Luxury appliance brand Signature Kitchen Suite has broadened its portfolio of cooking products with the introduction of new cooktops and wall ovens.
The new products include products with sous vide technology, induction, and a microwave oven drawer that will be available later in summer 2020.
"Signature Kitchen Suite embraces the idea that better cooking is possible through better thinking, and nowhere is this more evident than in our 2020 culinary portfolio, where our appliances incorporate purposeful design and professional-grade features to help elevate the functionality of today's home kitchen," says Zach Elkin, general manager for Signature Kitchen Suite. "With our full line of luxury, built-in appliances you'll find the perfect blend of innovation, precision and purposeful design for every kitchen, and every appetite."
The company says the impetus for many of its new products is based on a survey data from Research Institute for Cooking & Kitchen Intelligence indicating that kitchen designers have seen increased demand for dual-fuel appliances in the past year, and that convection, steam and induction cooking are on the rise. Signature Kitchen Suite says the new culinary advancements address these evolving needs and cater to today's forward-thinking Technicurean home chefs.
The brand has quickly become known for delivering precision and high performance with each of its offerings including the widely celebrated 48-inch dual fuel pro range with sous vide and induction modalities, an industry-first innovation bringing restaurant-quality cooking into homes. Each of the new Wi-Fi enabled smart appliances is powered by ThinQ technology.
Here are highlights from the new collection:
The brand’s new new pro rangetops include a 36- and 48-inch model and are the industry's first dual-fuel cooktops with built-in sous vide, the company says. “Sous vide allows for precise temperature control within one-degree of setpoint—without the need for a circulator—thanks to a hermetically and magnetically sealed lid,” the company says. “This means at-home chefs can count on professional-style results every time, capturing the full, true flavor of foods while retaining vitamins and nutrients.”
Each rangetop offers high-out gas burners—23K BTUs for the 48-inch model and 18K BTUs for the 36-inch version. In addition, each has Ultra-Low Burners that simmer down to maintain temperatures as low as 100 degrees for delicate sauces and sugary confections. The two-zone induction area can also be used for a teppanyaki plate or larger cookware.
Built-In Wall Ovens
The collection also includes new Single and Double Wall Ovens with Steam Sous Vide combined. They offer a convection system that cooks food quickly and evenly, the brand says, while the steam helps to preserve texture, appearance and taste. “Also new is the steam sous vide cooking mode which allows users to enjoy sous vide results right in the oven without the need for preheating,” the brand says in a release announcing the new products. “Home chefs can achieve delicious results that are moist and tender on the inside, crisp and flaky on the outside, all with minimal effort.” A SpeedClean function will clean a lightly-soiled oven with a 10-minute cycle, using only water.
Flex Induction Cooktop
Available in August 2020, the 36-inch induction cooktop features the most powerful center burner available with 7,000 watts of power, the company says. It also has a 12-inch dual center element that can boil a quart of water in about a minute.
“From a small pan to a large griddle, each Flex Cooking Zone combines elements to easily accommodate different sizes and shapes of cookware,” Signature Kitchen Suite says. “With four inductors, each zone can provide up to 3,700 watts of power. When combined with a Signature Kitchen Suite pro-style hood, the innovative Wi-Fi feature lets the cooktop and hood communicate with each other, so the elements and fans are synchronized.”
Signature Kitchen Suite says it designed the new 1.2-cubic-foot Microwave Oven Drawer to provide plenty of room to heat large items such as casserole dishes and dinner platters. The built-in design allows homeowners to utilize more counter space. “Its Easy Touch automatic drawer system allows users to open the microwave with a gentle pull or the touch of a button and shuts smoothly with a small nudge,” the company says. “The even gliding action and solid construction help prevent liquids from spilling during opening and closing. An elegant design with sleek glass touch controls completes the look.”
The microwave oven will be available in July 2020.
