Intimate get-togethers with friends and family always seem to end up migrating to the kitchen. It’s just logical. Guests can pick at food in the refrigerator, hosts can whip up a quick snack while not having to miss out on scintillating conversation, and the television can be on in the background to help with lulls in the action. Manhattan soirees are no different. However, the chicest apartment kitchens these days have a minimalist style that evokes a certain je ne sais quoi. We at Appliances Connection have curated this 6-piece kitchen package that will let anyone anywhere entertain with Manhattan flair. Take a look.
See Through Cool
This panel-ready Sub-Zero 30-inch counter depth bottom freezer refrigerator (BI36UGORH) with a capacious 17.3 cu ft allows you to glance casually over to the glass front to see what’s inside. It features Sub-Zero’s dual refrigeration system that uses separate compressors for the refrigerator and freezer. This makes sure each compartment has its own temperature and humidity levels. To further optimize the preservation environments, a microprocessor monitors and adjusts climate levels based on usage and schedule to make sure every food is stored at its most ideal condition. The internal ice maker uses a water filtration system that removes contaminants such as chlorine for the freshest most delicious ice.
The Ultimate Minimalist Cooktop
The PITT 48-inch natural gas cooktop (FOESSAXL) is the epitome of minimalism. Its 6 burners appear to sit directly on the countertop while the gas plumbing is hidden underneath. It’s sure to be a conversation piece with guests while not sacrificing the full functionality of a conventional cooktop. The two side power burners are capable of generating up to 17,000 BTUs of heat for searing and wok stir-fries. The middle burners will be your workhorses with between 6,000 and 10,000 BTUs. Each, though, is nuanced enough to lower the output to 650 BTUs for simmering or melting cheese.
Versatile Cooking with Italian Design
This 30-inch double wall oven (F7DP30B1), from Fulgor Milano’s 700 Series is absolutely indispensable when preparing food for a group of people. Each oven has a massive 4.4 cu ft capacity. The telescopic racks are fully retractable so you can smoothly slide even the heaviest casserole dishes in and out for easy access. Along with the traditional oven modes such as baking and broiling, this oven also features a pizza mode which can cook two full-sized pizzas in only 2.5 minutes at 590 degrees F. It’s perfect for hungry guests. Even at its hottest, though, the oven is built with Fulgor Milano’s “Cool Touch Door” technology which can prevent accidental burns with several bodies shuffling around the kitchen. After an event, you can use the oven’s pyrolytic self-cleaning function which heats the interior cavity to extremely high temperatures burning off any excess grease and food residue.
Black Granite, Understated Style
Every kitchen needs a sink, and though granite is no longer the most popular countertop material, this black granite composite sink from Alfi (AB3020DIBLA) is stunning and sturdy. When coupled with the svelte, matching Vigo pull-out kitchen faucet (VG02008MB), they make a winning combination.
Sound And Vision
TVs have become wafer-thin in recent years which suits minimalism perfectly. This 32-inch flat screen television (UN32N5300AFXNA) from Samsung has all the features you’d come to expect from a high-end TV. The 1080p full HD gives you a crystal clear picture. This is paired with Samsung’s proprietary “Motion Rate 60” which gives the television an extremely fast refresh rate, ensuring smooth moving images. Do you need to settle a light dispute amongst friends about wonderfully odd trivia? The TV has a full web browser for access to news sites or Wikipedia at your fingertips. This particular model is large enough for everyone to have a good view but not so large for it to be an overwhelming presence and interfere with a party atmosphere.
