During the last decade, kitchen appliances have offered professional quality as well energy efficiency, like this Energy Star rated GE refrigerator.
Chef Holmes: Professional kitchens haven’t really changed. I know in the home, more people do want a professional kitchen, and I think that’s maybe because of the exposure of chefs and cooking shows on television.
Chef Selland: In the last decade more ranges with a lot more power became available. I think it’s great that a lot of restaurant-type appliances have been made for home use.
Chef Subido: I think the biggest improvement I saw was that more manufacturers started making energy-efficient appliances. It was good to see energy saving become a priority.
Verdict: From 2000 to 2010, kitchen appliances have offered more professional features and have become more efficient. Since we don’t foresee a dark ages of kitchen appliance innovation, expect these trends to continue.
