Flat Design for Kitchen Appliances
With its very low profile, the gas cooktop all but blends in with counters. It features high-heat burners that reach 18,000 BTUs and a simmer burner that goes as low as 800 BTUs.
A recessed handle helps the stainless-steel appliance maintain a low profile, while three internal racks offer more cleaning capacity. At 42 decibels when running, the 800 series is also among the quietest dishwashers around.
Available in 24- and 30-inch sizes, the microwave has ten power levels and its spacious drawer can accommodate nine-by-13-inch casseroles.
The Milwaukee-made stainless-steel chiller features two separate temperature zones and can hold 46 bottles of wine. It's approved for indoor or outdoor use and fits beneath most counters.
