Second homes with luxury kitchens
1. GaggenauThis German brand is known for its professional-grade appliances including ovens, cooktops, refrigerators and wine cabinets. But the star of the show is their sleek, built-in stainless steel espresso machine. It’s designed to be built into a wall of cabinets, and it features one-touch controls, constant water temperature and an integrated milk system. It’s even Wi-Fi enabled. No matter which appliances you choose from Gaggenau, you’ll enjoy a sleek, industrial-inspired design aesthetic, perfect for modern homes.
2. MieleAnother German brand, Miele appliances are popular for their durability. Since they’re manufactured entirely in-house, they’re known to last up to 20 years. Miele’s business is built on the German phrase immer besser (or “forever better"), and their kitchen appliances help amateur chefs achieve just that. With a simple design aesthetic that fits flawlessly in any kitchen, Miele offers ranges, hoods, cooktops, dishwashers and microwave ovens built with thoughtful, convenient features. For example, some of their dishwashers boast knock-to-open doors, so you can more easily open the dishwasher when your hands are full of dishes.
3. Sub-ZeroSub-Zero is without a doubt known for its world-class refrigeration units. This Wisconsin-based, family-owned company has long been the industry standard in commercial kitchens, but the quality of their residential line is just as impressive. This brand is especially valuable for uniquely designed kitchens. They offer a wider range of sizes, depths and styles than most other brands. Another must-have from Sub-Zero? Their undercounter wine storage refrigerator. It’s equipped with rolling racks, UV-resistant glass and humidity-controlling technology. You can customize the door to match your kitchen cabinets, or simply go with classic stainless steel.
4. WolfA sister company to Sub-Zero, Wolf is known for its professional-grade ranges — you can easily spot their signature red knobs. Ideal for the home chef who wants to cook like a pro, Wolf stoves come in four sizes and are available in gas, dual-fuel and induction versions. With options like an infrared charbroiler, infrared griddle and up to six dual-stacked burners, Wolf ranges can be customized to fit your culinary needs.
