Kitchenaid 'special products' extend opportunities for kitchen designers
KitchenAid boasts a wealth of 'special products' within its portfolio, to empower kitchen designers to create unique culinary spaces, specially designed around each customer. Included are a shock freezer, vacuum machine, ice maker, coffee machine, cooling and warming drawers and special columns, all designed to take inspiration in the kitchen to new heights.
Equipped with three professional functions: hard blast chilling, soft blast chilling and fast freezing, the shock freezer preserves the quality of food, maintaining its original nutrients, flavour and firmness. It allows the user to chill or freeze food in minutes, transforming water content into microcrystals, without altering its organic structure, resulting in excellent texture after defrosting.
The vacuum machine can seal liquids, raw or fresh ingredients, together with their seasonings, in pouches. With four automatic programmes, including a cycle for sous-vide cooking, it creates the ideal preservation conditions to ensure that long-lasting freshness demanded by top professional chefs.
Able to produce up to 10Kg of ice every 24 hours, with room to store up to 8Kg, the ice maker combines an elegant, durable design and professional performance to give perfectly made ice which is completely transparent and free from impurities, taste or odour.
The built-in coffee machine benefits from an elegant design and boasts 15 quality coffee levels and a steam function - perfect for frothing milk. With automatic 15 bar pump pressure, it assures the perfect café crème every time, while the automatic, seven setting, coffee grinder ensures that each cup of coffee is a delicious creation with an incomparable aroma.
Managing space in the kitchen has never been easier with the 150-litre capacity refrigerated cooling drawer. Perfect for those who need additional storage space for refrigerating fresh produce, it has a dedicated wine area, two removable vegetable containers and an egg holder.
The warming drawer ensures that food is always served on a hot plate and can even keep food warm while the consumer is busy adding finishing touches or entertaining guests.
Finally, KitchenAid has created two stylish columns to enable consumers to vertically stack their appliances in a freestanding unit to create an impressive focal feature. The Chef Touch column stacks the combination steam oven, vacuum machine and shock freezer, which together facilitate sous-vide cooking. The ovens column allows the consumer to vertically stack two different ovens and a warming drawer.
"We understand that the KitchenAid consumer is passionate about cooking, which is why KitchenAid appliances are designed to inspire the user to take their expertise and creativity in the kitchen to the next level," says Lee Collett, channel controller, KitchenAid. "Each of our special products provides its own unique benefits to a chef-inspired kitchen."
