Thermador Kicks Off Its 100th Anniversary by Unveiling Groundbreaking New 60" Pro Grand Ranges, Under Counter Refrigeration and Ventilation Solutions

Thermador Continues to Innovate the American Kitchen With New Appliances That Enable Ultimate Personalization

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 19, 2016) - In 2016, Thermador, the iconic American appliance brand that is the leader in luxury cooking, is kicking off a celebration 100 years in the making and building upon its heritage of innovation by introducing groundbreaking appliances. Thermador is ushering in a new category of its iconic cooking appliances: two 60" Pro Grand® Ranges that offer more ways to personalize the cooking experience than any other professional-style ranges of this size. The brand is also rounding out its line of Culinary Preservation Centers by introducing two under counter refrigeration options, as well as unveiling a 60" Custom Hood Insert to match the power and performance of the new ranges.

"From introducing the first built-in wall oven in 1947 to changing the shape of gas cooking with the patented Star® Burner, Thermador thinking breaks both convention and performance limits," said Zach Elkin, director, brand marketing for Thermador. "As we celebrate this milestone anniversary, it is only fitting that Thermador enters its second century with the introduction of new cooking and cooling appliances that not only deliver ultimate power and performance, but continue to enable culinary enthusiasts to uniquely tailor their kitchens and entertaining spaces with appliances that exceed expectations."

60" Pro Grand® Range Collection
Available in July 2016, the 60" Pro Grand® Ranges are the first appliances of their kind to offer this much flexibility for culinary enthusiasts to personalize around their unique style of cooking -- they are truly designed for the kitchens of ultimate entertainers. Each range is equipped with six patented Thermador Star® Burners, including four that offer the ExtraLow® simmering feature and a 22,000 BTUs Power Burner. Beyond that, culinary enthusiasts can select various combinations for their preferred style of cooking on the surface and interior of the appliances.

For the interior, cooks may select from:

  • An Ultimate Entertainer's Center: a 36" Convection Oven alongside a 30" Convection Oven -- offering 10.6 cubic-feet of usable oven space, the most of any 60" professional-style range on the market
  • An Ultimate Culinary Center: a Convection Oven alongside a Steam and Convection Oven and Warming Drawer -- making this the only 60" professional-style range to offer the power of steam cooking

On the surface, the cook may choose to accompany the six Star® Burners with the following:

  • A Professional Grill alongside a 12" Griddle, providing the ability to grill indoors with genuine smoke flavor without the flare-ups as well as the option to cook on a non-stick griddle
  • A 24" Dual Zone Griddle, which is unrivaled in its size and cooking superiority, designed for even heating and easy cleaning, featuring a smooth, scratch-resistant surface

Additionally, the innovative venting technology in this range reduces back wall temperatures -- making this the first professional style range of its size that can be installed flush against a rear wall with zero clearance.

60" Professional® Series Custom Hood Insert
To accompany the power and performance of the 60" Pro Grand® Ranges, in July 2016, Thermador will also introduce a 60" Professional® Series Custom Hood Insert. The insert will empower culinary enthusiasts to integrate a hood seamlessly into their kitchen design, and quietly and efficiently remove odor and steam from the kitchen. Three fan speeds, easy-to-access controls, bright halogen spotlights and a Powerfully Quiet® ventilation system are just some of the features that make this an ideal ventilation solution in a kitchen designed for ultimate cooking.

Under Counter Refrigeration
As culinary enthusiasts continue to desire an array of appliances that enable personalization, Thermador is introducing new additions to its built-in, fully customizable Freedom® Collection Culinary Preservation line: the Wine Reserve Refrigerator and Double Drawer Refrigerator. Available this month, they are an ideal complement to Thermador Culinary Preservation columns, offering more ways to create a custom culinary preservation configuration.

The Thermador Wine Reserve Refrigerator is an under counter solution for culinary enthusiasts. It can be installed fully flush for seamless integration into any room. The unit offers a range of features, including: six shelves crafted from Wenge wood to match the look of the Freedom® Collection Wine Preservation columns; dual temperature zones that provide the ability to chill red and white wine at different temperatures; UV-tempered glass doors; and vibration control around the compressor to avoid the disturbance of sediment.

The Thermador Double Drawer Refrigerator is a cooling appliance that can be used in a variety of ways with just the press of a button: Refrigeration Mode to preserve fresh ingredients, Pantry Mode to store items like bread and flour at a warmer temperature, and Bar Mode to chill beverages at colder temperatures. Providing further flexibility, the Double Drawer Refrigerator offers removable dividers that can separate each drawer into different storage compartments, and in the top drawer the dividers can be placed on a ledge within the unit to create a shelf to easily stack items inside.
