Battle of the Brands: Top Appliances in the Kitchen

By
Home Builder with Javic Homes

Even for those of us who are highly brand loyal, it can be overwhelming when making a selection on kitchen appliances for your home. We desire products that are innovative, efficient, long-lasting and compatible with our kitchen’s design elements. The following brands will suit your home perfectly, providing you with the best balance of performance and value.

When it comes to refrigerators and freezers, Sub-Zero is a renowned favorite. Although their appearance is often contemporary in design and style, they are well-equipped for optimum food preservation. Sub-Zero’s refrigeration is recognized for its dual refrigeration technology and sleek glass door model. Their wine storage coolers and under-counter refrigerators are also quite popular. General Electric is another brand favorite found in the kitchen, preferably Monogram and Cafe. Their new fully integrated (and customizable) refrigerators and dishwashers are already best sellers. GE’s stainless steel warming drawer and bar refrigerator (with ice maker) are other great kitchen additions. Much like GE’s product-line, Frigidaire also offers high-quality appliances, ranging from smart technology refrigerators to double oven ranges.

Wolf (Sub-zero’s cooking counterpart) is a top choice for ovens, ranges and cooktops. Wolf’s induction cooktops are a great choice for conserving energy, using electric-magnetic fields for heating. Their new convection steam oven has also become a big hit, making meal preparation easier, healthier and more accurate. The Viking brand is well-known for their high-end ovens, ranges and ventilation systems. They offer a wide variety of styles and designs, including wall, chimney and island hoods, as well as rear down drafts and custom ventilation systems. Viking’s inventive trash compactor is another convenient kitchen appliance.

Fisher Paykel’s uniquely designed dish drawer takes “washing the dishes” to a whole new level; featuring single touch programming, flood prevention, adjustable racks and higher drawers for loading and unloading dishes. Their multiple temperature control cooling drawer is another product that no kitchen should be without.

The Delta Touch2O faucet allows you to “tap” your kitchen’s water source on or off, making kitchen clean-up a breeze. No more soiled hands making bigger messes; this high-tech faucet also features a multi-flow spray system which conserves water and cuts down on germs and kitchen clean-up.

One of the many benefits of building a custom kitchen is that you not only get to design your own layout, color patterns and finishes, but you also get to choose your appliances. As a Tampa custom home builder, Javic Homes works with you to select high-quality appliances while still ensuring pricing that matches your budget. New homes are built with many of the above brands, as well as many other amenities found outside of the kitchen.
