Signature Kitchen Suite Earns 'Best of KBIS 2019' Honor
Luxury Brand Receives Top Accolades for ‘Sous Vide’ Pro Range and Integrated Wine Column Refrigerators at Industry’s Top Kitchen Event
LAS VEGAS, Feb. 22, 2019 — Signature Kitchen Suite earned multiple honors at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), led by the highly coveted Gold “Best of KBIS” Award for its industry-first pro range with built-in sous vide modality, and the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s (NKBA) inaugural “30s Choice Award” for the new integrated wine column refrigerators. Both awards recognize the most innovative new products showcased at the 2019 KBIS, North America’s premier annual event dedicated to the kitchen and bath industry, which took place this week in Las Vegas.
Among the kitchen and bath industry’s most prestigious awards, the Best of KBIS is the official show program that recognizes the best new kitchen and bath products that push the boundaries of design, technology and innovation. Winners are selected based on innovation, design and function. Signature Kitchen Suite earned the top honor among all kitchen products at the show, not just kitchen appliances but also cabinetry, countertops and more.
The NKBA honors an outstanding group of young professionals as part of its Thirty Under 30 program. At KBIS, the incoming class was tasked with scouring the KBIS show floor in search of the most innovative products, ideas and technologies in 10 categories which are selected as the NKBA 30s Choice Awards.
Signature Kitchen Suite is the fresh new luxury brand of built-in kitchen appliances from global home appliance leader LG Electronics, and is committed to innovative thinking, purposeful design and leading-edge precision. The 48-inch dual-fuel range caters to Technicureans™, a new generation of forward-thinking home chefs, combining their passion for food with their appreciation and need for innovation.
This is the first pro range on the market with built-in sous vide, induction and gas – all on the cooktop, delivering the ultimate in precision cooking. Once limited to the pros, sous vide is a cooking technique that utilizes precise temperature control to deliver consistent, restaurant-quality results. Now, with the industry’s first built-in sous vide range, home chefs have the capability to achieve professional-level results and capture the full, true flavor of foods.
Unique to the brand’s new integrated wine column refrigerator series is Wine Cave™ technology, designed for precise wine preservation, inspired by the traditional, historic old-world caves of wineries, located near Signature Kitchen Suite's new Experience and Design Center in Napa Valley, Calif. Carefully tailored to mimic these ideal environments, the exclusive Wine Cave design significantly reduces vibration – a primary impediment to wine preservation, which causes chemical imbalances affecting the quality, flavors, aromas and texture – as well as minimizes temperature fluctuations, limits light exposure and locks in humidity. Coinciding with the launch, the brand debuted a True Sommelier™ app that helps wine collectors manage their personal collections.
“KBIS has become the platform to launch and showcase extraordinary kitchen and bath products that push the boundaries of design and innovation,” said Brian Pagel, senior vice president, Emerald Expositions. “As a Best of KBIS award winner, Signature Kitchen Suite is demonstrating outstanding innovation, technological prowess and distinctive design.”
“We are challenging the industry to deliver exceptional innovation and value to our customers, so it's a tremendous honor to see both our sous-vide pro range and new integrated wine column refrigerators capture such coveted distinctions at the premier kitchen industry event,” said Zach Elkin, general manager of Signature Kitchen Suite. “With thoughtful design, leading-edge precision and smart, intuitive features, Signature Kitchen Suite continues to lead innovation in the high-end kitchen appliance market.”
