When it comes to creating the perfect custom kitchen, a large number of decisions must be made, and the possible combinations can be overwhelming . Clients must decide on cabinetry, countertops, backsplash, flooring, lighting, painting, hardware, appliances, etc…..Fortunately, TriFection professionals offer our assistance to make the process as efficient and pain-free for our clients as possible. To do so effectively, we must partner with vendors who have proven expertise in various products and keep us informed on the latest innovations. The kind folks from Thermador / Bosch recently hosted a fun event for the TriFection team, where we got to experience firsthand their impressive cooking technology and enjoy a great lunch we prepared at the same time!
Choosing the right appliances is a key starting point
The design of a custom kitchen starts with clients’ chosen appliances. They must first decide if they want double- ovens, a cooktop or a range, an island or wall-mounted venthood, the style of refrigerator, gas vs. electric vs. induction, etc. TriFection then designs and builds custom cabinetry to accommodate those appliances and other functional needs. Not surprisingly to most clients, these items represent a major investment, particularly those of higher quality. Therefore, TriFection works closely with knowledgeable vendors who can offer our clients good advice and a wide selection of top-performing brands.
Thermador and Bosch stand for quality and serve our clients well
BSH Home Appliances Corporation is the largest European home appliance manufacturer and the third largest in the world. In the U.S., you may recognize their brands Thermador and Bosch as well as Gaggenau, the ultra-high-end, professional line. Bosch was founded in 1886 and ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Dishwashers and Cooktops” in J.D. Power’s 2015 Kitchen Appliance Study. For over 75 years, the award-winning Thermador line has provided innovative appliances, including the world’s first wall ovens and gas cooktops with a patented Star® Burner and a speed cooking oven that reduces cooking time by 50 percent. Thermador / Bosch District Sales Manager Joe Gonzales was more than eager to show off the latest features of both lines to the TriFection team during the lively cooking event held a few weeks ago.
TriFection whips up a delicious dish with relative ease
Like taking a Ferrari for a test drive, TriFection got to fire up the newest Thermador gas range under the supervision of a professional chef. The team cooked a lunch that included grilled chicken and vegetables, roasted herb potatoes, arugula salad and a chocolate cake with caramel sauce. TriFection owner Jeff Reina grilled the chicken and vegetables to perfection using Thermador’s proprietary technology that cooks more evenly and quickly. Our potatoes came out of the oven an even golden brown regardless of placement on top or bottom shelf, thanks to a heating element in all sides of the oven, not one from just the bottom like many other models. Our delicious caramel sauce for the chocolate cake simmered for over 30 minutes without burning due to the range’s unique self-regulated, intermittent temperature control. Once we completed the food preparation, we feasted on our team’s efforts. It certainly was no ordinary workday lunch! In fact, some of us probably needed a nap afterwards….
As a TriFection client, you can enjoy the same experience with your Thermador, Bosch or Gaggenau appliances
Before leaving, we thanked Joe Gonzales and Thermador / Bosch for arranging this special event, which provided us a better understanding of the latest user-friendly appliance features. Joe offered to host other in-home cooking parties for TriFection clients who purchase Thermador, Bosch or Gaggenau appliances. So, once TriFection completes your beautiful custom kitchen remodel, you can show it off to friends and family while a professional chef helps you prepare fine cuisine and highlights how to get maximum enjoyment from the new appliances. Now, wouldn’t that be more fun than simply the reading the manual?
