According to a survey conducted by the Internet Home Alliance 33% of homeowners watch TV in the kitchen.  43% of respondants want to watch TV in their ideal kitchen.

Siemans has come up with a new way to incoporate a TV and DVD player into the kitchen without sacrificing storage or work space.  Their 36″ avantGarde® multiMedia Hood incorporates a 17″ LCD with a sleek vent hood.

The 600 CFM fan is quiet (54 dB) so you won’t miss any of the action from your favorite program. 

Unfortuantely, the 51% of homeowners planning to include a TV in their kitchen remodel this year will have to make other plans for watching TV since the hood won’t be available until 2008.

Jade French Door Wall Oven

Jade French Door Wall ovenMy previous post about the French Door Wall Oven from American Range seemed to draw a lot of interest so I couldn’t wait to report the news that Jade Appliances is working on their own French door model for shipment in 2008.

The tandem doors open to 135 degrees on both sides, providing easy access.  The doors are also spring-loaded from the 90 degree position to the fully open position to ensure that they never close inadvertently.  The oven will have convection bake and broil capabilities with electronic controls and roller racks.
