After the breakfast at the Poggenpohl showroom in the beginning of #BlogTourNYC we were able to make our way through the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, Jenn-Air, another sponsor of the tour had a huge presence at the show.
I spent some time in the Jenn-Air booth looking at the variety of top-of-the-line appliances on display, which included some beautiful wall ovens and a stunning, slightly arced stainless steel downdraft hood that retracted back into the countertop when not being used.
The Jenn-Air Accolade downdraft vent combines exquisite style and innovation. It is constructed of glass and stainless steel, and when operational, the glass panel washes LED lighting over the cooking surface. The hidden controls help contribute to its sleek and modern design.
Seeing all these luxury Jenn-Air appliances took me back to my childhood for a moment, remembering when my parents remodeled the kitchen of our home back in the mid-70′s. As a part of the renovation, they installed the Jenn-Air indoor barbecue. Not the most popular appliance to add into a kitchen then, but growing up in Winnipeg Canada where the sub zero temperatures would plummet to 40 degrees below zero on any winter day, I guess you could say that barbecuing indoors was a way for us to extend our very short summer season – or so we believed.
Well Jenn-Air has come a long way since then.
They displayed several luxury specialty appliances at the show, including a wine cooler and their new built-in coffee maker. Incorporating a few of these innovative appliances into your kitchen renovation will set your kitchen apart from the rest…just like the barbecue my parents installed into our family kitchen just a few years ago. .
Jenn-Air is a highly respected company for luxury appliances and their products have been featured in many prominent kitchen designs, including the House Beautiful kitchen I mentioned in my last post. At the show, they not only had their booth, they also showcased their appliances Jenn-Air Master Class Culinary stage, where they sponsored a series of Master Class Studio seminars. All told, it was an incredible experience to see the new products and innovations coming from Jenn-Air!
