Howdy kitchen fans,
I’ve been planning out a kitchen for myself recently, and whilst picking out wood kitchen units and wooden worktops from our fabulous selection was straightforward, I struggled to choose from the seemingly endless selection of kitchen appliances.
After finally settling on the perfect dishwasher, fridge and cooker, I thought that I would share my favourite five appliances with you lovely people – thanks to my top five, kitting out solid wood kitchens will be a breeze!
Neff B25CR22N1B 60cm Electric Oven
The lovely people at Neff produce some truly elegant kitchen appliances, and this integrated stainless steel electric oven is just one such example.
Amongst the long list of handy features, the B45E42 features a SlideAway door that provides easy access and reduces the risk of self-inflicted burns, Neff’s special CircoTherm technology for simultaneous baking and roasting, and many other features controlled via a 2.5” colour display and touch controls.

Fisher & Paykel Double DishDrawer
Forget the traditional style most dishwashers stick to, Fisher & Paykel’s DishDrawer system is both innovative and space saving.
Available in single or double units, this dishwasher is designed to blend into existing kitchen cabinets and is considerably more economic as you only need run one drawer at a time whilst loading the other. This design is also more convenient and ergonomic.

Falcon SxS Refigerator
Packed with the latest innovations in cooling technology, this side-by-side fridge freezer is both incredibly spacious and stylish.
Featuring a water and ice dispenser, digital temperature controls and humidity controlled crisper drawers, this really is the king of kitchen fridges. With an A+++ efficiency rating under its belt, it’s also environmentally friendly, too.

Franke Downdraft Kitchen Hood
If you are planning on situating your cooker hob on a kitchen island, then I have found the perfect kitchen hood for you.
Not so much a hood, but rather than a robotic pillar that rises out of the worktop at a mere touch of a button, this innovative hood includes an LED cooking light and superior efficiency over rival systems thanks to the ‘perimeteric extraction’ technology.

Smeg SI642D2 Induction Hob
Smeg are amongst the most stylish of kitchen appliance manufacturers, with the iconic retro-styled fridges being their flagship product.
As well as refrigeration, Smeg also produces some fantastic cooking equipment such as the imaginatively-named SI642D2 induction hob. Featuring four zones with independent boosters, nine power levels and residual heat indicators, this 60cm hob is the perfect companion for worktops in modern solid wood kitchens.

An awesome selection of kitchen appliances, I think you’ll agree. Whilst we don’t have them all on display in our showrooms, a wide range of other appliances from Franke, Neff, Falcon and other brands can be found in our deTerra kitchens showrooms nationwide.
Ta ta for now,
