Disover the best appliances for your
A kitchen island is a great place to dump the shopping bags when you get back from the supermarket and a handy place to prepare food. However, if you want to make it even more versatile, you can choose from a number of integrated appliances and gadgets that have been specially designed for this purpose.
Mark Gook, Miele centre manager at Gerald Giles in Norwich, gives us some ideas on transforming your cooking space.
An induction hob is a must-have accessory in any modern kitchen. Incredibly energy efficient, a hob allows you to prepare meals quickly and easily while doing your bit for the environment. My pick of the bunch is the Miele KM6381. Specifically designed to be installed on a kitchen island, the hob is arranged lengthways as opposed to the traditional square layout. This ensures it fits onto most islands.
If you’re going to install an induction hob on your kitchen island, you’ll need a hood to go with it. My pick is the Miele DA6890 Levantar cooker hood which helps you keep your kitchen island sleek, modern and clutter free. Designed to be concealed within the unit, the hood comes with integrated touch controls.
This is a must-have! The Miele KWT 6322 UG under counter wine conditioner will ensure your wine is stored at the correct temperature.
If your sink is built into your kitchen island, it makes sense to have your dishwasher integrated as well. The Miele G6997 SCVi XXL K20 dishwasher has been designed to fit neatly in a kitchen island.
Fridges and freezers
These need to be concealed but easily accessible. The Miele K32222i fridge and the Miele F32202i freezer offer energy efficiency, spacious storage and are sleek in design.
