Italian appliance manufacturer applies sophisticated Italian design, category-leading features for trends that transcend
Rosà, Italy (October 26, 2021) – Italian luxury appliance manufacturer Fulgor Milano has gained significant traction across the United States and Canada over the past few years with their professional European-style products created specifically for the North American consumer.
“European design can be avant-garde, but for appliances, the key is how they function. Making function beautiful with Italian craftsmanship is an art we work on every day,” says Gianni Meneghetti, CEO of Fulgor Milano. “Our appliance architects and craftsmen continue to develop products that embody the European influence but with a fit, finish and function that suits the needs of the North American homeowner.”
The Concealed Kitchen
European kitchens are notorious for their compact dimensions, requiring efficient use of space. Built-in appliances achieve a streamlined and practical aesthetic and have become more relevant in North America as homeowners aim to create multifunctional spaces. Overlay appliance panels have also increased in popularity, allowing for a more cohesive design and creating the illusion of a larger kitchen. Fulgor Milano’s Distinto built-in appliances include wall ovens, refrigerators, dishwashers, warming drawers, and coffee machines designed to fit seamlessly into any kitchen configuration. Overlay panels can be used with select appliances to match existing cabinetry.
Small Space Living
North Americans have embraced the small space living trend, with a growing emphasis on intentional design and maximizing minimal space. Smaller spaces are typical of European architecture, with historic cities playing host to tiny apartments. Fulgor Milano offers various sizes and product configurations, including cooktops and range tops for small islands, wall ovens, and more. The brand’s cooktops are available in 24”, 30”, 36” and 44” sizes to accommodate any kitchen layout.
Gourmet Cooking on The Fly
Demand is rising for multifunctional appliances that merge European culinary innovation with the on-the-go lifestyle of North Americans. Fulgor Milano’s new 30” Pro Steam Oven provides full convection, steam, and combi-steam cooking, with additional features including a built-in meat probe and broiler functions. This compact multifunction oven allows you to prepare gourmet meals in a fraction of the time and promotes wellness through stream cooking to ensure optimal vitamin retention. Another new offering from Fulgor Milano is the Combi Speed Oven, available in 24” and 30” models, which delivers the convenience of microwave, convection, and combination cooking methods in one compact appliance.
Europe is home to some of the world’s finest vineyards, with wine playing an essential role in many cultures. Without traditional wine cellars or dedicated storage areas in average homes, in-kitchen wine column refrigeration is becoming a common trend for entertaining due to easy access. Fulgor Milano’s Distinto and Sofia Built-In Wine reserves are ideal options for North American homes, available in stainless steel or panel-ready configurations.
Built-In Coffee machines
Since March of 2020, the at-home barista trend gained popularity due to limited access to local coffee stores and cafés worldwide. Fulgor Milano built-in coffee machines combine a coffee grinder, milk frother, coffee maker and espresso machine in one sleek appliance making it a popular addition to luxury kitchens. Available in 24” and 30” models, these machines perfectly complement the Distinto or Sofia Professional cooking lines.
“In addition to the European influence on style, emphasis on food preparation and embracing mealtime as a way to connect with others is making its way to North America,” added Meneghetti. “In European countries like Italy, France, and Spain, to name a few, celebrating cuisine is an important part of each culture. Fulgor Milano kitchen appliances allow the North American homeowner to elevate their daily culinary experiences, creating their own celebration of family and food.”
