Sub-Zero and Wolf announced new brand of luxury dishwashersSub-Zero and Wolf, the industry leaders in premium refrigeration, wine preservation and cooking equipment, announce their newest brand, Cove, setting a standard in luxury dishwashing. Engineered with the same commitment to quality, innovation and design flexibility as Sub-Zero and Wolf, Cove joins its kitchen counterparts in refrigeration and cooking. Five years in the making, the Cove dishwasher made its debut at the 2018 Architectural Digest show. Sub-Zero Wolf company worked hard to include everything a buyer might want in a super high-end dishwasher, such as: 1. Sturdy construction This made-in-Wisconsin machine has thick racks, coated with nylon to prevent scratching and breakage. 2. Cleaning ability With three spray arms and 43 jets, Cove aspires reach and remove food particles from all the dishes. 3. Flexible loading Green connectors indicate an adjustable part. Every tine is moveable, so even popular square-shaped dishes fit easily. The second rack has three height adjustments, and users can fine-tune them by adjusting each side separately. Of course, there's a third rack, though it's not deeper in the middle the way some brands make them now. But Cove lets users remove the silverware grids to admit really tall dishes. There's a silverware basket at the front of the bottom rack, so there will always be a place for knives, forks, and spoons. 4. Serious drying To get dishes really dry, Cove uses a hotter final rinse and a fan. Plus, the second rack, where two rows of glasses go, is angled to allow water to run off. 5. Quiet running Although the brand didn't provide a decibel measurement, it claims that the Cove offers near silent operation. Cove also has an "extra quiet" mode, which takes longer that its other cycles. 6. Connectivity Users can set up and start this dishwasher from an app.

Master Sous Vide Cooking with Miele’s Built-In Vacuum DrawerMiele announced the availability of the new Vacuum-Sealing Drawer, which is revolutionizing how people cook, prepare and store food. At 24-inches wide and featuring Miele’s distinguished PureLine design, the Miele vacuum drawer can be installed in seamless alignment with the combi-steam oven to provide an efficient working station for sous-vide cooking. Souse-Vide is a French term which means cooking “under vacuum. Sous vide is particularly ideal for meat and fish as this method allows herbs, seasoning and marinades to develop their full aroma without the flavor evaporating; the effect of marinating is even considerably enhanced. Low levels of moisture loss mean that meat and fish do not lose substance. This method cooks at a consistently low temperature over a long period which intensifies flavor while maintaining shape, vitamins and nutrients. On top of sous-vide cooking, the Vacuum Sealing Drawer can be used for preparing, storing and portioning foods for fresher and healthier meals. Miele also provides an attachment for vacuum sealing containers so food storage is made easier.
