The machine’s innovative design even enables the user to safely vacuum-seal liquids. With four automatic programmes to choose from, including a cycle for sous-vide cooking, the vacuum machine creates the ideal preservation conditions to ensure that long-lasting freshness demanded by top professional chefs.
The KitchenAid ice maker (KCBIX 60600) combines an elegant, durable design and professional performance to give luxury consumers perfectly made ice, when desired.

The machine can produce up to 10 kg of ice every 24 hours, with room to store up to 8 kg, meaning the consumer always has readily available ice when entertaining guests.
Perfect for budding baristas, the KitchenAid built-in coffee machine (KQXXX 45600) benefits from an elegant design, complemented by a range of functions. It boasts 15 quality coffee levels and the must-have steam function, which is perfect for frothing milk. With automatic 15 bar pump pressure you are assured of the perfect café crème every time. What’s more, the automatic, seven setting, coffee grinder ensures that each cup of coffee is a delicious creation with an incomparable aroma.
Managing space in the kitchen has never been easier with the KitchenAid refrigerated cooling drawer (KCBDX 88900) and its generous 150 litre capacity. The drawer is perfect for those who need additional storage space for refrigerating their fresh produce. With a dedicated wine area, two removable vegetable containers and an egg holder, the cooling drawer gives the user quick and easy access to their chilled ingredients on demand.
KitchenAid consumers put so much passion into their culinary creations; therefore it is only right that they should be served at the perfect temperature, just like in the finest restaurants. The KitchenAid warming drawer (KWXXX 14600) ensures that food is always served on a hot plate and can even keep food warm while the consumer is busy adding finishing touches or entertaining guests.
Finally, KitchenAid has created two stylish columns to enable consumers to vertically stack their appliances in a freestanding unit to create an impressive focal feature.
