Here is what's catching my attention...new and/or interesting products you need to know about.
Blue Star is sort of a lone wolf (no pun intended) in the pro range category. A somewhat silent player, it's a product that deserves more attention. Blue Star says that they are the only genuine restaurant range for the home due to their open burner system, producing 22,000 btus of power, resulting in shorter cooking times and an even simmer. BUILD YOUR OWN Blue Star range (that's what I built in the image) to reflect your personal style and preferences.
Miele hasjust redesigned their CombiSets, or modular cooking pieces. I LOVE modular pieces. It's a super flexible, super functional way to precision-design your cooking needs. The new line includes an induction cooktop and Japanese Tepan Yaki. The design of these pieces are gorgeous, with controls that are slanted in an ergonomic way. A slightly larger 15" size is available for some models and that really makes sense to me.
I'm crazy about sink accessories! In my new home, I have this one small built-in cutting board, and it's so incredibly useful to have it right nearby. We do so many tasks at our sinks...sink accessories are a huge help throughout the process. Elkay is introducing a wide assortment of new sink accessories, enhancing aesthetics and expanding functionality in the kitchen. Designed for the Gourmet e-granite and Avado sink families. There are 39 new accessories!
Oceanside Glasstile's Muse is a clean edge, handcrafted, recycled glass mosaic tile. It comes in over 42 colors and nine patterns.
Some of the colors contain up to 97% recycled bottle glass, which is collected from curbside recycling programs (definitely a ton of Corona bottles!)
I love these random products that I find, just love them.
Here is a copper spice rack. Doesn't it look so elegant? It also comes in aluminum, brass or stainless steel. I would imagine there may be some polishing required on occasion, unless a sealer is used, better check with the manufacturer.
The finishes available are mirror, fine satin, anodized, antique and etched. By Quality Metal Works, in business since 1965. 10 1/4W x 31H x 4 3/4D
Another cool accessory for the sink, here's a cloth holder from Magisso. A clever concept, the cloth holder uses magnets to keep it in place...one magnet inside the sink cabinet on the outside of the sink and one in the cloth holder to attach to the outside magnet. It will not scratch the surface of your sink. Some cool, Scandinavian designs too!
