Everyone says the kitchen is the heart of the home, so what better place to show off your stuff? To save you a hunt for the hottest home appliances, here are a few of the most popular new products from some of cooking's most upscale companies.
Cuisinart 2-lb. Convection Bread Maker
Sure, most bread makers are put through a few trial runs, then spend the rest of their life collecting dust somewhere. But not the Cuisinart. With 16 settings to create artisanal, gluten-free, and low-carb bread, it uses convection heat so breads are crusty and perfectly browned every time.
KitchenAid Dual Fuel Convection Range with Steam-Assist
The key to finishing the perfect pot roast or succulent cheesecake isn't in the ingredients; it's in the cooking method. This full-size, freestanding convection range with steam-assist retains more internal moisture while allowing for better browning, crisping, and caramelizing.
Wolf Induction Cooktop
From the company that spent 70 years leading the cooking learning curve, Wolf now brings induction cooking—already in use in Europe for decades— to North America. Unlike a traditional cooktop, induction cooking uses the transfer of magnetic energy to generate heat—and it's 50 percent faster.
Sub-Zero PRO 48 Refrigerator
The largest unit made by the refrigerator powerhouse company, the PRO 48 has 18.4 cubic fridge feet and 11.4 cubic freezer feet. It features Sub-Zero's dual refrigeration system and an alarm to indicate when a drawer is left ajar. It even has a Sabbath mode for religious observances.
Jenn-Air Floating Glass French Door Refrigerator
Had enough of stainless steel? Consider Jenn-Air's new line of glass-panel appliances. Reflecting Art Deco influences, the line includes the French door refrigerator, a 20-cubic-foot model with a sleek, cabinet-depth design, and a temperature-controlled "Gourmet Bay" storage drawer with a wine-bottle holder.
Waring Pro Juicerator with Pulp Eject System
The Pro Juicerator from Waring takes the prep and mess out of at-home juicing. The appliance can juice hard items like parsnips with ease, and has a feeding tube large enough to accommodate a whole tomato so there's less slicing and dicing required. Juice pours into the machine's 50-ounce cup.
Cuisinart PartyPop Popcorn Maker
Let's face it, most microwave popcorn tastes like buttered cardboard. If you have a hankering for old-fashioned flavor, the Cuisinart PartyPop brings back the taste in microwave time—10 cups in less than five minutes. A motorized stirrer prevents scorching and the lid can be used for serving.
