It’s no secret that the kitchen is the main place for family gatherings, dining and socializing, so it’s no wonder that the “heart of the home” is a style focal point for most home owners. One growing trend: Luxurious appliances with smart, intuitive technology.
NAHB estimates that almost 60% of builders are working on luxury high-end projects this year. For new luxury built-in kitchen appliance brand Signature Kitchen Suite –- backed by home appliance innovator LG Electronics –- delivering performance, design and precision is paramount.
“We believe better cooking is possible through better thinking,” said Zach Elkin, general manager at Signature Kitchen Suite and LG for Builders. “Our portfolio of products aims to do just that and is designed for a new group of consumers we’re calling the TechnicureanTM audience. These are forward-thinking home chefs who are passionate about cooking and appreciate technological innovations that help make their lives easier and more convenient.”
Take for instance the first-of-its-kind 48-inch Dual Fuel Pro Range, which was brilliantly engineered with built-in sous vide, induction and gas modalities, all on the cooktop. Once limited to the pros, sous vide is a cooking technique that allows home chefs to achieve professional-level results by utilizing precise temperature control to capture the full, true flavor of foods. It’s also Wi-Fi enabled, so with the touch of a button on the Signature Kitchen Suite app, users can enjoy the benefits of smart functionality like preheating the oven remotely.
Integrated column refrigeration is also a growing trend among this group. Signature Kitchen Suite offers a variety of refrigerator/freezer options to help fit any footprint, making it ideal for new construction and replacement options. The newest is the 24-inch Integrated Column Refrigerator, which features TrueFitTM integrated design flexibility that allows for proud or flush installation and easy door reversal, along with an impressive 13.9 cubic feet of storage capacity –- the largest in the industry. Ingenious features like an engineered all-metal interior help minimize temperature fluctuations to within one degree, helping to keep food fresh for as long as possible, and LED lighting keeps the focus on the food.
Well-equipped to fulfill the needs of any Technicurean, Signature Kitchen Suite’s range of smart appliances is garnering attention from critics and consumers alike, capturing coveted industry accolades like the 2018 Kitchen Product of the Year for its sous vide range by Kitchen & Bath Business. Other key products of interest to this audience include smart lighting, premium finishes and storage solutions that declutter.
