KBIS 2011: Part 3

May 3, 2011

Here we are with our final report from the 2011 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, held this year in Las Vegas (it's heading back to Chicago in 2012). In this slideshow, we take a peek inside Toto's Integrated Power Eco Faucet, look at Moen's multipurpose universal designs, and explore the history of True's residential undercounter fridge drawers.

  • 
  The inner workings of Toto's Integrated Power Eco Faucet, a hands-free fixture. Unlike most others in its field, this has a temperature control on the side of the unit, giving you the ability to change your water temp without hassle. Yes, it does require touching the dial, but it seems like a nice feature for domestic use.

  Few things draw a crowd like a demonstration. Everpure showed the differing results of running dirty water through a standard pitcher filter versus through the Everpure undercounter filtration system.

  The company recently began producing its own water faucets, one of which is shown here. Everpure also offers countertop filters (ideal for renters or apartment dwellers).

  Universal design was a buzz word at the show. Moen's grab bars were unique in that they incorporated other bathroom elements, such as a towel rack (top), shower caddy (middle), and toilet paper holder (bottom).

  Fisher & Paykel brought dishwasher drawers to popularity, and True claims to be leading the pack in undercounter fridge drawers. Their recently launched residential collection is based on the company's long history as a commercial kitchen refrigeration manufacturer. It integrated features like stainless steel interiors in the fridge drawers and controlled glide drawers in the wine coolers.
