Check out these appliances from Viking, Bosch and more

November 01, 2007

Viking 

The masters of stainless steel at Viking have a hybrid oven to show off: the Built-in Electric Combi Steam/Convect Oven — say that five times fast. The unit sports six cooking options: steam, SteamHeat, TruSteam, ReHeat Plus, ProBake and TruConvec. A multi-lingual interface and 27-, 30-, and 36-inch trim kits round out the new features.

Gaggenau

If you're building for a serious chef, consider Gaggenau's smart 36-inch wide CI 491/492 Induction cooktop. It accommodates large pots and pans and provides an extraordinary amount of cooking power. A sweet feature is the maneuverable magnetic knob, which sets cooking zones and temperature. Gaggenau also has a line of equally snazzy wine storage units and ovens.

Dacor
 

Sometimes the hardest part about buying or specifying appliances is figuring out where the heck you're gonna put 'em. Dacor addresses this problem with its stainless steel Millennia Microwave In-A-Drawer. Billed as a chic alternative to countertop units, it has a novel drawer configuration that increases installation flexibility. Homeowners steering away from stainless can opt for a solid black glass finish. For FREE information, visit http://pb.ims.ca/5339-133

Ariston

Italy's Ariston scores big aesthetic points with the Platinum Series Laundry. The series features the market's largest condenser dryer (16 pounds) that uses a ventless system to eliminate ductwork. The roomy washer spins 1400 rpm for better water extraction, and you can also order 14-inch-tall pedestal drawers. For FREE information, visit http://pb.ims.ca/5339-134

Bosch
 

Someone spent a long time on the drawing board with this one. Bosch's Evolution 700 Series Dual Fuel has the company's Cleartouch oven controls and a European-inspired convection system for master bakers. The easy-to-clean range has two powers and two simmer burners with eight cooking modes. A convection-assisted self-cleaning mode will keep chefs happy, too.

Wolf

Looking like something out of a catering company's kitchen, the E Series oven line from Wolf comes in single and double 30-inch models with an intuitive LCD control panel and 10 different cooking modes, including bake stone, convection roast and dehydration. The E series has a redesigned hinge system on the door and still has the company's distinctive look. For FREE information, visit http://pb.ims.ca/5339-138

Liebherr
 

Straight from Deutschland comes the HC1050 refrigerator from Liebherr. The unit has two separate cooling units that function independently of each other to guarantee temperatures stay where homeowners want. The unit's big advantage lies in its adjustable shelving options. Its satin exterior has a different look compared to its contemporaries to please discerning homeowners.

Diva de Provence

We normally wouldn't associate the word diva with beefiness, but the Diva 365 from Diva de Provence is a full-on force to be reckoned with. The 36-inch range combines an all-electric convection oven with a five-burner induction cooktop. The company claims its temperature control provides some of the fastest, most energy-efficient cooking around. Test it out. For FREE information, visit http://pb.ims.ca/5339-139
