high&dry

Our aim was to create a dishrack that was extremely functional yet sculptural. High&dry folds out from a flat and neat storage solution. The subtle wave of spikes creates a stunning visual wall, but more importantly a functional area to hold even your largest wine glasses or most delicate champagne flutes. By raising the glasses up, we have been able to make the dishrack more compact than other dishracks.  The design includes an optional drainage tray which has an ingenious flip-up spout so that you can choose to drain or not, depending on your kitchen setup. The tray is designed so that the water completely drains out when the spout is down so that you never have any stagnant water left in the tray.

Bosch AutoChef™ Induction Cooktop

Bosch Home Appliances is bringing an end to imperfect pancakes, runny eggs, fried foods that are burnt on the outside and raw in the center, and skillets that are charred beyond repair. These problems stem from the guesswork it takes to heat a pan to the right temperature and keep it at that temperature during cooking. The solution is a patented, exclusive, industry first for Bosch: AutoChef™ sensor cooking. AutoChef, featured exclusively on Bosch 800 Series induction and electric cooktops, works with a premium aluminum core pan that is included free with the cooktop. Its innovative sensor measures the temperature from the bottom of the pan and applies only the perfect amount of energy to the element in order to deliver precise cooking results without wasting energy. The cooktop heats to the desired temperature and makes an audible sound when it's time to place the food in the pan.
