New Professional Home Appliances Updated
Pro-Style® Cooking Appliances are Changing
The Pro-Look Gets a Sleek Update
As professional looking appliances have gained popularity in luxury kitchens, they have often been mixed with sleek flush European style appliances. A Bosch or Asko dishwasher featuring a flush matching cabinet panel disappears into the cabinetry while nearby there is a Sub-Zero integrated built-in refrigerator with hidden hinges and door panels that match the adjacent cabinets. They’re invisible as appliances and fit right in to the wall.
Though it’s not possible to do this with cooking appliances, manufacturers have made their cooktops and ranges much more sleek and contemporary-looking. This has become particularly noticeable recently, as even Professional Style appliances have become more flush, but still keep their Pro heritage. Check out the three entries below from Jenn-Air, Wolf, and Miele.
Jenn-Air’s new 30″ and 36″ Pro-Style® cooktops have undergone a complete redesign. Not only have they added more power and new brass burners, but the surface of the cooktop itself is as near to flush as you can get without being inset into the counter. The heavy duty knobs still have a Pro look and feel, but they are somewhat less obtrusive. By the way, the term Pro-Style® is a registered Jenn-Air trademark.
Wolf’s new “M” Series Professional Oven still sports their signature red knobs, but also has touch electronic controls that work in conjunction with the knobs. Wolf has worked their magic by producing a jumbo oven with twin convection fans, yet it all fits flush in a 24″ deep cabinet for a Professional look that is at the same time contemporary and sleek.
Following their motto Immer Besser (Forever Better), Miele has spent several years in the development of their first range ever. With several potential game-changing exclusive features, Miele seems to have rethought the Professional style range. Though “New”, Miele’s first range looks like a Miele even from afar. The range has the sleek unadorned aesthetic Miele is known for. Everything is there for a reason, and each feature has been re-thought by the famous Miele German engineering. Some day we’ll all wonder why the handle on our oven doesn’t rotate with our hand movement like it does on the new Miele range.
