A Focus on Cooking Appliance Banks

Kitchen appliances are no longer just about basic functionality; we now expect them to both excel at what they are designed for and to look beautiful to boot.

The classic range cooker, comprising everything from an ancient Aga to a super modern Wolf, are eternally popular, but equally so are the independent gas or electric hobs with the oven element being housed in a run of tall units. Having these appliances at mid-height make lifting dishes in and out of the ovens a breeze as well as forming a sleek, attractive feature when models from the same range are grouped together.

In the first photograph below, we designed a bank of 400 Series Gaggenau appliances as per our clients’ brief – they include two regular ovens, a steam oven, a microwave and two warming drawers. The second photograph features a range of N90 appliances by Neff, and include a combi-steam oven, a combi-steam microwave, two regular ovens and two warming drawers.

We can create a bank of appliances bespoke to your needs depending on what type of cook you are – for example if you are a keen baker then there are ovens available with dough proofing functions, or if home-made pizza is your thing then you may consider an oven with a built-in pizza stone. Warming drawers are a great addition if you are keen on entertaining, so that your tableware can all be in one place and the perfect temperature for when you are ready to serve.
