  1. Interesting approach.

    The failure of residential appliances to provide the power to produce restaurant results has been the biggest problem for the industry since...the industry. For real, serious cooks this sounds like a great solution, if a somewhat pricey one.

    There are loads of interesting products that are less expensive, but I am sure that the seamless, end-to-end experience this product will provide is probably without peer.

    I don't see a steam the steam function incorporated in the combination oven?

    What's the difference between the "induction zone" and the "surround induction zone"?

    The blast chiller sounds like it might be just a tad overboard, unless it's simply a way of talking about a fridge with serious "pull-down" capacity.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Great post.
