Since these items are above my personal price-point, it's unlikely I'd see them otherwise.
A recent home included both the Dacor® 4-bottle wine dispenser and the Miele® speed oven, which were both new to me.
The 4--bottle wine dispenser allows you to have up to 4 bottles open and the unique valve system keeps them fresh for an extended period of time. The dispenser provides any amount ... a taste, a glass or a carafe in an instant and with the push of a button.
For this particular builder, he chose to install it in the built-in bar and in so doing, also decided to reduce the size of the wine storage vault. For more information about this wine dispensing system, go to the Dacor site.
The Miele® speed oven has the speed of a microwave, but gives you a better quality result and not the pale and rubbery food that can sometimes occur as a result of microwave cooking.
Wholly programmable it can cycle between microwaving and convection cooking to give the best result --- and also has a grilling/browning element that adds to the appeal of many foods.
Additional information about the Miele® Speed Oven can be found here.
Miele® seems to be taking a strong hold on our luxury residential market. I'm seeing an increasing amount of Miele® Steam Ovens, the Coffee/Beverage Station and the Combi Oven, but this is the first time I've encountered the Speed Oven.
This home also had a programmable jetted laundry sink. Like a jetted tub it is programmable and the series of customized bubble programs you set "vibrate" soil out of your delicates or a whole roster of fabrics ... pretty neat.
Can't wait to work on my next new construction job --- there's always something new to see, new to learn.
