February 6, 2018

Last month, the Luwa team flew to Orlando, Florida for the 2018 national Kitchen and Bath Industry Show! Every year, designers, consumers, and builders excitedly attend this show to see the newest products that the top kitchen and bath companies have launched. 

 

Our team saw some incredible products from the #Hestan SmartCooking system to the new #Perlick line of ranges (more on these to come). The products that were launched during this exhibition have revolutionized the culinary industry and will change the way you cook and entertain in your home.

 

Here are the Top 5 Products from KBIS 2018:

1. Hestan Range 

This year, Hestan gave interior designers and consumers everything they’ve been waiting for:  a full residential line of Hestan indoor culinary products. It was so hard to choose our favorite product from their incredible line-up, but we have to talk about the Hestan range. This luxury range brings something exclusive and new to the industry unlike anything you have seen before.  

 

 

These are the key features:

 

A Marquise Display which is a touch-screen digital display that’s embedded right into the oven door handle  

 

The CircuFlame Center Power Burner that delivers up to 30,000 BTUs making it the most powerful burner available for your home 

 

Simmer flame capability that maintains a gentle 500 BTU heat without flickering flames (a must have for home food enthusiasts) 

 

Back Lit Control knobs give the powerful range a sleek and elegant look that will complement any kitchen style

 

 

 

 

2. Perlick 24" Refrigerator Column

Perlick fans everywhere were thrilled to see the brand new line of Perlick 24” full height columns. After years of specializing in commercial bar ware and luxury residential under-counter refrigeration, Perlick showcased their exciting new full height residential refrigeration line. As the industry’s top refrigeration experts, it came as no surprise that Perlick’s new units were an instant hit among designers and consumers everywhere.

Slide-In marinating commercial grade pan that is ideal for storing your pre-made appetizers, marinades or sous-vide packets without taking up shelf space 

 

 

 

3. Vent-A-Hood Duct Free Range Hood

Vent-A-Hood has one of the best reputations in the culinary industry because of it’s incredible magic lung system that leads in performance and efficiency while staying whisper quiet. In the past, clients without a duct system would have to sacrifice a high performing Vent-A-Hood for an alternative that didn’t fit their needs which is why we’re so excited about Vent-A-Hood’s Air Recovery System Duct Free Hood. It allows you to enjoy the benefits of a superior hood without needing ducting in your apartment or home.

 

 

These are the key features:

 

 

The active canopy technology effectively captures cooking vapors

5 year full parts and labor warranty 

 

Unlimited design freedom to match your style

If you’re looking for an efficient, easy to clean, versatile and safe smoker – look no further than the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker.
