Thermador and Traditional Homes Sponsor Great Kitchens Event In LA

I just returned from the Thermador and Traditional Homes Great Kitchens  Event in celebration of Traditional Homes Great Kitchens Issue.  The event was held at the Thermador Design and Experience 17,000 square foot showroom in lovely Irvine, California.  All I can say is wow!  I am blown away by the technology that has gone into making the Thermador products.  Not only are they beautifully made, but Thermador products are truly built for "real cooks".  Julia Child, the grande dame of gourmet cooking, chose Thermador for her own kitchen.  

Founded in 1916, by William E. Cranston, did you know we have Thermador to thank for being the original creators of the wall oven and stainless steel appliances in 1947? Here are the other products created by Thermador and the year they were introduced:

1948 - The first "pro range" 
1952 - The first "warming drawer"
1963 - The first "self cleaning" oven
1970 - The first smooth cooktop developed
            by Corning and used by Thermador.
1976 - The first "speed cooking" oven
1978 - The first "down draft"
1982 - The first "super burner"
1987 - The first "sealed gas burner"
1994 - The first "extra low burner"
1998 - The first "star burner"which
            is unique to Thermador thanks to trademark protection.
2002 - The first "jet impingment" oven
2006 -  "Modular refrigeration"and the first "convection warming drawer"
2008 - The "sensor dome"
2009 - The "first induction cooktop" with sensory technology and also the       "sapphire dishwasher" which had the largest wine glass capacity of any dishwasher on the market!
2010 - The "Steam & Convection" oven

Do you see what I see?  Thermador has been setting the industry standard for generations!  Why not go with the leader instead of the follower? I'll put my money on the company who is the industry innovator and that is definitely Thermador!
