I am constantly oohing over gorgeous kitchens. For serious cooks though the beautiful kitchen isn’t enough. Function comes before beauty and the current technology continues to amaze me. Here are some new products that keep top chefs channeling their inner Tom or Julia.
GAS RANGES/ OVENS
Blue Star Cooking– I LOVE this great looking Double Gas Wall Oven. It’s available in 190 colors.
Michael Smith put the Blue Star range in a client’s house and said it is
“the best professional stove for a house”.
Bertazonni makes some great looking ones too with matching hoods.
Wolf makes a microwave warming drawer that keeps food warm for thirty minutes.
It doesn’t have a handle though so it could get finger prints on it easily.
American Standard’s Chandler Sink is made of corian.
It is a completely renewable surface and very low maintenance.
An all purpose work station sink from Julien.
I also like the Simplice Pull Down faucet.
Crevasse Prep Sink from Kohler with disposal. Prep looks easier…
Responsibly harvested wood countertops just keep getting better looking.
I like these from Grothouse Lumber.
Granite, Marble and Soapstone continue to be favorites
but butcher block is very affordable and user friendly.
36″ Freezer from Dacor with a wide range of colors to chose from.
As most of you know, I have two precious little boys and I already cook a ton.
I feel like one of these (Electrolux) is in my future…
and possibly this built-incoffee dispenser if I don’t start getting some more sleep…
What do you want in your kitchen?
