Thermador Readies For Launch Of 'ultimate Culinary Center'
Luxury-appliance brand is set to introduce the Pro Grand® Steam Range, the first range to offer seven distinct cooking options for the culinary enthusiast
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (August 16, 2011) — Thermador (http://www.thermador.com), the inventor of the wall oven and countless other kitchen appliance firsts, asks the question: “Do you cook?”
That question has never been more relevant than now, as the luxury-appliance brand readies for the launch of what is being labeled as The Ultimate Culinary Center™. The new Pro Grand® Steam Range, available this fall at high-end appliance retailers nationwide, is the world’s first all-in-one cooking appliance to combine a Steam & Convection combination oven, a full-size convection oven, a six-burner gas rangetop with a grill or griddle option, and a warming drawer. Additionally, it houses Thermador’s cooking exclusives, such as the ExtraLow® simmering technology, and a new power Star® Burner delivering 22,000 BTUs per hour.
Thermador’s new flagship 48-inch range, which offers steaming, convection baking, burner cooking, simmering, grilling, griddle cooking and warming, is meant for the culinary enthusiast who truly enjoys cooking and wants every cooking option available to make the perfect meal at home. An entire holiday meal can be prepared with one appliance, including the cooking of a 14-pound turkey in just 90 minutes in the steam and convection oven, or even at-home wok cooking using the industry’s most powerful gas Star Burner
“As the brand that stood for the very best in cooking appliances for more than 11 decades, Thermador has certainly been at the forefront of kitchen innovation,” said Zach Elkin, director of the Thermador brand. “But the Pro Grand Steam Range certainly elevates Thermador to new culinary heights. A proud centerpiece for any kitchen, it is the world’s first appliance to delivery seven distinct cooking options with all of our cooking exclusives. Thermador has always been the brand for true home cooks, but we’ve never introduced an appliance that aligns this well with our brand statement of ‘Real Innovations for Real Cooks.’ ”
The Pro Grand Steam Range will be available at high-end appliance retailers for an MSRP of $13,995.
Thermador has been providing real innovations for real cooks for more than 75 years. The iconic line of cooking, cleaning, refrigeration and ventilation products remains committed to empowering culinary enthusiasts to be their best through continuous innovation breakthroughs – from the world’s first wall ovens and gas cooktops with the patented Star® Burner to a speedcooking oven that reduces cooking time by 50 percent.
