For over 100 years, Maytag appliances have been renowned for their dependability. Their famous Maytag Repair Man character wouldn’t be anywhere near as successful if otherwise. And their new Maytag Cast Iron Black Series kitchen appliances prove that dependability doesn’t have to come at the expense of style.
As anyone in fashion could tell you, black goes with everything, and the Cast Iron Black series is no exception. They’re a bold addition to any kitchen; their matte color texture absorbs excess brightness from white or metallic drawers and countertops, and pops out against natural wood browns and beiges. The Cast Iron color also speaks to the machines’ dependability. This series looks like it means business, and has the power to support that image. And, with fingerprint-proof stainless steel finishes, the entire series retains its luster for longer, with less need for constant cleaning.
Maytag Cast Iron Black Refrigerators
This refrigerator might remind you of the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey, but becomes much more inviting once you swing open its doors to reveal a bevy of features.
This refrigerator splits its 25 cu. ft. capacity between a freezer at the left, and refrigerator at the right, and is lit by energy efficient white LED bulbs. The freezer is equipped with a Soft Freeze bin that is specially designed to control the way food freezes in order to prevent hard icy surfaces. Frozen Pizza Storage stores two pizza boxes upright and out of the way, and folds down for extra space when you need it. The Store-N-Door® ice dispensing system frees up freezer space, and has a removable bin perfect for filling up large containers. On the exterior door, you’ll find an ice and water dispenser built with tall glasses and pitchers in mind, and filtered with EveryDrop™.
The fridge side is replete with the humidity-controlled FreshLock™ crisper, a snack and deli drawer designed to keep meats and cheeses organized, adjustable door bins large and strong enough to hold a gallon of milk or 2-liter bottle of soda, and the durable signature Maytag® metal shelf.
Maytag Cast Iron Black Fully Integrated Dishwashers
These dishwashers have a similarly minimalist façade to the refrigerators, that likewise belies the function and features within. It starts with the most powerful motor on the market, able to tackle your dirtiest dishes like dried-on egg yolk and peanut butter without prerinsing. That motor powers the 4-Blade Stainless Steel Chopper and PowerBlast™ cycle that remove and disintegrates stuck-on food particles. And should your dishes require a gentler touch, there is the Steam Sanitize Option that removes 99.999% of food soil bacteria
It is ENERGY STAR® certified, and comes with Short or Long PowerDry options that you can choose depending on the size of your load. The machine also runs quiet, with select models as low as 47 dBA, so you can start a load before bed and wake up to clean dishes the next morning.
The Dishwasher comes in two configurations; with either 5 wash cycles with room for 15 place settings, or an additional Rinse Only cycle, but room for only 14 place settings. Each version comes with a full stainless steel tub, premium DuraGuard® nylon racks that resist rust, and intuitive tap-to-activate touch control settings.
Maytag Cast Iron Black Ranges
Whether you prefer cooking with natural gas or electricity, the Maytag Cast Iron Black Series has the solution for you in its Freestanding convection ranges. Both feature Power Preheat to let you get to eating dinner faster, True Convection that uses a powerful third heating element and sturdy fan to circulate heat for faster and more even baking and roasting, and Auto Convect Conversion that automatically finds the right time and temperature for your recipes. Additional features shared by both ovens include the hidden bake element that protects the oven floor from spills and drips, Variable Broil to get the best out of every chicken or fish, and Delay Bake and Keep Warm™ settings to help you make the best use of your oven’s real-estate. You also no longer have to fear cleaning your oven, with AquaLift® self-cleaning technology that makes things easy as adding water and wiping things down with a sponge.
If cooking just doesn’t feel real without a flame, the natural gas model comes with 5 burners that range from 800 – 5,000 BTU for a calm simmer, to the 15,000 – 18,000 BTU Power™ burners that allow for a slow, even sauté or a seared-to-perfection filet mignon. And the 8,000 BTU Oval Burner is perfect for all the oversized pots and pans involved in large family or holiday cooks. The Oven has a 5.8 cu. ft. capacity, large enough for the biggest turkey come Thanksgiving.
If, like the owner of a new hybrid, you prefer to go Electric, your version comes with 5 elements that range from a simmering 100W to a powerful 3200W. The 12″/6″ Dual-Choice™ element matches the size of your pan to 1400W or 3000W for maximum efficiency, and the entire cooktop is shatter-resistant and scratch-proof. The oven is also slightly larger, at 6.4 cu. ft., so there’s no recipe too big or ambitious to try.
Maytag Cast Iron Black Microwave Oven
And for all those leftovers, there’s the Over-the-Range Microwave. Ranging from 1.7 or 2 cu. ft. capacity, this microwave features a splat-resistant stainless steel cavity and 1000 cooking watts. The Multiple Speed Exhaust Fan and Charcoal Oder Filter free your kitchen and meals from overwhelming steam or smoke, and unwanted smells, and features like Control Lockout makes the microwave easy to clean. The 2 cu. ft. version also comes with a Sensor Reheat option that automatically adjusts cooking time when you don’t know exactly how long a plate with multiple sides should be nuked for.
With the Cast Iron Black Series of appliances, Maytag continues to prove that there’s value in the tried-and-true, and that a features-rich appliance can still look and operate intuitively. If you’re looking for timeless style and durability, Cast Iron is the way to go.
