Bosch Eggplant Colored Side by Side Refrigerator

bosch-side-by-side-kan62S80ti.jpg

Currently sold in China for ¥13,650, this side by side refrigerator from Bosch has a frameless and strikingly coloured glass front in egglplant. Yes this is a purple 604 litre refrigerator that holds food and keeps things cool just in the right color. We love the simple lines, and wish we could also get this in chartreuse green. It also has a "fuzzy controls" display to give you temperature and other info on the front.

LG Fridge Has Door-in-Door Perfect for Storing Favorite To-Go Foods

56408-LG-Door-in-Door-Interior-md.jpg

LG Electronics has created a fridge that has door-in-door technology. That's right - as you can see there's a french door built right into the main door allowing you to grab stuff quickly. LG’s proprietary Door-In-Door feature is a magnetically sealed section of the right refrigerator door that releases and allows consumers access to the door bin without opening the entire refrigerator. Simply push a button on the door handle to release the magnetic seal. This interior compartment provides consumers quick, easy access to the most commonly needed items in the fridge such as canned or bottled drinks, salad dressings and condiments.

Because of the Door-in-Door feature, less cool air escapes when the easy access compartment is opened, keeping cold air in the rest of your fridge where it matters most.

Induction Stove In-Depth Review

stove.jpg

Our good friend and blogger Jason Butler has recently taken up the task of writing 39 essays in 1 year, and one of them is his take on The Joy of an Induction Stove. He's an avid fan of an induction cooktop, and we think his thoughts from someone who uses one 2-3 times a day are hard to find and amazing to get.

Some highlights:

  • It’s incredibly fast. It boils water in less than half the time of our old electric stove, and faster than our gas one. You grow to love this.
  • Our cooktop is a smooth surface that wipes clean easily. I used to have chase crumbs and spills down the burners, and scrape the grates and the electric coils. This stovetop is so much easier.
  • The rest of the stovetop doesn’t get hot when things are cooking, and the stove itself cools down very quickly. (It still stays warm for a couple of minutes after you take the pot off, so you still have a pay a little attention.)
  • In order to use an induction cooktop, you need pots and pans that are magnetic. In general, this means that you should stick with stainless steel and cast iron cookery. Aluminum, copper and glass pots won’t work.

Cook Anywhere On This Giant Induction Range

3ee1333489658f30b04b64bbcf18cfd0.jpg

Induction cooking employs a copper wire running under the clear ceramic surface and a strong AC current to create a magnetic field which transfers electric current to the cookware and makes heating across a pot or pan even. The result is the cooktop is not hot but the pan is and that means you can induct the electricity across the entire cooktop.

The Freedom includes a 6.3-inch display that recognizes the pot's shape and size, and retails for just over $5000 - so this ease of use and cooktop will not come cheap but might be worth a look if you're redoing your kitchen.

Bertazzoni Master Series Pro-Style Gas Range

41QF4dAxHrL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

The Bertazzoni Master Series Pro-Style Gas Range is gorgeous in design, and exceptional in functionality. The range can be lit with a match if you don't have power, and the oven has one safety feature which is very nice, the door never gets hot. The top of the range features a flat surface so moving pots and pans around is never an issue. We love the stainless steel design here because it truly feels and looks flat and inviting yet very clean in the design of the edges.

Personal Brewery from WilliamsWarn Beer Company

beermachine-0.jpg

Personal brewers are all the rage here in the US and abroad, and we have to give it to the New Zealand company of WilliamsWarn with their personal brewer. Costing just north of $4577 US when it debuts, this personal brewer takes about 7 days to get the job done. The WilliamsWarn brewing machine is currently only available in New Zealand, although its makers hope to expand to the Australian and American markets soon. We like the idea of an all in one personal brewer versus the way we're currently brewing and having to pour over and then bottle or keg our beer. The Personal brewery will deal with all of the sediment, pour off, and other wonders allowing you in the end to just serve a nicely chilled glass of your fresh made beer. Great stuff, and I bet we'll see a personal winery from these guys or others in the coming years.

Kitchen Light Dishwasher

dishwasher-concept.jpg

From designer Kim Joonmin comes a concept that is both interesting and space saving - the kitchen light dishwasher. We love combo concepts and this one doesn't disappoint. We are a little worried about the mess, but perhaps this would work. You open the front and back of the dishwasher to gain access, but we'd also assume you'd need some way to lower it. Also - it would need to be really big and how would the water get in? Through the cords? Who knows but still it's interesting.

Tweeting from Your Fridge Has Never Been Easier

lead-525x349.jpg

Samsung has included apps in the latest addition to its line of refrigerators by installing an 8 inch Wi-Fi LCD screen complete with Twitter, Pandora, AP, WeatherBug, Calendar, Epicurious, Photos and Memos. We don't often TWEET from our fridge, but we would find adding different memos and such to track what we need as being a good thing. We can only hope the fridge hooks up over wi-fi because having to both plumb it and provide an ethernet jack would suck.

Smartfridge from LG Launches

lgsmartfridge.jpg

The wired fridge seems to have come and gone several times, but this networked Smart Fridge from LG seems like it might be better than previous efforts. You'll be able to login to your fridge and adjust cooling settings remotely, and the fridge will feature all the internet data you'd expect like weather, shopping lists, recipes, and maybe even internet feeds. We hope whatever it features it's information at a glance.

Electrolux Infinity Kitchen of the Future is Open Source

electroluxinfinityi-kitchenfridge.jpg

LG a competitor to Electrolux has been touting an internet fridge for awhile with Windows underpinnings and it's never really taken off. Electrolux seems to think the world is now ready to embrace the connected kitchen and has developed an Internet fridge of its own in the form of the Linux-based Infinity I-Kitchen.

Here are some key details:

  • The Infinity I-Fridge takes the embedded computer model pioneered by LG’s offering.
  • It includes a 480 x 800 pixel touchscreen and is powered by a Freescale i.MX25 ARM processor running at 400Mhz with 128MB of RAM.
  • The fridge’s memory comes packed with over 600 recipes, ranging from appetizers and main dishes to light snacks and cocktails.
  • It also comes with applications such as Orkut, Calendar and contacts.
  • The Infinity I-Kitchen refrigerator has a capacity of 542 liters is available in Brazil for the suggested retail price of 5,999 Brazilian Real (approx. US$3,470).

We're not sure if we'd really want an internet fridge, but if it told us the weather on the door at night while we refilled our water glass, we'd probably think it was nifty. It seems like a dockable tablet like an IPAD with a friendly display would be better.
