sophisticated, but it maximizes space in the kitchen since the doors open to the side. The GE Cafe™ is inspired by durable commercial kitchen designs, and precision engineering allows for one-handed opening of both oven doors simultaneously.

Steam Ovens

Steam ovens offer a variety of benefits. They retain moisture better than convection ovens, which provides better overall flavor. They refresh leftovers easily, defrost meats effectively, and expertly proof pastries. Consider improving your cooking experience with a steam oven from Wolf. With an attractive design and 10 cooking modes, you can finally live out your Top Chef fantasies in the comfort of your own home.

Innovative Features

A new year brings new technology. In 2018, kitchen appliances will see a surge in Bluetooth compatibility. Synchronizing an appliance with your phone or tablet allows you to monitor your appliance while you’re away or in another room of the house. For example, the Viking Sealed Burner Gas Range includes iDevices accessory meat thermometer allowing monitoring of food from up to 200 feet away! You can relax in the den knowing that your souffle won’t overbake.

Modern Ice Machines

As the world develops, the needs of the people change. In this particular case, people tend to prefer chewable ice to crescent-shaped cubes. If you don’t think that the shape and quality of ice matters, try making a Moscow mule with both varieties. The difference in flavor is truly astonishing! The Viking Undercounter Ice Machine produces perfect soft and chewable ice that assumes the flavor of any beverage.
