We love doing kitchen design here at Design with Distinction. The products are ever changing which keeps us on our toes! Today's kitchens operate as command central for all of us and the current crop of innovative products is helping us manage our busy lives. Let's explore!
I actually have this gorgeous free standing range at my summer home. Made in the USA by Heartland - it's a conversation piece that everyone adores. So many of our friends tell us that when they were growing up their grandparents had a similar style (which at that time was wood burning)! This style is perfect for a cabin, a home with a rustic interior or a home with a country french feel.
The cooktop boasts high performance ribbon burners to maximize boiling performance from 2,500W down to an ideal low simmer. Even heat distribution ensures uniform cooking. And for cooks who like clean up to be as easy as the meal, the smooth surface is easy to wipe and the recessed cooking surface helps to control messy spills. The only thing lacking is the size of the oven. Also the broiler is very small (it's the space on the top left side of the front of the range).
Colored Appliances are becoming very popular! They add some fun to the kitchen plus they have all the operational bells and whistles. This beauty is from Blue Star Cooking's "Precious Metals Collection". The range has a contemporary, urban aesthetic with the rounded plate rail and body sides, combined with slim, comfortable handles which give it a sleek, modern look and feel.
Another made in the USA product handcrafted in Reading, Pennsylvania, BlueStar cooking products are designed for discerning home chefs who demand restaurant-quality results in their own kitchens. Their commitment to precision in form and function is why many top chefs consider BlueStar to be the world's top-performing residential cooking equipment.
Built with the highest-quality materials and distinctive workmanship that comes from 130 years expertise, BlueStar turns up the heat on home cooking with a fully customizable line to suit the specific cooking needs of the accomplished home chef. Available in a painter's palette of colors, and with near infinite configuration possibilities, BlueStar premium cooking products deliver restaurant magic to the home kitchen.

For those of you who prefer a contemporary look this GE Monogram french door wall oven features connected technology and true european convection cooking. A really cool feature for you tech wizards is WiFi Connect which allows you to control oven fuctions from anywhere inside or even outside your home, using your smartphone or other web-enabled mobile device. This isn't your Grandma's oven!
Beverage centers are a must for both families and wine connoisseurs.
The exceptional craftsmanship of True Residential is evident in the precise attention to detail and styling of the True Beverage Center. With True's exclusive balanced refrigeration system, you can set the temperature as low as 33°F, keeping your drinks icy cold. This exclusive technology also enables rapid cooldown of beverages and maintains them at the perfect temperature so they're ready when you are.
At True, there’s something almost magical about the number 45. Besides being an ideal storage temperature for many wines, it’s also the number of wine bottles that the 24” wine cabinets can preserve. And beer! 45 is the ideal storage and serving temperature for some of our favorite American dark lagers, classic German pilsners, and Belgian whites. At Design with Distinction we've had great success with this wonderful company!
Want the televison on while you're in the kitchen? No problem!
Media refrigerators with built-in LCD screens are the latest trend in hi-tech kitchen appliances and there are few models on the market today, notably LG TV refrigerator and Siemens CoolMedia fridge freezer. The Electrolux Screen Fridge has even more features and the highest price in the segment. The Screen Fridge is connected to broadband and TV via wireless connection. 15" touch screen and pop-up keyboard. As if Internet, email, phone, radio and MP3 player are not enough, Electrolux adds highly advanced calendar and video messaging system so the kitchen truly becomes the center hub in your house. Before you leave for work, you can check weather and traffic conditions, business appointments with Screen Fridge personal organizer, and print out your easily up-datable electronic shopping list. WOW!
