Builders Show to Launch Slide-In Ranges
Jenn-Air is unveiling its new slide-in range models at January’s International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla. The new models combine high-performance features with exclusive styling, including the manufacturer’s popular floating glass finish.
Jenn-Air is a division of Maytag Appliances, which is headquartered in Newton, Iowa and is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — the Supplier 100 of NAHB.
The new ranges feature the industry’s largest slide-in oven capacities, while convection models include an exclusive system that the manufacturer says is ideal for baking, roasting, drying or thawing. Jenn-Air’s new “butterfly convection element uses patented technology to improve heat distribution and airflow.
Gas and dual-fuel models boast a new triple-flame burner, with two rings surrounding a 15,000-BTU, high-output burner, and all-electric model cooktops feature a dual radiant element that provides precise heat control comparable to gas.
With a high-end, built-in look, Jenn-Air’s slide-in ranges have been completely re-styled to reflect the newest kitchen trends, with sleek, curbed black or white glass oven doors.
Stainless steel finishes are available in a Pro-Style featuring commercial-quality grates and knobs and rugged diamond-etched handles and in a Euro-Style with softer, more subtle visual elements, such as a towel-bar style of handle and sleek all-stainless controls.
The ranges will be available beginning in January and are expected to retail from $1,399 to $2,449, depending on the model.
