Latest Trends in Kitchen Appliances

Whether you need to replace your outdated kitchen appliances or you're looking to purchase them for the first time, you'll want to check out the latest efficient and professionally designed appliances. From technology to design, manufacturers continue to add a wide variety of features to their newest kitchen appliances to satisfy the cravings and needs of today's savvy home consumer.

Appliances that combine technology, ergonomics and stylish design continue to top the must-have list. Bisque, white or black appliances are still popular, but a professional-styled kitchen full of stainless steel still leads the charge. Retro-styled appliances are also becoming popular among consumers looking to make a bold statement by choosing colors and finishes to reflect their personal tastes. Also look for integrated appliances that can be built right into your kitchen design or camouflaged with cabinet panels.

A professional kitchen by Viking® allows you to customize and configure your appliances. Their latest freestanding ranges allow you to select the color, size, fuel types and burner configuration to create a truly unique cooking experience.

Space-saving and energy efficiency remain top concerns for consumers, especially with the high cost in gas and electricity and the trend to build smaller homes. Shallow depth appliances like refrigerators and ranges are popular because they offer a clean look and take up less space without sacrificing capacity.

Washing dishes has gotten a lot more convenient and quieter thanks to innovative new technology featuring intuitive controls that leave dishes sparkling and conserve water and electricity.

You'll find most modern kitchens incorporate a cooktop featuring the latest induction technology, which offers faster heating times and uses less energy than electric or gas cooktops. The ceramic glass surface makes it easy to clean and stays cooler to the touch. Another popular add-on is the convection microwave, which allows you to cook smaller portions without sacrificing crispness or juiciness.

Look for refrigerators with door and temperature alarms, digital readouts and multiple sensor controls as well as more sophisticated insulation systems, which will help minimize energy loss and improve overall performance.

Eco-friendly kitchen appliances can provide you with plenty of ways to help save you money and energy. The latest ENERGY STAR® rated refrigerators are designed to run on constant and low speed without sacrificing performance. Also look for eco-friendly dishwashers that are built with 90-100% recyclable parts and have water-saving features.
