Smart Appliances for 2017

Have internet appliances finally arrived?

Smart Refrigerator from Samsung

In 2000 at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show), LG Electronics introduced the first internet-enabled refrigerator. The refrigerator had a color TV screen on the outside along with many hi-tech features, and a price tag around $20K. About the same time Electrolux launched the ScreenFridge. In 2006, Electrolux tried again with a more deluxe version, and in 2007 Whirlpool showed a new CentralPark Connection, a data hub and entertainment center that plugs into the refrigeration. While none of these were successful, appliance manufacturers have not given up, and the new improved versions show a lot of promise, and a much lower price. Here's one model from Samsung that appears to be gaining steam.

New Appliances from Jenn-Air

New Jenn-Air Induction Downdraft Cooktop

New Jenn-Air Cooktop Coming to Arizona Wholesale Supply

The industry's first downdraft induction cooktop will be shipping from Jenn-Air later this year. Equipped with powerful induction elements, and the legendary Jenn-Air center downdraft system, this innovative cooktop builds on Jenn-Air's cooking legacy.

A pioneer in induction cooking, Jenn-Air, had an induction cartridge for its modular downdraft cooktop back in the '80's, and later a hybrid four element glass cooktop with two induction elements and two radiant elements.

Jenn-Air's all new 36″ downdraft induction cooktop offers all the benefits of twenty-first century induction technology combined with the advantages of proximity downdraft ventilation. It's literally two appliances in one.

Jenn-Air-Cooktop

With no overhead vent hood, sight lines are open, smoke and odors are captured at the source, and island installation is straightfoward. For those, who don't have the option of venting an island cooktop through the floor, Jenn-Air offers a duct-free kit as an option. Duct-free downdraft can be a real life saver and open up more possibilities for kitchen design.

Jenn-Air's new induction downdraft cooktop has a powerful center vent rated at 350 CFM, perfect for a vent system that captures smoke and odor at the source before it escapes into the room.

The flexible induction cooking areas on each side are controlled by an electronic touchpad, and have built-in sensors that detect pans and will not operate absent a correctly sized pan. The cooktop can accommodate up to six pans as well as oblong pans, griddles, or Dutch ovens. When selected, a Performance Boost setting will provide a brief (up to 10 minutes) boost of power higher than the maximum setting.

For more information on this Jenn-Air cooktop or other appliances contact your designer or builder, and make an appointment with one of the consultants at Arizona Wholesale Supply today.
