I’ve come across so many terrific product lines over the past year and I wanted to share some favorite kitchen appliances and products of 2010 with you. From faucets to pot racks these are definite must haves in your next kitchen renovation project.
Contemporary Pot Filler
For a sleek and sophisticated look Moen’s ShowHouse Modern wall-mounted pot filler would be a great addition to any contemporary kitchen renovation. It adds a luxurious professional touch and practicality at the same time. It expands over your stove easily reaching all burners. Available in both chrome ($655),and stainless steel ($900). showhouse.moen.com
One Smart Faucet
This Talo faucet by Brizo and its optional SmartTouch system changes the way we operate in the kitchen. Just tap any part of the faucet to turn the water on and off. When on, an LED light indicates the SmartTouch system is activated and when tapped off the light turns off. This faucet is available in chrome ($570), Venetian bronze, brushed bronze and stainless. brizo.com
Dish Drawer Perfection
I’m in love with Fisher & Paykel’s dish drawers. But it gets even better with their new energy-efficient 36″ Single DishDrawer. It is almost an extra foot wider than their previous drawer-model. The “DishDrawer Wide” is spacious enough for 9 place settings can easily accommodate larger pots as well. Perfect when installed under the counter, within a built –in wall unit or can be seamlessly integrated with cabinetry. Available in stainless steel ($1,200) or customized panel-ready. fisherpaykel.com
For the serious gourmet cook and entertainer who can’t do without the crème de la crème comes the first full-scale gas vertical roasting spit or built-in rotisserie. I’m in love with this! La Cornue, the legendary French Company takes holiday entertaining to an entirely new level with the Flamberge built-in rotisserie. Roast up to 4 chickens at a time and make your kitchen the hottest new restaurant in town. Available in 20 porcelain-enamel colors and 5 trim options. ($11,000) purcellmurray.com
All-Clad’s Pot Rack
Finally a pot rack with the strength and durability of All-Clad! Constructed of solid stainless like all their products, this rack measures 36″x 22″and is fabricated in a polished mirrored finish. The MagnaTrack technology system keeps the 12 magnetic hooks in place when the pots are removed eliminating the frustration of the old flexible hooking system. The best part is it holds up to 300 lbs. of cookware. ($600) surlatable.com
So if you’re planning to update your kitchen in 2011 keep some of these spectacular products in mind to give you the working kitchen that you’ve always dreamed of.
I also wanted to take this time to wish you and your family a very Happy Holiday Season and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year! So enjoy your holiday celebrations and time spent with family and friends – and gear up for a great and exciting 2011.
