When I look at 7 years of the Yale Blog, I look at the reliability ratings, the product comparisons and the commentary on new trends in our industry. I thought I would write an article on the niceties or the non crucial, yet enjoyable products.

As we have arisen (somewhat) out of the recession, you have seen more innovative products like speed ovens, microwave drawers and even Pandora playing wall ovens. Companies like Bosch Benchmark, GE, Wolf and Sub-Zero have focused on building their products better.

The following companies have created new categories of very different products. After you have finished designing your kitchen with appliances and lighting. Have a look at a few very different items, like Wine Dispensers, Humidors and Coffee Systems.

Dacor Wine Station

Dacor Discovery WineStation® DYWS4 - $5,299

dacor-wine-station

The Discovery WineStation® is the first automated, temperature controlled, four-bottle wine dispensing and preservation system for the home. You can choose the right wine and just the right amount  a taste, a half glass or a full glass with the touch of a finger. I love this in a kitchen or a wine room.

Discovery WineStation® maintains the freshness of your favorite wine selections for up to 60 days without the loss of flavor or natural aroma.

This product is great for entertaining and gives you the ability to keep your wine fresh if you don’t drink the full bottle. The built in look is a perfect match to install over a 24” wine cooler. This is a great addition to a bar or kitchen.

Liebherr Humidor

XS200 - $2,599

liebherr-humindor

Liebherr is a popular European fridge company, but besides fridges they make an amazing little built in humidor. For all of you cigar lovers out there, this is a great way to show off your stogie collection, not to mention keeping them fresh.

You also keep them out of your refrigerators, so the odors will not cross contaminate the other items in your refrigerator (cigar owners know what I mean).

This model has LED lighting, Spanish cedar wood shelve, Digital temperature and humidity displays.

Liebherr Wine Storage Cabinet

WS1200 - $1,829

Liebherr-Wine-Storage-Cabinet

Like the Humidor above, this little gem fits in a small wall cabinet or freestanding. Most people don’t have the need or space for a 46 bottle under counter wine unit. I have one and at the most I’ve stored 8 wines it.  

This is good for storing wines at a drinking temperature, so they are ready for the weekly dinner party or after a long day at work.

With UV protected glass door, 3 Wooden Grid Shelves, LED Lights and Touch Control System with Digital Temperature Display, you can be assured your wine will taste as intended.

Miele Plumbed Built-in Coffee System

CVA 6805 - $3,699

miele-builtin-coffee-system

The plumbed Miele coffee system has been a popular built-in for many years due to it’s elegant integrated look, plus it makes an amazing cup of coffee.

This particular model can be plumbed in from a filtered waterline. With a bean grinder and whole bean container built in, you can make multiple cups of coffee or lattes on the fly without any extra work.

Speaking of lattes, there is a built in milk reservoir for instant milk and froth. If you’re into the flavored coffee beans,Miele has a container for pre-ground coffee that you can use at the push of a button.

Key Takeaways 

As I said before none of these products are really necessary, but they make life a bit more enjoyable. It is a good consideration for people who enjoy really good coffee, wine and need a place to properly store cigars without offending the other members of your family.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
