Have you ever wanted to redo your kitchen? I have many times. One of the things that many people take into consideration when considering or planning a kitchen remodel is major appliances. Obviously every kitchen needs them. And since you have to have them, it’s a good thing if they not only work well and do what they’re supposed to do, but also if they look good. I have no doubt in my mind that the new major appliance collection from KitchenAid does those things.
I remember when black appliances came out I thought they were the best. Then stainless steel appliances came out and I liked them even more. KitchenAid has come out with something I’ve never seen before – black stainless steel major appliances! They are part of a new KitchenAid major appliance collection, which is also available in stainless steel, black and white.
“Our goal with the new line was to amplify the design and craftsmanship that separate KitchenAid from its increasingly non-differentiated competitors,” said Cynthia Soledad, Senior Director of KitchenAid. “In doing so, we’re reaffirming our leadership in creating products that are valued equally for how they work and look. Cooks often share with us their love for the eye-catching appearance and performance of the KitchenAid stand mixer. With this new collection we took a holistic approach in creating an entire major appliance suite that inspires passion and culinary creativity.”
The collection was professionally-inspired, but was designed to look warm and non-industrial. The new appliances have sturdy bar handles that are etched with a professional-style, cross hatched pattern that enhances grip, and chrome inlaid frames that accent the transition between glass and other surfaces. Red KitchenAid medallions inscribed “KitchenAid 1919” (signifying the year the stand mixer was introduced and the brand was founded ) cap the bar handles, and serve as “our iconic finishing stamp, a mark of craftsmanship and precision,” said Soledad. The medallions will also be available in other colors.
“Aside from contributing to the line’s fresh, bold appearance, these and other distinctive design elements serve another key purpose,” said Soledad. “They immediately signal from the outside the high performance found inside.”
There are a number of new or improved performance features that have been incorporated into the new collection. Several dishwasher models have a unique nine-in-one, dynamic wash arm that sprays water everywhere in the dishwasher, including hard to reach places, for better coverage and superior cleaning. A new 30-inch gas cooktop features an exclusive Even-Heat™ Torch Burner with a flame that evenly covers the bottom of cookware to ensure even heating. Ovens feature the Even-Heat True Convection, with an exclusive bowtie design and convection fan that ensures the inside of the entire oven is heated to, and stays at, the perfect temperature. There is also a new perimeter ventilation system option available that pulls air from each edge of the hood while increasing airflow in the center. Refrigerators feature the Preserva® Food Care System, which helps extend freshness, minimize odors and delay over-ripening.
The new KitchenAid collection sounds totally awesome, and it looks beautiful too! You can see more photos and learn more about it in the slideshow below.
