A Review of the Best New, Coolest and Unusual Appliances of 2012

Hard to believe, it's the end of another year. As I reflect on this year, there were great new introductions. However, there was not a great quantity. In fact, I could only find 8.

Well, at least the article will be easy to write...

Best New Appliances of 2012

8) American Range

I like the idea of a french door double oven. You do not have to lift a heavy turkey over the door itself...

7) Kalamazoo K100HB

Best grill ever. If you really like to grill, Kalamazoo can do it all: 100,000 BTUs of custom American engineering. It is also hybrid with wood, charcoal and gas, so it combines speed of gas with the flavor of wood and charcoal.

6) AGA Total Control

Beautiful cooking product at a desirable 30 inch size. Unit is electric and still offers their unique natural convection cooking system.

Note: We currently do not have AGA on display in our showrooms.

5) Jenn-Air JEI0536ADS

Induction for $799. Induction is the best cooking product: Fast, child-safe and efficient. This is the least expensive without compromising performance.

4) Thermador Pro Steam

Let's look at 48 inch pro ovens, 6 burner, 2 convection ovens, self-cleaning in both. Pick a brand. It's the same. Until now. Thermador offers a steam oven and a warming drawer. Hopefully, other sizes and brands will react accordingly.

3) Yale Hood RH00830AS

Hoods haven't been updated or improved in years. Someone had to build an affordable, attractive and powerful hood...may as well be us.
