It’s finally time to fill you all in on all the exciting announcements that we’ve been just bursting to tell you about! 2016 was truly exceptional with our year-long 100th anniversary celebration—this year, we’re starting off with a bang and introducing an entire new line of products across each category. Are you ready? Here’s what you’ll see from Thermador this year!
Culinary Preservation Centers
Thermador originated built-in modular refrigeration years ago, and this was refreshed last year with our Culinary Preservation Columns. This year, we’re taking it to the next level with a completely reimagined collection of fresh food, freezer and wine columns. The collection has been expanded to offer the ultimate in innovation, exceptional luxury and personalization for the home. The 2017 line offers multiple options for mixing, matching or combining units for a completely bespoke configuration, including a 36” refrigerator column, 36” freezer column and a 23 ½” refrigerator column that can fill a pre-existing cutout of 42” or 48” when matched with an 18” or 24” freezer column.
The new line boasts a clean and luxurious new interior design with glass shelves and aluminum trim, a clean symmetry when paired with any of the other columns, a modern finish and an array of innovative new features designed to assist cooks in bringing their culinary story full circle.
Thermador wine columns also feature a new design, including a new 24” column that can store up to 99 bottles. It includes a new presenter shelf and three independent wine zones, so culinary enthusiasts can enjoy more flexibility and store their finest wines at the appropriate temperature.
Under Counter Refrigeration
Following last year’s introduction of the Wine Reserve Refrigerator and Double Drawer Refrigerator, Thermador is adding the Combo Drawer Refrigerator and a Glass Door Refrigerator to its lineup in 2017. The new Combo Drawer Refrigerator—with a refrigerator top drawer and freezer bottom drawer that includes an ice maker—is a perfect addition to a bar room or media room where guests are frequently entertained. The new Glass Door Refrigerator features aluminum trim, a UV-protected glass door, glass shelves and the option to lower the temperature to 33 degrees, so ultimate entertainers can store and serve their favorite craft beers with confidence.
Liberty® Induction Cooktop
As a leader in cooking innovation, Thermador offers a wide range of options for culinary enthusiasts. This year, we are expanding our collection of induction cooktops with the new Liberty® Induction Cooktop. It empowers cooks to step up from a traditional round element surface into a more flexible induction cooking surface. The cooktop features 11 oval inductors divided into 3 cooking zones – each zone can accommodate pots and pans from 3” to 11”, as well as teppanyaki grills that can measure up to 16”. It is equipped with an array of Thermador-exclusive features, such as HeatShift™ and MoveMode™, which are unique to this cooking surface and allow cooks to move around their cookware during meal prep.
Built-In Fully Automatic Coffee Machine
There is no such thing as too much coffee, so we’re introducing a new Built-In Fully Automatic Coffee Machine. This appliance is a completely programmable coffeehouse-style machine that can prepare up to ten different beverages with ease, from a latte macchiato to a flavor-rich espresso. It is simple to prepare hot beverages with just a touch of a button, and you can also warm or froth milk for guests who enjoy lattes or cappuccinos.
Cleaning up after a meal is just as much a part of the entertaining process as the party prep. That’s why we are enhancing our Star-Sapphire™ Dishwasher, known for offering the industry’s fastest cycle – StarSpeed – at just 20 minutes. Upgrades to the appliance include a new Entertainer’s Drawer, which is a third rack that brings more capacity to the dishwasher and is completely customizable to the culinary enthusiast’s unique needs. The metallic design of the rack is expertly crafted to match the luxurious design of the dishwasher for a premium look and feel in a luxury kitchen. Additional features like Star Glow, which gives the cook an option of different lighting to illuminate the interior, and a special wine glass caddy that provides peace of mind when washing fine stemware, make this dishwasher the ultimate co-host.
We told you there was a lot to be excited about this year. Stay tuned – we’ll make sure to dive deeper into these exciting new products with future posts. In the meantime, keep up with us on our social media pages, where you can follow along as we kick off our second century!
