KitchenAid has launched a new generation of 30-in. slide-in ranges offering an all-new design and the brand’s Even-Heat™ True Convection system. The ranges are part of an entirely new collection of KitchenAid® major appliances, with most scheduled for availability beginning this month.
Select slide-in models can be installed seamlessly through use of the brand’s FIT Guarantee system. When replacing an existing slide-in range, a unified look and feel can be achieved with optional trim pieces to cover any unfinished countertop edge. The traditional range backguard has been removed from the new models for a modern look and simple installation either against a wall or in an island.
New design elements include handles that are etched with a professional-style, cross-hatch pattern for a slip-free grip, and are capped with a signature red KitchenAid medallion at either end. Chrome inlaid frames accent the transition between the glass door of the oven and surrounding surfaces, and the cooktop’s multi-finish knobs are designed in brushed stainless steel and chrome with a bladed dial to ensure precise temperature selection. Two new downdraft ventilation models – either in dual fuel or electric – will also be available to collect smoke and odors right at the source.
