Experiencing A Professional Appliance Demo Dinner
Now that Covid is more manageable one of the best parts of shopping for high end professional appliances has returned, namely appliance demonstration dinners.
Once a month, most major high end appliance manufacturers hold free cooking demonstrations to showcase their products. The evenings include wine, hors d’oeuvres, and often a six or seven course meal. The evening includes watching Master Chefs like Sub-Zero Mid-Atlantic’s resident chef Robert Kristoff prepare food using the latest, state of the art cooking innovations.
These demonstrations are held in design centers so there is no pressure from salespeople – appliances actually aren’t even sold at these locations.
Philadelphia has a great history for these demonstrations and tastings. For example, in the past you might have seen legendary chefs like George Perrier, formerly of Le Bec Fin, prepare a meal right in front of you. Something rarely experienced even at his own 5-star restaurant.
I can’t recommend this experience enough, particularly if you or your customer has an appliance budget of more than ten thousand dollars. Deciding on which appliances to splurge on can become difficult when you see and taste dishes prepared in built in steamers or speed ovens, or sample espresso from Miele coffee makers.
I’m getting hungry just thinking about these evenings and so I think it must be time to go again. The beautiful new Subzero, Wolf and Cove showroom at the Philadelphia Navy Yard or the Miele Experience Center in Princeton, New Jersey have particularly enjoyable programs.
