OK, so it’s not just us. Apparently, it’s also just as difficult for the critics to pinpoint exactly which of our luxury kitchen appliances they like best.

We can only brag so much about our products, so this will make things a bit easier: a leading independent testing agency has all but granted Thermador as having the No. 1 kitchen package in the industry.

On the heels of our 36-inch stainless steel Masterpiece Series Gas Cooktop and our 30-inch Masterpiece Series Wall Oven being ranked No. 1 by this same testing agency, we’re proud to announce three Thermador refrigerators–new to our 2012 Freedom® Collection of fresh food and freezer columns, wine columns and bottom-freezer refrigerators–have been ranked Nos. 1, 2 and 3 in their class.

The #1 ranked kitchen shown above, includes the top-ranked bottom freezer refrigerator, gas cooktop, wall oven and the recognized dishwasher.

Additionally, our 36-inch Pro Grand Range has been on the testing agency’s list for several years and our Sapphire dishwasher has also been recognized in the ratings. It all helps round out what could be considered the highest-performing kitchen appliance suite in the industry.

The most discerning of critics agree that culinary enthusiasts can now customize their entire luxury kitchens all around the finest products on the market: Thermador’s.

Thermador’s newest three stars are part of the largest built-in column refrigeration portfolio in the world. Here they are, in order of their ranking:

1)      Freedom Bottom Freezer—the 36-inch French Door models

2)      Freedom French Door—36-inch models

3)      Side-by-Side Ice and Water Dispenser—42-inch units

There’s a whole lot more we can say about the exciting collection of appliances we’ve placed upon the luxury market in 2012, which includes our industry-leading ONE, TWO, FREE value promotion and is now punctuated by Thermador’s new Freedom Collection of refrigeration products, so stay tuned.

Our current lineup of luxury kitchen appliances represents a substantial commitment by Thermador from a product development and manufacturing standpoint that reflects our goal of becoming the luxury appliance category leader, and we are excited to say that we are delivering on that goal.
