Katie’s Favorite Kitchen Appliance

My last blog about my favorite kitchen appliance spurred some conversation around the showroom and I thought I’d share what Katie (lead designer) identified as her favorite. I have to say this appliance is pretty great as well – the microwave drawer.

My Favorite Kitchen Appliance

While there are many great appliances in our most loved room in the home, my favorite kitchen appliance has to be the induction cooktop.
