Italian kitchen appliance manufacturer Bertazzoni has announced that it intends to launch more than 100 new and redesigned products this year, including a redesigned built-in appliance suite and the manufacturer’s first-ever built-in refrigerator, freezer, and wine cabinet columns.
The new built-in cooking appliances include wall ovens, rangetops, cooktops, and specialty ovens, which include speed ovens, convection steam ovens, microwave drawers, and warming drawers. All models are available in Bertazzoni’s Professional Series, the manufacturer’s signature style, or its Master Series, which offers more commercial aesthetics.
The built-in food and beverage preservation columns can be installed individually or in combinations of multiple units. The built-in refrigerator columns are available in 18-, 24-, 30-, and 36-inch sizes, and feature all-metal interiors with stainless steel crispers and drawers. The built-in freezer columns are available in 18-, 24-, and 30-inch sizes, and feature a choice of custom ice cube size settings. Both are available with a stainless steel panel door or “panel-ready” to match existing kitchen cabinetry.
The built-in wine cabinet, available in 18- or 24-inch sizes, features a triple-glass, UV-protected door as well as LED interior surround lighting, dual-temperature zones, humidity control, and a built-in vibration dampening system.
“We’re evolving the paradigm of beautiful kitchen design, with an unprecedented breadth of products now completing Bertazzoni’s design harmonized appliance suites,” says Paolo Bertazzoni, CEO of Bertazzoni and fifth-generation Bertazzoni family member. “Homeowners can choose a myriad of looks for their kitchen. Anchored by a distinguished Bertazzoni aesthetic, which is omnipresent across all products, we’re delivering timeless style, best-in-class performance, and an authentic Italian flair to homeowners. This intrinsic excellence perceptibly elevates the kitchen experience and brings the joy of cooking from the Bertazzoni family to families around the world.”
New Bertazzoni range hoods and over-the-range microwaves also will be available soon. Chimney and Visor Hoods come in several different iterations. The Chimney Hoods have three silhouettes, and the Visor Hoods have two.
Both types of kitchen hoods offer up to 600 CFM extraction power, with the 24-inch Visor Hood being the only one that goes up to 300 CFMs. Each hood also features a three-speed motor, LED lights, and aluminum mesh filters.
Bertazzoni’s Over-The-Range Microwaves come with the same CFM capability of 300, but with 10 microwave power levels. Instead of an aluminum mesh filter, the product comes with a charcoal filter for maximum efficiency, the company says. To combat pesky fingerprints that come naturally with microwave use, the treatment of the stainless steel prevents prints. The microwaves include an LED-lit digital touch screen interface, and a door touch release button.
Current European kitchen trends have influenced the company’s release, namely the growing interest of consumers to purchase an entire suite of appliances for their kitchens, and the brand’s desire to have a product fit for any need in the kitchen.
