Some of the most attention-getting kitchen innovations are with appliances, especially with cooktops, ovens and ranges. From new sizes to more flexibility in creating a kitchen that works for a family‘s lifestyle, there are more options than ever, and the only limit is your dream — and your budget! More than a century ago, Bertazzoni started as a maker of wood-burning stoves and over the intervening century has evolved into a global purveyor of high-end appliances. While it creates various sizes of ranges, the highlight was this counter-depth six-burner cooktop, which is desirable for many US homes where custom kitchens use this depth for appliances. The slimmer range still offers the power of six burners. Those seeking a more specialized custom cooking experience can look to Jenn Air, whose new offerings include interchangeable cooking components. Here the cooktop features an induction wok segment, a gas-powered standard cooktop and a teppanyaki-style griddle. Moreover, Jenn-Air is soon launching kitchen components that will work with your Alexa voice-activated home assistant.

The latest dishwashers from Thermador have a lighted interior, which is especially helpful with day-to-day usage and finding anything that you might have dropped when loading the dishwasher. It has flexible racks that can adapt to large pots and pans or delicate stemware. The company says it's dishwashers also have one of the fastest full-load wash cycles. Innovations and new ideas for sink fixtures like faucets also make use of new technology. This Brizo faucet is the Artesso, equipped with Smartouch technology. The design has an industrial vibe, but is refined enough for any kitchen. In addition to the usual conveniences of a sprayer head style, this model features a magnetic docking system and an LED temperature indicator. Any avid cook knows that a pot-filling faucet can be one of the more functional faucet additions to a kitchen. This one by Waterworks has a retro feel that works with the red brick tile wall. With a pot faucet, there's no need to lug big pots of water from the sink, or struggle to fill them under standard sink faucet.

Actually, a quartz countertop is not going to be 100 percent quartz. The material is man-made, combining quartz with other materials. It is actually 90% ground with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. The quartz minerals are mixed with the resin and then treated with pressure and heat to form the countertop material, which very hard and granite-like. How finely the quartz is ground will determine the appearance. Coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance and finely ground quartz gives a smoother look. Countertop thickness ranges from ½ inch to 1-¼ inches, depending on style, brand, and size. Because the resin binds all the quartz crystals together, the end product is nonporous, making it exceptionally sanitary. There are no cracks or crevices for bacteria and germs to settle in and it serves as a perfect work surface. You can even purchase quartz countertops that are certified as food safe. It‘s also waterproof so it can be used with an under-mounted sink. Unlike natural stone countertops, quartz counters do not need to be sealed. Nonporous surfaces like quartz also help resist stains. They are easy to clean using mild soap, water, and a soft cloth. When buying natural stone, you have to choose the specific slab you want to use thanks to the variations in color and pattern that Mother Nature provides in a single slab of stone. This is not the case with quartz countertops. Because they are manufactured, you won’t have wide variations in color and pattern and can have a more consistent look.
