“Point of use appliances” refers to the trend to locate appliances in proximity to where they are going to get used rather than at a single central location in the kitchen. An example of this would include the trend toward refrigerator, freezer, and wine units in “columns”. Bosch, Gaggenau, GE Monogram, Miele, Thermador, and Sub Zero all manufacture columns.
Beyond the point of use benefit which allows consumers to place columns conveniently where they need them most, there is the flexibility of mixing and matching to receive just the right amount of freezer, refrigerator, and wine storage space. Some of these units have lower freezer drawers with icemakers and convertible drawers that can be set as low as -5 degrees Farenheit to as high as 55 degrees.
Finally, the narrow width and depth make these columns ideal for flush, integrated installation so that they blend in perfectly with adjacent cabinets. Visit the experts at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center for more information on point of use column refrigerators and freezers.
