New trend in appliances


New French-Door Ovens

French-Door ovens for the home have been in various stages of planning for the past 10 to 15 years. They've existed in commercial kitchens for some time, and features from commercial appliances often migrate to the home appliance category. So, it was no surprise to see Viking and GE Monogram introduce French-Door wall ovens last year.

Among other high end specialty cooking brands both BlueStar and American Range have introduced French-Door wall ovens. Today, we're going to showcase the latest offering in this category:

GE Café's new French-Door wall oven

We've written about the GE Monogram French-Door wall oven before (New GE Monogram Oven). GE is now also introducing a French-Door wall oven in its Café appliance line. Here are the key features of the new GE Café French-Door wall oven:

Self-Clean with Steam-Clean option

You are probably used to having a self-clean oven so you may be surprised to learn that most of GE's competitors in this category do not offer a self-clean oven even at a much higher price than GE Café. On top of the self-clean feature you can save time and save energy by using GE's Steam Clean feature.

True European Convection with Direct Air

There are different types of convection. This GE oven delivers True European Convection which includes a rear convection fan surrounded by an additional convection heating element. The Direct Air feature adds heated air distribution from the top of the oven for the best in even heat, a GE exclusive.

Wi-Fi Connect

With Wi-Fi Connect users can remotely control their GE French-Door oven from their Smart Phones.

It's good news that French-Door ovens are now being offered for homes and not just in commercial applications. It's even better news, that multiple brands are competing with different features at different price points. The consumer wins – that's the best news of all!
