More Smart Appliances for your Home

New Jenn-Air Wall Ovens

In 2009, as Jenn-Air was transitioning from a mass premium brand to a super-premium brand, they introduced a new game-changing wall oven. Now, Jenn-Air is preparing to update their state-of-the-art 2009 oven with their new “connected” wall oven. While “connected” or “smart” are the appliance buzzwords for 2015, there’s much more to tout on Jenn-Air’s new oven than it’s remote wi-fi operation. But we’ll save that for a future blog and focus on just how smart this new oven really is.

Jenn-Air Oven Controls

Jenn-Air has had touch screens for a long time, and their exisiting oven features Jenn-Air’s exclusive menu with a full-color display, enabling users to select the desired doneness of their roast by the interior color of the meat. Jenn-Air’s new (and much larger) oven keeps that full-color display, improves upon it, and adds remote operability. This means that the new oven can be controlled from your Android or Apple IOS device as well as from the oven’s home screen.

Your app equipped smart phone will allow you to remotely preheat the oven and control its operation from beginning to end. Using the wired temperature probe of the oven, the oven can communicate the food’s internal temperature to your remote device. And there’s much more waiting for you in the way of interoperability.

Jenn-Air makes this oven available in three configurations:

  • Euro-Style stainless steel with sleek modern handles (below).
  • Pro-Style with more of a restaurant, commercial look.
  • Black Floating Glass with black glass fronts.
Jenn-Air Double Oven

The oven line includes a single wall oven, a double oven (above), and a combo version with oven on the bottom and microwave on the top.

The new Jenn-Air ovens are scheduled to hit the market in September. Check with your account manager or design consultant for updates and more details.

Trends in Professional Style Appliances

Pro-Style Ranges in Standard Kitchens

Professional style ranges have been showing up in standard kitchens for several years now. Certainly, we’ve seen brands such as GE Café give a “pro” look to standard appliances with great success. But more than that, consumers are willing to jump ship when it comes to their standard range, opting for one of the high-end professional style brands for the added cooking power as well as the pro-look. Buyers seem to be not at all concerned with having matching appliances either by brand or style, and they don’t hesitate sticking a bulky pro-style range in with any overall kitchen style. In addition, they’re often unconcerned that the pro-style range will cost more than all of the rest of their standard appliances combined.

Builders, contractors, designers, and remodelers can be challenged with a non-standard depth, special ventilation needs, and other custom changes that might be required. Nevertheless, these pro-style non-standard ranges are in enough demand that the industry is adapting to buyers requests.

The good news is that trade professionals, can rely on Arizona Wholesale Supply to guide them through the maze of pro-range choices. Here are two examples of luxury brands that specialize in ranges with a professional look and features.

Thermador-Range

Thermador’s new Pro Harmony 30″ range above is touted as the only 5-burner 30″ Pro-Style range in the luxury category. This range is likely to cost $4000 – $5000 when it debuts later this year.

Italian manufacturer Bertazzoni below is making a mark with their 30″ Pro-Style range that retails for as low as $2599. That’s a very competitive price for a range in this category. Bertazzoni is also known for offering their ranges in a choice of brilliant colors in addition to the common stainless steel finish.

Bertazzoni-Range

Designers, builders, contractors, and remodelers wishing to explore opportunities in the pro-style range category are welcome to consult with the professionals at Arizona Wholesale Supply for more detailed information.

Appliances that match your cabinets

Integrated Appliances at Arizona Wholesale Supply

What are Integrated Appliances?

Sub Zero Pro Grand

When speaking about appliances at design community events, I always make a point to distinguish between appliances that are meant to stand out versus appliances that are designed to fit in. Sub-Zero’s Pro Grand Refrigerator above is a perfect example of an appliance designed to stand out. Customers proudly show this giant refrigerator as a centerpiece in their kitchen. At the other end of the spectrum are fully-integrated appliances such as the refrigerator/freezer below.

Fully integrated refrigerator 2

I took these two photos at the recent Kitchen and Bath International Show (KBIS 2015) in Las Vegas. In the first photo, you cannot tell that this is a refrigerator. In the integrated refrigerator category, there are significant differences among what is considered fully-integrated and partially-integrated.

Fully-Integrated Appliances

If you’ve ever seen a kitchen such as in the photo above, where appliances such as refrigerator, dishwasher, icemaker, etc. were fitted with cabinet panels and installed so that they could not be distinguished from the surrounding cabinets, they are fully-integrated appliances.

There would be no hinges, no toe-kick, nor any grill showing on the refrigerator exterior. Similarly, there would be no visible toe-kick, nor visible controls on the dishwasher, etc. Of course, all the appliances need to have a narrow depth (24″) so that when installed with a cabinet panel they would be flush with the adjacent cabinet panel. The appliance handles (pulls) would match the cabinet hardware.

Partially-Integrated Appliances

Appliances that do not meet all these strict requirements, yet still have matching cabinet faces are partially-integrated. A refrigerator’s hinges might show; perhaps even a grill to allow air movement. Dishwasher controls, or toe plates might be visible. Of course, there are even some standard refrigerators that are built to accommodate cabinet panels, such as the KitchenAid counter-depth refrigerator below.

partially integrated refrigerator

As you can see, there are considerable variations from a pure fully-integrated built-in appliance to a standard full-depth appliance. To make sure that you get the exact appliance you need for your new kitchen, consult the professionals at Arizona Wholesale Supply. It’s always important to coordinate with designers, contractors, etc. when doing a new kitchen, but it’s especially important if your planning to have fully-integrated appliances.
