Following the announcement of the limited edition black matte standing mixer, Benton Harbor-based KitchenAid today announced the expansion of its line of black stainless major appliances to include several new built-in and freestanding ranges and refrigerators. Originally launched in 2015, the collection will feature a total of 54 appliance models by the end of summer, including refrigerators, wall ovens, ventilation hoods, dishwashers, under-counter beverage centers, and more.
“The feedback we’ve received on our black stainless finish from consumers, the design community and even professional chefs when we first introduced it has been overwhelmingly positive,” says Beth Robinson, senior manager of brand experience for KitchenAid. “We’ve made it a top priority to expand our black stainless appliance portfolio to include even more options so that virtually any consumer can have a black stainless suite, regardless of their kitchen layout.”
New black stainless offerings include six models of slide-in ranges, freestanding ranges, and freestanding double oven ranges. Both models will be available in June and August respectively, and new refrigerator models will include 48 and 42-inch side-by-side models and a 36-inch French Door model.
Since introducing their first stand mixer in 1919, KitchenAid has expanded their line of products to include other countertop appliances, cookware, ranges, refrigerators, and more. It debuted the first dishwasher in 1949.
