100 Years of Innovation, and More to Come

In 1916, the American home – and kitchen – looked vastly different. It was in this year, William E. Cranston founded Thermador, the luxury appliance brand that offers real innovations for real cooks. At this year’s Architectural Digest Design Show at booth #393, the brand is celebrating its milestone 100th anniversary and showcasing innovative new products and solutions for ultimate kitchen personalization.

Thermador 60-Inch Pro Grand Steam Range Interior

In July, Thermador will continue its heritage of innovation by introducing a new category of its iconic cooking appliances: two 60” Pro Grand® Ranges that offer more ways to personalize the cooking experience than any other professional-style gas range of this size. The 60” Pro Grand® Ranges enable culinary enthusiasts to personalize the features of the range around their unique style of cooking. Each gas range is equipped with six patented Star® Burners, including four that offer the ExtraLow® simmering feature and a 22,000 BTUs Power Burner. Beyond that culinary enthusiasts may select various combinations of cooking on the surface and interior of the appliance – including the choice of two side-by-side convection ovens that offer the most oven capacity of any 60” range on the market.

Additionally, as culinary enthusiasts continue to desire an array of appliances that enable personalization in entertaining zones throughout the home, Thermador is introducing new additions to its built-in, fully customizable Freedom® Collection Culinary Preservation line: the Wine Reserve Refrigerator and Double Drawer Refrigerator. These new additions are an ideal complement to Thermador built-in refrigerators, offering more ways to create a custom culinary preservation configuration anywhere in the home.

As personalization continues to take hold, unique details, colors and materials in design continue to be incorporated into home design. This is especially true for culinary enthusiasts and ultimate entertainers, who desire a complete and effortless entertaining experience anywhere in the home. Thermador continues to be a leader in providing an amazing array of design possibilities with its Culinary Preservation Centers, and at this year’s show is showcasing inspiring ways to get creative with materials, color and textures to transform highly customized refrigeration configurations into a functional work of art for the home.
