Signature Kitchen Suite is debuting a broadened portfolio of culinary innovations that will join the brand’s line of luxury, built-in appliances. The expanded collection includes new pro rangetops and wall ovens beginning to launch just now, and featuring an innovation the brand is known for – sous vide technology – along with a new induction cooktop and microwave oven drawer available later this summer.
Signature Kitchen Suite research reveals 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. Under Signature Kitchen Suite’s “True to Food” mission, the new culinary advancements address these evolving needs, according to the company.
In pro rangetops, 36- and 48-Inch models are the industry’s first dual-fuel cooktops with built-in sous vide cooking capability (see image above). 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. This cooking style yields results that capture the full, true flavor of foods while retaining vitamins and nutrients.
The pro rangetops’ Ultra-High Burners provide gas cooking functionality for better searing and quick stir-frying – 23K BTUs for the 48-inch model and 18K BTU output for the 36-inch rangetop. The Ultra-Low Burners simmer down to maintain temperatures as low as 100 degrees to prepare delicate sauces and sugary confections. The two-zone induction area can also be used for a teppanyaki plate or larger cookware.
Signature Kitchen Suite’s new built-in single and double wall ovens with a Steam Sous Vide cooking mode combine the ultimate cooking modalities for gourmet results, allowing users to achieve sous vide results right in the oven without the need for preheating, for meals that are moist and tender on the inside, crisp and flaky on the outside – and all with minimal effort. A SpeedClean function makes fast work of cleaning a lightly soiled oven with just a 10-minute cycle, using only water.
The new “Flex” 36-inch Induction Cooktop (August availability) features a center burner with 7,000 watts of power and 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 accommodate different sizes and shapes of cookware. 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 Wi-Fi feature lets the cooktop and hood communicate with each other, so the elements and fans are synchronized.
The new Signature Kitchen Suite Microwave Oven Drawer (July availability) is designed to provide room to heat large items like casserole dishes and dinner platters. Since the microwave is built-in, at-home chefs can free up more counter space to prepare their meal. The Easy Touch automatic drawer system allows users to open the microwave with a gentle pull or the touch of a button and it shuts smoothly with a small nudge. 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.
“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,” said 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.”
