Here at Kitchen Design Concepts, we love getting excited about the latest kitchen developments. Luxury appliance brand Jenn-Air is one of the leaders in kitchen advancement, since the first self-ventilated cooktop in 1961. Our Co-Founder, Mary Kathryn Reese, recently attended a Jenn-Air Master Class series and left eager to share about the latest products.

Among her favorites was a ductless downdraft cooktop that combines a well-performing ventilation system with the flexibility to install in any home, even high-rises and condos.

The biggest take-away was a chrome-infused griddle featuring non-scratch Teflon. “It did NOT stick when doing eggs, it was amazing,” Reese reported, “a must-have for anyone where a grill is important.”

We especially love that all Jenn-Air products are manufactured in the U.S.A. You can keep an eye on the latest products from Jenn-Air for yourself – their free iPhone app lets you instantly visualize their collection in your kitchen and their Master Class series blog features videos on everything from throwing a great dinner party to creating a kitchen that reflects your style hosted by noted designers and chefs.
