Live from KBIS in Chicago, the world’s largest Kitchen and Bath Trade Show!
Cindy takes you behind the scenes with a special Home Wizards broadcast from McCormick Place in the Windy City — and a look at the latest products and innovations for your kitchen, bath and home. The overriding theme and trend this year is luxury design, high tech function, convenience and going green, with a little wow factor thrown in.
JENN-AIR makes doing dishes a good thing with its new Trifecta® Dishwasher. Best part is, this machine can diagnose how dirty your dishes really are and what they need, and with a sensor wash it can gauge the load size and adjust accordingly. It uses less water and offers a Split and Fit™ and fit silverware basket. Juliet Johnson, Premium Brand Manager explains how this will simplify your life and other kitchen products and trends we can expect.
GE is tapping into the trend for smarter appliances. They have introduced the Hybrid Water Heather that uses up to 62 % less energy than the regular electric water heater and can cut your water heating energy costs by more than half.
GE also has a new induction range and convection oven that stood up to the test of more than 100 cooks in the Pillsbury bake-off. GE’s Mike Byerly and Sam Scott share how they work.
BLANCO is making living green easier in the kitchen and the bath with new creations.
The SOLON Compost Bin for one makes the notion of saving scraps for the garden a pleasant and odor free experience, while introducing a new sink and faucet color that blends in with our eco-friendly lifestyle –The SILGRANIT II BISCOTTI. Christy Emens with BLANCO talks with Cindy about all of it and how these designs are unique.
