The Hottest New Kitchen Appliances. A List of Popular Appliance Innovations.

Just like the refrigerator replaced the ice box after 1900, new appliance innovations are making previous innovations obsolete. Below are Main Line Kitchen Design’s list of some of the hottest new appliances. Many of these appliances are a little on the expensive side now, but often appliance prices drop as the technology improves or the original patent expires.

Several Manufacturers make steam ovens as well as convection steam ovens. Customers always seem to be happy with choosing steam ovens. Convection steam ovens are often responsible for the compliments on dishes served at restaurants and cooking demonstrations. Ever wonder how a restaurant got your salmon or turkey so moist? The answer is usually a convection steam oven.

GE Appliances New Kitchen Hub – Microwavehood with smart display

The 27-inch over the range smart display GE Appliances released last year is getting a second generation with a microwave and new smart home features.

The Kitchen Hub had nearly everything a home chef could want, including cameras to view, record and share your cooktop, recipe apps and all the functionality of an Android tablet. But it was missing the one thing many people expect above their ranges — a microwave. 

This year, GE Appliances is adding that microwave functionality with the Next Gen Kitchen Hub. This new Kitchen Hub gains a 1.9 cubic foot microwave. You still get all the Android tablet features like streaming Netflix and Spotify from the display or video chatting with friends and family.

Main Line Kitchen Design’s company slogan is “The world of kitchen design is changing . . .”

Designing kitchens with some of these new appliances along with creative kitchen designs, makes our slogan a reality.

    Hello: Has anyone had experience with Kobe Brillia range hood inserts? They are relatively inexpensive compared to some but seem to get good reviews and have won at least one design award. Thank you

      Hi Bob,
      I’ve never heard of them. I looked at the Yale appliance website and they don’t review them. Yale is the most reliable appliance review site. When homeowners review an appliance, it only means they were happy initially with their purchase. It doesn’t mean the appliance lasts or functions well. Having won many awards ourselves I know that winning awards isn’t that meaningful. By the way – you need a replacement air system for all blowers over 400 CFM’s and I don’t know how the Kobe blower works with any system. Not getting replacement air is against code and endangers your family.
