7 Supermodel Appliances We Love

There’s a certain sleek, catwalk-worthy style to the latest appliances.

1. All In

Bosch’s new Home Connect 800 series brings together all the key kitchen elements, including its signature built-in stainless steel coffee system ($4,000). Skinny lattes, frothy cappuccinos or restrained ristrettos can all be brewed from a touch screen—anywhere in the home.

2. Hot Stuff

Part of a new collection from Jenn-Air, this induction wok module cooktop ($3,299) has a flush-to-counter concave design that cradles a round-bottomed wok. With 3,600-watts of high-tech induction power, it’s like that singular accessory that adds oomph to a tailored outfit.

3. Fresh Faced

There’s a new look for one of the classics. The 36-inch Wolf contemporary gas cooktop ($3,999) sits flush to the countertop with control knobs that mount on the cabinet panel you choose, and there are seamless porcelain coated cast-iron grates that let you slide pots and pans to and fro. Of course, those iconic red knobs are always an option.

4. Under Wraps

KitchenAid’s fully integrated dishwasher with “pocket handle” ($1,699) takes on whatever style you want. The black stainless steel (smudge-proof) finish and minimalist design blend in with barely a whisper (it’s also one of the quietest models at 39 decibels)—but if you want a closer look, a front display panel reveals its hidden underpinnings and controls.

5. New Modern

The pro dual-fuel steam range ($20,785), a showstopper in Dacor’s new Modernist collection, melds high function with haute form. It’s a choreography among wifi-enabled touchscreen tech (the panel tilts out and knobs illuminate), big flexing BTUs, and graphite-stainless steel gleam (with stainless steel insides that match in lustre).

6. Ice, Ice, Baby

For bartenders in the know, the right ice can make or break a drink. Now Dacor’s column freezer ($10,960) brings that crafty cocktail ice home. Its dual icemaker provides an always-ready supply of larger, clearer ice (minimal dilution and maximal “cool” factor), as well as standard-sized chunks.

Designer’s Pick by Nyla Free

“With the largest fully usable cooking surface, Thermador’s Masterpiece series Freedom induction cooktop is my go-to suggestion to clients looking for high performance, precision and power. I love its minimal design and touch controls. It’s smart, too! If you need to move a pot to another area of the cooktop, it will transfer the programmed settings to the new position of the pan.”
