The Thermador Star® Partner Program: A Builder's Best Friend

Due to very popular demand, Thermador has extended its Star® Partner Program to allow builders, remodelers and other professionals to personally experience the latest Thermador appliances while contributing to their businesses' bottom line.

"Just like they have been for decades, recommendations and positive word-of-mouth from members of the building trade are vital to the continued success of Thermador," explained Zach Elkin, director, Luxury Division, Thermador. "So it makes sense for us to do whatever we can to get the latest Thermador appliances in the personal kitchens of our builder, remodeler and architect friends – because, once we do, the products absolutely sell themselves."

Elements of Thermador's Star® Partner Program include:
  • Star® Partner Personal Use Program. Qualified builders, architects and designers can receive unprecedented discounts on Thermador appliances so they can discover firsthand all the joys that come from being a Thermador owner.
  • Star® Partner Rewards Program. This 300-page guide offers designers everything they need – from comprehensive design guidance to product specs for every Thermador appliance model – to enable them to create the ultimate Thermador kitchen. To visit the Design and Planning Guide microsite, go to:

Some restrictions apply. Program not available in CA, HI, ID, MT, OR, WA or WY.
