Large-Capacity Washer / Whirlpool
The MHW4300DC 27-inch 4.2-cubic-foot-capacity front-load washer in Maytag’s Maxima product line is designed to tackle the toughest loads of laundry. The Steam for Stains option uses additional soak time, optimal water temperature, and a boost of steam to remove stains. Other features include an Allergen Cycle.
Professional Appliances / Electrolux
Frigidaire’s Professional suite offers consumers high-quality appliances inspired by restaurant-style kitchens at an affordable price, while being compatible with standard-size appliances to fit into existing kitchens. The suite includes a free-standing range, French-door refrigerator, and a dishwasher, all with heavy-duty knobs and handles and Smudge-Proof Stainless Steel.
French-Door Double Oven / Viking
Featuring 11 modes for cooking versatility, the Viking Professional French-Door Double Oven is equipped with six porcelain-coated rack positions in the 4.7-cubic-foot oven. Backlit steel knobs, three oven racks (two ball-bearing racks in the top oven and one in the bottom), and twin 8.5-inch bidirectional convection fans come standard. The extra-large doors can easily be opened with just one hand.
Refrigeration / Thermador
Culinary Preservation Centers from Thermador take food storage flexibility and appliance personalization to new heights, offering homeowners the ability to customize their refrigeration needs. Each food storage column—refrigerator, freezer, wine, and bottom freezer—can be mixed and matched with any other column and can be selected in 18-inch, 24-inch, 30-inch, or 36-inch sizes.
Disposal / InSinkErator
Evolution Excel offers MultiGrind technology to provide three stages of grinding so users can dispose of almost any food waste from rib bones and corn cobs to potato peels without jamming or clogging. SoundSeal technology delivers ultraquiet operation and Quick Lock Sink Mount makes for easy installation.
Ventless Dryer / Whirlpool
The ventless Whirlpool HybridCare clothes dryer’s Hybrid Heat Pump technology provides the flexibility to place dryers virtually anywhere in the home, and because the dryer recycles the same air instead of constantly venting hot air outside, it uses up to 73 percent less energy, the manufacturer says.
Washer-Dryer Pair / Electrolux
Electrolux promises laundry innovation with its Perfect Steam Washer with LuxCare Wash and SmartBoost, and its 8.0-cubic-foot Perfect Steam Dryer with Instant Refresh. SmartBoost premixes water and detergent before the wash cycle; LuxCare boasts better wash actions, temperature control, and smart load sensing. The dryer’s Perfect Steam releases wrinkles and reduces static. Available in Island White or Titanium.
