Colors that pack high-octane hues, mixed metals, handless appliances and elevated food preservation are what’s next in appliances. The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in January will feature more than 50 appliance brands including new and industry favorites.
Here’s a sample of what’s coming to this year’s show.

This product category offers unmatched customization when it comes to refrigeration with improved usability and cooling for freshness and preservation.

The Outdoor Kitchen
Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet Shokunin Kamado Grill
The design of the new Shokunin Kamado Grill from Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet is sleek, sophisticated and a marvel of efficiency. It is the only kamado grill in the industry with a rectangular grilling area (432 square inches) that maximizes the available grilling surface and makes cooking with an offset fire much easier. It also features an adjustable fire grate system that allows for fires to be built in three different positions depending on the cooking style. You can expect five hours of cooking time per pound of charcoal when cooking at barbecue temperatures. That’s 40 hours of cooking on just 8 pounds of charcoal which is much more efficient than a traditional ceramic kamado grill. Heavy insulation also ensures the grill’s exterior remains cool to the touch even when interior temperatures reach 600°F.
Both its shape and stainless steel exterior complement other outdoor kitchen elements for a more streamlined aesthetic.
