Kitchen Major Appliance Must-Haves

Kitchen appliances have become an integral part of the look of your kitchen. For a clean contemporary look, there are three must-haves for your new kitchen. Here are the latest kitchen appliances trends.

Microwave Drawer

Sharp® has developed an innovative way to free-up countertop space. Until recently the only alternative to having your microwave on your counter is to have it installed above the counter; either on a shelf, or as a microwave/range hood combination. Since reaching above the range hood is not practical for many, Sharp® developed another idea; the Microwave DrawerTM.

This state-of-art appliance features a concealed console behind the drawer. This drawer moves slowly to ensure the contents in the microwave are not spilled. It opens with the wave of a hand, and closes with a gentle nudge.

It is even available in a darker colour to compliment other appliances such as the fridge shown below.

Panel Ready Dishwashers

One of the best kitchen appliances trends is the panel ready dishwasher. A panel ready dishwasher will allow you to mount a cabinet door panel to the front of the dishwasher. This will provide a seamless look to your kitchen cabinets.

In keeping with the concealed console trend, many new dishwashers only have the controls visible when you open the door. The console is usually located on the top of the door.

Bosch® dishwashers have become popular as the offer features such as 15 place settings, 6 wash cycles, and even half-load settings. This brand also has the reputation of being the quietest dishwashers in the marketplace.

Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel

Thinking of buying stainless steel appliances, but are worried you will be wiping off fingerprints all the time? Here are a couple of solutions.

The first option is another one of the amazing kitchen appliances trends, and it is offered by Maytag® and Fridgidaire®. These manufacturers have fingerprint resistant stainless steel surfaces for their appliances.

Another option is more of a matte finish such as GE ® ‘s Slate line (shown left), or Samsung’s ® Black Stainless steel. These colours will either compliment darker cabinet colours, or provide a eye-catching contrast to lighter cabinet panel colours.
