Given the frequency of use and the importance of each appliance, this blog will focus on the various options you have if you are looking to make an addition to your kitchen.  The different types and advantages of each type of oven and cooktop will be discussed.
Wolf appliances are top of the line.  The company provides several different types of ovens including the M Series.  This line offers advanced Dual VertiCross convection.  The E Series, on the other hand, features two convection fans and multiple heating elements that allow you to control heat and airflow with precision.  Lastly, convection steam ovens offer the versatility of choosing steam or convection.  The oven automatically senses the amount, shape, and size of your food and adjusts accordingly.  Talk about an elite oven!

Bosch is a more affordable choice.  Their convection ovens offer genuine European Convection for even baking.  Steam ovens are perfect for dishes that need to be moist on the inside and crisp on the outside such as desserts or steamed vegetables.  If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, a combination oven offers a steam oven on top and a Genuine European Convection single oven on bottom.
Like Wolf, Bosch cooktops provide several offerings so you can find what is best for your preferences and needs.  Bosch Induction cooktops have FlexInduction technology that allow you to combine two cooking zones to fit large pans.  The cooktop senses the size of your pans so you are provided with different sizes depending on the size of your pan.  Gas cooktop burners have high heat and low simmer options for optimal cooking flexibility.  One of their models even features a dual-stacked burner.  A final option is electric cooktops with the ability to command precise temperatures with the touch of a button.
Miele is another solid choice.  Their convection ovens have three distinctive control options that you can select.  Miele’s steam ovens offer the benefit of cooking food in a way that preserves flavor and nutrients.  In fact, steamed food has a vitamin content of up to 50% more than food that is boiled.  This method of cooking is great for tender veggies, fish, and grains.  Speed ovens speed up the process of cooking by combining microwave and convection modes.  You have the speed of microwave technology with the increased quality offered by conventional cooking methods.  Last but certainly not least, combi-steam ovens combine all the functions of a convection oven with the advantages of a steam oven.
The brand you choose depends on your budget while the type of oven or cooktop you select depends on the type of foods that you typically cook.  Different foods are more suitable with certain types of ovens while some types of ovens and cooktops offer more flexibility than others.  If you would like to browse our collection of ovens and cooktops or learn more about the intricacies surrounding different types of ovens and cooktops, feel free to stop by our showroom.  Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Houzz to stay up-to-date on all the happenings at K&N Sales!
