Powerful Kitchen Appliances That Actually Look Good, Too

The workhorses of your home, these appliances are practical, powerful and oh-so stylish.

Your stove, dishwasher, hood fan and fridge: these are the heavy lifters in the kitchen. But there’s no reason they shouldn’t look good while they do it. Some of the best new appliances for 2016 bring high-end form to everyday function.

Fresh Start

DESIGNER PICK The new Vitamix 780 ($850) has the same legendary high-performance blending power, but now with a streamlined touch screen and automatic shut-off. 

“I love my Vitamix—it literally does everything from soup to nuts. My mornings usually start with a three-mile walk and a smoothie that I take with me to the office (where we also have a Vitamix for healthy lunches and snacks). And when I design kitchens for clients, I take the opportunity to create a special place for awkward appliances like the Vitamix.” — Lynn Donaldson, Calgary-based designer and principal of Lynn Donaldson and Associates
