What’s Cookin’ in Kitchen Appliances?
Retro Design. Vintage styles are making a big comeback with the help of companies like Big Chill, Elmira Stoveworks (seen on left; elmirastoveworks.com) and GE, which have all developed retro appliance lines as a fresh take on the hot colors of the 1950s. You can buy fridges, ranges, microwaves and dishwashers in a wide variety of colors.
French Door Ovens. French door wall ovens are stylish, but they're also a great choice in limited spaces because you don’t have to allow room for a conventional door to fold down in front. The new GE Mono
model (ge.com) is equipped with Bluetooth so that you can control oven functions remotely with your smartphone.
